Caesarstone Technology is having a job fair for management positions from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday at the Georgia Department of Labor’s Savannah Career Center at 5520 White Bluff Road.
The company expects to begin production as early as January.
This is the first of two scheduled job fairs for the company, which also has one scheduled for Nov. 18 at the Richmond Hill City Center, according to Beth Nelson, human resources manager for the company’s Richmond Hill Facility.
The job fair set for Monday is to fill about a dozen manager and team leader positions, Nelson said. Experience in industry and manufacturing is required for some management positions, but the company is also looking for those with leadership experience for team leader roles. Veterans and military are encouraged to apply for team leader positions, said Nelson, who is retired military and lives in Richmond Hill.
Pay for the jobs will be commensurate with experience, education and certification, she said.
All applicants should come dressed to interview and have resumes, references, certifications and their supporting documents in hand and also be prepared to fill out applications.
“This isn’t just a drop off your resume job fair,” Nelson said. “Come prepared. We’re searching local rea for all the talent and trying to make sure we try to fill positions with the local population before we have to go out further.”
Candidates at Monday’s job fair will be screened first by Georgia DOL staffers to make sure they have the qualifications. Those who do will meet Nelson and her staff, who will take applications and set up interviews with Caesarstone Technology President Jacob Dory and the company’s global vice president of human resources, Lilach GIlboa.
The company’s second job fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 18 at the Richmond Hill City Center is to fill the remainder of the company’s jobs by the end of the year, Nelson said, and in all the company will employ about 180 workers.
Caesarstone is based in Israel. The company broke ground on its $120 million investment at the Belfast Commerce Centre in Richmond Hill in November 2013. It is the first manufacturing facility to go into the new industrial park off Belfast Siding Road.
Nelson said the company plans to begin production in January.
