Record number of new hires at the Pulp & Paper Division

J.D. Irving, Limited’s (JDI) Pulp & Paper Division set a record in 2023 for the highest number of new employees hired in a calendar year with 80 new full-time hires and 100 students brought on. 

Hiring occurred in all areas of operations across Saint John and St. George, New Brunswick including skilled trades, engineers and business professionals. The hiring was the result of retirements, business growth and normal workforce turnover.

“We are committed to investing in our people and growing a diverse pipeline of talent for generations to come,” says Mark Mosher, Vice President of the Pulp & Paper Division.

As part of the new cohort of employees, many were new graduates of Atlantic Canadian post-secondary institutions. This is demonstrative of the division’s strong co-op program, creating opportunities for local talent to easily transition from a student position to a full-time role.

The Pulp & Paper Division is continuing to recruit. You can see their current opportunities here:
