Resource Centre Services
Community Career & Employment Services can provide job seekers with local labour market information that can assist individuals to make informed decisions about careers, education, employment, and business plans.
The labour market in Norfolk County changes throughout the course of the year – mainly due to the change in seasonal opportunities. Spring and summer tend to bring an increase in agricultural positions, landscaping and construction jobs as well as openings in the hospitality industry (i.e. restaurant, retail). Some of these positions will continue year-round whereas others are deemed to be seasonal and ending in late October/early November.
