Rocky View Employment Services

Rocky View Employment Services (with offices strategically located in downtown Airdrie and downtown Cochrane as well as outreach services throughout Rocky View Communities) is an external service provider for the Government of Alberta.  Being a Government-funded organization, all of our services are provided to users at no-cost.  Rocky View Employment Services provides a wide range of employment-related services, guidance, resources and information to assist Albertans in making informed employment and career choices.

Our primary mandate is to help Albertans get jobs.

As part of Prospect Human Services, we have a strong track record of connecting job seekers to employers. 
In these very challenging economic times, employers can be facing a multitude of challenges (downsizing, recruitment and retention of quality candidates, the lack of time to sort through the large number of resumes received for a single posting).  We offer workforce solutions to help Employers bridge the gaps in their recruiting process. We service public, corporate and not-for-profit sectors.  We work with each industry to define the needs of YOUR organization.  We customize our services to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes.  Think of our assistive services as an extension of your current recruiting strategies (saving you TIME and MONEY!).
