7+years │ Laval (Hybrid)
Our client, Metaltech-Omega Inc. (“Metaltech”), is a privately-owned Canadian company with two distinct brands, covering two different markets but united by the same component: steel products and the design of new models. Metaltech is a scaffolding leader with offices in Canada and the United States, while Omega is a North American pioneer in welded mesh fencing systems. Metaltech-Omega has more than 15,000 points of sale in North America, and is part of a group of companies that includes Échafauds Plus and Cactusoft, which serve various markets: residential, construction, rental centers and industrial development. In total, the group employs over 540 people.
To meet their needs, our client is looking to hire a Director of Legal Affairs to be based out of their head office in Laval, on a hybrid work model.
