Lead Innovative Training Program and Transform Construction Careers

Join Haskell as a Craft Development Specialist, drive the industry-best Field Technical Training program and help talent flourish into industry leaders.


Ranked No. 1 in Training Magazine’s annual APEX Awards rankings, an exclusive list of the leading training organizations worldwide, Haskell takes great pride in the training and development of each of its more than 2,300 team members.

For its more than 100 Permanent Craft Employees (PCEs), Haskell created its Field Technical Training (FTT) program, an innovative and industry-leading instructional method that helps them expand their versatility, perform to a set standard across job sites, attain certifications and progress in their careers.

Now, it is seeking an experienced trainer to fill the role of Craft Development Specialist, the person who makes the FTT program go.

“We’ve spent the past six years building a foundation of training and development for the field,” said Mike McLauchlan, Director of Field Technical Training. We have the curriculum, and we have the support of the company. The support has been awesome. This position will give someone the opportunity to put your stamp on a powerful program and grow it into something truly special.”

In addition to providing a highly collaborative and fast-paced environment, Haskell operates with the direction of six strategic pillars, the first of which is to “Provide Team Members the BEST Job of Their Lives.” It offers a robust benefits package that includes a 401k match and an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), which creates stock ownership for every full-time team member.

Candidates should have field experience in construction, carpentry and mechanical work, including pipe fitting and pipe laying, and be comfortable delivering presentations. The successful candidate will spend about 75% of their time traveling to job sites, coordinating with the superintendent and instilling knowledge.

The FTT program takes a three-pronged approach to education, featuring videos to watch, textbooks to read and hands-on training to allow the skills to soak in. The wide-ranging curriculum includes courses on plan reading, construction layout, equipment operation, formwork, pipelaying, pipefitting and tilt-wall construction.

“We have extremely strong content,” McLauchlan said. “We just need to be able to have somebody to help facilitate. We want to make sure that we're affording those folks the opportunity to grow and develop into versatile craft people and the next set of construction leaders.

“To me, the rewarding part is watching these team members grow and develop into that next set of field leaders— because they will. There's talent there. It just needs to be molded and developed, and we need somebody to go and do that. The job is so rewarding, and Haskell is such a great company and so supportive of training and development – to me, that's the No. 1 reason to work for us in this role. It’s a great opportunity.”
