SABINE PASS, TX — Golden Pass LNG, in partnership with Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractor CCZJV (Chiyoda Corporation, McDermott International and Zachry Group), launched the Southeast Texas Workforce Guide, an online resource that connects students and job seekers with information about jobs with industry, including those being created by the Golden Pass LNG export project under construction in Sabine Pass.
CCZJV is hiring thousands of construction workers to build the new facility and Golden Pass LNG is hiring about 200 new direct employees to operate it. Golden Pass developed the SETX Workforce Guide to inform local residents about the range of job opportunities being created and provide a step-by-step guide on how to train and apply for them. There are construction jobs available for every skill level – even those without previous industrial experience – and a strong focus on local hiring.
“There are thousands of jobs needed to bring this project through to the finish line, from entry level helpers to experienced journeymen,” Tammy Mallaisé, Zachry Group’s Senior Vice President of People & Culture, said. “We are making it a priority to give local residents and businesses an opportunity to compete for these jobs, so we encourage anyone who is interested to check out the SETX Workforce Guide and find out how you can become a part of the team.”
The online guide is designed to help users learn about the industrial field, find jobs they’re interested in, get qualified and apply online. If you are ready for a new career, visit setxworkforceguide.com to get started.
Local business owners interested in working with the project should sign up for the company’s Local Business Initiative, a list of local vendors receiving priority consideration for work, at goldenpasslng.com/vendors.
“Golden Pass is committed to helping Southeast Texans take advantage of opportunities created by our project,” said John Fraser, Vice President of Operations for Golden Pass LNG, “The Southeast Texas Workforce Guide is just one example of the work we’re doing to make sure our neighbors who are interested in working with industry have the tools they need to start new careers.”
Golden Pass LNG is committed to the Southeast Texas community. Since the company broke ground on its export project in 2019, it has already hired more than 60 new employees and the joint venture has already begun hiring local residents from Port Arthur and the surrounding areas to support the construction project.
The SETX Workforce Guide is part of the Opportunity Roadmap, a series of initiatives launched in 2015 to help local residents take part in the company’s growth. Opportunity Roadmap programs have helped hundreds of residents and students learn critical professional skills like career planning and resume writing, provided small business development instruction to dozens of business owners, and sponsored scholarships for high school graduates to train in process technology and more.
