Curaleaf Holdings has announced that it is partnering with two Massachusetts veterans organizations to recruit applicants as more than 50 new jobs have opened at the company’s Webster facility.
The vertically integrated marijuana company is adding the new jobs to its expanded grow and manufacturing facility in Webster and is partnering with Mass Fallen Heroes and Project New Hope Inc., according to a statement.
Through those partnerships, Curaleaf hopes to recruit qualified veteran applicants for the new jobs, the statement said.
“We are extremely honored to be partnering with Curaleaf on this and many other initiatives,” Mass Fallen Heroes Executive Director Dan Magoon said. “Like many nonprofits, this pandemic has seriously impacted our mission and our ability to serve our veterans and families of the fallen. Curaleaf has provided us much needed support during this challenging time.”
Curaleaf also plans to give donations to the two organizations in a celebration of the expansion of its adult-use and medical marijuana dispensary in Oxford.
“We are expanding our business at a time when many others are unfortunately closing in the Commonwealth, and we welcome the opportunity to provide much-needed jobs to those in the veteran community,” Curaleaf CEO Joe Lusardi said. “This effort also demonstrates the great growth potential of the cannabis industry, in Massachusetts and beyond.”
Some of the jobs available include cultivators, vault inventory associates and manufacturing associates. Applicants must be 21 years old and able to pass a background check. The openings are 80% full time and 20% part-time. Those interested can apply online.
“Providing assistance to these veterans’ organizations makes us a stronger company and community partner,” Curaleaf Massachusetts President Patrik Jonsson said. “Many of our veteran medical patients have shared their powerful stories with us and we are committed to helping them today and in the future.”
Curaleaf is headquartered in Wakefield and has dispensaries in Oxford, Ware and Provincetown. The company operates in 23 states with 92 dispensaries, 22 cultivation sites, 30 processing sites and employs more than 3,000 people across the country.
