Employee Spotlight: Celebrating Jade Mayham’s Success at ServcoCanada
Jade Mayham, a talented ServcoCanada Project Administrator, began her story with the company in 2020, when she participated in an On the Job Training (OJT) Apprenticeship Program through a joint venture called Northern Maintenance Services (NMS).
ServcoCanada’s subsidiary, NME Construction Services Ltd., formed NMS joint venture with Cree Nation partners, in 2012 to pursue projects through Manitoba Hydro and the Keeyask Infrastructure Project.
Within this joint venture, the OJT Apprenticeship Program was created in 2015 to form a long-term structured partnership with Cree Nation partner members and give participants an education and skillset to take back to their communities.
More specifically, the program was designed to increase capacity in areas such as contract administration, construction management, apprenticeship, and qualification in skilled trades, as well as provide overall employment opportunities.
Jade started the OJT program without any related work experience. Since then, she completed the program as a Level II Professional Administrative Clerk. She has continued growing her career, starting her current position as a Project Administrator in January 2023 at ServcoCanada’s head office in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Reflecting back on the start of her career, Jade shared, “Being hired under the OJT program with NMS has given me the opportunity and inspiration to achieve career goals in an industry I never thought I would succeed in.”
Since becoming a Project Administrator, Mayham has become an integral part of our team, working closely with our estimating team, schedulers, construction managers, project engineers, and our clients. She provides real-time cost and schedule tracking, issues pricing requests, and procures project material and equipment. She enjoys the fast-paced nature of the role and the opportunity to create solutions and streamline processes.
Jade’s colleagues and supervisors love working along side her and recognize her accomplishments and talent. They describe her as a proactive and trusted teammate, who has superior attention to detail.
