Here are a few reasons worth considering ...
TransAlta knows you value your free time as much as your work. That’s why we offer sensible ways to balance obligations both at the office and at home. We offer sabbaticals for education, charitable work, and for reasons known only to you and those you care for. And, of course, we also offer a generous vacation package for all our employees … because we only get the best out of you when you’ve got some left for yourself.
Many plant operators and trade workers put years of effort into obtaining their certificates and journeymen tickets. TransAlta helps by supporting your efforts to further your operator's training or to obtaining a higher certification.
TransAlta funds the pension plans for all its workers and in most instances, employees have the ability to direct the investment of their pension funds in a manner that’s best suited for them.
With a variety of power plants in Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and Australia, we have a geographically and economically diverse portfolio utilizing different fuel sources that serve both regulated and deregulated markets.
TransAlta has been in business since 1911. More than a company with a proven past, we have a bright future as well.
TransAlta has been repeatedly recognized as a leader in corporate governance, sustainable development and is supportive of the communities in which it operates.
With more than 2,000 employees, $8 billion in assets, and more than 70 power plants, TransAlta is large enough for the most ambitious, yet small enough so you’re not lost in a crowd.
