Poached Jobs Expands Hospitality Hiring Platform to Serve Cannabis Industry


June 26, 2024

Portland, Ore. — Poached Jobs, a trusted job board for the hospitality industry, proudly announces its expansion into the cannabis industry. As cannabis legalization gains momentum across the United States, the need for a dedicated platform to support small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) is evident. Poached is stepping up to fill this gap, providing tailored services to connect cannabis employers with a local pool of skilled professionals efficiently and transparently.

“We see the same entrepreneurial spirit in the cannabis industry as we do in hospitality, and our mission has always been to help small, local businesses connect with top talent,” said Kirk Thornby, CEO and Founder of Poached Jobs. “Cannabis employers and workers deserve a dedicated and transparent place to facilitate their connections, and Poached is ready to be that platform for the industry.”

Poached Jobs will offer services tailored to the cannabis industry, including job postings, a dedicated category, and tools to track applications, message candidates, and schedule interviews. Employers will benefit from an extensive database of qualified candidates. At the same time, job seekers will have access to many opportunities in various roles, from cultivation and production to retail and distribution.

“For years, we’ve considered adding cannabis as a category to our job sites, but with the labor shortages in the hospitality industry before and after the pandemic, expanding our focus just didn’t seem right,” Thornby shared. “Now, we’re seeing an influx of workers looking for jobs on Poached, and we’re excited to provide more opportunities for meaningful employment on our platform by opening up to cannabis employers.”

This expansion is pivotal for the cannabis industry, which has seen exponential growth and is projected to continue its upward trajectory. By leveraging its established platform, Poached Jobs is well-positioned to become the go-to employment resource for cannabis businesses in states where it is recreationally legalized.

Poached Jobs invites cannabis industry employers and job seekers to explore its platform’s new services and opportunities. For more information, visit:
