A new job board website is now available to help connect propane companies in the Mid-States region (Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Illinois) with qualified job applicants. Called Propane Connect, the website at www.propaneconnect.org can be utilized by propane companies looking to hire new team members and job seekers within the region looking for career opportunities within the propane industry.

Propane is a reliable, safe and efficient energy source that has powered American homes, farms and businesses for decades. While many are aware of its use as in backyard grills, propane is a clean and versatile fuel that provides heat and hot water, powers fleets and forklifts and is indispensable on the farm and off the grid. Propane delivers dependable low-carbon performance, leading to increased demand for workers in this important American energy segment.

The Propane Connect initiative was created to help generate a strong workforce within the Mid-States region. Propane companies serving the five-state area can upload their employer information and view qualified candidates to find employees who will complement their business goals.

The propane industry offers job seekers a variety of situations, from multi-state providers to hometown family operations. In many cases, job benefits include joining a team of established professionals, receiving paid industry training and growing professionally while receiving competitive wages, medical insurance and more. Candidates can upload their resume to the site and see available jobs by region. Propane industry careers that are featured include transport drivers, delivery drivers, service technicians and customer service representatives. The new site also features career profile videos for different positions at propane companies to provide job seekers additional insight into potential careers.

“This is a project we’ve been really excited about,” said Steve Ahrens, Executive Director of MPGA (Missouri Propane Gas Association) and President and CEO of MOPERC (Missouri Propane Education & Research Council). “Developing a strong propane workforce is key to continuing to develop the industry and serve our propane customers across the region. Propane has a lot to offer, including great careers.”

The Propane Connect website can be used by propane companies and interested career applicants at no cost. Visit the Propane Connect website to learn more at www.propaneconnect.org.
