Leigh Adamsky

Contracting Assistant in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada

As soon as someone steps foot into an airport, their personality changes.


My name is Leigh.

I graduated from Humber College (Toronto, ON) with a Bachelor of Commerce, specializing in International Business.

My favourite course was International Logistics.
Why, you may ask?
It's because of the risk, the tangibility, and the ever-changing and fast-paced environment.

I currently live in the great White North of Canada (the lovely Yukon Territory), and work for a branch of the Yukon Government called Energy, Mines and Resources.

I work with a small contracting team, and we take care of all the procurement for the abandoned mines in the Territory.

How much procurement can there be for abandoned mines you may ask? A lot.
We help procure care and maintenance providers for each of the sites, and then write contracts for work/services that take place (such as monitoring, earthworks, and remediation).

In my previous job, I was a flight attendant!
I worked long hours (especially in the summer), got to practice my French speaking skills, and see a bunch of places I never thought I would travel to.
I also got to meet a lot of amazing people and learn how to handle ridiculous (and emergency) situations without breaking a sweat.

Having different jobs over the years, I have learned what exactly I'm looking for in a new role/organization. I am looking for the following:

1. Room for advancement.
I want to learn and develop new skills that will take me further into a career.

2. To be a part of a bigger picture.
I want to be a part of a project, or a team that makes things happen.

3. Work culture.
I want to work with/for people who are open to new ideas and who love what they do.

I don't plan on leaving the Yukon Territory anytime soon, but I'm always interested in exciting, and upcoming opportunities.
