Virginia Natural Gas announced Thursday it is hiring “dozens of permanent positions” to be based throughout Southeast Virginia.

The positions are being added as the company expands its investment in its natural gas infrastructure modernization program, and to continue to provide quality construction oversight due to increased workloads, according to a news release from the company.

The new hires will also address the company’s aging workforce and workforce development plans.

The company is looking for candidates to fill full-time positions including project coordinators, construction inspectors and utility workers across its service territory in Hampton Roads.

“At Virginia Natural Gas, we recognize the impact COVID-19 has had on the unemployment rates in our region and the uncertainty it creates,” said Jim Kibler, president of Virginia Natural Gas. “We are moving forward with plans to add new full-time team members and provide critical employment opportunities during these challenging economic times.”

Virginia Natural Gas instituted a moratorium on disconnections for nonpayment, continuing service for those economically impacted by COVID-19.
