This opportunity is ideal if you have strong technical design skills as well as effective management, communication, multidiscipline coordination and organizational skills to manage projects and teams, and are looking to progress into a senior leadership role.  You will have excellent opportunities to grow with the company and become one of the company’s future leaders as we undertake major infrastructure projects.

  • travel within Canada and internationally

If you have a Canadian P.Eng. professional registration with eligibility for registration in B.C., P.E. (USA) professional designation would be an asset and have a minimum of 15 years of broad-based engineering experience including a proven track record of solid results and successful delivery of projects in port engineering or in other heavy civil projects with similar skills requirements, we want to hear from you.
