Manager, Civil Engineering

We are looking for a Manager to lead our Civil Engineering Division in our Burlington office. This team creates civil engineering solutions for mostly industrial, institutional and residential projects in the GTA & Greater Golden Horseshoe area.

This is an incredible opportunity for someone looking to advance their career by taking on a senior management position in our company.

Are you someone that:

    • Is driven by the challenge and success of growing a business.
    • Wants to support and grow a team.
    • Wants to improve project delivery processes and financial results.
    • Finds training and mentorship of junior staff the most rewarding part of your job.

Like running a small business, this role involves growing a team:

The Civil Engineering Division Manager leads a team of over 25 people that includes Civil Engineers, Project Managers, Designers, Inspectors, and CAD Technologists in our Burlington office. The team produces servicing, grading, and stormwater management solutions for development projects across Ontario.

While everyone on the team works together to deliver projects and keep our clients happy, the Division Manager ensures that staff are enabled to do this and are supported to carry out their day-to-day tasks successfully.

Ultimately, you are responsible for the success of the Division. A tall task that involves empowering staff to develop their skills through mentorship, training and project work.

Each year the Division Manager creates a business plan for their Division that outlines their short and long-term goals for maintaining and growing their business. Throughout the year, you will manage and report on the progress of your team, plan and budget.

But without the risk and challenges of running a small business:

You won’t be going this alone. The previous Division Manager has recently been promoted to the Operational Director position for the Burlington and Toronto offices. Kayam Ramsewak will be a resource to you, having led and grown this team over the past 10 years.

You will also have the full support of the other Division Managers in the Burlington office, who are also growing their teams. They will help you as you navigate this role, advocating for the success of the Burlington office.  They have all been working together for over five years and meet regularly to collaborate on business and staffing opportunities and challenges, business development strategies and to ensure the overall success of the office.
