Senior Civil Engineering Project Manager - Canada

Have you been looking for the right challenge to take your career overseas?

Due to continued growth, one of Canada's Top 10' contractors are now recruiting for Senior Project Managers and Directors to join their team in Western Canada. There are positions in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto.

This is potentially a great chance for you to expand on your current experience by moving to a country with a strong pipeline of construction investment, particularly within public infrastructure. Whilst Canada has different construction methods to the UK, there are many similarities and Canada is now adopting more of the framework & NEC approach seen over here.

As the growth is in public infrastructure, we're looking for Senior Project Managers and Directors with experience in areas such as light rail / trams, water, utilities, roads or bridges, with a track record of successfully delivering projects from £10m to £50m +.

Your duties will include:

• Managing multiple contracts from both a financial and operational perspective
• Delivering the project in accordance with design, budget and schedule
• Working closely with the business development team to identify and explore potential opportunities with new and existing clients
• Assisting with the review and negotiation of contracts
• Coaching and providing direction to your teams
• Monitoring and controlling progress, costs and budgets throughout the life of the project

It is desirable that applicants will hold a degree/college qualification (or equivalent) relating to construction/engineering, but other qualifications combined with experience will definitely be considered.

In addition to an excellent salary, this employer are very experienced in assisting new employees to relocate from the UK and are happy to assist with the full process, both financially, with visa applications, and in general support.

Should you wish to have a confidential conversation in regard to your own situation, or discover more about what it might be like to emigrate to Canada, please contact Alan Shave, Associate Director.

Armed with all that knowledge he jumped at the chance to lead our permanent recruitment section in 2014, with the challenge of growing the team and developing our offering, while making sure that the ‘Contract Scotland way’ remained at the heart of everything we do. In 2016 Alan took on the role of Associate Director and is now involved with all the fun strategy & operational stuff! His proudest achievement is taking the business to parts of the world we never thought we would, as well as helping some of our ‘newer’ colleagues develop into great recruiters.
