Help us drive our technical innovation

Flexible location across the UK

Over recent years we have seen heavy investment in infrastructure and urban regeneration as a means of stimulating economic growth, facilitating growth and supporting housing delivery.

Our clients are being challenged by Government to build back better. We are being continually challenged by our client to develop more cost effective solutions, to find new ways of reducing their carbon impact, and to support the creation of social value through their projects.

Our challenge is to anticipate these needs, to foster and guide creativity across our teams, and to support the development of the new solutions and learning needs of our people so that we can deliver the services needed by our clients when they need them.

We have a fantastic opportunity for a Technical leader to play a key role in establishing Stantec as a trusted, top tier consultancy.

You will work closely with our Discipline Leads to identify and drive innovation to further develop our technical services to meet changing market drivers.

  • As part of our future planning we have identified some early key initiatives that you would look to build and expand upon;
  • The establishment and maintenance of global knowledge sharing groups beneficial to UK clients eg Urban Places, Smart Cities and Smart Mobility to ensure we are capitalising on wider skills;
  • The development of a long term programme of innovation and supporting funding proposals;
  • The development of an engaging, informative and inspiring interdisciplinary consulting development programme;
  • The development of our digital services and new digital solutions;
  • The delivery plans for significant carbon reduction in our design processes, including the deployment of PAS 2080; and

  • The establishment of an efficient platform for work-sharing across geographies ;
  • Your success will be achieved through strong cross-collaboration with our Discipline Leads. Your creative, informative, persuasive and influencing nature will ensure the technical community will support your continual drive for technical innovation, demonstrated by your ever growing pipeline of initiatives.

    We will give you every opportunity to develop a place of technical excellence. The opportunity of continual innovation in an ever changing landscape should excite you.

    This opportunity can be based near any of our Stantec offices throughout the UK.

    About You
