Environmental Project Manager

• Engineering, geological science, or environmental science degree
• Significant local knowledge and strong experience in midstream and/or upstream oil and gas
• Willingness and ability to perform remote field work as required
• Well connected within the local environmental services community and a solid understanding of business opportunities in Fort St. John and northern BC
• Based in Fort St John

We’re SLR, a global consulting firm delivering over 30 technical disciplines around the world to help our clients reach their environmental and sustainability goals. With over 25 years of experience, our ambition is to be recognized as a global leader in environmental and advisory solutions.

As our new Environmental Project Manager, you will play an important role on a team whose work is essential to achieving this goal.

To succeed in this role though, you’ll need two things: significant local knowledge gained from living and working in the communities Fort St John and northern BC, and at least ten years of experience working as an environmental consultant within the upstream energy sector and with the key players in oil and gas.

A combination of skills in site assessment, remediation, regulatory closure, or biophysical sciences will take care of the technical requirements for this job, while a strong understanding of how to pursue business opportunities in the region will cover much of the rest. Your local and regional connections and existing client relationships will complement our existing business and help drive the expansion of our services throughout the area.

It should go without saying that this role is not for someone looking to sit in an office all day. This is an ideal position for a motivated and outgoing individual passionate about expanding their career in environmental consulting. You will receive support from our B.C. and Alberta teams, but to be successful, you will need the confidence and drive to flourish independently. You’ll need to be out in the field as required, and comfortable leading fieldwork programs in remote locations.

If you are the right person, this is a unique opportunity to bring your expertise to a highly engaged team, where your efforts and impact will be recognized and valued immensely.

Specific tasks will include:

• Project Management – managing, coordinating, and participating in the successful delivery of complex, multi-disciplinary projects
• Technical Delivery – preparation and/or review of technical correspondence, reports, work plans, and project specifications
• Business Development – develop professional networks, and actively seek opportunities to expand our business throughout the region
• Understand the interconnectedness between disciplines (e.g. hydrogeology, acoustics, air quality, permitting, ecology, engineering) in order to propose full-scope solutions to meet client needs
