This requires an integrated team that can work across the water cycle to meet the industry-wide efficiency and environmental challenges.

  • Mentor colleagues to continue their journey to become world leaders in their field

  • Build lasting relationships with our clients and technical experts

  • Maintain Stantec’s high quality standards through our Quality Assurance process

This role can be based anywhere in the UK with the option of working out of any of our offices across the country, or flexible / homeworking arrangements available.
