WSP is looking for a motivated Professional Agrologist (P. Ag.) or Professional Biologist (P.Biol.) to work with the Ecology and Environmental Impact Assessment Team to support and provide advice for ongoing and new transportation, municipal and natural sciences projects. The position is to be staffed in Calgary or Edmonton, with work locations throughout Alberta. This is a new role and leadership in market development and staff mentoring will be a portion of the responsibilities.
Key responsibilities will include some field work, and oversight of junior to intermediate personnel in completion of wetland assessments, environmental screening and recommendations, budgeting, cost control, client interaction, business development, and assisting with and completing proposals. The ideal candidate will have a background in wetland and biophysical assessment including soils and vegetation, as well as environmental planning and permitting for various projects in multiple disciplines. The candidate will have 5 to 10 years’ experience. The role will potentially blend field and office duties and may require travel within Alberta for short duration trips and assignments, and to provide mentorship and training to junior personnel. Proven problem solving and interpersonal skills will be a crucial asset.
This is a key assignment for the right individual, to provide support and growth of our natural sciences group in Alberta. Experience in the EIA process in Alberta or BC would be an asset.
Offers of employment for safety-sensitive positions involving fieldwork are contingent upon candidates being able to perform key physical tasks of the job as described in the job posting and interview. This may include the ability to work in a variety of environmental conditions, such as remote or isolated areas, working alone, and in inclement weather (within safe and reasonable limits).
