Edmonton, Alberta

Health, safety, environmental hazards – these are more than just buzzwords for you.

As a skilled environmental professional, they are what you’ve dedicated your career to.

You’re passionate about creating safe environments in which people can work and live without risk to their health.

So are we. We’re T. Harris Environmental Management, a leading Canadian environmental consulting firm, established in 1979.

These projects include (but are not limited to) services like: environmental site assessments and remediation, soil, groundwater, drinking water, environmental compliance approvals, and air quality projects.

You’ll come equipped with technical expertise and strong project management skills, which you’ll use to schedule, coordinate, and oversee technicians’ field work and data collection. You’ll make sure the information gathered and reported is accurate, and that projects remain on budget and on time. You will ensure client satisfaction, serving as their main contact from project start to completion.

You will also serve as a leader to your team. Your job will go beyond directing, monitoring, and assessing their work – you’ll also mentor, train, and keep them engaged with their work and our business. And you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty – you’ll lead by example in the field, when required.

As you build a team that you can trust with the day-to-day, you’ll be able to focus on the bigger picture – working with clients and identifying new partnership opportunities. The best in this role will have the initiative to expand their network and do outreach to prospective clients. As an environmental subject matter expert, you’ll be in a prime position to help us grow our business.

With your experience in environmental consulting and project management, you’ll be ready to jump right in here. And while your experience will be the foundation of your success, you’ll thrive in this role because you are:

  • Growth-focused – you have big dreams for your team and the business. You have a vision for growth and will enjoy the challenge of achieving it.
  • Team-focused – you strive to develop strong working relationships with your team built on trust, respect, and integrity.
  • Business-focused – you have strong business acumen, and a solid understanding of the client, risk, and financial management involved in successful project completion.

The Details

This is a full-time permanent position working out of a remote Edmonton office. You’ll typically work Monday to Friday, during standard business hours. You’ll travel locally to visit clients and job sites. There is potential for occasional provincial or inter-office travel.

Along with a comprehensive benefits package, you’ll earn a competitive salary (commensurate with experience).
