We are looking for a Project Engineer with experience in Distribution Design to take on a contract role based in the Burnaby area. With over 10 years’ experience in the engineering and construction industry, our client is an industry leader specializing in the electrical utility design. They look to empower every single one of their employees whilst providing a customer-focused, safe and innovative service to all clients.

About the Role

Without breaking down the intricate details of what an Electrical Engineer does day to day (because we aren’t electrical engineers), this role requires someone who can lead and support the design of underground and overhead electrical distribution & transmission infrastructure throughout the life-cycle of a project. Ideally, we also require someone who is able to understand the realm of BC Hydro. If you have experience working with BC Hydro distribution designs and have a history of working for/or liaising with BC Hydro – we want to speak with you. As an added bonus, if you enjoy guiding junior engineers/designers, this role gives you the opportunity to mentor and pass on your industry knowledge to up and coming professionals.

If you have done solely substations and transmission design – this is not the right role for you.

Contract Details

This is a 6-month full time contract with the opportunity to go permanent. We are looking at an hour rate of between $55 - $70, depending on the experience of the individual.

Role Requirements

  • Engineering Degree or Diploma (Electrical Preferred)
