Our established Surrey office is looking to add a capable and enthusiastic Communities Engineer-in-Training to the existing team of professionals providing quality service to our clients. Municipal engineering is an integral part of our practice at Urban Systems. In this role, you will benefit from the support of industry professionals while working on exciting and challenging projects that make a visible difference in many communities including local governments and First Nations. Assisting in the planning, design, and consultation on several projects, you will be given as much freedom and responsibilities as you demonstrate you are able to handle. In addition to the unmatched learning and project experience you will receive, you can expect to be responsible for the following:

• Honing your civil engineering skills and developing an understanding of best practices in a practical, real world setting.
• Applying theory and providing workable solutions related to the implementation of engineering work regarding general municipal engineering including roads, water, sanitary, and drainage infrastructure design and planning.
• Acting as the clients' representative on-site during construction to gather information, conduct inspections, and ensure that designs are built to specifications.
• Building relationships with existing project leaders and clients.
• Providing accurate and timely input on technical reports, plans, studies, proposals, and oral presentations as required.
• Calculating cost estimates and preparing contracts.
• Proactively and professionally communicating with contractors, co-workers, clients, and the public.
• Demonstrating a commitment to learning through the ongoing achievement of personal and professional goals.

Due to COVID-19, the opportunity to work remotely and from home does exist, although, from time-to-time, we may need assistance with client work or face-to-face meetings. Therefore, the individual would need to reside in the South Coast.
