We’re looking for new talent to join us as we reinvent the future of energy. Across BC, we have a diverse team of more than 2,500 employees we can’t do without, yet we’re growing as fast as ever.

You may think we’re your standard utility that delivers natural gas and electricity, but we’re also into cool, innovative energy solutions. Think carbon capture, renewable energies and lower-carbon transportation for a start. We believe in creating a cleaner, healthier tomorrow.

If you like meaningful work, a dynamic environment and forward-thinking colleagues, build your career with us. You’ll get opportunities to grow, lead, solve, and create. So what are you waiting for? Let’s rethink energy together.

Position Overview

Not only do you have years of construction experience under your belt, but your knowledge of natural gas infrastructure is second to none. Safety for yourself and your peers is always your top priority, and all of your operations decisions are focused on safeguarding the well-being of everyone around you. If this sounds like you, you’ll be a great fit as our Operations Supervisor. 


In this role, you’ll oversee our Metro Vancouver region construction employees and activities, maintaining the safety of your teams and the integrity of assets and equipment in your area. 
 

Collaboration comes naturally to you, and you value building connections with your colleagues to create a welcoming, safe and inclusive workplace. You’re always looking for ways to continually improve processes and procedures and develop your skills to best lead your team. 
 

We pride ourselves on serving energy to our customers sustainably, safely and reliably. With the skills and values you bring to the table, we want you to join us in rethinking our energy future. 

In year 1, you will:

  • Familiarize yourself with the software and applications used to schedule and complete deliverables on time and within budget.
  • Foster a collaborative and inclusive work environment.                               
  • Champion our safety culture to safeguard against accidents and injuries. 

In year 2, you will:

  • Expand your knowledge of resource and administrative budgets. 
  • Develop relationships with external stakeholders and municipal contacts.
  • Partner with peers and internal stakeholders in developing strategic initiatives to drive operational excellence.

What it takes:

  • Five years of management experience with a focus on natural gas infrastructure.
  • Post secondary diploma considered an asset.
  • Previous experience in construction, underground utilities, and emergency response is an asset.  
  • A passion for developing quality solutions with a safety-focused mindset.

Our engaging workplace offers a wide range of challenging opportunities, while being safe, inclusive and diverse. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, while supporting life-long career development. We also encourage volunteerism and nourish the need to give back to your community.

 

Safety is our number one priority, and to maintain the health and safety of our employees and broader communities, we have a number of COVID-19 safety measures in place. This includes a requirement for all new employees to provide proof of full vaccination, prior to their first day of work or the start of their employment. And of course, we will consider an accommodation for anyone who’s unable to be vaccinated due to a protected ground as defined by the Human Rights Code.
