Creating the safe, sustainable municipal infrastructure that makes Toronto so livable is the responsibility of our Engineering & Construction Services (ECS) Division, which provides specialized engineering design and construction services to Toronto Water, Transportation Services, Solid Waste Management Services and other City of Toronto Divisions, Agencies, Boards and Commissions and external clients such as the development industry, utility companies and other public agencies.
As a Senior Engineer in the Linear Underground Infrastructure Section, you’ll provide project management, contract administration, technical and engineering expertise in the planning, design and construction of multidisciplinary linear basement flooding capital works projects involving storm and sanitary sewer upgrades and other stormwater management infrastructure such as ponds and tanks. The works will also include associated state of good repair roadworks and watermain replacements. These projects are generated as part of Environmental Assessment studies aimed at mitigating the risk of basement flooding, and will call for you to oversee, review and direct the work of staff and engineering consultants, as well as engage consultants and/or contractors by preparing construction tender packages.
Full project management accountabilities
Leading by example, you’ll manage a variety of assigned engineering projects, with responsibility for project management of ongoing or annual City-wide engineering programs, special projects, engineering proposals, Capital Works Program, best practices and other program development and new initiatives. This will see you directing multi-disciplinary project team staff, and mentoring other professional engineers and technical personnel, to meet deadlines and ensure effective teamwork and communication, high standards of work quality and organizational performance, and continuous learning, while controlling expenditures within budget. You’ll assist in preparing capital and operating budgets, perform site inspections and assessments of changed conditions on construction projects, ensure compliance within guidelines by acting as a signing authority, finalize contract payments and implement quality control/quality assurance for construction. As a Senior Engineer, you may be required to facilitate complex cost-sharing arrangements for the construction of municipal infrastructure.
Driving technical innovation and continuous improvement
Recognized for keeping current with technological developments in the field of engineering, you’ll conduct research into your assigned area, ensuring that it takes into account developments within the field, corporate policies and practices, legislation and initiatives by other levels of government. Equipped with this up-to-date knowledge, you’ll provide specialized design services and technical advice and expertise to support varied units, modifying established guides, devising new approaches, applying existing criteria in new ways, and drawing conclusions from comparative situations. The Division will also rely on you to formulate recommendations based on your analysis of continuous improvement and control measures for quality, efficiency and effectiveness of services, and your review of new technologies for utilization in existing or future service requirements.
Managing stakeholder expectations and communications
An effective communicator – verbally and in writing – at all organizational levels, able to effectively convey technical information in a user-friendly manner, you’re adept at working collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team, contractors, colleagues, elected officials, consultants, developers, and other internal and external clients and stakeholders. These skills will enable you to represent the Division at meetings with the public, stakeholders and Councillors, and act as a technical specialist at project and organizational meetings with varied stakeholders. You’re also well prepared to establish and maintain linkages to other units in the City to co-ordinate input and ensure effective partnerships.
Among the other strengths you bring to the role of Senior Engineer will be the following key qualifications:
- Extensive experience applying the principles of engineering for municipal public works infrastructure.
- Extensive project management experience from inception to implementation, including planning, design and construction of municipal public works infrastructure.
- Considerable experience in developing reports, RFPs/proposals and presentations.
- Considerable experience in client management and communicating with a diverse group of stakeholders.
- Registration with Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), or licensing as a professional engineer in good standing in another Canadian engineering association with the ability to obtain a P.Eng. licence with PEO.
You bring extensive knowledge of legislation, including the Occupational Health and Safety Act and its regulations for construction projects, along with knowledge of asset management principles, including data collection, analysis and estimating. You’re also known for your ability to read, interpret, and report on engineering plans and drawings, specifications, correspondence, reports and other documents in a timely manner, conduct studies, surveys and research, develop effective solutions to engineering issues, initiate and lead technical studies and projects, and plan and prepare reports and recommendations.
Equally important in your role as a member of our team, you have what it takes to support the Toronto Public Service values to ensure a culture that champions equity, diversity and respectful workplaces.
A valid Province of Ontario Class "G" Driver's Licence, with an ability to drive to different sites in a timely manner, is also required. Applicants are required to demonstrate in their resume/cover letter that their qualifications match those specified in the job posting.
