Your Opportunity

We're active members of the communities we serve. That's why at Stantec, we always design with community in mind. The Stantec community unites approximately 22,000 employees working in over 400 locations across six continents.


Our Water sector, which brings together many of the world’s top engineers and scientists, sees water a bit differently—as a single holistic system rather than as unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries.


We’ve recently strengthened our presence by completing the acquisition of engineering services firm, MWH Global. This means more career opportunities for you in consulting, design, and construction for the water and natural resources sector globally.


We are excited that MWH has integrated fully into Stantec and we are now collaborating on even bigger and more exciting large-scale projects that make a difference in our communities.  With MWH joining Stantec, we are now a global player in the water / wastewater market!


Our dynamic and exciting collaborative culture will give the selected candidate the opportunity to thrive and further their career. 


We are currently seeking a highly motivated Administrative Assistant for our Water group in the Surrey, BC office to support our multiple project teams and assist with all office operations.  We are located at a SkyTrain Station for commuting convenience.

Your Capabilities and Credentials
