Communities are fundamental. Whether around the corner or across the globe, they provide a foundation, a sense of place and of belonging. That's why at Stantec, we always design with community in mind.

We care about the communities we serve—because they're our communities too. We're designers, engineers, scientists, and project managers, innovating together at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships. Balancing these priorities results in projects that advance the quality of life in communities across the globe.

The opportunity | Ko te āheinga

Your long-term career with one of the top ten design firms in the world starts here. As a member of our global community of driven, passionate, and smart professionals, you'll have a chance to grow and develop as a future leader and innovator, work with other colleagues who offer fresh perspectives, and learn the foundation of engineering, planning and consulting in the client environment.

I started out as an intern during my university summer break. This gave me a great opportunity to see what Stantec was like. If they were the type of company I could see myself working for the long term and equally, to see how I would fit in with the Stantec team.
