Stantec Marketing Specialist in Edmonton, Alberta
We’re active members of the communities we serve. That’s why at Stantec, we always design with community in mind.
A new bridge connects people through a variety of transportation options. A new library both supports education and inspires. A new community plan balances housing development and protects the environment. As part of the Stantec Marketing and Communications Team in the Edmonton Capital Region, you have a direct role in connecting over 22,000 employees working in over 400 locations to projects like these that positively impact our communities. At Stantec, our work thrives at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships—across a spectrum of professional consulting services including planning, engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, environmental sciences, project management, and project economics. As part of the Marketing and Communications Team, your role is to help bring our story to life and present it in creative and compelling ways.
About the Role
Do you love to strategize? Do you thrive in a fast-paced environment, managing multiple initiatives at once?
As a Stantec Marketing Specialist for the Edmonton Capital Region, your responsibilities will focus on proposal strategy, development, and production, and will also include advertising, conference and tradeshow support, client events, community engagement, general collateral, and communications development. This position requires someone who has strong marketing instincts and likes to connect with others —a team player who can coordinate and lead pursuit processes, communicate effectively, and maneuver the competitive environment confidently.
In this position, you’ll prepare high-impact proposals, presentations, and other marketing materials in alignment with the Stantec brand. You’ll be working closely with our technical practitioners to create engaging messages that set our firm apart from the pack.
A large part of your role will be to manage the proposal process from kick-off to delivery, including: analyzing the client request; structuring the response; developing a win strategy; assigning contributor responsibilities; coordinating internal schedules; gathering and customizing existing information; writing meaningful, original content; editing and managing reviews; and finally, producing a compelling document that clearly articulates the solution and value we are offering our client. You will contribute to the complete business development lifecycle, conducting capture planning activities prior to the bid period and supporting post-proposal client interview preparation and debriefs.
You’ll contribute to client development and account management efforts. You’ll help maintain Stantec’s internal systems for information management related to opportunity/lead tracking, people and projects, and promotional activity. And you’ll be a contributor toward Stantec’s internal and external communications networks.
Your Capabilities and Credentials
There’ll be many opportunities for you to put your proven experience to work within the Edmonton Marketing Team. Combining your business savvy with strong marketing sensibilities, you’ll look for creative ways to help us achieve our corporate and regional goals for revenue growth, profitability, and market leadership in selected markets.
You are an enthusiastic and driven individual with a healthy dose of competitive spirit. You are good at building relationships and have the confidence and assertive personality to establish your own internal network of contacts.You enjoy working with different personality styles and are comfortable interacting with all management levels. You have the interview skills to get the information you need, and the ability to lead/coordinate the team working on each proposal or marketing project. You are resourceful and self-motivated to find the answer. You have a strong sense of responsibility, integrity, and accountability.
You thrive on deadlines and somehow handle it all with grace and flexibility. While adaptable, you are also a bit of a perfectionist. You have an eagle-eye for errors and typos, and you want every product you produce to be the best it can be. You are imaginative and enjoy brainstorming new and innovative ways to communicate the message. You love to collaborate and be part of a team. You cheer on and back up your colleagues. Most importantly, you are genuinely passionate about your field of expertise and are energized by working with others to achieve a shared vision!
