Stantec Technical Discipline Leader – Ground Engineering in Flexible, United Kingdom


Requisition Number:



We have an exciting opportunity for the right professional to take over the leadership of our Ground Engineering discipline, which encompasses our Geotechnical Engineering and Land quality/remediation teams. This is not a full-time role as, outside of the above duties Technical Discipline Leads (TDL) spend a portion of their time supporting projects and bids.

The TDL role will allow personal and professional development in functional leadership and a chance to shape our Ground Engineering resources and capabilities to meet the challenges of the future.

The TDL will report directly to the EA Design Head of Engineering and will be accountable for:

• Communication and implementation of leadership strategies throughout the technical discipline

• Developing discipline capability to meet the needs of our business and our clients

• Working with the Resource Managers to identify and resolve recruitment and resourcing needs

• Professional discipline standards, including legal and professional obligations

• Identification and support of professional and career development needs

• Discipline specific workflow, standards, tools and guides

The TDL will also liaise with our environmental services team to facilitate co-ordination in a number of fields including resourcing and business development.

The TDL will manage and be supported by Regional Discipline Leads, to cover the geographical dispersion of Ground Engineering resources across EA Design and will liaise with allied discipline TDLs to ensure cross discipline collaboration, particularly recognising that many staff have capabilities and aspirations beyond a single discipline.

The TDL will work with the relevant Market Sector Leads to provide discipline support of the strategic development of Stantec service offerings and alongside the Technical Directors and Specialists to ensure that Stantec has excellent technical skills and expertise, supported with strong processes, procedures and design tools, now and in the future.
