Why work for the Town of Canmore? For starters, you can take great pride in our collaborative organization, its positive work culture and our amazing group of talented people who genuinely care about the environment, community sustainability and accomplish outstanding work each and every day to lesson our community impact on the rocky mountain landscape. You will have the opportunity to work with a team that is professional, fun, dedicated and passionate about creating a more environmentally, socially, economically and politically resilient community for present and future generations to thrive.
Position Overview: As an integral member of our public works group, you will have the opportunity to support diverse teams of talented professionals and community stakeholders in our mission to build a more adaptive, resilient and environmentally sustainable community. You will have the opportunity to provide advice and guidance to multi-disciplinary teams contributing your expertise on applied climate adaptation and resilience projects throughout the organization and community. This is the perfect job for someone who desires to make meaningful and direct impacts in the community through the use of their strong innovation, research and project management skills as you explore opportunities for increasing climate resiliency and adaptation capacity within the organization and community.
