Job Description

The Opportunity:

We are looking for a Superintendent to join our Remediation team in Port Hope. In this role, you will oversee daily operations on site, ensuring projects are completed within budget and on time. You will coordinate contractors, manage staff, and serve as the main point of contact for on-site activities.

This opportunity is to join the WSP team responsible for the execution and construction of the Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI). The PHAI represents the federal government's response to the community-requested solution for the cleanup and local, long-term, safe management of historic low-level radioactive waste in the municipalities of Port Hope and Clarington.

Please note we will consider candidates based in various locations throughout Canada, but this opportunity is based at the project site in Port Hope, Ontario
