May 17, 2021

Manager, Linear Water & Wastewater Services

(Job Ref # 21-03)


At Chisholm, Fleming and Associates (just call us CFA), we understand that when it comes to hiring people, it’s not all about us, and that we also need to ask What’s in it for you? 


At CFA, there’s a lot in it for you. In exchange for being the great employee that every company wants to have, with us you get to:

  • Work in a diverse, collaborative, inclusive environment where people are encouraged to be creative, come up with new ideas and share what they think
  • Build on what you can do and know through hands-on learning, mentoring and training—whether you are at the beginning or your career or somewhere else along the way
  • Grow in more than one direction by being an important part of a smaller company— you’ll take on more responsibility, earn greater recognition for your work, gain more exposure to new practice areas, and have a bigger impact on the company’s success
  • Be a valued part of a company that knows that holding on to good employees has to be a core business strategy
  • Balance your work and life in an office that appreciates that life gets busy, too
  • Join a history of success at one of the oldest engineering consultancies in Ontario—we’ve been an important part of the province’s development for the last 65 years and we are now developing our new long-term vision with our revised Strategic Plan.

If this sounds like good reasons for working at a company, then consider joining our team!
