The Department of Highways and Public Works builds and maintains transportation infrastructure, systems and programs to ensure safety for travellers and support economic growth within the Yukon. Our highways, bridges, and ferries connect our diverse population from over 14 culturally rich communities to our vibrant economy and the pristine Yukon wilderness. They are as critical to transporting people and resources safely into and out of Yukon, as they are to providing access to world-class fishing, camping and sporting events for recreation seekers.

We provide purposeful and meaningful work opportunities that foster innovation and collaboration. We value the contribution that each of us makes to the department and the territory, we celebrate our successes and support each other as well as life outside work—which is why we are also committed to helping our staff maintain a good work-life balance.

Leading a diverse workforce located across a large geographic region, you will report to the Director, Transportation Maintenance to manage the planning and coordination of Transportation Maintenance Branch special services programming. As part of a team whose work is integral to successful infrastructure rehabilitation and service delivery across Yukon, you will leverage your experience delivering senior management-level decision-making support to establish short and long term strategic plans, develop and administer policy and develop, analyze and control budgets. You will also manage projects, materials and contracts as well as provide IT support and staff supervision.

Essential Qualifications:
• post-secondary education in civil engineering, project management or related discipline
• experience providing strategic leadership and advice at the senior management level
• considerable experience managing financial and human resources
• experience in project management including managing contracts, budgets and supervising technical and professional staff
• experience managing highway construction and maintenance projects in a northern setting (preferred).

Candidates who have education, training or experience equivalent to the above qualifications will be equally considered.

Conditions of Employment: A valid Yukon Class 5 driver’s licence
Job Requirements: Travel throughout the Yukon

Approved candidates will be provided reimbursement of interview/relocations expenses, if required, in accordance with the Interview & Relocation Expense Directive.

We are the Yukon public service. Every day, we come together to serve the people who live here, and to make a difference in so many ways—from simple to extraordinary and everything in between. Here, you will find the diverse opportunities you desire to develop your career while enjoying a warm sense of community and vibrant artistic, cultural and recreational amenities, all set in a spectacular natural environment.
