Position Summary

Are you searching for that perfect role that allows you to leverage your deep technical knowledge along with your strong change management and leadership skills, resulting in meaningful and positive change not only on your work area but within the community as well?

To ensure we are providing exceptional customer service and meeting legislative requirements, the City of Regina is hiring for the new position of Senior Engineer – Commerical Plan Review and Inspections. For this role we are seeking someone who can lead, direct and provide technical expertise in plan review and inspections as it pertains to institutional, commercial, industrial, and multi-family buildings. With your many years of experience in the commercial construction and inspection industry and as the City’s senior technical expert, the incumbent will assist the Manager, Building Standards, by leading key initiatives and by providing support in the leadership, management, decision making and operations of the Building Standards Branch.

One of the key responsibilities for this role is the overall management of the entire commercial permit process (from permit intake to occupancy) with accountability for creating standardized processes and implementing improvements to ensure service levels and legislative compliance are met. Day-to-day responsibilities include effective oversight, supervision and leadership of a staff of inspectors through, among other things, recruitment and selection, coaching, career planning, and performance management. The position also provides direction and technical mentoring to our engineering team responsible for plan review. Other accountabilities include making final decisions on disputed interpretations, reviewing complex proposed alternative solutions, and leading interbranch and interdepartmental teams in updating municipal bylaws and in managing complex and sensitive files.

Our ideal candidate is a strong people leader with vast knowledge of the National Building Code, National Fire Code, other building standards and legislative acts. This is typically gained through a degree in civil, structural, or mechanical engineering, and at least seven years in the fields of building design, construction, regulation, and fire protection. The successful candidate will thrive in conducting technical research to solve challenging problems and enjoy clearly and persuasively communicating ideas and recommendations on complex and politically-sensitive issues.

At the City of Regina work-life balance is very important and highly encouraged. As well, the City offers competitive wages, earned days off and a comprehensive benefits package that includes health and dental coverage, a defined-benefit pension plan, life insurance and much more.
