Best People…Best Projects

We believe that growing a company begins with our people. We look for those who are drawn to challenges that use every talent they possess, with the imagination, determination and drive to do the extraordinary.

Employees at MWH, now part of Stantec, are typically involved in a variety of projects. You’ll often find that MWH projects not only focus on the technical skills of design and construction, but also on the societal aspects of improving quality of life within our communities. Our employees often seek this blend of opportunities, with the ability to work flexibly as they grow their careers, and find satisfaction in their achievements.

Our Culture of Learning

MWH has invested highly in promoting a culture of learning and in managing our intellectual capital. Each year, hundreds of our employees take advantage of in-person and online technical, professional and  leadership learning programmes, through our MWH University, classroom training and online courses.

Employees from across our Asia Pacific offices share their personal experiences of working at MWH. Our employees work on a wide variety of projects and in many different industries. From transportation to water infrastructure and from engineering to construction, our collective skills help our experts have a global view on helping our clients achieve success.

MWH has given me the freedom to identify realistic solutions to challenging problems, and investigate historical legacies for an improved environmental outcome. It has been awesome to be able to identify practical lessons learnt so as to prevent creating new environmental legacies for future generations.
