This is a Full-time position in Vancouver, BC posted October 29, 2021.

You’ll want to create a new profile and job alerts as anything you set up before October 6, 2021 will no longer function.

We are currently seeking a highly motivated individual to join our Efficiencies, Readiness and Optimization (ERO) team focused on driving efficiencies within field operations.

This exciting Senior Strategy Manager role is focused on the development and execution of strategic programs to support CSD and CNOE operations.
