Reporting to the President & CEO and as a member of the Senior Management Team, you will have a major impact on how Yukon Energy generates energy in the Yukon. Leading and coordinating the planning, feasibility analysis, engineering and permitting of new generation and transmission projects, you will also play a key role in the projects’ financial modeling, Public and First Nations consultation and environmental compliance.

Who are you? You have a relevant university degree (in engineering or science), with 8-10 years of direct business development and management experience in identifying and executing creative, innovative business opportunities, preferably in the Energy sector. Your background demonstrates your comprehensive understanding of utilities and the energy project approval process, as well as your experience working with First Nations. An excellent communicator, negotatiating and relationship building come naturally to you. You thrive in a fast-paced and constantly evolving environment.

Who are we? A publicly owned utility with a talented workforce of about 90, Yukon Energy is the main generator of electricity in the Yukon.
