Eden, marketing executive, shares how Stantec’s culture of support and development has advanced her career
In the My Stantec Story series, our designers, engineers, marketers, project managers, and leaders come together to share how their career journeys at Stantec have shaped their lives and moved them closer to their goals.
I specialise in digital communications and work in our One UK Marketing team. I enjoy how varied it is and how you can try so many new things out. I’ve found that the more you talk to other members in our global teams and across the business, the more you find out about digital marketing trends, new analytics tools, ways to improve what we are already doing, and how to engage with our technical teams to better externally promote the wonderful work we do.
I think Stantec’s emphasis on communities and how serving the communities we work and live in every day is something that really struck a chord with me. It’s great to work for a company that cares so much about our society and how we can contribute to it collectively to make it a better one for all.
Friendly. Collaborative. Inclusive. Stantec has 400 offices spread out across the globe, so I can guarantee you that no one day will ever be the same—and you won’t ever get bored! With such an international presence, Stantec has a wonderful, inclusive workplace that is inherently global. I feel as though I’m part of a global community of employees who genuinely enjoy what they do.
I think “we are driven to achieve.” When you have a positive and collaborative mindset, you feel that the work you’re doing is contributing to something greater and helps us all work together as a team to achieve our goals collectively. Sometimes, when things don’t go as you plan, or you’re not feeling that motivated, it helps to look at the bigger picture to see how far you have come and how much you have achieved individually, within your team, and across the business.
I recently decided to do my Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) qualification in professional digital marketing. This was something I wanted to do for a while, and it feels empowering to be supported by your manager as you do your studies alongside work. Stantec places great importance on the education, training, and professional development of all staff and how the Company can contribute to both personal and professional development. There’s great emphasis on professional qualifications, training courses, and how these can help you navigate your career path and design a truly fulfilling career that surpasses your individual goals.
Stantec is a unique collection of people across the world—all of whom are diversely qualified and each with distinguished knowledge that you can continue to learn from every single day.
Recently, I helped with the launch of Stantec.io, a project that showcases all our tech-enabled solutions that solve complex challenges for our clients and communities. Throughout the project, I learned about all the fantastic tools our technical teams were working on that solve real problems that people face every day—and how digital technologies are used to transform project outcomes to create better, more resilient communities that are fit for the future.
I felt very proud to be part of this project and it was an exciting experience as we got to work across several global marketing teams from graphic design to content marketing and showcase all these tools and solutions in one place. We were also able to experiment with various digital experience solutions to make the web pages more exciting and interactive.
If you want to work in a team where you’re empowered to take ownership of projects and see them through to the end, where you are recognised for the hard work you do, and can work with intelligent and passionate people along the way who can teach you more things than you can count—then this is the perfect team to join!
At Stantec, we are driven to achieve, and for Eden that means combining professional development and professional accomplishments. If you want to find a role at Stantec that fits your needs and aspirations, visit Stantec.jobs to look at our available positions.
