You've got big plans. We have opportunities to match, and we're committed to empowering you to become a better you, no matter what you do.

With the support to do things differently, grow personally and professionally and bring your whole self to work, there's no limit to the impact you can make. Let's do this!

The opportunity:
We are looking for a Manager to join our Montréal-based infrastructure advisory team. We are specifically looking for someone with transportation economics experience, which includes professional experience generally associated with prefeasibility and feasibility studies to assess the socioeconomic benefits of transportation projects.

The incumbent will support our advisory team in charge of developing business cases as well as financial and economic analyses for major infrastructure projects in Québec, mainly serving public sector entities.

What you will do

  • Develop socioeconomic analyses as part of transportation project prefeasibility and feasibility studies. This will include assessing the economic impacts as well as economic/financial, societal and environmental costs and benefits.
  • Develop business cases and opportunities for alternative projects, in accordance with the Québec Treasury Board's framework policy.
  • Develop, review and oversee complex financial models and analyses to examine project costs and modes of financing.
  • Analyze how major projects are carried out and how options are analyzed based on multiple criteria.
  • Perform qualitative and quantitative analyses, especially involving statistics, semi-structured interviews, focus groups and literature reviews.
  • Prepare for and lead risk workshops to establish an appropriate risk envelope for an infrastructure project.
  • Develop quantitative and qualitative risk analyses ultimately aimed at establishing a capital budget based on project risks.
  • Develop innovative financing strategies for major infrastructure projects.

As a Manager, you will also:
  • Manage relationships with clients, engineering teams or other partners;
  • Manage internal teams and review the quality of deliverables;
  • Summarize analyses and broad findings in the form of compelling presentations and reports, in excellent French and English, using Word and PowerPoint;
  • Manage business development and the preparation of proposals.

What you bring to the role

  • Solid economic analysis capabilities, including experience in the areas of data collection, analyzing economic data and translating complex economic concepts into more simple and understandable terms. This experience should pertain to transportation projects.
  • At least 6 years of economic or financial analysis experience in a corporate or advisory environment.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills (English and French);
  • Solid communication, presentation and writing skills, including the ability to grasp and effectively summarize complex documents;
  • University degree in a related discipline (economics, finance). An engineering degree combined with a degree in economics/finance or an MBA would also be considered appropriate. A master's degree would be considered an asset, as would a professional designation (CPA, CFA, CBV).
  • Knowledge of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
