Engineering Leaders Are Critical

Engineering managers are essential for overseeing projects, people and processes. They inspire new ideas, create plans and initiatives, build teams and communicate effectively. The role has always been an important one, but in times of crisis the need for leaders is underscored. Engineering managers are critical to their teams as they oversee large-scale projects and operations to keep industries running smoothly.

Randstad lists a number of industries trending during the pandemic, including engineering and architecture. Building sites related to critical infrastructure, transit and housing remain active, they noted. Affordable housing is a concern and, as a result, a variety of engineering jobs are in high demand in some Canadian provinces.
