Engineering Internship Co-op Project Assistant - Victoria BC (4 month term)About the Company
Campbell Construction Ltd. is over 50 years old and the largest general contractor on the Island. We are a union company and have over 300 employees and specialize in concrete formwork, placing and finishing, wood framing and have our own millwork shop. At Campbell Construction we’re constantly pushing the limits - propelling ourselves toward bigger and better opportunities, while exploring new market sectors and services. So it only seems natural that we'd hire people who have their own voice and aren't afraid to use it. They follow a path of continuous learning with an innovative spirit that leads them to be recognized as leaders in the industry. We hire these types of people knowing they are as diverse as we are, and they come on board because they share our core values. Then we simply give them the freedom to take their career (and Campbell Construction) further.Picture the Possibilities

- Evan Cambridge - “Working with the Campbell office staff allowed me to feel like I was truly part of the team. I had several colleagues acting as mentors who showed me the ins and outs of the commercial contracting world. My duties as Project Assistant were also significant to the project budget and schedule, which gave me a sense of purpose and motivated me to do well”
- Param Bhatti - "My time at Campbell Construction was very enriching. I was openly encouraged to take initiative and given ample opportunity to develop and strengthen my project management skills. At Campbell, I got to work alongside a group of highly talented individuals and leave my mark on some of Victoria's biggest construction projects."
- Brayden Hughes - "Campbell construction is a great place to work and learn with an awesome group of easy going yet efficient and extremely intelligent employees. I would encourage any co-op student to apply to Campbell Construction especially if they share an interest in commercial construction and enjoy learning new things everyday."
- Malcolm McEachern - "The team environment Campbell pursues is reminiscent of the small company aspect I grew up with living and working on Bowen Island, but with big ambitions. Having worked for large companies such as PCL and CNRL, the team morale does not compare to what Campbell has here, and I believe this shows in the quality of work being produced by the company and its employees."
