Careers & Jobs

Fort Hills is expected to be in operation for more than 50 years. That means a wide variety of career opportunities for people from construction through to full operations. Fort Hills is a joint venture between Suncor, Total and Teck Resources, and Suncor is the site operator. During construction of Fort Hills the majority of the employment opportunities will be with the contractors listed below. As the construction phase winds down and the operation phase begins in 2016/2017, Suncor will hire the bulk of the engineers, operations leaders, skilled trades and heavy equipment operators needed to operate the mine.
