Manufacturing Liaison Engineer

If you enjoy learning new technologies, traveling and have a passion for water, this is the opportunity you’ve been looking for!

 The Water Engineering Program is an exciting entry point for recent engineering graduates with interest in the Water business, and the rotational engineering stream allows engineers to be exposed to multiple roles within our North America Projects Business. This program develops technical problem-solving and leadership skills through project work through the bid, execution and start up phases.  Depending on previous experience, successful candidates will be part of a 2 to 3 year rotational program, where the rotation placements can be customized for the individual.  Rotation placements include:  Applications Engineering, Project Engineering, Process Engineering, Field Service, Process Start-up and Manufacturing.   It is designed to provide in-depth exposure to Veolia’s Water Technologies & Solutions (WTS) major product lines, integration with project execution teams, as well as integrated formal training. This role prepares new graduates for a wide variety of roles within the Veolia WTS business.


Duties & Responsibilities 

A WEP Rotational Engineer will build up the understanding of the key responsibilities of each discipline in the rotational program including, but not limited to: Applications Engineering, Project Engineering, Process Engineering, Field Service & Commissioning, Process Start-ups and potentially Electrical & Instrumentation Engineering and Automation.  Within these positions, the WEP Rotational Engineer will have the following responsibilities:  

  • The manufacturing Liaison is the primary contact between project and manufacturing teams and leads day-to-day interaction between the two for assembly and testing. 
  • Facilitates Pre-Production meetings and expedites issue resolution during the Production Phase of the projects by proactively engaging with the Production & Project teams. 
  • Develop project design documents, with engineering responsibility, depending on rotational position.  Documents such as P&IDs, PFDs, Mass and Energy Balances, General Arrangement Drawings, Electrical Single Line Diagrams, Electrical Schematics, Control Narratives.  
  • Perform overall system calculations that support the overall flowsheet development.  This includes process modeling, hydraulic profiles, detailed mechanical equipment sizing calculations, line sizing, power requirements etc.  Expectation is that in each rotational stop, the WEP rotational engineer will develop an understanding of these requirements to ensure design quality, the budget requirements, and customer expectations.  
  • Develop the abilities of the each function over the rotational period such that they are able to perform the engineering deliverables of the role, with limited supervision.  
  • Gain an understanding of our customer profiles and their needs and objectives.  This includes the strategic positioning of our solutions, an understanding of market pricing and VWTS’ ability to be profitable within that market.  
  • Understand and build the capability to cost overall project segments and be able to support bid teams to develop competitive proposals that differentiate VWTS in the market.  
  • Where required, support the manufacturing of skidded solutions and/or VWTS products
  • As part of a team provide technical expertise to customers through technical submissions, meetings (both virtually and in person), and in the field in start up and commissioning phases of a project.  
  • Actively participate in an assigned technical development cohort with peers new to VWTS for the development of knowledge of VWTS products and design practices.  
  • In-field rotations supporting the start-up and troubleshooting phases of a project.  
  • Be accountable for the delivery of assigned work, and communicative of the achievement of deadlines or if support is needed.  
  • Be active in establishing individual development plans and work towards achieving milestones surrounding that development.  

Knowledge, Skills & Abilities

  • Understanding of multi-step processes, and their interdependences
  • Ability to read P&IDs and PFDs (including material balances), and where required electrical drawings.
  • Ability to communicate effectively and contribute to team and department projects.
  • Comfortable with a fast-paced work environment.
  • Good technical writing and oral communication skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to establish and maintain relationships with co-workers. 

Education & Experience


  • Bachelor of Engineering or Science degree
  • To be considered for a 2-year program duration, successful completion of a minimum 12 month internship with Veolia Water Technologies & Solutions 


  • Previous experience (prior to graduation) in the water/wastewater industry and or waste management 

Working Conditions

  • Most rotational stops will be in VWTS office locations.  It is expected that travel will be between 10-15% of work time.  
  • Site visits will be required, and hence there is interaction with water, wastewater and waste, depending on the project. 
  • For WEP Rotational Engineers who choose to do Field Service rotations, travel during those rotations is 70-80%
  • The Manufacturing Liaison will spend 1 year in this rotation before a new rotation is assigned.
