Generous paid time off and flexible work

We encourage top performance over working longer hours. Vacations are meant to be taken—and enjoyed! We recognize you have a life outside of work and ensure personal days off are available for you to take care of you and your family. We also know that flexibility matters – not just when it comes to personal days, but in the everyday rhythms of life and work. That’s why we offer flexible, hybrid work options for certain non-operational roles – offering a mixture of time spent working from home to tackle individual tasks and time spent in the office connecting with others.

Inclusive environment

We value diversity among people in thinking style, attitudes, perceptions, behaviour, background and all other attributes that make each person unique. We believe that inclusiveness means a workplace in which differences between people and perspectives are valued and leveraged, and we want everyone to feel supported, comfortable and completely part of the team. You get to be your authentic self with us, and a part of a team that respects and values you. We ask the very same of you. With respect as table stakes, you have an important role to play in fostering our inclusive work environment by valuing your colleagues and treating everyone with openness and respect.

Join Our Team

Capital Power encourages every corporate employee to be active community members, enjoying the opportunities and benefits of a career in some of North America’s most vibrant cities. While each corporate office at Capital Power has its own focus, they all share a mandate of powering change by changing power.

Edmonton

Capital Power’s head office is in downtown Edmonton on floors 9-12 of EPCOR Tower and includes our Executive, HR, Finance, Tax & Treasury, Market Assessment & Forecasting, Energy Management Operations Centre, Commercial Management, Regulatory, Ethics & Compliance, External Relations, Engineering, Operations & Construction, Health, Safety & Environment and Supply Chain. This building offers multiple amenities such as a daycare, fitness facility, bicycle parkade and underground parking. As well, should you get hungry, there is a convenience store, bakery and pizzeria.

Our head office is located minutes away from excellent restaurants, the Art Gallery of Alberta as well as Rogers Place, home of the Edmonton Oilers. The building is easily accessible from public transit (LRT), bus stops and there are multiple parking lots in the area.

Calgary

Capital Power’s Calgary office has been in the heart of downtown Calgary in Gulf Canada Square since 2011. The main functions of the Calgary office are Trading, Business Development/Commercial Management, Corporate Finance, and Energy Trade and Risk Management.

The building offers great views of both downtown and the mountains. The office is close to shopping centers, fitness facilities, food venues, child care services, and the +15 walkway system. Located on 9th avenue, the building has immediate access to bus stops and is only two blocks away from the light rail transit (LRT) station.

Boston

The Boston office is in downtown Boston on Federal Street, formerly known as Long Lane, which has a rich history. Capital Power has been at this location since 2011, with its main functions consisting of business development, legal, regulatory, and environmental trading out of this office.

The location is only minutes from fresh seafood restaurants, trendy cafes and the New England Aquarium. The office is also located within walking distance of the famous Orpheum Theatre. The theatre was built in 1852 making it one of the oldest theatres in the United States. It is the perfect place to catch a stand-up comedy or musical act after work.

“Risk & Reward” - These two words encapsulate 10 years at Capital Power, both broadly speaking as well personally. As a business, we have taken calculated and well-managed risks, opening the door for growth and shareholder value. At the individual level these words ring true as well; my career path has included both sides of the same coin, having been a part of Credit & Commodity Risk and Valuation Services.

"Opportunities" - I chose this as there are so many opportunities this company offers that it’s almost overwhelming (in a good way). Volunteering, the after hours program, events where they bring in different speakers (PD Days), job growth, hosting tours of different sites/facilities, team building events, SWEP students, and the list goes on. Capital Power really is full of amazing opportunities for everyone who is apart of it and I cannot wait to see what the next 10 years bring.

"Growth" - Over the past decade, I have seen and continue to see how Capital Power GROWS its business and people. It’s not just about making the MWH. It’s also about making it a safe work environment where people can develop professionally, excel, and have fun along the way.
