WSP is moving to a new global Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system based on Oracle Fusion. In order to do this effectively, collaboratively, and efficiently, the Horizon Program has been established with members from across the globe to unify best practices across our people & culture, sales, projects, procurement and finance processes. The primary objective of the program is to deploy new global WSP processes and benefit from a Single Source of Truth that is Future Ready.

The ERP project will create modern and integrated systems and an environment to support our People, Financial, and Client management programs. This will drive improved insights, a better employee experience, improved transparency, and real-time data and analytics.

The success of this program will require input and leadership from WSP colleagues who understand our industry, our clients, our people and our core businesses. Open positions require people of a variety of skillsets who wish to influence the direction of the ERP as it develops and create the foundation for an overall business transformation.

Employees can grow their careers and gain an invaluable understanding of the business while staying in the same location. They will have the opportunity to work with colleagues from across the globe, building personal networks while growing their own professional experience.
