Keeping the company moving: explore a supply chain management career at Imperial

Our business is complex. We have operations across Canada, some of which are running 24 hours a day. Key to our success is ensuring our employees and sites have the equipment, materials and staffing they need to keep our pump jacks pumping, our haul trucks hauling, our refineries processing and our pipelines flowing. That’s where our supply chain team comes in.

Our supply chain teams are recognized commercial experts. We use cutting-edge technologies and systems to make buying, managing materials and paying both easy and intuitive for internal clients.

We have a number of services lines within our supply chain team.
