Who are we?

Aurecon is more than an engineering, design and advisory company. 

The Australian Financial Review (AFR) named us Australasia’s Most Innovative Company and Most Innovative Professional Services Company for 2020. In 2019, we were the first New Zealand engineering company to achieve The Rainbow Tick certification for diversity and inclusion. We maintained our accreditation in 2020.

Hardwired in our DNA are engineering, design and the deep need to leave a legacy. We believe humanity depends on engineering; and we recognise we have a broader stewardship role to play. A deep responsibility to hold. As we continually strive for a life in balance, Aurecon clients will be ready for the future and engineered for life.

What makes us unconventional?

The people who design a better future for humanity are the brave new thinkers like you.

We need you to draw upon unconventional ideas and piece together solutions to complex challenges.

From using digital technology to plan and restore safe transport access from Manawatū to Hawkes Bay after major landslips, to advising on innovative infrastructure solutions to support the growth and regeneration of Eastern Porirua. To designing a breakthrough solar-powered water treatment plant that provides drinking water to Indigenous and remote communities across Australia.

Join us and together we’ll make an impact that shifts the world. 

Apply for a role and start exploring your future with us today.

Our programmes

Graduate Programme

We’ve reimagined our graduate programme. We’ve said goodbye to rigid schedules and hello to a collaborative environment where you have the flexibility to pursue your passions, design, and fast track your career.

As part of a diverse team, you’ll collaborate with others across geographies and markets, applying your skills to re-imagine engineering and design a better future.

You will also work alongside industry leading professionals, mentors and peers. If you would like to experience numerous areas of Aurecon’s business, we can facilitate that too.

Internship Programme

Choosing a career path as an undergraduate can be challenging. While you may have an interest in a particular area, you sometimes don’t know which path to follow until you’ve had some practical work experience. In our internship programme, you will be placed in a technical field of your choice (where possible) for approximately three months to gain experience in that field and help you decide if it is right for you.

In our internship programme you can:

  • Get a real taste of what it’s like to work at Aurecon and in your chosen field of study
  • Earn some money during your holidays
  • Work on real projects in a supportive environment
  • Learn from and partner with experienced professionals and current graduates
  • Start building your professional network
  • Get a feel for whether a graduate position at Aurecon is right for you

Aurecon’s internship programme coincides with the university summer break, so students typically start after their exam period in November/December and work through until university resumes in February/March. At the end of the experience, we give our internship students structured feedback on their performance to assist in their professional development.

While open to all students, the programme has been designed for undergraduates ideally in their penultimate year of study.

Our teams

Due to the wide breadth of services that Aurecon offers, we organise our work and our people across several multidisciplinary and diverse teams. 

Each of our teams provide exciting career possibilities and the opportunity to work with internationally recognised experts — meaning you get to work with and learn from the best in the business whilst delivering complex and innovative projects in a collaborative peer group spread across the world.

The below table indicates how your degree is best matched for work in specific teams.
