Who are we?

Aurecon is an engineering, design and advisory company, but not as you know it. We’ve re-imagined engineering.

Our clients’ ideas and aspirations drive all that we do. We work alongside them like no other firm to co-create clever, innovative solutions to some of the world’s most complex challenges. 

In 2019, we were the first New Zealand engineering company to achieve The Rainbow Tick certification for diversity and inclusion. In 2018, the Aurecon led North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery (NCTIR) Alliance project Moving Mountains to Reconnect Communities was announced as the winner of the 2018 Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) People’s Choice Award. We were also listed in LinkedIn’s Top Companies for the second year in a row, the only engineering consulting firm to make the list.

Hardwired in our DNA are engineering, design and the deep need to leave a legacy. We are as diverse as we are dynamic. As curious as we are clever.

What makes us unconventional?

A better future belongs to the bold who step forward.

The dreamers, the believers, the curious, the resourceful, the unconventional thinkers.

Join us, and we’ll give you flexibility, choice, and the freedom to be you to make an impact.

From using digital technology to plan and restore transport access to Kaikoura’s communities after major earthquakes. To designing the future of Auckland’s transport with the Auckland City Rail Link to reduce crippling congestion. To advise on the world's largest lithium-ion battery to store renewable energy.

Together, we can reimagine engineering and design a better future for humanity. So, step up, step out and start exploring your future with us today.

Our programmes

Graduate Programme

As a graduate, you will learn from future-ready leaders and take advantage of our flexible graduate programme. We’ve said goodbye to rigid schedules and hello to a collaborative environment where you can 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 make the world a better place.

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.

Bringing ideas to life at Aurecon is about being creative, grabbing onto new opportunities and getting the support you need to find your niche.

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 provides 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 positions you for work in specific teams.
