Who are we?
Aurecon is a global engineering and infrastructure 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 2018, we were listed in LinkedIn’s Top Companies 2018, the only engineering consulting firm in Australia to make the list. In 2017, we were also honoured to be named ‘Large Firm of the Year’ by Consult Australia, and we were ranked #5 in the Australian Financial Review’s Most Innovative Companies list.
Innovation, eminence and digital are at the heart of everything we do. We challenge the status-quo and we want to work with people who, like us, are passionate about re-imagining engineering and leaving a legacy for humanity in the 26 countries we operate.
Apply for a role with us and come on a journey to start seeing the world differently, today.
What makes us unconventional?
We explore new frontiers to step from the impossible into the possible.
Flexibility. Choice. Freedom to be you. Make an impact. Design a better future. It’s all possible.
If you choose to work with us, we’ll want you to embrace your uniqueness to re-imagine engineering by asking ‘What if?’, ‘What’s next?’ and ‘Why not?’
From advising on the world's largest lithium-ion battery to store renewable energy. To using digital technology to plan and restore transport access to communities after major earthquakes. To designing Australia's tallest engineered timber office building.
We believe the answers to the world's most complex challenges are out there. All that’s needed is to start exploring new frontiers today.

We know all companies say culture is important but, ask anyone at Aurecon and they’ll tell you how our culture permeates through everything we do.
All the strands of what we do, think and feel tie together to make us who we are. Our Aurecon Attributes are our way of being. Our Principles our way of working. And the Methodology is our way of doing. We then weave it all together with our custom blend of employee and client experience. This is what fuels creativity and delivers innovative solutions.
This is how we bring ideas to life.

An inclusive, flexible workplace
Aurecon has staff from 32 different language backgrounds. In Australia, we aim to be an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality. We have partnered with the Not-For-Profit Pride in Diversity to offer a support program for LGBTI workplace inclusion. Our Reconciliation Action Plan is centred around a commitment to creating sustainable and meaningful relationships with Indigenous individuals and communities. Our ‘Yes Flex’ program provides family-friendly flexible starting and finishing times, and our award-winning ‘Mind Matters’ program raises awareness about and seeks to reduce the stigma around workplace mental health issues.
Our social contribution
In the work we do, we have the real potential to make an impact on society. We can bring ideas to life – turn ideas into something real – something beneficial for everyone. We aspire to help deliver projects that enhance our environment, build stronger communities, raise living standards and create vibrant and sustainable economies. We also allocate resources to aid development and improve quality of life in the communities in which we live. Some of the ways in which we build stronger communities include: supporting maths and science development, partnering with Engineers without Borders, providing employment opportunities to young Maoris in New Zealand, and partnering with Engineering Aid Australia to run Indigenous Engineering Summer Schools. We also bring engineering to schools through our award-winning Aurecon Bridge Building Competition involving year 8 and 9 students in Australia and year 9 and 10 students in New Zealand, aimed at raising awareness of the engineering profession among students.
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.
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 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.
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 positions you for work in specific teams.
At Aurecon, we make the recruitment process as straight forward as possible. We keep in touch with all applicants at each stage of the process, so you will be up to date on your application’s progress and know if there are any delays to the recruitment process.
