Sought-after graduate skills were evolving as the business repositioned for the future. In order to capitalise on digital disruption in the industry, new opportunities in renewables and increased activity in infrastructure and defence, Aurecon recognised a need to recruit graduates from outside traditional engineering courses.
A highly creative graduate recruitment campaign was developed to attract graduates from engineering as well as those graduating with skills in commerce, economics, finance, planning and environment, as well as gaming design and development.
The effectiveness of the campaign resulted in significant increases in interest and applicants from a diverse range of disciplines, particularly from female graduates, in an extremely competitive graduate recruitment environment.
