Early Careers at Aurecon

If you want your career to be an amazing adventure – one which sees you working alongside other brilliant people on projects that create a better future for humanity and the planet – you’re in the right place!

You probably found us by searching jobs for engineers or designers or advisors – something like that. But while those terms are technically correct, they don’t do justice to who we are. Not really.

At our core, we’re explorers, innovators, and collaborators. Every day, we work on world-class projects, co-creating with our clients solutions to solve some of the world’s most complex challenges, including climate change and transitioning to a more sustainable and liveable world.

We know how important it is to choose a company whose purpose and principles align with your own. If you’re like us, you’ll also want to join a company where you can hone your skills – and develop new ones.

Where you can explore the career pathways that have already piqued your interest and discover others you didn’t even realise were a thing. Where you can work alongside industry leaders on world class projects. Where you can bring your best self to work every day and be confident your voice will be heard. Are you with us?
