We know how important it is to choose a company whose purpose aligns with your own. Somewhere you can build your skills. Where you can collaborate with leaders and industry experts. Get the opportunity to explore different career pathways and deliver on real projects. Aurecon’s highly awarded graduate and internship programmes have all that covered and more.

When you join us, you’ll not only be joining an international design, engineering, and advisory company but also a community working together to tackle some of the world’s most complex challenges.

Aurecon’s strength has always been our people. It’s our people who build our shared purpose and bring ideas to life. It’s our people who imagine and co-create with our clients to ensure a better future for people and the planet. You really can bring your whole self to work and be confident your voice will be heard.

We often talk about how important imagination is to our work and how to tap into the childlike wonder where everything is possible. Our Aurecon purpose is ‘bringing ideas to life’; our film looks at the world through youthful eyes. It captures why so many of us do what we do to make the world a better place. Watch our film below.
