About Us



Beca is one of Asia Pacific's largest independent advisory, design and engineering consultancies with more than 3300 amazing people. Our purpose is to make everyday better for our communities. We combine our skills and insights with those of our clients, to think, design and develop creative and sustainable solutions together.
Our experience has been more than a century in the making, but it’s the fresh talent we’re nurturing, the innovative thinking we’re developing and the connections that we’re forging that gets us most excited for the future. 
Which is why each year we employ up to 150 graduates and 70 summer interns across Australia and New Zealand. We have a huge range of graduates joining us from science, engineering, planning, arts and IT backgrounds, just to name a few!
In GradNewZealand’s 2021 Top100, Beca was voted the No.1 engineering consulting graduate employer and No.3 graduate employer overall in New Zealand.


Our vision, purpose, and values 
Our vision: “creative people together transforming our world”, reflects our culture and our aspirations, and has been powering what we do for more than 100 years. Together with our clients we are transforming communities and changing lives.
Our purpose, make everyday better, translates our vision into an authentic, actionable and daily ‘why’ for our business and for ourselves: We all go to work to make the everyday, and every day, better in some way – for our clients, our communities and our colleagues.
Our work impacts everyday lives in our communities, whether a dry home, hot coffee, traffic jam free commute, effective public transport, smart work spaces or a cold beer at the end of the day – we make the everyday better.
We have four key values supporting our purpose – partnership, tenacity, enjoyment and care – and these sit at the heart of everything we do. They are reflected in the way we work every day and in our approach to partnering with our clients.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Beca, our creative people are our greatest asset - together we are transforming our world. The more diverse we are, the better our ideas, strategies and client solutions will be and the more we will represent our world. We recognize that being inclusive of everyone, regardless of differences, is essential to maximizing creativity.
 
We know that we are stronger when people from different backgrounds and perspectives work together. We are committed to growing an environment where our people have equal opportunities to build a career that reflects their ability and passions and can believe in their potential, feel they belong and be their best selves. We support our people to work flexibly to find balance in our busy lives.
 
In Australia in 2019 we launched our first Reconciliation Action Plan, the first step of our journey to bridge the gap with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples at work and in society. And in New Zealand, we support South Pacific Indigenous Engineering Students (SPIES), offer a number of scholarships to support future talent, and have partnered with the Diversity Agenda to get more women into engineering and architecture.

How To Apply

Apply online
The first time you apply, you’ll need to create a username and password on our application tracking system. You'll need to upload a cover letter, your CV and academic transcript (we know this won't be your official one, so just send us where you are at so far). Please make sure you answer all the questions to the best of your ability!

Applicant screening begins
Once applications are closed, ALL of them will be reviewed by one of our recruitment team. If we longlist your application, we will share it with our discipline leads and if they think you could be a good fit, one of our team will get in touch with you to arrange a video question to be sent.  If you aren't selected, we will let you know via email. If you choose to opt-in for job alerts you can see when new roles are advertised – who knows, you might be the perfect canddate for a different role!

Videos commence
To find out if you'll be a good cultural fit at Beca, we’ll ask you to answer a simple question about yourself using an online video tool. Don't worry, you'll get the opportunity to practice beforehand!

Interviews
Once videos are complete, our discipline leads will review them and if you are shortlisted we will give you a call to arrange an interview. This is where it gets exciting, we want to know more about you, what you like to do outside of university and why you want to join Beca! Dependent on Covid levels, interviews will run either in one of our Beca offices or via Microsoft Teams. If you aren’t progressed to interview after the video stage, we will let you know via email.
 
Employment offers 
We'll contact you as soon as a decision has been made to let you know our decision. If you're offered a job, we will complete a reference check and will then send your formal offer online through your candidate profile. Once accepted, a background check will be completed prior to you starting with us, and an education check will be completed at the beginning of 2022 to confirm your qualification/s.
 
Onboarding
We're looking forward to welcoming you to Beca! Most of our graduates commence in late January where you will be welcomed into our Graduate Development Programme and will get a support person (buddy) from within the team to assist you and gain a better understanding of Beca.
