They’ve reimagined their graduate programme. They’ve said goodbye to rigid schedules and hello to a collaborative environment where graduates have the flexibility to pursue their passions, design, and fast track their career.
As part of a diverse team, graduates will collaborate with others across geographies and markets, applying their skills to re-imagine engineering and design a better future.
They will also work alongside industry-leading professionals, mentors and peers. If they would like to experience numerous areas of Aurecon’s business, they can facilitate that too.
Choosing a career path as an undergraduate can be challenging. While interns may have an interest in a particular area, they sometimes don’t know which path to follow until they’ve had some practical work experience. In this internship programme, they will be placed in a technical field of their choice (where possible) for approximately three months to gain experience in that field and help them decide if it is right for them.
Aurecon’s internship programme coincides with the 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, they give their 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.
Due to the wide breadth of services that Aurecon offers, they organise their work and people across several multidisciplinary and diverse teams.
Each of their teams provides exciting career possibilities and the opportunity to work with internationally recognised experts — meaning they 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.
