About Beca

If you are looking to kick-start your career with a company that gives you options throughout your career, Beca could be it.

We are an innovative and diverse professional services consultancy, with inspiring high profile clients that value our ongoing pursuit of technical excellence.

We’ve been in business for over 90 years, and now have over 2400 people based in 18 offices around the world. So we’re big enough to secure major projects allowing you access to leading edge skills and international opportunities, yet small enough for you to make a difference.


Our Graduate Programme

Our team of engineers, planners, project managers, architects, quantity surveyors and valuers practise in a wide range of disciplines, so Beca can offer graduates opportunities to be involved in a huge variety of work, in diverse locations around the globe.

Most Beca graduates will start off working in a particular area, but as opportunities and new projects arise, many have the opportunity to move to other sites, offices, sections, and even countries! Either way, as a large multidisciplinary consultancy, we can offer you invaluable site experience and office-based design experience, not only within your area, but from a variety of different areas, including:

Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical/Process, Environmental, Engineering Science, Information Technology, Planning, Property and Valuations, Land Surveying, GIS and Geospatial, Quantity Surveying and Cost Management, Fire Engineering, and Project Management.


Personal development

During your first few years at Beca, you’ll have access to a number of formal and informal initiatives designed to assist with your development as a professional within the consulting environment. The aim of these initiatives is to support you in developing the broad range of skills and experience necessary to become a successful consultant in your technical field – skills that you’ll be able to apply throughout your career.

Beca’s career development philosophy is built on one simple principle - at Beca YOU own your career. We have everything set up so that you can drive your own success within a positive and supportive environment. Graduate development at Beca includes:

Six Monthly Performance Development Discussions, On-the-Job Learning, Graduate Development Conference - Year 1 and Year 2, General Development and Training, Mentoring, Site Visits and Graduate Group Monthly Sessions with Guest Speakers


Social Scene

Beca has an active and varied social scene, and most offices have a social club that organises a range of activities.

Not only do these events make a change from work – they are a great way to get to know your colleagues better and meet people in other parts of the business. Be as active and involved as you want to be with plenty of social and sporting events to choose from. In New Zealand, annual events include:

  • Taupo Round the lake relay
  • Trivial pursuit
  • Indoor cricket
  • Beer festival
  • Summer outdoor touch rugby
  • Wine tasting
  • Golf day
  • Summer bash
  • Various inter- and intra-company sports
