Graduate Stories

Aurecon


Lauren Thompson

Lauren Thompson

Systems Engineer

Location: Melbourne, Australia

Time at Aurecon: 2 years

Degree completed: Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) (Chemical and Pharmaceutical) at the University of Adelaide.

Strongest Aurecon Attribute: Resourceful

I moved to Melbourne when I secured my first job as a Risk Engineer in the oil and gas industry. I had my eye on Aurecon for a while and was eager to find an appropriate role for myself in the company. After working at my first job for nearly two years, I was lucky enough to make some good industry connections and after some discussions, found myself being offered the role of Systems Engineer in a completely new sector – rail!

My experience with Aurecon

I like to call what I do ‘technical project management’– ultimately making sure that the components of a design work together at project completion! This involves ensuring that the client needs are understood, that interfaces and hazards are managed, and that the design meets standards and requirements. It’s a great multidisciplinary role that involves technical skills, but also strong coordination and management skills.

The latest project I worked on was Inland Rail – a once-in-a-generation project connecting regional Australia to domestic and international markets. It completes the ‘spine’ of the national freight network between Melbourne and Brisbane. It is a great team to work with, and an exciting, monumental project which will significantly impact Australia’s future and freight network.

A typical work day for me would include designing projects, writing project reports or managing data using various digital tools. This is complemented by meetings with clients and collaborating with project design teams through using our in-house ‘design-to-innovate’ tools. In a nutshell, the tools use design thinking principles and diverse thinking to enable us to develop unconventional solutions for our clients.

Aurecon has a great global support network of emerging professionals called ‘Limelight’, which really helps develop my personal and professional skills while also giving me the opportunity to meet other emerging professionals and senior leaders. We also have a great culture of diversity and inclusion where everyone is encouraged to bring their authentic self to work. These things coupled with excellent policies such as flexible working allows everyone to feel supported.

As my career progresses, I am entrusted with higher levels of responsibility – and I am really enjoying the challenges and new skills that I am gaining from these experiences. This can sometimes be stressful, but I wouldn’t ask for it to be any other way.

My best advice to graduates

  1. Join a volunteering committee: This will provide you great opportunities and networks to learn about your industry or could help you land a job and give you great experience to speak about in your interviews.
  2. At work, make time to get involved in work outside of your project work: Get to know others in your company, join a committee, do some volunteering.  These will allow you to build networks and grow skills outside of your role skillset and this may benefit your role or may create an opportunity in the future.
  3. Get some professional engineering experience while at university: This is great for technical knowledge but experiencing an operations or consulting company will help you to understand the application of this theory significantly.

Yifan Qin

Yifan Qin

Civil Engineer

Location: Melbourne

Time at Aurecon: 3 years

Degree completed: Master of Engineering (Civil) at the University of Melbourne

Strongest Aurecon Attribute: Inquisitive

Over a five-year journey, I obtained a Diploma of Music degree with a Bachelor of Science degree. I combined my love for the arts and science into a more tangible career by then going on to study a Master of Engineering degree. After university, I was fortunate enough to receive an offer from Aurecon – and so my career as a civil engineer officially began.

My experience with Aurecon

My specific civil design experiences at Aurecon are mainly in the fields of drainage design, road geometric design and earthwork design for large-scale industrial subdivision projects, major infrastructure projects and building development projects.

Drainage design ensures runoff from rainfall is safely conveyed to the desired discharge locations. Road geometric design positions the physical elements of the roadway to optimise efficiency and safety while reducing cost and impacts to the environment. Earthwork design determines how the existing earth surface should be processed and constructed to cater for various engineering projects.

So far, I have been fortunate to work on the Melbourne Airport road design and various Melbourne Water civil assets. These projects will contribute to the city’s liveability now and into the future. It’s really cool to think that my drawing and plans become tangible structures in real life. This excites and motivates me to design innovative solutions which make the world a better place.

A day at Aurecon can involve attending design meetings to collaborate with the architect and the project owner to improve design solutions. On other days, I go onsite to inspect project construction and answer the builders’ queries. By interacting with different stakeholders on a regular basis, I’ve learnt how to effectively present, communicate, and explain complicated technical jargon to teams and clients. My diverse responsibilities are rewarding because it helps build my technical and commercial skills while allowing me to find balance between working independently and as part of a team.

My development doesn’t stop at project work. As a part of Aurecon’s graduate programme, there are no rigid schedules. There’s flexibility and options to pursue your passions and plan your career to achieve your goals. If you want to focus on the technical side of engineering, you could become a technical director and ‘deep dive’ into a specialised field. Alternatively, you could consider a design manager role where you’d manage a large design package for prominent projects. You could also join the contractor side to learn more about the construction of projects, or morph into an advisory role and project management.

The opportunities provided don’t stop at work – they extend to your interests outside of work too. Aurecon’s networks and ‘Yes Flex’ flexible working policy has allowed me to mentor two university students as part of Melbourne University’s ‘Access Mentorship’ programme. The programme is designed to connect undergraduate students from underrepresented backgrounds with working professionals. I love being able to help others through this initiative, and to see them grow.

My best advice to graduates:

  1. Spend more time pursuing your genuine interests – once you start working full-time, your passions will show, and you’ll be recognised for it sooner.
  2. It’s okay to slow down a little and to purposefully craft your life and career. Remember, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”.
  3. Get to know people within the industry and attend more events. It will help you in the long run. Don’t be shy! Connect with and message on LinkedIn. The world is willing to help you grow more than you imagine.

Internship Programme

Aurecon


Our programme

Choosing a career path as an undergraduate can be challenging. While you may have an interest in a particular area, you sometimes don’t know which path to follow until you’ve had some practical work experience.

In our internship programme, you will be placed in a technical field of your choice (where possible) for approximately three months to gain experience in that field and help you decide if it is right for you.

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, we give our 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.

Our teams

Due to the wide breadth of services that Aurecon offers, we organise our work and our people across several multidisciplinary and diverse teams.

Each of our teams provide exciting career possibilities and the opportunity to work with internationally recognised experts — meaning you 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.

The below table indicates how your degree is best matched for work in specific teams.

FAQs

So, I’ve submitted my application – what now?

Applications are continually monitored by Aurecon’s recruitment team throughout the process. So even if you’ve applied early, rest assured that your application will still be reviewed and, if successful, included in our interview process.

For graduate positions, applications close in April, with a view to having all of our positions filled within five months.

I have applied with Aurecon before. Can I re-apply?

Yes, if you have unsuccessfully applied for a position previously, we strongly encourage you to re-apply the following year – as long as your graduation has been within two years of the date of your application.

What disciplines will you be looking to recruit?

  • Engineering - Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Environment & Water, Geomatics/Geotechnical, Mechanical, Structural
  • Project Management
  • Surveying Urban/Town Planning
  • Commerce*
  • Science*
  • Finance*
  • Arts*

  • IT and related*
  • Law*

*Double degrees from these disciplines is preferred.
**Graduates seeking to work in Advisory can be a part of our teams in: Communication and Stakeholder Engagement, Infrastructure Advisory, Environment and Planning, Programme Advisory, Asset Management and Digital Advisory

Can I apply for more than one sector or business unit?

While you will only need to submit one application, our process will allow you to nominate a first and second preference for the team you would like to work with i.e. Built Environment, Advisory, Energy & Resources and Infrastructure. We will always attempt to place you in your first preference but, nominating a second team will allow us greater flexibility matching you with a suitable graduate position.

I am an international student. Am I still eligible to apply?

Yes, you are welcome to apply for a graduate position. But it is important for you to know that Aurecon does not sponsor international students for relevant visas, so you will need to make sure you have a visa that permits you to work in Australia (or elsewhere) before the start dates of our graduate intake, which are between February and March each year.

Can I still apply if I have already graduated?

Yes, at Aurecon we accept applications from students, with or without relevant work experience, up to two years after graduating from university with a Bachelor or Master’s degree. If you do have more than two years of experience, we’d recommend you apply for a relevant position on the Aurecon careers website or reach out to the recruitment team either via Facebook or LinkedIn.

What is Aurecon’s Emerging Professionals Programme (EPP)?

The EPP is Aurecon’s global graduate development framework designed to develop our EPs to grow into specialist consultants that are not only problem solvers, but problem finders. We achieve this by offering a comprehensive mix of technical and non-technical personal development programmes.

The modules are designed along three themes covering:
Work Ready: time management, problem solving
Collaboration: communication, design thinking
Future Ready: embracing change, being a mentor

These workshops and curated online learning are timed to be delivered at the relevant stage of the EP’s career.

Do you provide training and opportunities for professional development?

We certainly do. Not only do we provide formal, internal training ranging in focus from technical to business skills, we also hold lunchtime presentations covering a variety of topics from current projects to industry trends. We encourage our people to pursue their passions, so they are encouraged to explore opportunities and discuss it with their line manager. We know a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution doesn’t always work.

In addition, Aurecon’s Education Assistance Scheme provides employees with financial and study leave support to undertake further study in recognised qualifications. For more information visit our development page.

What about professional accreditation?

We strongly support and promote our emerging professionals to work towards gaining professional accreditation with a relevant industry body. Gaining accreditation means you will be at the industry best practice level, which reflects the highest standard of professionalism.

The direct costs associated with applying for and maintaining one professional registration will be covered by Aurecon. In addition, one professional membership will be funded by Aurecon for all technical and professional staff.

When would a graduate expect to commence employment if they were offered a position?

If offered a role with Aurecon, graduates can expect to start work between January and February the following year, depending on personal circumstances and that of the team they will be joining. Some states do offer a limited number of mid-year intake positions, but it is best to confirm this with an Aurecon representative.

Please note that mid-year graduates who join the company in the second half of the calendar year are classified as graduates of the following year. So, if you start in August 2020, you would be considered a 2021 graduate. This is to ensure you still gain access to the same, complete suite of training during your graduate programme as your graduate colleagues.

Will I get rotated through different teams on the graduate programme?

Our graduate programme is a little different to most. We offer graduates the opportunity to play to their strengths and fast-track their career by offering specialised work at the outset in the Built Environment, Advisory, Energy & Resources and Infrastructure teams. This way, young professionals can get ‘on the job’ experience as early as possible in their career.

However, if you would like to experience numerous areas of Aurecon’s business, we can facilitate that too. Quite often our graduates are afforded the opportunity to work on projects outside their team whilst still maintaining their management and mentoring relationships in their ‘home’ team.

Who can I speak with if I have any other questions?

If you have any questions not answered by these FAQs, follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram. You can send us a message via Facebook Messenger and one of our recruitment team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Aurecon proudly supports Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people in the workplace. We promote active inclusion of LGBTI members of the community in an environment that enables diverse LGBTI and non-LGBTI people to interact comfortably and authentically, supported by Aurecon to develop to their full professional potential.

In January 2019, Aurecon became the first consulting engineer in New Zealand to be Rainbow Tick certified. The Rainbow Tick is a quality improvement cycle designed to make an organisation a safe, welcoming and inclusive place for people of diverse gender identity and sexual orientation.

Our LGBTI inclusion action plan aims to provide a genuine duty of care to our people and allow our employees to be authentic and ensure that Aurecon’s values are lived by creating a safe, respectful and inclusive environment for all.

We strive to address the significant underrepresentation of LGBTI members in STEM through championing a ‘LGBT+ in STEM’ professional networking group in New Zealand.

Indigenous Programmes

Indigenous programs diversity icon

Aurecon


Creating sustainable and meaningful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia is very important at Aurecon. Each year, Aurecon celebrates National Reconciliation Week, as part of our Reconciliation Action Plan commitment.

Aurecon's Reconciliation Action Plan informs our clients, partners and people of how we are raising awareness and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, providing meaningful contribution to communities, and supporting employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Aurecon’s commitment to Aboriginal suppliers was demonstrated in 2015 through the Wickham project in partnership with Rio Tinto Iron Ore. The project achieved a stretch target of 25% of financial commitments being contributed to Aboriginal businesses local to the Pilbara.

Reconciliation is a key component of Aurecon's diversity and social responsibility programmes. We envisage an Australia that embraces unity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians, a national identity that accepts and understands our shared history, and an Australia free from negative race relations.

 
 

Disability Inclusion

Disability programs diversity icon

Aurecon


Aurecon actively seeks candidates with a disability/ies and offers adjustments as required to fully participate in the recruitment process and to perform their role once offered a position. As people with a disability/ies are underrepresented in employment, Aurecon would like to play its part to challenge and change this statistic. Aurecon will ensure that candidates with a disability/ies have equal access to opportunities and encourage students to be comfortable to list any adjustments they may need in their application. Aurecon focuses on strengths, skills and potential, regardless of disability or any other form of diversity or difference.
