Employee Profiles

Aurecon


Ahmad Fahim Hakimi, Geotechnical Engineer

University: The University of Adelaide

Degree qualification: Bachelor of Engineering Civil & Structural (Honours)

Year of graduation: 2022

Contact email (if more information is required): [email protected] or [email protected]

What's your background?

I am a refugee born in Afghanistan. Because my older brother worked with American troops and coalition forces in Afghanistan, my family and I had to leave our country. And since I was not safe, my family decided to send me to Australia, where I came by boat as an unaccompanied minor. I was in Christmas Island and Darwin detention centres for around two years. My family were separated all around the world and I have not seen them in ten years.

I completed my high school in Queensland and obtained a full scholarship from The University of Adelaide to study a Bachelor of Engineering Civil & Structural (Honours). During my time at university, I had the opportunity to work at the university union and student care breakfast club on campus.

What's your job about?

I am currently working on the North-South Corridor ground investigation project. I am responsible for supervising the delivery of core tray soil samples, capturing laboratory soil results on the logs, and updating lab results on Excel spreadsheets. My focus is on taking high-quality photos of a soil sample to make it easy to identify visually what is on the ground. In addition, I also support the team at drilling sites and borehole inspections. 

Could someone with a different background do your job?

I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the Aurecon Geotechnical team. I think someone with a different background could do my job. What is important, however, is to have interest in soil and to develop good geotechnical knowledge at university and have keen attention to details.

What's the coolest thing about your job?

The coolest thing about my job is working in an inclusive and collaborative environment. Everyone shares the same vision and there is always professional growth. 

3 pieces of advice for yourself when you were a student...

The advice I would give to myself when I was at university would be: To live in the moment. Always take the time to appreciate what you have now instead of what happened in the past and what will happen in the future.


No’am Geffen, Engineer, Integrated Transport & Mobility

University Attended: Monash University

Degree qualification: Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Commerce

Year of graduation: 2019

What's your background?

I was born in Israel, where I lived until I was seven, when my family moved to Auckland, New Zealand. I then moved to Melbourne, Australia when I was 13 and have been living here ever since. When I was in school, I always loved maths and science, particularly the problem-solving aspects. This is what drew me to study engineering. 

I applied for an internship at Aurecon in my penultimate year at the university and did that over the summer of 2018/2019 in the rail team. I was then offered a graduate role for the following year and continued working part time during my final year at university. In 2020, I started as a graduate in the rail team and then transitioned over to the Integrated Transport & Mobility (ITM) team, which I am currently a part of. 

What's your job about?

The ITM team aims at providing safer, smarter, and more connected transportation systems. 

There are many different roles within the team, however I focus on transport planning and traffic engineering. This involves looking at the best way to move people and goods and what corresponding infrastructure is required. No day is the same for me which I love! This is because, in my role, we provide many different types of services and often work across multiple projects.

Could someone with a different background do your job?

Yes, definitely! Our team is made up of people with lots of different educational backgrounds, such as mathematics, urban planning, data science and more. A lot of the skills are taught on the job, so I think it is more about having a passion and interest in the work we do that is important. Being a good communicator with strong analytical and problem-solving skills is hugely beneficial. 

What's the coolest thing about your job?

I love that while my job is often about improving or designing transportation infrastructure, it is all about society and what/how people will use and interact with this infrastructure. It has a human-centred element to it that really appeals to me. 

I have also been lucky enough to work on some big projects that have shaped the transportation network of Melbourne. It is really amazing to think that in 50 years’ time, I can look back and know I played a part in that.

What are the limitations of your job?

There’s often not a straight answer or one you get from a calculation. As an engineering student, I like having a clear solution that is based on calculations or standard practices. In transport, planning things are often assessed qualitatively and quantitatively, so the answer is often not as obvious. The good thing is, it gets easier with experience and I can already see how the work I have done on previous projects is helping me with my current projects.

3 pieces of advice for yourself when you were a student...

It’s okay not to know what you want to do and be, or what kind of job you want after life at university. Just take whatever opportunity you get and learn as you go.

Have fun and get involved! University has a lot to offer beyond the lecture hall. Be sure to get involved in any clubs or associations that interest you.

Make connections. This can be with your peers at university, as they will ultimately be your colleagues one day. In every aspect of your life, connecting to other people is so important.


Yifan Qin

Yifan Qin, Civil Engineer

Location: Melbourne

University: University of Melbourne

Degree completed: Master of Engineering (Civil)

Strongest Aurecon Attribute: Inquisitive

My experience with Aurecon

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 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 them on LinkedIn. The world is willing to help you grow more than you imagine.

Dana Crier

Dana Crier, Mechanical Engineer

Location: Perth

University: University of Western Australia

Degree(s) completed: Master of Professional Engineering (Mechanical)

Strongest Aurecon Attribute: Resourceful

My experience with Aurecon

I’ve wanted to be an engineer since I was in Year 10 when my dad took me to an industry panel presentation. After hearing about the work an engineer does, the industries they can work in and the travel opportunities, I decided to pursue engineering. I studied at the University of Western Australia, completing an undergraduate degree in civil and mechanical engineering, and later obtaining a Master of Professional Engineering. 

Being a mechanical engineer in the energy and industrials unit, I specifically work on projects regarding bulk material handling and process systems. In the last year I’ve been able to work on a range of projects within this area, such as the upgrade of a tailings pipeline and the design of the compressed air system and hydraulic lines to be installed in a maintenance workshop. 

The range of projects and the chance to work with different departments, means there are many diverse learning opportunities at Aurecon. On one big project that involved doing multiple smaller projects to increase productivity and efficiency, my tasks included modelling and doing calculations of the process water. I then looked at how upgrading the pumps, valves or installing new pipelines would improve the process system. While working on this project I gained experience working with vendors, liaising with site personnel, and working with the contractor to determine the cost and schedule of the project – which developed my soft skills, like communication, to collaborate with future clients.

One of the things I enjoy most about my job is working with my team and the chance to work with people who have a range of experiences and different engineering specialisations. We have quite a varied team within the energy and industrials unit, so there are different career options and projects to work on if you’re interested in specialising in a field or managing projects. I also enjoy that you get the mix of the office and on-site experience where you have the chance to see different project sites. It’s good to get out there and see what you are working on, see the layout of the equipment, talk to site personnel, and see what solution might be best for the project outcome. Aurecon has a strict safety procedure for on-site inspections with our safety and wellbeing the priority. Before going for an on-site visit, you need to be fully inducted and attend training sessions to ensure you can watch out for yourself and others.

Depending on what projects I’m working on at the time, my typical day at Aurecon can vary quite a lot – from meetings with the project team or clients, to doing calculations, modelling, or writing reports. I’m also currently one of the Perth Co-Chairs of the Limelight committee, which is our network of emerging professionals and graduates at Aurecon. Between my normal tasks, I also help organise fun and inspiring events and initiatives for our Perth office such as ‘Coffee Roulette’, where graduates and senior leaders pair up to have a casual chat about their career, experience or advice, or project showcases -  a series of presentations from different projects to give graduates an insight into what other teams are working on.

It’s really rewarding being able to run events that can help recent graduates acclimatise to working fulltime and provide them with opportunities to meet senior leaders around the company. Management fully support Limelight, as the feedback sessions with senior leadership have opened their eyes to new ways of thinking, new ideas, and hearing the voice of the future thought leaders of our company and within the wider industry. I think it’s a great way to get involved and I enjoy meeting graduates from other teams who I don’t typically work with. 

As well as the development opportunities you can get from Limelight, Aurecon provides other more formal learning and development, too. Aurecon values career development and supports it with the Mentoring for Success Programme and initiatives like Let’s Talk, which allow us to chat about our role expectations with our managers, helping us align our passions to our goals and working on projects that will provide learning experiences. As a graduate this gives us the chance to develop our skills in the areas we want to pursue further down the line, such as developing relationships with clients, learning technical skills and adapting to the changing market. I value these meaningful talks with manager because it means I can continue to set and achieve my goals and progress my career in a supportive space.

My best advice to graduates

  1. Take advantage of all opportunities that come your way. You never know who you may meet or what skills you will gain; networking may lead to future opportunities. 
  2. Get in the habit of separating work from personal time so that you achieve a healthy work/life balance. 
  3. Make the most of the time you have after work to play a sport, find a new hobby, or catch up with friends. Having plans after work makes the day go faster and you have something to look forward to.

Charlotte Yeo

Job Title: Student Civil Engineer
University Attended: UNSW
Degree qualification: Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours)
Year of graduation: 2022

When Charlotte Yeo first started out as an intern at Aurecon, she was unsure which career path to take. But time in the Roads team helped uncover her passion and paved the way for her career as a graduate. 

  1. How did you end up studying engineering?
    I was born into a ‘maths and science-oriented’ family, so I kind of knew when I was younger that my future career was most likely going to be related in that field. I never thought that I would be into engineering because I was more interested in physics when I was in high school. It wasn’t until I won the Engineers Australia Year 10 prize at my school when I started wondering about what it would mean to be an engineer. 
    I attended an all-girls school that didn’t have an engineering subject, so I took design and technology as an elective course. This is where I discovered my passion for designing solutions for complex problems that have a positive impact. After my major work for design and technology in Year 12 was nominated to be in Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum, I became 100% certain that I wanted to become an engineer. 
  2. What was your internship at Aurecon like? 
    The Internship Programme at Aurecon was such a rewarding experience that enabled me to grow as an engineer and as an individual. 
    I joined the Roads team in our Sydney office, which was an area of engineering that I didn’t have much experience in at university. The majority of my time was spent working on one of the milestones of the Great Western Highway Tunnel’s concept design, where I worked with another engineer in our team to design the active transport corridor and directional signage for the project.
    Despite my lack of experience in this area, I am really grateful that I became a part of this project because it gave me a taste of different engineering disciplines. This helped me understand which path I wanted to pursue after studying, and it’s now safe to say that my heart is in roads engineering.
    Once the Internship Programme finished, I continued to work 2 to 3 days a week at Aurecon while still attending university. After I complete my degree at the end of 2022, I am excited to continue working with Aurecon’s Roads team, but this time as part of the Graduate Programme!
  3. What were the highlights of your internship?
    I want to say the whole internship was a highlight as I loved it so much! I loved working on the Great Western Highway Tunnel because I didn’t expect that I would be able to work on such an important and critical project as an intern. 
    I also thoroughly enjoyed the innovation challenge which all the interns across Australia and New Zealand participated in and learned a lot about Aurecon’s innovation tools. We were placed into groups of five and had to create a solution for Aurecon to help employees reduce waste at home, office, or a third space. As part of the challenge, we presented our ideas to fellow interns, our line managers and even members of the senior leadership team including managing directors.
    And lastly, the people were also a highlight. I felt so supported by my manager and other colleagues whom I worked and became friends with. I felt really valued and like I had something I could offer. 
  4. What were the biggest challenges you faced during your internship and how did you overcome them?
    Unfortunately, a COVID-19 lockdown occurred during my internship. This meant that two months of my three-month internship were completed online, which, at times, made learning from others more difficult. I learned how valuable coming to the office was so we can learn from experienced engineers. 
    To overcome this, I learned to harness my communication skills so I could work well with my colleagues and clarify if I needed further information to understand context around tasks.
  5. What’s one lesson you learned from your internship that you didn’t learn at university?
    The material I learned from uni was a great foundational basis of knowledge, but working as a design engineer was so different, as everything links to the real world. I learned a lot of technical engineering skills and essential CAD software while also developing relationships with clients. 
  6. What advice can you give to students and future interns?
    Never be afraid to have a go at things and ask for help! Not knowing something isn’t a weakness but an opportunity to grow. People aren’t there to give you a grade like at university, they genuinely want to see you grow and develop. 

A Day in the Life

Aurecon


Vaishali Haria, Overhead Line Engineer

University Attended: Monash University 

Degree qualification: Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering 

Year of graduation: 2019 

6:30am

I like to kickstart my day with a swim or a walk. I’m very lucky to live close to the bay so on some days, I go for a swim there, and on other days, I swim at the pool. I find starting my morning with some exercise gets me ready to smash out my work for the day!

 

 

 

 

8:30am

After some exercise, I refuel with some breakfast, and turn my work laptop on. I typically use the first 30 minutes of my day to go over my task list, prioritise my tasks, and note down any questions I have before a meeting with the project team. 

9:00am

I jump into the first meeting for the day with our project team where we go through the list of tasks we need to action. I use these meetings to ask questions, be it technical, project or process related, that will help me with my tasks and my overall understanding of the project. 

9:30am

Moving from one meeting to the next. My meeting at 9.30 is with the wider Melbourne overhead wiring team. We always start a meeting with a safety or cultural moment. Today, we spoke about the recent shark attack that happened in NSW and reminded ourselves how important it is to consider and respect Australian wildlife.

Then, we go over what each member of the team is working on, lessons learnt in the past week, and also spend some time casually chatting. 

11:00am

After my meetings are done. I start working on some of the tasks on my list. Sometimes, it’s admin related, but it mostly involves design tasks on Inventor, Revit and/or AutoCAD. Since I have a submission due tomorrow, most of my time today is spent in making changes on AutoCAD and Inventor.

 

 

 

12:30pm

For lunch, I aim to get away from my desk. If the weather permits, I go out for a walk and catch-up with a friend or colleague. Today, I caught up with a work colleague virtually.

 

 

 

1:30pm

After lunch, I like to spend time working on my task list for Limelight, our network for emerging professionals. As part of the Limelight committee, specifically as the Health and Safety pillar lead, my team and I plan and organise events for emerging professionals at Aurecon – from social events, wellbeing events and events related to environmental sustainability. Today, we are planning our first social event of the year, which is really exciting!  

2:30pm

After an hour, I go back to working on my design project which takes up most of my afternoon. I’m currently working on some comments and feedback I received on my design from my design checker and I am aiming to finish it before the end of the day so we’re on track for client delivery tomorrow. 

5:30pm

The time I log off work varies. But since we have a submission tomorrow, I finish up slightly later than usual to give myself time to work on the project and ensure I am happy with the drawings and the reports that we will issue. 

To cap off my day, I like to spend my evenings catching up with friends, whether it’s cooking a meal for them or going out for dinner. Homemade pizzas are on the menu for tonight – yum!

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put it and have you worked weekends at all?

Longest day would be a 12 hour day when I had to fly to site in Central Queensland, attend a workshop and then fly back in the one day. I have not had to work Saturdays thankfully!

Can you let us know what company you are working for and which area of the business you work in or which rotation you are currently in? 

Aurecon Group PTY LTD - Infrastructure: Rail and Mass Transit - Signalling

What was the first 6 months like?  What have you really enjoyed? 

The first 6 months have been challenging, especially working on projects at home due to the recent lockdown in Sydney. The learning curve was steep, though thanks to the regular virtual support from my line manager, seniors and fellow graduates, I was able to understand and practise my role as if I was in the office sitting amongst them. That is what I have enjoyed about my team, the indifferent work culture and support regardless of being virtual or not. Aurecon's work environment greatly supports new graduates in all manners.

Was your position with the Aurecon Grad Programme as you expected it to be? Did anything take you by surprise?

I personally did not have any expectations of my position. I was simply exhilarated and anxious to learn what the new position entailed. In saying that, the role I was placed in is everything I hoped for in a graduate role. From learning new skills to working with peers from varying disciplines to overall support received from Aurecon and my team, all these new experiences have been immensely surprising and exciting.

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put it and have you worked weekends at all?

The longest day I have had to work is 9.5 hours for a project submission. It can be challenging to say the least, though you are on the same boat as the rest of the project team. It is a collective and collaborative effort. I have not had to work Saturdays.

On a day to day basis, what do you work on?

Report writing, document reviews, comments responses, circuit sketches and markups, coordination conversations with project team members rushing to meet the deadline and the notorious email adventures.

Have you worked on any projects at Aurecon?

I have worked on a TfNSW TAP project in a regional area, bidding project, construction design and coordination project and a digital project.

What systems do you use for your role in the graduate programme?

Aurecon has a database of systems in place to help individuals and teams complete day-to-day and project deliverables. From a Rail perspective, systems such as MS Teams, ProjectWise, AutoCAD Civil, MicroStation, 12d, BIM, Revit, Navisworks, Bluebeam and many more are utilised daily.

What sort of support are you provided at Aurecon?

Aurecon places great importance on Health and Safety of its employees providing mental health and wellbeing services and professional assistance services accommodating to all employees' needs.

My line manager also checked-in/checks-in every week to make sure I am well and provide any help if needed.

I feel reassured of my decision to be a graduate at Aurecon.

What skills do you think you need to succeed in your role and do they differ from what you envisioned?

From my perspective, early in the Graduate Program, effective communication/collaborative and technical skills are needed to succeed in any position/role. Knowing my position is technical-based, I did expect this would be the case and I have not had to expect anything different. Once you build a firm base, you can then pursue other skills and goals.

What are the best perks or benefits at Aurecon?

Yes Flex (flexible working hours and locations) has been the most praised perk, for me. Accommodating many employees and their personal needs whilst allowing them to work simultaneously feels like almost like an ineffable treasure. Along with physical and mental health perks, Aurecon covers all round perks for every employees' needs.

Social Responsibility

Aurecon


Corporate Social Responsibility

In the work we do, we have the real potential to make an impact on society. We have the ability to bring ideas to life – to turn ideas into something real – something beneficial for everyone.

Aurecon and its people embrace the philosophy of giving back to the community by encouraging proactive involvement in the company's multiple corporate social investment initiatives and voluntary programmes.

We understand each community's needs are unique, so our programmes encompass different aims – from empowering the young to become successful, active citizens, through to financial assistance for food and shelter.  

Our profession enables our people to contribute in the most practical and effective ways by providing input into community development and infrastructure in needy areas around the globe. Many of our employees are also giving back’ on a personal level in their local communities, which is something we encourage and support as an organisation.

Aurecon's Bridge Building Competition: A 'real-world' engineering experience

From small beginnings in classrooms across Australia and New Zealand, to designing tomorrow’s greatest pieces of infrastructure, the Aurecon Bridge Building Competition offers secondary school students ‘real-world’ experience of what they can look forward to as future engineering students and professionals.

Aurecon believes that the engineering, science and technology industries must work together and lead efforts to make STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths subjects) more accessible and appealing to young students. The Aurecon Bridge Building Competition encourages students to unlock their potential by engaging with STEM early.

Indigenous Engineers of the Future

The Aurecon Perth and Sydney offices have partnered with Engineering Aid Australia to support the facilitation of Indigenous Engineering Summer Schools. The Summer Schools, run by Curtin University in Perth and Sydney University, engage indigenous Australian high school students in engineering as a potential career.

The programme supports commitments in Aurecon Australia’s Reconciliation Action Plan and allows us to network and connect with young Indigenous people and encourage a career in engineering. We also get to showcase our digital and innovation initiatives during the networking sessions. For example, in Sydney we used the Virtual Reality sets to give the students a tour of the Barangaroo reserve. 

Aurecon is committed to increasing opportunities for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander peoples and this is one very direct way for us to do that. It is great to talk to year 10 students about what engineering is all about and to encourage them to enter our industry. It gives the students insight into the possible career path they could have within the industry. For Aurecon, it supports our path to diversity of thought and representing the communities in which we operate, by ensuring Indigenous Australians are represented in our organisation.

Partnering with Engineers Without Borders 

Aurecon continues a corporate partnership with Engineers Without Borders (EWB), a not-for-profit organisation that connects, educates and empowers people through humanitarian engineering. EWB provides opportunities for corporate partners to contribute skills and expertise to poverty alleviation projects and community development, and to participate in initiatives that lead sector-wide change and innovation. Aurecon staff are also involved in mentoring the next generation of engineers and non-engineers by participating in the EWB Challenge, fundraising activities, and knowledge-sharing events through the EWB-Aurecon partnership.

Responsible Environmental Footprints

We strive to manage our environmental footprints in a responsible way.

At Aurecon, we use an environmental management system which is certified to ISO 14001 across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. We support the precautionary approach as envisaged by Principle 15 of the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development. 

Irrespective of our certification status, we understand the undertakings made in our Environmental Policy are international commitments. We look beyond compliance to minimising our greenhouse gas emissions, energy and water consumption and our waste and to take everyone at Aurecon along on this journey.

For most of our offices, we calculate the carbon footprint on a regular basis and communicate the results. To have sound and accurate carbon emission data, an independent external provider verifies our inventory report according to ISO 14064-1:2006, covering Scope 1, Scope 2 and limited categories of Scope 3 of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

Net Zero by 2025

Our business is one source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, so we are taking responsibility and implementing appropriate measures to reduce the impact we have on the world. We have made a commitment to become net zero carbon in our operations by 2025. The move to decarbonise our business and transition our services comes in anticipation of a 100 percent net zero emissions future.

As part of our plan to decarbonise our own business and make the biggest difference, we aim to actively reduce direct emissions from owned or controlled sources (Scope 1); the generation of purchased energy (Scope 2); and all other indirect emissions from Aurecon activities we do not own or control, such as activities associated with business travel, procurement, waste and water. We will achieve our targets through risk-based decisions, balancing investment in emissions reduction measures versus offsets. Over time we anticipate the need for offsets will reduce.

But how do we make Aurecon’s impact bigger? The answer lies in our projects. This is where we can take our knowledge and skills to scale. As engineers and advisors, we can re-imagine the way things work. We can find better design solutions which will save our clients and our planet significant effluents and emissions. We can listen to project stakeholders and find solutions which maximise social value beyond the immediate technical solution. There is always a better way. We want to find it with our clients and stakeholders.

Mental health recognition

We believe that engagement is the key to improving health and safety.

The health and safety of employees covers both physical as well as mental health. In 2015 Aurecon launched the Mind Matters programme in Australia and New Zealand to improve awareness of mental ill-health and in turn help to reduce mental health stigma. As of 2018 the programme now operates internationally. In December 2020, we have been accredited with Mental Healthy First Aid Australia (MHFA)’s highest honour of the Gold Level Mental Health First Aid as a Skilled Workplace – a program that recognises workplaces for their commitment to Mental Health First Aid training and actions.

By remembering the true reason as to why health and safety is important, Aurecon employees are proactive in keeping themselves and their colleagues safe. The concept ‘Because people depend on you’ is more than a slogan, it is a call to action that empowers our employees to take time to do their work safely and stop any unsafe acts or work. We take our humanistic approach to health and safety to our clients and joint ventures, including our culture as well as our tools, knowledge and competency.

Perks & Benefits

Aurecon


The benefits of flexible work

Would you be happier if you had more say over how and when you work? Because the future of work is changing, there is a need to adapt in order to create a future-ready workforce with nimble, flexible work environments and a fluidity between traditional models of work and on-demand work.

Aurecon is ahead of the curve and leading the engineering sector in workplace flexibility with initiatives such as YesFlex ‒ which empowers employees of all positions to embrace flexible working and nominate their start and end times. The key to the success of Yes Flex was employees and managers working together, innovatively and creatively, to find work pattern solutions.

Aurecon’s performance process, Let’s Talk, is a conversation-based framework that enables you to align your contribution, professional development and career progress with Aurecon’s goals. It ensures transparency, consistency and equity in how we set and measure goals, and ultimately reward employees for their contribution. The simple, streamlined performance process is designed to facilitate meaningful conversations across the organisation that lead to strong performance outcomes.

Limelight – Aurecon’s emerging professional network

Aurecon has a network of proactive emerging professionals who actively promote a culture of innovation, involvement and improvement.

This network is called Limelight and they are the driving force behind many personal and professional development initiatives for our people. Limelight gives our emerging professionals from around our international offices a voice and this voice provides the crucial feedback loop that is needed within the business.

Close to 50 per cent of Aurecon’s people are classified as emerging professionals, making them a large part of our workforce.

While the main goal of Limelight is to enable emerging professional to lead rewarding and rich careers, a direct benefit to the business is that our emerging professionals are more passionate, driven and engaged in our clients’ projects and the communities in which we operate.

Management fully supports this initiative as the feedback sessions with senior leadership has opened their eyes to new ways of thinking, new ideas and the voice of the future thought-leaders of our company and within the wider industry.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion diversity icon

Aurecon


At Aurecon people are at the heart of everything we do – the people we work with and the people we design for – and we love our differences.

We want everyone to know that Aurecon is a place where they belong, where they feel connected, where they can develop and have equal access to opportunities.

Where each person can celebrate what makes them unique and celebrate the communities to which they belong. Where the stories of our colleagues enrich us, and we can actively encourage and support one another.

We will lead in creating a new experience of work, which honours our people, their uniqueness, and their personal circumstances. Whether that means working part time, taking leave to return to country (as an Australian iIndigenous person), feeling comfortable disclosing a disability, working flexibly, or correctly using the name or pronoun of a colleague’s same-sex partner.

We are committed to building an inclusive culture for the wellbeing of our people and to deliver better outcomes for our clients and communities.

A workplace where our people feel valued, have a sense of belonging, can contribute without fear of discrimination or retaliation, and have equal access to opportunities.

We have prioritised diversity, equity, and inclusion in our organisational strategy. Having leaders who believe diversity, equity, and inclusion is an important human rights and business issue, is driving change in our culture. Through inclusive language and behaviours, we are creating a culture that:

  • Makes everyone feel they can bring their whole self to work and reach their full potential inclusive of all cultures, abilities, ages, ethnicities, religious beliefs, sex, genders, gender identities and sexual orientations
  • Rejects harassment, bullying, discrimination, and stereotypes and actively supports difference, builds connections, and provides psychological and cultural safety, where people can be themselves and express contrary opinions without negative consequences

Our focus is on leadership, policies, language and behaviour, and targets. That is how we reach our diversity and inclusion commitments. Through collaborative ways of working, and the actions and words of our leaders and our people we bring our policies – which are explicitly inclusive – to life.

Cultural Diversity

Aurecon


At Aurecon, we believe that by embracing cultural diversity and inclusion, we drive innovation with a cross cultural, cross gender, cross disciplinary workforce. Innovation thrives in inclusive cultures where leaders support diverse teams. This means we accept applications from all backgrounds, including international students for our graduate programme.

At Aurecon, we are committed to creating sustainable and meaningful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia, and Māori in New Zealand, as highlighted in our Reconciliation Action Plan and through our partnerships with Iwi.

Design to innovate sessions are one way in which we are ‘turning the dial’ on diversity and inclusion to celebrate cultural diversity. Aurecon utilises employees’ diverse perspectives through design thinking sessions to co-create better design outcomes for our clients. The sessions are crucial to enabling Aurecon to be more innovative.

LGBTIQ+

LGBTIQ+ diversity icon

Aurecon


Aurecon is dedicated to improving the significant under-representation of LGBTI+ members in STEM. 

Three initiatives that support LGBTI+ inclusion are:

Aurecon Pride

We established Aurecon Pride – our network for leaders and employees who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex and other members of the community (LGBTI+) – in 2014.

Aurecon strategically drives LGBTI+ inclusion through its Aurecon Pride Action Plan, which was developed with guidance from Pride in Diversity.

Pride in Diversity is Australia's first and only not-for-profit workplace programme designed specifically to assist Australian employers with the inclusion LGBTI+ employees.

The Aurecon Pride action plan for Australia and New Zealand focusses activity to increase LGBTI+ inclusion and aims to:

  • Create a safe and inclusive environment where people can be their true selves
  • Increase staff engagement in a work environment that is respectful and inclusive of individual difference
  • Mitigate harassment, bullying, and discrimination risks, be compliant, and promote a genuine duty of care to our people
  • Build the Aurecon brand, enhancing our reputation and communicating our commitment to diversity and inclusion
  • Become an employer of choice in competitive markets by attracting, retaining and engaging the top talent

LGBTI+ in STEM

Aurecon is playing a broader role in addressing the significant under-representation of LGBTI+ members in STEM. We are doing this by co-founding:

  • LGBT+ in STEM – a New Zealand professional networking group and support platform for LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) individuals aimed at improving the visibility of LGBTI in workplaces
  • InterEngineer in Australia for LGBTI+ individuals and allies working in the engineering sector

In January 2019, Aurecon became the first consulting engineer in New Zealand to be Rainbow Tick certified. We maintained our accreditation in 2020.

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.

InterEngineer

In November 2020, Aurecon, along with engineering peak body Engineers Australia, led the establishment of InterEngineer, a network of representatives from 10 organisations in the engineering sector.

InterEngineer is a network of LGBTQIA+ engineering professionals and allies from metro, regional and remote Australia. Created by organisations across the engineering sector to support LGBTQIA+ professionals and allies in the workplace through networking, leadership, and advocacy for greater inclusion practices.

InterEngineer’s mission is to bring together the LGBTQIA+ community across the engineering profession. With the aim of increasing visibility and advocacy for LGBTQIA+ people and groups currently in the industry and providing a conduit to engage with students, remote/regional populations and other underrepresented communities.

Our commitment to LGBTI+ inclusion has seen us awarded with:

  • Silver Employer in Pride in Diversity’s Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) in May 2021. Bronze Employer status in May 2019 and May 2020.
  • Highly Commended in the Partners Life Emerging Award category at the 2019 New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards

Disability

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.

 
 

Gender Equality

Gender Equality diversity icon

Aurecon


We aim to improve gender representation in our workforce and leadership, and to play our part in progressing gender equality. We do this for each Aurecon employee, for Aurecon, for our clients and for the communities in which we live, work and play.

Our focus is mostly on professional roles, technical roles, and leadership positions.

Aurecon holds an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA). We use this citation ― received for our commitment to promoting gender equality in Australian workplaces ― as a framework for our gender equality strategy. While this is a journey, we continue to make progress on our goal to disrupt gendered expectations and norms and seek genuine choice and opportunity for all employees.

Aurecon is also a founding member of The Diversity Agenda in New Zealand. In February 2020, as part of our continual diversity and inclusion aspirations, we signed the Diversity Agenda’s Diversity Agenda Accord.

William Cox, Aurecon’s Chief Executive Officer and Louise Adams, Chief Operating Officer, are both members of industry-specific Champions of Change groups. William is a member of the STEM group and Louise is a member of the Consult Australia group.

We work towards gender equality by:

  • Ensuring a gender lens over the employee lifecycle
  • Setting gender targets
  • Conducting quarterly pay parity audits and remedying any emerging gaps
  • Providing support for parents and flexible working in Australia and New Zealand, and to some extent, in Asia
  • Implementing a policy to support victims/survivors of domestic and family violence in Australia and New Zealand and providing support as needed in Asia
  • Taking action to prevent and respond to sexual harassment

Our commitment to gender equality and a flexible working culture has seen us awarded with:

Gender equality initiatives include:

Pay parity audits – Aurecon conducted its first like-for-like pay equality review during 2015 in Australia, and in 2017 in New Zealand. Today Aurecon conducts quarterly reviews and remedies any emerging gaps.

Recruitment and gender targets - Aurecon is building a culture of genuine inclusion to increase female representation. Aurecon’s actions range from recruitment through to progression and retention. Aurecon sets targets to accelerate change. Targets bring a spotlight to barriers to recruitment and progression and they encourage deliberate behaviour to counter systemic and human bias.

Aurecon sets gender targets at three levels:

  1. At the overall percentage of women in the workforce level
  2. At graduate intake level
  3. At management levels, which are pipelines to leadership positions

Investing in our people - Our development initiatives to help us deliver on our inclusive diversity commitments include:

  • Leadership development: In 2021 Aurecon will re-launch a comprehensive set of inclusive leadership development experiences. We have developed all programmes with equity and equality in mind and use a range of online cutting-edge platforms, providers, and delivery formats.
  • Aurecon Design Academy: Three-year training programme aimed at developing future Design Directors through a series of intensive and distance educational interventions for a group of senior technical practitioners selected as Design Scholars
  • Aurecon U and LinkedIn Learning: Digital learning platforms designed to advance technical expertise, improve business acumen, build leadership capability, and support career aspirations
  • Careers hub: custom built hub on the company intranet to help foster career growth and help Aurecon employees understand the availability of career paths and opportunities
  • Emerging Professionals Programme (EPP): Aurecon’s Graduate Programme
  • i40: skills development programme focused on: design thinking methodology, strategic conversations, visual thinking, facilitation, and design
  • Mentoring for Success Programme: Formal mentoring programme partnering experienced employees with more junior employees, focused on developing leadership skills, technical expertise, project management skills and client skills
  • Project Leader/Project Management Skills: The Aurecon Project Leader Capability Development Programme provides a career development path for emerging and existing project leaders. The programme allows participants to share experiences and apply practical solutions to successfully manage Aurecon's risks and deliver projects effectively.

Three policies which support gender diversity and inclusion:

Parenting support - Aurecon’s Shared Care parental leave policy, introduced in late 2017 in Australia and New Zealand, aims to help disrupt gender stereotypes around parents’ working and caring roles. The policy provides financial incentive options that support all parents to step into primary carer roles and play a more active part in caring for children. These incentives apply during a child’s first year of life.

Shared care is inclusive of all families including same sex relationships, and is available to birth parents, adoptive, surrogate, and foster parents. Shared Care is part of an over-arching policy to provide our people with genuine choice about how they balance work and caring responsibilities.

Additionally, Aurecon has also partnered with Talking Talent, a global coaching consulting provider, to provide targeted support to parents, carers, and their managers.

Workplace flexibility - We all have different reasons and motivations for working flexibly, which is why Aurecon’s flexible working policy (Australia and New Zealand) provides the opportunity for everyone, in any role, to consider how, when and where they work and how they can perform at their best while managing commitments outside of work. We embrace work-life balance from the top down and all our leaders receive training in what kinds of flexible work options are possible and how to accommodate these within their teams.

Intimate partner, domestic and family violence (Australia and New Zealand) - Aurecon acknowledges intimate partner, domestic and family violence as a workplace issue. We provide leave, financial, and administrative support to employees experiencing domestic and family violence and referral to external support services.

Indigenous Programmes

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders diversity icon

Aurecon


Aurecon deeply respects and acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia and New Zealand. Our commitment is to create sustainable and meaningful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia, and Māori and Pasifika in New Zealand.

We demonstrate our commitment in the following ways:

Indigenous inclusion in Australia

In Australia we drive progress through the Reconciliation Action Plan, where we bring ideas to life in the following areas:

  • Creating meaningful career pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Indigenous work experience students, cadets, interns, and grads join Aurecon each year.
  • Connecting Aurecon’s people, clients, and community partners to, and raising awareness of, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures through training, storytelling and celebrating periods of recognition such as National Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week.
  • Collaborating on sustainable procurement partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander owned enterprises, based on trust, mutual respect, and a shared passion to support social outcomes through economic returns. Aurecon is a member of Supply Nation.
  • Undertaking Engineers without Borders projects in Indigenous communities

Partnerships and scholarships

  • Since 2013, Aurecon has been partnering with University Technology Sydney to develop future Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders through the Galuwa Engineering and IT Experience. A week-long program held by University of Technology Sydney for Indigenous high school students to discover the opportunities that studying engineering or information technology can provide.
  • The partnership with University Technology Sydney includes delivery of a three-year Galuwa Indigenous Scholarship. The scholarship provides financial support, mentoring, paid work placements, and pastoral care support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students seeking support to successfully complete an engineering degree.
  • Partnering with Engineering Aid Australia, University of Sydney, and Curtin University, to implement the Indigenous Australian Engineering School (IAES) programme
  • Partnering with MADALAH, which includes making available a scholarship to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students wishing to further their education in a tertiary setting within engineering

Indigenous inclusion in New Zealand

In New Zealand we drive progress through our partnerships with Iwi. Aurecon has a strong commitment to building relationships with Māori and acknowledging the role the local Iwi play in each area.

To demonstrate this commitment Aurecon has established individual Memorandums of Understanding with Ngai Tahu in the South Island, Waikato-Tainui in the Central North Island and Ngāti Whātua in Auckland. Aurecon has co-designed initiatives with various Iwi to improve work and life outcomes for Māori. These range from revenue-generating projects to initiatives focused on corporate social responsibility and placements for young Māori in our New Zealand offices, as a pathway to work and career development in the engineering sector.

In August 2019, Aurecon became a TupuToa Support level partner. TupuToa is an innovative internship programme creating pathways for Māori and Pasifika students into careers in the corporate and professional sectors.

Through this partnership Aurecon also honours its promise in the Ngāti Whātua Memorandum of Understanding of growing Māori and Pasifika business leaders, whilst looking to contribute locally to Aurecon's Australia and New Zealand strategy for diversity and inclusion. The aim is to grow and support the interns so they can bring their whole selves to work, adding value to our workplace simply through their unique cultural lenses that they bring.

Aurecon New Zealand's inclusion strategy has a specific focus on developing Māori cultural awareness. We have a role to play in preserving Tikanga Māori and Te Reo (Māori language) and our strategy acknowledges this.

In both Australia and New Zealand, we promote diversity and inclusion of Indigenous peoples through cultural awareness, cadetships, scholarships, career pathway events, cultural activities, event celebrations and business engagement.
