About the job

Water at Beca

Our multi-disciplinary team works across water, wastewater and storm water, as well as surface waters and irrigation; partnering with clients spanning the municipal, industrial, transportation, commercial, mining and agricultural sectors. Together we make things happen on projects throughout New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific and South East Asia. As our clients continue to call on our expertise, we’re right there beside them and are looking for more great people to join our team.

We embrace the fact that people are our greatest asset. It’s our people that set us apart, and who our clients keep coming back to. Passionate about what we do and the culture we have developed, we believe that key to our success is the teamwork and collaboration fostered, not only within our Water team, but right across the Beca Group.

This commitment to our people, means that we understand that it’s not always easy juggling work with everything else life throws at us. Which is why we are happy to discuss flexible working arrangements for all opportunities in the Beca team – in either a part-time or full-time capacity.

The Opportunity

We’re keen to speak to stormwater-focused civil engineers looking to join our team in Auckland.

Working in a team of stormwater and water resources specialists, you can expect to be involved in a range of work from consenting, catchment planning and options assessment, to detailed design and construction management. Our clients span central North Island and around New Zealand, across the local government, transportation, industrial, commercial and agricultural sectors. We will support you to deliver flagship projects involving assessing and solving stormwater and water quality management issues; flood modelling; undertaking detailed stormwater engineering designs and developing technical assessments for resource consent applications and stormwater management plans.

In this role it’s essential that you build strong relationships with clients and council, based on understanding their needs as well as maintaining their trust and confidence in our performance, ultimately leading to continuing work and repeat business. You’ll also be exposed to project management and site work.

About You

As an experienced engineer from either a Civil or Environmental Engineering background within a consulting or council environment and able to recognise that stormwater management is much broader than drainage design! You’ll ideally be working toward CPEng status, have local experience and your experience will include not only civil engineering design but also consenting, hydrology, hydraulics of pipe and open channel networks, catchment planning, water quality treatment, and flood risk assessment.

You will have proven technical experience in the stormwater management field, excellent job delivery skills, including work planning and financial acumen, a willingness to learn and try new things and be interested in developing your client relationship skills. Experience in 1D-2D flood modelling software (such as MIKE, TUFLOW or ICM) or CAD drainage packages (Civil3d or 12D) would be advantageous.

What We Offer

A career with Beca will provide you with:

  • Professional development opportunities.
  • A supportive and caring work environment where you can bring your whole self to work.
  • Support with relocation and immigration to suitable applicants
  • Flexible working arrangements to balance your personal / family commitments.
