Each year we employ up to 150 summer interns across Australia and New Zealand who work full-time in a Beca office. We have a huge range of graduates joining us from engineering, planning, science and digital backgrounds, to name a few. 

When do applications open? 
Applications for the 2024/2025 programme open on the 8th July, 2024.

How long is the internship? 
Our summer students usually start work in November after exams are finished. The intern programme is eight weeks long with two weeks off over Christmas and New Year's, so you'll finish up in mid-February.

What will I do as a Beca intern? 
You will work alongside other interns on a summer intern project – a real business problem facing our industry. 

Will I get paid? 
Yes! Your hourly rate will depend on your experience, year of study and any extra qualifications. But don't worry - it's a competitive rate in the market!

What kinds of interns does Beca take? 
That depends on the needs across our business each year. In the past we’ve taken a mixture of engineering students with an interest in civil, electrical, geotechnical, geology, software, mechanical, structural, transportation. Some years we also take survey, GIS, planning, HR, quantity surveying and project management students. We'll share the locations and positions on our website when applications open - follow our Grad Facebook and Instagram for updates!

Why should I choose Beca for work experience?
We’ve got over 1,500 technical gurus, so you'll have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry. You will gain invaluable consulting experience from our multidisciplinary support network. Plus, you will get exposure to a huge range of markets, from water, defence, education, healthcare, transportation and infrastructure, to food and beverage and power – helping you decide what interests you!

How the graduate application works:

Apply online. You’ll need to upload your cover letter, CV and academic transcript (we know this won't be your official one, so just send us where you are at so far). You can also complete optional video submissions to help support your application. 

Applications close. If you have missed the deadline or your application isn't successful, we encourage you to keep in touch – there are other grad opportunities open throughout the year. 

Applicant screening begins. Once applications have closed, all applications will be reviewed and then shortlisted by our team. If we’re progressing with your application, we’ll invite you to our kickoff session. If your application isn’t successful, we will be sure to let you know via email.

Kick-off sessions. Before all interviews begin shortlisted candidates will have the opportunity to come to a one-hour virtual session we have before interviews where you can learn more about Beca, the graduate program, and get to ask our current grads and the recruitment team questions. 

Interviews. This is where it gets exciting! We want to know more about you, what you like to do outside of university and why you want to join Beca. We’ll also ask you to talk us through a case study exercise, along with standard behavioural-based interview questions. To help you prepare, you’ll be emailed given the case studies a few days before the interview. 

Employment offers. We'll contact you as soon as a decision has been made. If you're offered a job, we will complete a reference check and then send your formal offer online through your candidate profile. A background check will be completed, prior to you starting with us and an education check will be completed at the beginning of 2024 to confirm your qualification/s.

Onboarding. We're looking forward to welcoming you to Beca! Most of our graduates commence in early March where you will be welcomed into our Graduate Development Program. A support person (buddy) will be there to support you to ensure you’ll feel part of the team from day one.
