Environments at Beca

We are the designers, the planners, scientists and the environmental engineers who understand the social, economic and environmental implications on projects. Who work with stakeholders and local communities, to provide sustainable, culturally sensitive and workable solutions.

You’ll be part of a team of trusted advisors; committed to meeting the environmental goals for projects of all sizes. And together we’ll nurture and apply our creative thinking to help future-proof the spaces where we live, work and play.

The opportunity  

At any level, in order to succeed, it is crucial you are provided with the right resources and we believe our Planning and Environments Business is the ideal environment for a Planner to take the next step in their career.

Beca is continuing to win new projects of various scope both across the country and here in Palmerston North. We now need a planner to support projects as part of our Central region.  We will be looking to you to apply your experience from a statutory, environmental, policy and strategic planning perspective to our work.

Palmerston North is an ideal outdoor lifestyle choice with easy access to the mountains, sea, hunting and fishing. The Palmerston North office is an excellent place to accelerate your career, with a small team you will be leading small projects form the start.

About you

We offer a comprehensive career growth and development program – at Beca your success is our success.

We are the problem-solvers – the thinkers, the creators, the planners and practitioners – who understand their vision and make things happen! We are 3000-plus professionals spread across 19 offices throughout the Asia Pacific.
