Water at Beca

While water is the world’s most precious resource, at Beca, our people are our most precious resource. Together we are transforming our world. We are passionate about what we do and the culture we have developed.

The more diverse we are, the better our ideas, strategies and client solutions will be and the more we will represent our world. We know that we are stronger when people from different backgrounds and perspectives work together.

We are committed to growing an environment where our people have equal opportunity to build a career that reflects their ability & passions and believe in their potential, feel they belong and can be their best selves.

Beca is proudly employee-owned; after a century of operation, employee ownership remains key to Beca’s future. It underpins our positive, purpose-driven and growth-oriented culture;

it sets us apart from our competitors, and it gives meaning to our ‘social contract’. That is, we’re accountable, we have each other’s backs, we don’t let each other down, and we strive for excellence in everything we do.

We recognise that one of the challenges people can face in building their careers is managing work and home life. 

At Beca, we encourage our people to find an arrangement that works for them whether that involves part-time, work from home or flexible working arrangements. We are open to discussing options on how this could work for you for roles across our Water team.

The opportunity

Our Water team works across the water, wastewater, and stormwater, as well as surface waters and irrigation, partnering with clients spanning the municipal, industrial, transportation, commercial, mining and agricultural sectors.

We’re excited about the opportunities ahead of us and are well placed to help New Zealand advance and protect our world for future generations. We all go to work to make every day or every day better in some way. Beca’s work impacts the everyday lives of almost everyone, every day. 

To be part of our motivated and trusted Southern Water team of engineers, scientists, project managers, modellers and designers, we’re looking for a Modeller to join us in our Christchurch office base.

We’re looking for a highly motivated individual who is dedicated to developing and sharing technical innovation to push boundaries and continually challenge and overcome conventions and constraints to make every day better.

Every day will provide you with new challenges and look a little different, overall, this role will see you:

  • Develop hydrological and hydraulic models of hydraulic systems;
  • Analyse and assess hydraulic, GIS and survey data
  • Undertake water resource investigations and planning studies;
  • Provide outs suitable for review for specialist team members

The role is full-time and permanent, with minimum guaranteed hours of 40 hours a week.

About you 

You are a highly motivated Modeller who would like to grow within the Water market, with a strong track record in the successful delivery of modelling in a consulting environment. You have a Bachelor of Science or a relevant, or at least 2 or 3 years of relevant work experience.

This experience will be across technical, delivery and client-facing activities and you will have the natural ability to build wide and effective networks of contacts inside and outside of the organisation, ultimately leading to continuing work and repeat business.

You love to learn, and share knowledge and are someone who can bring a fresh perspective to ensure the development of the people around you. You constantly seek better practice for the overall quality of our work and our client experience.

  • Professional development opportunities.
