The Opportunity 

Join the cost management and quantity surveyor team based in Dunedin, where you will be working on a diverse range of client projects in the city and surrounding region.  With the opportunity to significantly develop your cost management, quantity surveyor and project management career. 

Dunedin is a city on the brink of unprecedented growth and redevelopment, making this a unique opportunity to make a difference across the region.  You will be working with the team to deliver consulting services across some of the largest growth projects in the broader Otago, Southland and South Island region including commercial buildings, education, civil, infrastructure, community and industrial development projects.  You will be working autonomously, under the leadership of our Southern Cost Management team, supported by the wider Beca team in Dunedin.  The ability to build collaborative relationships, when based remotely, will be key to success in this role.

At Beca, you will have access to a truly multi discipline business where you can draw on technical experts to support delivery of significant and complex projects.  You will have the opportunity to learn from others who are experts in this field, gaining exposure to a wide base of consulting services in a highly collaborative business, that is employee owned. Significant career opportunities exist across functions, disciplines, people leadership, management or delivery roles depending on how you want to shape your career.

​About you 

In this role, you will have plenty of scope for success and we are looking for a high performing professional with a real passion for cost management, who understands logical costing methods, as well as having a client first focus.  You will enjoy working in a team, have strong relationship building skills with others based in different offices, yet have the autonomy from working in the Dunedin office. 

You will have the ability to connect with others (both team members and external clients), who can describe complex methods in simple terms.  You will enjoy building relationships and understand key project requirements and display commercial judgement. 

This role may suit candidates from a broad range of backgrounds.  While the role covers a range of sectors, a background in civil infrastructure, transport or buildings as well as experience across the region would be an advantage.  You will have demonstrated experience across the cost management function, have strong consulting capability and demonstrate the ability to work with others to solve complex client problems.

Ultimately this is a key role to strengthen our regional Cost Management and Project Strategy & Delivery business. We are looking for a savvy, innovative and commercially minded professional with a collaborative approach, who is credible.
