8.7
8.7 rating for Diversity, based on 48 reviews
Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.
Very supportive with leave, child care, and promotions. Very diverse, lots of women and people from different backgrounds.
Graduate, Brisbane
There are many courses, morning teas and emails around diversity and it's definitely not all talk and no action. I feel that across the board my company keeps diversity front and centre in its decision making.
Graduate, Melbourne
I think we do pretty well on diversity, but we can definitely continue to do better. We have a Diversity and Inclusion Manager who ensures that we are committed to diversity within the company. However, I do feel that I am working in a very diverse environment ' my team has a nice mix of males to females, people from different ethnic backgrounds, and LGBTI+ personnel.
Graduate, Melbourne
Good mix of minorities overall. As a woman, I have only ever been treated with respect, and have never been talked down to. There are women within in my team with leadership positions while working part time to stay home with children. My line manager is openly LGBTI+.
Graduate, Brisbane
I was very pleasantly surprised with the proportion of women in the business, especially leadership positions.
Intern, Melbourne
Probably one of the more forward-thinking and open companies in the consulting industry.

Promotes diversity events and specifically hold events to support women in the workplace. Very strong about the need for diversity to improve the company, and not just meet a quota.
Intern, Brisbane
I am a part of the Aurecon Diversity and Inclusion Committee and we are strongly heading in the direction that Aurecon is a workplace that everyone feels accepted for who they are, and everyone feels comfortable to come to work every day and be themselves. This is a matter Aurecon takes extremely seriously and I would correct this question regarding 'maternity leave'. We don't have 'maternity leave', we have 'parental leave'. Men and women are entitled to the same amount of leave! How amazing for an employer to recognise that both men and women want to spend time off to care for their new-born child. Aurecon has a strong young professional cohort and we embrace everyone; we celebrate diversity and inclusion and it is the foundation of our beliefs.
Graduate, Melbourne
Extremely inclusive culture and flexibility in working. Gender diversity within the team is reflective of recruitment focus to attract and retain women. Great gender diversity in middle/ upper management within my team which may be somewhat uncommon for the industry.
Graduate, Sydney
The company is very diverse and inclusive, gender equality is a large focus and there are policies in-place to ensure this, including generous maternity and paternity leave, and women in senior management.
Graduate, Melbourne
Great chance to work with people from different backgrounds. HR will actively help with the international students (who do not have PR), and equal opportunities to female employees.
Graduate, Sydney
My company has a Diversity and Inclusion Committee and makes diversity and inclusion a priority.
Graduate, Sydney
Very good
Graduate, Brisbane
Aurecon definitely embraces diversity; they even have toilets for transgender individuals.
Graduate, Perth
Part-time to full-time transition opportunities as a part of parental leave. Balance level of women to men recruitment among graduates.
Graduate, Melbourne
Good representation of females, ethnic minorities and LGBTI+ in the company. Clear evidence of promotions being earned on merit and skill. Quite a few students and parents who are allowed to work at 0.8 full time equivalent (FTE) capacity too.
Graduate, Melbourne
What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
As I am not entirely across how our company attracts applicants at all, let alone people from a less privileged background ' It's hard to say.
Graduate, Melbourne
I'm not sure, but there doesn't seem to be any issue with this type of diversity within the business, so they must be doing something!
Graduate, Melbourne
This is not well communicated throughout the business. There may be some strategy in place, but I am not aware of anything specifically.
Graduate, Sydney
It ensures 50-50 split of women and men in graduate/ intern intakes, however I'm not aware that it considers the applicant's privilege or ethnicity. Definitely something for improvement.
Graduate, Melbourne
It's very conscious of hiring and attracting diverse workers.
Graduate, Brisbane
So far, within the office, I would say they're not necessarily opposed to applicants from less privileged backgrounds.
Graduate, Perth
Aurecon is involved with many associations for applicants from less privileged backgrounds.
Graduate, Brisbane
I'm unaware of any specific initiatives that HR would run. Being a large company, and also with offices in all main capital cities of Australia, including smaller cities (in QLD, this includes Brisbane, Gold Coast, Cairns, Townsville, Gladstone, Mackay, Maroochydore, and Toowoomba), I believe some of these offices may run their own initiatives.
