Are you ready to advance your career and make a significant impact on our organisation as we realise our ambitions for growth throughout the next ‘decade of water’ in Australia? We are seeking a dynamic and experienced Market Director to play a leadership role in supporting the ongoing success of our Beca HunterH2O Water business. 

About Beca

Beca is one of the largest employee-owned professional services consultancies in the Asia-Pacific region. Our team of 4000-plus is diverse enough to bring a wide range of perspectives and expertise to every client and challenge, creating resourceful, smart solutions from our collective experience and insights. 

We are proudly employee owned and after a century of operation, employee ownership remains key to our future. It underpins our positive, purpose-driven, and growth orientated culture; it sets us apart in our markets and gives meaning to our social contract. We are accountable, we have each other’s backs, we don’t let each other down, and we strive for excellence in everything we do.

As we move into the next phase of our Australian strategy, we continue to focus on key markets, particularly in our priority growth markets – Water, Energy, Defence & National Security. These are all critical areas for Australia, that are expected to experience significant growth. This step change has created exciting new leadership opportunities that will give industry leaders the chance to be involved in solving some of Australia’s biggest challenges.

Our Australian water team has actively supported sustainable water management in the Pacific islands for 20 years and we are positive around continuing to make ongoing difference for our Pacific neighbours. We are also actively working in several remote indigenous communities in Australia to provide safe drinking water.

We are seeking an experienced leader in the Australian water sector to join our team based in any of our Eastern Seaboard offices in Australia. This newly created role is an exciting opportunity to make a significant impact in one of Beca Australia’s priority growth markets.

  • Work closely with the marketing team to enhance the organisations brand presence within the Water sector. This includes leveraging marketing initiatives, thought leadership, and targeted campaigns to enhance Beca’s position as a leader in the market.
