Design your Legacy with BCD
As an intern we want your summer with us to be all about professional and personal growth. Here at BCD we have a commitment to developing well rounded property professionals. This starts by working alongside the budding consultants of the future to grow a well rounded skillset that will have a positive impact on our industry.
We achieve this by getting you involved in meaningful projects, some of which will take you out of your comfort zone from the very first week. Our well established buddy system means you will have someone to help you throughout the summer so that the challenges you might be facing turn into positive wins for you.
Our company values are woven into how we approach our intern program, with a real focus being placed on team camaraderie. The peers sitting alongside you during your summer with us will be great connections to have as you continue to grow your career within the industry.
As a Graduate at BCD Group you can expect to get out of the experience just as much as you put in. From day one you will be supported by the team to develop a strong foundation of consulting skills that will see you grow into a well rounded property professional.
We pride ourselves on being able to nurture Graduates into well respected consultants as demonstrated by the continued success our earlier Graduates are having. Many go on to be highly successful Project Managers and three out of five current Office Managers initially joined the company as a Grad.
Feng Cao - Graduate Fire Engineer
"BCD has a fabulous work environment, where people enjoy being part of and give you many opportunities to grow and learn new skills related to their line of work.
The best part of my experience at BCD is that people truly care about you as a person and about your professional growth. The most valuable thing I have learned at BCD is never to be afraid to ask questions."
Ruther Orbe - Graduate Civil Design Engineer
"My experience at BCD has been great. I’ve been able to bring in the skills I developed during my university studies and further enhance it.
Since the beginning, I have been surrounded by like-minded individuals who educate, support and back me up as I progress and develop in my engineering career.
BCD is not only focused on delivering the best work, but an awesome work-to-life balance is also highly encouraged within the work culture.
The most valuable experience I’ve learned at BCD is that anyone in the workplace is more than happy to support you towards your goals and that’s how you’ll feel welcome."
Eliza Swainson - Draughting Intern
"My experience with BCD has been fantastic so far, it has been such an amazing opportunity for me to gain experience in the draughting field and learn from my highly skilled, helpful peers.There are so many great things BCD Group has to offer. I have really enjoyed being part of a supportive, close-knit team and participating in the social activities organised by the HR team. I have also really enjoyed getting out to site to see our projects and meeting the many trades involved.
I've learned that develop a good understanding of how each structure goes together and sketching is your best friend."
