Beca

No-one knows New Zealand like Beca

2020 saw New Zealand’s essentially lock its borders. For the engineering sector that meant trouble. ACE reports that their members expect to hire around 2100 new staff members over the next 12 months. This includes new positions as well as replacing attrition.

CHALLENGE

Like many engineering consultancies upon signs of recovery, Beca were faced with resourcing challenges. Coupled with this, the Government had launched a record investment programme into rail and infrastructure. While this seemed to be a solution, New Zealand’s historic under investment in rail, and transport meant many of the skills we needed here, lived – well, there in the UK. The only path to resourcing in these skills was to attract expats.

SOLUTION

We created a story that focused on the purpose, versus the project. The purpose and reason to come home, to someone who knows home, vs. the project you will be working on. Subsequent videos focused on various projects, and needs in rail and other key areas, but step one’s goal was to connect emotionally. This was delivered in a powerful emotive video, voiced directly from the NZ MD, and taken through socials, programmatic and sponsored content, all leading to a landing page reinforcing the story. By making the content engaging and interesting, it was received by the Beca business and ELT well and shared. The result speak for themselves.
