The reward of working for Urbis is that Urbis invests in its people. All staff are given easy access to additional training and resources through our onsite Learning & Development Centre to develop their skills and knowledge and progress their careers. I have benefited greatly from the training Urbis has given me access to. This training has helped me to advance my career, given me new skills and knowledge to draw upon, and has also given me the opportunity to work on some great projects.
Urbis is dedicated to helping you achieve your potential. We get to know you, your professional goals and personal needs so we can tailor a plan that targets your specific objectives.
To support you in achieving your goals, we offer a suite of professional development opportunities from our Learning and Development Centre. Our industry‑recognised centre will create a personalised strategy for advancing your career. You will be provided with on-the-job coaching and mentoring, workshops, online learning and courses from external providers.
Every day, you will have access to experts and a wealth of knowledge unique to Urbis. You will also be working alongside the owners of Urbis, giving you the opportunity to create real change and influence the shape of our organisation and the way we work.
We continuously assess our approach to learning and development to ensure we are providing you with the best skills, knowledge and experience available so you can meet the challenges in your career with confidence.
We help you be the best you can be.
Urbis places great importance on developing staff professionally to maintain its high industry standards and provide growth and promotion opportunities internally. I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with senior staff members on various jobs which I feel has been the single greatest benefit of my time here as it has allowed me to participate closely in the valuation process and understand the reasoning behind the numbers.
We believe your success is our success, so as your career advances, we enhance the specialist support we provide to help you grow.
Our SOAR programme supports the advancement of senior women at Urbis. SOAR was created to address the significant gender imbalance in senior positions all over Australia and aims to change the face of Australian leadership to one that’s more inclusive and diverse.
We also nurture emerging leaders through our bespoke leadership development programme – Evolve. We believe giving young people the best chance to learn and grow today, will lead to better cities and communities tomorrow.
We nurture the best and brightest students.
As a final year Master’s Student at the University of Melbourne the Urbis Student Programme has provided me with invaluable experience alongside my formal learning. Since joining the firm, Urbis has been flexible with my University schedule and the Associate Directors and Directors has always been happy to provide me with support and guidance both in my role and assignments.
Our programme gives bright students the chance to try Urbis on for size, sample the consulting life and kick-start their careers. It also helps us identify the brightest and the best students and offer them a career with us.
Participants work in real time with real clients, so they can learn on the job from industry leaders and make lasting friendships and memories along the way.
We offer flexible hours so students can fit their work around their study commitments.
