Beckett played the role of PC Mike Jarvis in The Bill for five years. He later played Dr Matt Ramsden in Coronation Street from 2000 to 2002, reprising the role in 2006. Discussing the character and the possibility of a return, Beckett said: "People were really protective of Ashley, and very anti the child-stealing doctor. I don't know about returning to Corrie again, but as long as Ashley is in the show there is a potential kidnap plot." But as the character of Ashley has now been written out with the rest of his on-screen family to follow shortly the return of Dr. Ramsden seems unlikely.

His other television credits include Robin Hood, Doctors and Casualty. In 2006, he guest starred as Richard III in the Doctor Who audio drama The Kingmaker.

Beckett's theatre work includes the original productions of the Alan Ayckbourn plays Drowning on Dry Land and Private Fears in Public Places, Around the World in Eighty Days, The Ghost Train, Murder with Love, Walk Hard, The Business of Murder, The Late Edwina Black and Absurd Person Singular. He has also appeared in pantomime.

Beckett plays Prospero in The Tempest for the 2017 open air Stafford Festival Shakespeare 22 June-8 July 2017.
