About Us

We are committed to being an Employer of Choice. Looking after our employees means that we are dedicated to providing a safe workplace, innovative training, career development opportunities and a supportive culture.

We are currently involved in delivering many of Australia’s largest infrastructure projects, as well as significant property and urban renewal projects. Our operations span a range of diverse sectors and disciplines all around Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. Working with us, there are often opportunities to take on new roles and build on your skills. At John Holland, we are proud of our ability to offer people roles in a huge variety of areas, as well as the ability to transfer between a range of competencies, specialisation and sectors both on site and in support positions.

Whatever we face, the heart of what we do is creating people-centred solutions to complex challenges and opportunities. We think deeply about what we do and how it affects communities. We push boundaries and innovate, gain trust through our actions and whatever the project, we’re in it for the long, long term.

Our purpose

We are passionate about transforming lives. By finding people-centred solutions to complex challenges and opportunities, we make communities more connected, easier to move around and better to live in. As one of our nation’s leading property and infrastructure companies, we pride ourselves on making a real difference to people’s lives across a diverse range of sectors such as transport, rail, health and education. For us, it’s not about what we do, but why we do it and who will benefit.
