Every day, our people have responsibilities that involve interacting with Country. It’s important to us that each exchange is purposeful and generating social value for Australia’s Traditional Owners.
Our work stretches across a vast geographic area, touching diverse First Nations communities from the inner city to some of the most remote parts of the nation.
This places us in a unique position to work with and learn from the wide range of expertise and knowledge that First Nation’s people and businesses have to offer. It also enables us to give back to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and leaving a positive legacy for future generations.
John Holland has developed an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan to map a pathway to walk alongside Traditional Owners to foster self-determination and economic empowerment.
A particular focus is providing employment opportunities in-house and on our projects and through our choice of subcontractors. We offer First Nations apprenticeships, scholarships, sponsorships and professional development for our people – including accredited training and on-the-job training.
