Our cultureJohn Holland

Our culture

For us, culture starts with care. Caring deeply about people like you, what you want to achieve and supporting your journey through life.

John Holland has a certain spirit. It’s a belief in pulling together to create things we can all be proud of.

It’s an understanding that if we want to be the best, we need to be genuinely committed to supporting people as individuals. 

Here, passion and professionalism go hand-in-hand. We often joke that our brand is red because it runs through our veins. It’s not just a job, it’s a true calling to do all we can to improve people’s lives, the environment and society around us. And that includes you.


Four pillars support our culture.

Be yourself

Construction no longer looks like it used to. Today, it’s for people of all different backgrounds and preferences. It’s about knowing that your uniqueness is what makes you special. We encourage people to bring their whole selves to work. And we support them in balancing their personal responsibilities, as well as their physical and mental wellbeing, with the demands of their job.

Grow with us

We believe people never stop growing. It’s our job to partner with you and pave the way for your success. That’s why you’ll be part of an active development program, with goals set along the way. With many of Australia’s largest projects under our care, there’s so much to learn and so many opportunities to build your career.

Be rewarded

It goes without saying that you’ll be well-remunerated at John Holland. But that’s only the start of the benefits. From generous parental leave, to flexible working, wellbeing, and relationship support; to professional memberships and discounts on things like vehicles, insurance, tech and more. We're an industry leader in reward and recognition.

Make an impact

The work we do is vital. How we do it also counts. That’s why we’re investing in sustainability, social impact, Indigenous opportunity, and much more. If you want to get out into the community and make a difference, this is the place to do it. We offer opportunities to work with social enterprises, support for local schools, community groups, not-for-profits, and artists. If you’re passionate about a cause, we’ll help translate that passion into action. You can also join our employee networks as a way of making a difference including: First Nations, Celebrate Women, PRIDE, and GROW.
Our culture


John Holland pays respect to the Traditional Owners and Custodiams of the land on which we work and live, and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations peoples today.
