John Holland is up for the challenge of transforming lives.


From Parliament House to the Alice to Darwin Rail Link, from the MCG’s Great Southern Stand to Sydney Metro, we’ve had a hand in the Australia we all know today. We are currently involved in delivering all of Australia’s largest infrastructure projects. 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.


We work hard to attract and retain the best employees, and we provide opportunities for rich career experiences, and a strong framework for on-going career development.


We are committed to building, valuing and promoting diversity and inclusiveness across John Holland.
