Marketing and Project Specialist (8 month contract)

Holmes Consulting LP

You'll be a big part of advancing our great Holmes brand, taking charge of our marketing across the mix.

  • Play a big part in advancing our great Holmes Brand.
  • Social, close-knit, high-performing team.
  • Fantastic location in the heart of the Viaduct Harbour.
For more than six decades, Holmes Consulting has led the engineering industry in invention, creativity and quality. During that time, we’ve worked right across New Zealand and the world, delivering premium structural and civil solutions to thousands of landmark projects. With five offices in New Zealand, an office in the Netherlands and bases in Australia and the USA, we’ve got the horsepower and experience to handle the most challenging design projects anywhere in the world.

In this role you’ll play a big part in advancing our great Holmes brand, taking charge of our marketing across the mix. You’ll promote our key messages across our website and social media, respond to RFPs, manage award entries, create compelling content and take hold of key projects across our Marketing and Customer areas. As you go, you’ll look for opportunities to improve the way we’re doing things and find new ways to boost Holmes’ brand presence. You’ll be working with a very diverse range of internal stakeholders, working to understand what people need and want—and helping them to make the right choices for Holmes and the Holmes brand.

To be successful in this role, you’ll have experience in a marketing role and experience with social media, website management and copy writing. Strong writing skills and the ability to translate technical information into simple language will be a major advantage.  If you also have experience with bid preparation, that’s an added bonus! Confident and self-sustaining, with the ability to crack on with things under your own steam, you’ll also be great at influencing and convincing people, and able to cope with shifting parameters and expectations. You’ll be great at teamwork, and capable of operating in a structure where autonomy and freedom trump structure and hierarchy.

In return, you’ll be part of a vibrant culture. We celebrate and reward successes, we nurture career development, and we always look for opportunities to make our work environment more motivating and inspirational for our people. To find out more about Life@Holmes, go to
