Holmes Consulting LP

Applications are now open for Graduate Structural Engineers to start in early 2022.

  • Work alongside forward-thinking structural engineers and technical specialists
  • Work in a dynamic, exciting environment
  • Graduate roles available in our Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch
We're looking for the next generation of Holmes Engineers. If you're completing your final year of study towards a BE (Hons) in Civil Engineering and are passionate about specialising in structural engineering—then we'd love to hear from you.

Our graduate engineer roles are all about:
  • getting talented new people working with proven experts in the field—learning from the best on exciting, high-profile projects.
  • working alongside forward-thinking structural engineers and technical specialists on meaningful design and detailing work; attending site visits and gaining exposure to complex and interesting engineering challenges.
  • working in a dynamic, exciting environment on live projects, with all the support, mentoring and infrastructure to succeed.
  • taking part in our very own specially designed graduate programme, Holmes University, by attending regular tech sessions to help build your technical skills to back-up classroom theory, and—after the work's done—we're never afraid to have a good time.
Across the country we've got touch and indoor netball teams, pub quiz groups, running groups and boot camps. There are plenty of golfers around the place, lots of trampers, and several keen fishermen and women. We have skiing and cycling trips each year, and an inter-office challenge trophy for our 'funtech' challenges. Our Social Good team regularly organises activities that benefit the community, like volunteering at Habitat for Humanity or collecting for the City Mission. On Friday nights you'll find a good group of people sharing stories from the week in our staff areas, with a couple of drinks on offer if you're so inclined. It's an unashamedly high-performance culture, but we're always up for a laugh.

If this sounds like the culture for you, and you’re ready to work with some of the best in the business, we'd love to hear from you. Select 'apply now' with your CV, academic transcript and cover letter telling us a bit about yourself. We have graduate roles available in our Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch offices. If you’re open to working at any of our office locations, just let us know the places you would like to work in order from your most desired to least desired location.

“Holmes is full of incredibly bright, driven and hard-working individuals, and has a culture of fun and camaraderie. The interesting and iconic projects that come our way are an added bonus, and the more I learn, the more I realise how much room there is to continue learning and growing beyond uni. Thankfully, there’s plenty of support at Holmes to help facilitate that learning.” Chloe Lau —Graduate Engineer.
