We’re lucky enough to work on some of the country’s most exciting and complex projects, with an ever-expanding client network.  Beyond our own walls, we’re active members of the wider engineering community, attending and presenting at national and global engineering conferences, as well as contributing to technical industry committees.

Hard work's a big part of what's got us where we are today, but it's not the final word. At Holmes Consulting, we have a vibrant, fun culture. If sport is your thing, you can join our touch, indoor netball, or football teams. Bootcamps, ski and cycle trips are also on the menu if you want to get involved, and we’ve got a range of social functions throughout the year if they take your fancy.  We’re a friendly, relaxed team that loves getting stuck into great projects, with plenty of fun and good times along the way.

Holmes people are encouraged to dream big and empowered to achieve their goals in an environment where we recognise and value diversity.
