Project Director


For more than six decades, across New Zealand and the world, Holmes Consulting has led the engineering industry in invention, creativity and quality.

Holmes is very open to flexible working. If you’re looking to fit work around your life, or you’d just like to explore the possibility of a flexible working arrangement, we’d love to hear from you.

We’ve got 60 years of history delivering high-profile projects in New Zealand and beyond. Working with Holmes, you’ll have the opportunity to lend your Project Director skills to ground-breaking projects like Auckland Airport, the new Dunedin Hospital, Commercial Bay, or the Christ Church Cathedral—and many other challenging and exciting developments. We work on the largest developments in the market and the most gravity-defying artistic visions—and everything in between—so we’ve got the projects to match your career ambitions.
  
This role will see you developing and maintaining positive and productive client relationships, using your stakeholder management skills to engage your clients, project partners and your own project team. You’ll be an expert in understanding and articulating design visions, goals and key design deliverables—and working with your clients to find the best path forward. You’ll have a strong understanding of the commercials, with a proven track record delivering customers exceptional value, at the same time as ensuring Holmes gets the reward and credit great work deserves. You’ll provide day-to-day technical leadership, support and guidance to your own teams, coaching and mentoring our engineers to improve their skills and deliver excellence.
  
You’ll have an approach that epitomises the commitment to design, technical quality and innovation that defines Holmes. With the advanced structural engineering skills to manage some of the most challenging engineering projects on offer, you’ll be a technical expert with proven experience delivering large and complex projects. Combined with excellent communication skills, you’ll be creative, solutions-focused and adept at managing many elements and contributors to find the most efficient path forward.
  
In return, you’ll be working with and leading some of New Zealand's best engineers—people who continue to lead innovation and advancement in our country and beyond. Leading teams of talented and committed people, you’ll have the chance to push your own skills forward on the many challenging and exciting projects Holmes is lucky enough to deliver.
 
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.
