  • Full Time
  • All locations
Have you considered a career in structural drafting? Are you interested in buildings, bridges and design? Are you in your final year of your NZ Diploma in Architecture (NZ DipArch) and ready to enter the workforce?
For over 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. Our expert drafters have played a huge part in our success.
We accept a handful of great Drafting Cadets each year to kick-start their structural drafting career in one of our five Holmes Consulting offices in New Zealand (Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown). It’s a fantastic opportunity for you to work alongside Senior Drafters and Engineers on exciting live projects, bringing our engineering concepts to life. You’ll be working with advanced software like REVIT, creating accurate, compelling drawings that are vital in guiding design and construction.
We don’t expect you to know everything right off the bat—instead, you’ll be learning alongside an experienced Senior Drafter and given all the tools you need to succeed. Along the way, you’ll ask questions, visit sites, contribute to team meetings, and ultimately grow your skills from day one. You’ll have plenty of fun working with positive, motivated people who love delivering exceptional projects. Our drafting team is at the forefront of the industry, working on great projects nationwide, including the Wellington Town Hall, Aotea Square (Auckland), and the Christ Church Cathedral (Christchurch).
With strong academic results, great candidates will be sticklers for detail, able to manage their time well and step up to deadlines. In addition, you’ll need to have strong communication skills and an appetite to learn. An added bonus would be having a particular interest in technology or being skilled in computer programming. The world is changing at a fast rate and we want to keep up with it!
We’ll provide you a great place to work as part of a fun and supportive team, with excellent learning and career progression—and a chance to work on some of the country’s most exciting projects.
