The Johnstaff story

At Johnstaff, we are committed to attracting, developing, exciting and retaining exceptional people. With 250+ staff, we're an employee-owned business that's big enough to attract iconic projects and professionals who are leaders in their fields, but small enough to remain genuine and unpretentious. We're one Johnstaff.

Our goal is simple: to help Australian and New Zealand businesses and government agencies achieve the best solutions for their business or infrastructure investment needs.

Johnstaff is a diverse management and delivery practice. We act as advisors, project managers and cost managers for both public and private sector clients. Our approach is focused on providing commercially viable, value-enhancing solutions to our clients’ business, project and investment needs. We have a strong appreciation that our clients’ investment solutions are not always asset solutions, but are often integrated business opportunity initiatives.

In the past five years, we have delivered projects and infrastructure worth more than $57 billion. We’re talking about significant projects – hospitals, roads, universities, transport hubs, schools and prisons. We’ve worked on iconic projects throughout Australia and New Zealand – like Melbourne’s Federation Square, Sydney’s Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct, Monash University’s New Horizons Research Centre, Chatswood Education Precinct, Western Australia’s Alfred Cove Care Community, the National Disability Insurance Agency headquarters in Geelong, Sydney’s West Connex, Hopkins Correctional Centre at Ararat, AstraZeneca Respules12-15 in Sydney, Melbourne’s Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre and James Cook University’s Discovery Rise Clinical Practice Building.

Our culture

We’re professional, genuine and unpretentious. We think outside the square to find solutions that work. We don’t pull precedent off the shelf and call it a job done.

We’re looking for passionate, talented and collaborative individuals who won’t be afraid to tell us if they think there is a better way to meet our clients’ goals.

Our Graduate Program

Johnstaff’s Project Management Graduate program is open to Building & Construction, Project Management, Civil Engineering & Architecture students and runs for 12 months in an office-based role.

The program is designed so that graduates get real exposure to the client-side across multiple industries – including the health, education/research, aged care, justice, transport, commercial, retail and pharmaceutical sectors.

  • Cost management and the processes involved in controlling project costs.
  • Project procurement, including consultant engagement.
