Veterans at John Holland
Our Social inclusion program seeks to break the cycle of poverty and unemployment by creating jobs and training for people who have traditionally faced barriers to employment, including veterans, asylum seekers & refugees, Indigenous Australians and people with a disability.
In 2020, we spent more than $10 million with social enterprise organisation such as Veterans in Construction. This organisation opens the door for veterans to work in construction - an industry well suited to their skills and physical capability.
We have had approx. 20 veterans working on our sites, including the West Gate Tunnel and the Melbourne Metro Tunnel projects, with plans to extend this partnership to other John Holland sites around Australia.
