Our network connects people across five continents and we are proud to be a multicultural and diverse firm. We respect cultural and individual differences – indeed we view these differences as an advantage in understanding the needs of our clients and contributing to their success. We are proud to operate in regional offices, close to our clients and communities, with talented local people who share their unique local knowledge.

To support the sharing of knowledge, our people have opportunities to work in other offices, both locally and internationally, on long and short-term assignments. A range of relocation and cultural awareness support is provided to our people and their families.

Supporting diversity

GHD is firmly committed to equal opportunity in the workplace. We respect the needs and situations of our people. With the number of women in our profession increasing, GHD continues to implement initiatives that aim to meet the needs of our female employees and people with family/caring responsibilities.

A significant innovation has been the establishment of the Women in GHD forum, which raises the profile of women and their contribution to the firm and fosters networks among our female team members. GHD also provides its people with a range of flexible work programs and family-friendly practices.

Graduates

GHD aims to build and develop the GHD network for the future, and we are therefore committed to our graduate recruitment program. We aim to attract and develop the most talented graduates across our broad range of services. Our program has grown significantly over the past decade and provides a range of development initiatives that assist young professionals to build a rewarding career at GHD.
