Porter Davis Careers

About Porter Davis

Porter Davis is a building company, right? Yes we are, but we’re also so much more.

We’re a group of passionate and dedicated professionals who love to share ideas, introduce better and innovative ways of working and ensure that our customer’s experience in building their dream home is amazing.

We’re bold, we’re forward-thinking and we constantly look to set the pace in how we deliver our services and products.

From the very latest technologies and applications, to our amazing work home in the Docklands we are focused on also respecting the career aspirations of our people – we’re working collaboratively to share knowledge and experience, we’re working remotely to support work/life balance and when we’re not working we’re shooting pool, riding bikes, playing tennis, refining our yoga techniques or studying through our Porter Davis University.

From Sales and Marketing and Design and Construction through to Customer Service, Finance and IT we’ve got every career opportunity covered.

With us, the options are endless as we want each and every team member to thrive and enjoy working in a culture which promotes and celebrates the notion of dreaming bigger.

  • A great team environment that takes pride in their work with lots of support
  • Competitive rates of pay and the best and reliable payment terms in the industry
  • Long term employment

Our journey from Good to Great

Work with us

So what’s it like to work here? Well we think it’s pretty special.

We have an incredible office in the heart of the city supporting activity based working – we’re now a very mobile workforce who can choose different work zones designed for either collaboration, meetings, individual projects or even contemplation.

We have a culture built around working as a team and our work home design, a central hub for collaboration, means we’re forging new relationships every day.

We have a range of programs and initiatives to support ongoing personal and professional development – from mentoring & leadership development to study trips and secondments.

And we’re by no means finished there……

But rather than just take our word for it, why not listen to one of our Construction Supervisors about what’s it’s like working here? We think you’ll be inspired.
