A meaningful career

We believe in hiring the person and not the qualifications because the right person will achieve more and go farther than any set of qualifications can ever predict. We do our best to find the right people and give them a place where they are trusted to lead, free to decide the best way to do things, and properly recognized for their work.

We all want to love it here enough to stay until retirement. To make sure that happens, almost everything we do is geared towards building a culture that delivers long-lasting and meaningful careers. 

This is why EllisDon will be your next and last career move

The people of EllisDon are what differentiates us from our competitors, and will continue to be the driving force of our entrepreneurial enthusiasm for years to come. This is why it's essential that we continuously improve, learn and evolve. 

We have a dedicated Talent Development Team, whose sole focus is to enable you to be the best at what you love doing - to be recognized both internally and externally as experts in your field.

Internally you have an opportunity to learn and develop your career through two streams:

  1. SkillED (technical skills) - to create transferable technical abilities that reflect EllisDon's best practices. 
  2. EmpowerED (leadership skills) - to provide practical and leadership strategies for all types of leaders.
