Overview of Holden

The history of Holden dates back to 1856 in South Australia, the company produced a variety of different products until later becoming the exclusive importer of General Motors products. Holden consists of our Port Melbourne headquarters, the epicentre of our operations, our Proving Ground facility, one of the few of its kind in Australia where our vehicles undergo rigorous testing to ensure they are ready for Australia’s unique driving conditions, and our dealer network, over 200 representatives delivering our vehicles and services to Australia.

Where We’re Going

For decades, Holden has been an iconic part of Australian life. Now, we’re focusing on shaping an even brighter future so existing fans – and a whole new generation of drivers – can come with us. 2017 marks a significant time for Holden as we begin our exciting transition to a national sales company. Holden will leverage GM’s global portfolio to provide the best cars for the Australian market. Our commitment to providing Australians with a fantastic product and exceptional service is stronger than ever.

At Holden, we believe we have the culture necessary to succeed in this transition. Our people are bright, motivated and passionate about our brand. If you feel that you could be a part of our team, we would love for you to come on our journey.

Key Points

1. Careers

As we move into a new era of operations we are looking for talented individuals in a variety of areas of the business such as sales, marketing, finance, design and engineering.

One of the ways we offer people to experience our business is through our internship program. Our Internship Program is offered to students from all universities across a variety of different streams. Academic talent is not the defining factor of successful applicants and we look for a broad range of skills and experiences.

We’ve all heard the horror stories about internships making coffee and being stuck on dull filing assignments. You won’t get that here at Holden. From day one, you’ll be working on real projects with experienced teams – gaining invaluable exposure to the inner workings of a global business, and learning from real-world situations.

The program runs for 12-months, and yes, it’s a paid position. You’ll be integrated into our team including senior leaders and allocated a role specific to your goals and unique strengths.

2. Developing our people

Cultural Diversity

We talk a lot about possibilities at Holden. What can we do better? How can we think bigger? Or be more relevant and engaging with our products, service and culture? And most of all, what can we do to make sure Holden is a great brand that all Australian’s can relate to?

Our different nationalities, viewpoints, languages, experience levels and life stories reflect that of contemporary Australia. This means we’re well placed to listen and learn, so we can earn our place as Australia’s most iconic car company.

In one sense, Holden is a microcosm of Australia – one of the most diverse nations in the world. And that’s why we’re so passionate about things like gender parity, LGBT+ rights, and Indigenous, cross-generational and disability issues.

People are the key to our success at Holden, that’s why we offer a culture that is inclusive, offering new opportunities and career pathways to all. That means creating a workplace in which women are supported, empowered and encouraged to not only succeed, but to define for themselves exactly what success looks like – in our offices, our plants and our dealerships.
