Stories from our team
Having built up my experience in sustainable design, I now help guide our teams to design and deliver better long-term outcomes.
Our practice is made up of a lot of talented individuals who work closely in project teams and become like family. The culture here is a unique mix of creative excellence, professionalism and adventurousness. These elements come together in different ways across projects, social gatherings and everyday life."
Senior Associate, Sydney
I transferred from Auckland to Sydney, where there was the chance to work on larger projects in a more intimate ‘family’ environment, and to contribute to the culture and growth of the studio.
I’ve made lifelong friendships at Warren and Mahoney. You get to work alongside extremely talented and experienced people – some of the most generous with their time and knowledge that I’ve met."
We’re very focused on planning and resourcing projects well and sharing workload across studios. We all muck in and help our colleagues. Plus the reward is working on incredible projects – the projects of your life.
As a leader now, I have regular one-on-one catchups with my team, and they know they can come to me with any issues. I look for opportunities for them to work across our ‘one studio’ network, and position them to take these."
In my seven years here I’ve been able to work on exciting and challenging projects. I’ve been promoted to Senior Technician and now, with excellent mentoring and support, I’m on the path to becoming registered as an Architect.
Warren and Mahoney has also provided me with amazing workplace flexibility, with opportunities to start and finish early and work from home to tie in with my family commitments."
Associate Principal, Queenstown
I’ve had the opportunity to step out of my previous design specialism – food and beverage – to become a sector lead in hotels and tourism. It’s been great for my career development to broaden my experience like this in a new area.
Technology like screen sharing allows us to work on documents alongside colleagues in real time. I’m based in Queenstown and have been working on a project in Auckland. I’m still connected and just as productive as if we were in a room together."
The people are what I enjoy most about working here. Warren and Mahoney has managed to bring together such great people in every type of role. I’ve made lifelong friends while I’ve worked here.”
What I enjoy most about working at W+M of course always comes down to the people and the projects. There is a strong culture of creativity and excellence. As an organisation, we undoubtedly work hard, and we strive to achieve our best and excel at every project and task we undertake. With this culture comes a responsibility that we care and support one another. There is a great comradery in our practice and a lot of respect. It really is a wonderful, challenging, exciting and supportive place to work and grow as a creative.
A GREAT PLACE TO WORK
We have seven beautiful, high-tech studios, all in great locations. Our active social culture includes sports teams, Friday drinks and plenty of other opportunities to get to know your colleagues.
ASSISTANCE TO THRIVE
We pay your KiwiSaver employer contribution on top of your salary, offer discounted medical insurance and have an employee assistance programme if you or your family are in difficulty. Plus all the little things – great coffee, fresh fruit, morning and afternoon snacks – that perk up your day.
We want all our people to continuously learn and grow. You’ll get regular on-the-job feedback, plus formal Career Conversations twice a year. We offer mentoring and training programmes for both soft and technical skills, and pay for all our registered architects to attend their National Institute's annual conference.
REWARDS AND RECOGNITION
Done something amazing? We like to recognise outstanding performance in the moment with valued rewards – for example, restaurant vouchers, or a weekend away. We also acknowledge loyalty through our long-service award programme.
