Life at McDonald Jones Homes

People are at the heart of everything we do

McDonald Jones is recognised as an industry leader, setting the benchmark in innovation and quality craftsmanship in architecturally designed, residential homes. As a company, we strive for big things because we believe that we can achieve big things for our customers.

We have grown from a small home building business based out of the Hunter with less than 20 staff, to an award-winning, leading home builder creating the dream homes of Australian families throughout rural and metropolitan NSW, Canberra and surrounding regions, and Southeast QLD. Our growing suite of architecturally designed homes cater to diverse needs, budgets, locations, lifestyles and desires.

Our success and longevity is no accident – we put it down to one great team.

Our team is now made up of more than 380 people with diverse backgrounds, a range of skills, many inspiring ideas and the talent, loyalty and energy to turn our vision into a reality. We have many staff who have been with us since the very beginning, many who have shared years with us, and many who have joined us recently, however we all share the same love for a cleverly designed and well-built home and exceptional customer service.

We do what we can to help people in need

McDonald Jones has a proud history of giving back to the communities across our building footprint. We are about so much more than realising the dreams of Australian families through bricks and mortar; we are committed to making a life-changing difference through our community efforts so that we can help families discover a better, brighter future.

We have established a registered charity, the McDonald Jones Foundation, which is used as a vehicle to distribute much needed funds to a variety of causes across NSW, the ACT and QLD. We are passionate and feel a sense of responsibility to the communities that have wholeheartedly supported and welcomed us, and for the families that have chosen us as their building partner, and are grateful to be able to provide them with the opportunities that will help improve their life and education outcomes.

Our staff play a pivotal role in the direction and activities of our Charitable Foundation, from helping to select the causes we support, to participating and supporting external and internal fundraising events, including our annual Hunter and Sydney Trade Shows, every member of the team makes a real difference in the community.
