Who We Are

In 2015, Grant McWhirter decided to move from Scotland to Australia. He spent two years working in a variety of sectors throughout Melbourne, identifying digital transformation strategies tailored to each business. Once the solutions had been implemented and results were showing; Grant realised that there was an opportunity to add real value to businesses and government organisations. At the start of 2017, Grant launched Digital First through the desire to help businesses utilize modern digital technology across all business functions. It was a one man driven company, located in the heart of Melbourne's CBD. Today, the company continues to grow as Grant brings on more expertise into his team and working with a range of clients enables a diverse number of services offered.  Digital First provides consultancy and implements change in organisations who are moving operations into new technology platforms. Customer focus, innovation and optimization are at the forefront of the services offered. Digital First understands that each business is different and extra care is needed to succeed.


We intentionally base ourselves in a communal building in Melbourne and so we are surrounded by many other start-ups. Digital First enjoy collaborating with other businesses and we also love to socialise, so this working environment is perfect.  



Digital First understand that creating a diverse team of talented individuals is critical to creating the best solutions for our Clients. We ensure that our team resonates a diverse and inclusive culture.



We strongly believe in promoting education, supporting local charities and helping social economy enterprises. We want to give back to the community and contribute to a better future for all.



We are a digital first organisation (pardon the pun) therefore we believe in going fully digital as it reduces our carbon footprint. Our team supports the City of Melbourne’s Environmental Sustainability Initiatives by going paperless, recycling, power saving, using resources efficiently and so much more!
