Angela Greenlees

Angela Greenlees

Lendlease Graduate Program Stream

Engineering (Site Engineer, OH2Ku)

Degree and University

Bachelor Civil Engineering with Architecture, UNSW

Were you a member of any university societies?

Yes – CEVSOC (Civil and Environmental Engineering Society) and WIESOC (Women in Engineering Society)

What have you found to be your most valuable learning opportunity since joining Lendlease? (either on the job or a formal course)

I truly feel like I’m learning every day on the job, but the Influencing Skills Training session that we did as part of the structured grad training program was the most valuable for me. I’m still developing my influencing skills and it’s a useful talent to have under your belt.

Have you faced a situation where you have been asked to work on something that you were not particularly looking forward to, but it ended up being a valuable learning experience?

I’ve never had a negative outlook on a situation before it began – I find that your attitude going into a task influences the work that you do. I was nervous about my presentation, but a big part of the learning experience was realising that I had built up a huge support network in my project team. Everyone was so willing to help me along the way, and they were all proud of me afterwards!

What have you enjoyed most about working at Lendlease?

The culture onsite and within Lendlease is one of support. Everyone here wants to see you succeed and we all want to share in your success!

What is the most challenging task you have faced since joining Lendlease?

Learning how to manage stakeholders in a continuous cycle. Every time you have a disagreement or a differing view you should be thinking in long term time frames. Every conversation that you have will influence the outcome of future negotiations.

What advice would you give to students considering applying for the Lendlease graduate program this year?

Apply! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. It’s a fantastic program and a great company to work for.


Johnny Incampo

Johnny Incampo

Lendlease Graduate Program Stream

Property Development

Degree and University

Bachelor Property Development and Real Estate - Griffith University

What made you decide to accept a graduate role with Lendlease and to choose the particular program stream?

I was attracted to Lendlease being such a diverse organisation and I believed that career growth and opportunities for various experiences would be made available as a graduate. 

I chose Property Development as I could see an opportunity to add value to a development in managing the design and outcome to ensure if benefits the users and other key stakeholders for generations to come. The opportunity to leave a legacy behind motivates me to deliver the best outcome/s.

What does a typical day look like for you? (Be realistic – are you onsite/in the office early? Is your role varied?)

I attend site once a week with the chance to be involved on the ground with the construction teams. The balance of the week I am in the office, attending meetings and often at consultant’s offices or dealing with external stakeholders i.e Government departments. Often, I am onsite for inspections during installations of key items or to conduct safety assurance visits.

What work have you been most proud of since joining Lendlease?

Delivering a pitch to the Lendlease Innovation Committee for an idea that I devised and delivered the first phase of a business plan for. The innovation could see our project benefit for years to come.

What have you found to be your most valuable learning opportunity since joining Lendlease? (either on the job or a formal course)

I had the opportunity to assist with coordinating a formal design competition to find an Urban Designer/Master Planner to develop the proposed Town Centre for a project I was working on. Similar to a tender process I learnt valuable aspects of placemaking, true urban design and considerations for end users in the developments we establish.

What advice would you give to students considering applying for the Lendlease graduate program this year?

If you enjoy working as part of a team and aspire to be involved in delivering great outcomes for users of developments and in addition would love to work in a proactive, positive and flexible work environment, then don’t wait apply now.


Magdalen Corr

Magdalen Corr

Lendlease Graduate Program Stream

Building

Degree and University

Bachelor of Construction Project Management UTS

Were you a member of any university societies?

I competed at five University Games for the UTS Women’s Football Team.

What made you decide to accept a graduate role with Lendlease and to choose the particular program stream?

I chose Lendlease not only for the exciting projects but the social conscience the company operates with. The choice to work in the building business was easy for me as I knew I wanted onsite exposure to compliment my studies (Bachelor of Construction Project Management). I did not feel a great deal of pressure however when selecting my program stream because I knew that Lendlease would guide me through the process to ensure I found the right fit.

What work have you been most proud of since joining Lendlease?

Every day is different for me and that’s one of the reasons why I love my job so much. I’m onsite early and working with Lendlease site management and subcontractors to achieve the days tasks. Then it’s back in the office planning and working with consultants to ensure we are all working towards the same objectives. The key focus areas for my role include managing quality, budget, time/programme and safety.

What work have you been most proud of since joining Lendlease?

Though there have been a lot of very proud personal moments, for example presenting to the Lendlease board, I believe the thing that has given me the most pride and satisfaction was being a part of a team who completes a project on time, on budget, safely and that is of a superior quality. Walking around Sydney now I can point out a few buildings to family and friends and say that I was a part of the team who built that. It’s a great feeling.

What have you found to be your most valuable learning opportunity since joining Lendlease? (either on the job or a formal course)

I have been very lucky to have had a great deal of varied opportunities during my time here at Lendlease. I worked on the first Frank Ghery designed building in Australia, attended Forum15 (Lendlease’s global employee workshop) and presented to the Lendlease board.

Though the most valuable learning opportunity for me is in my day to day work. I have a fantastic manager and a great team who support my learning and development. They give me the opportunity to test my skills in tackling problems while supporting me through it.

What advice would you give to students considering applying for the Lendlease graduate program this year?

I would highly recommend applying for the Lendlease Graduate Program. I was attracted to Lendlease because of the large scale projects and opportunities but I stayed because of its people and culture. There is no better place for graduates in this industry.


Samantha Singh

Samantha Singh

Lendlease Graduate Program Stream:

Services

Degree and University:

Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering, Griffith University

Were you a member of any university societies?

Griffith Honours College, Golden Key Society, PASS (Peer Assisted Study Session) Mentoring and Treasurer of Camping Boating and Fishing Club.

What made you decide to accept a graduate role with Lendlease and to choose the particular program stream?

There were multiple reasons why I chose to accept Lendlease’s Graduate Program over other companies. For me starting my career with an Australian company was important. I felt they would have the same values and ethics as myself while focusing on the development and growth of my home country. Although Lendlease as a company was extremely appealing due to their significant growth internationally within the last few years, it was their two year Graduate Program that offered the greatest appeal. Coming out of university I didn’t feel I had experience in industries to know what field I wanted to specialise in. Therefore, the opportunity to take two twelve month rotations across diverse projects provides me with the exposure and development any engineer would need entering the industry.

What work have you been most proud of since joining Lendlease?

Since joining Lendlease I am most proud of the preconstruction design review process I created. Prior to starting on the NBN project I had no experience in telecommunications. However, during my time I have development an in-depth knowledge of the technology and was solely responsible for reviewing the designs prior to construction. When it became time for me to rotate to my next project I established a preconstruction review process that was implemented into the preconstruction phase of the project. I am most proud of this as I was able to identify issues within the designs and prevent delays in the construction process which allowed us to meet deadlines as smoothly as possible.

What have you found to be your most valuable learning opportunity since joining Lendlease? (either on the job or a formal course)

My most valuable learning opportunity since joining Lendlease was when I was sent by my project manager on the Gold Coast to assist the team in Sydney. During my time in the Sydney office I was able to experience the manner in which their team completed the same work. It taught me the importance of diversity in the work place, as this was a different team of people completing the same project yet their approach was quite different to that of the Gold Coast. I was able to learn about their processes and techniques and take the knowledge I gained through this experience back to the Gold Coast to assist us in our approach.

What advice would you give to students considering applying for the Lendlease graduate program this year?

Lendlease is a company filled with an enriching culture. It encourages professional and personal development which I think is essential as a graduate. For any graduates considering Lendlease’s Graduate Program I would advise them to become a part of it. If you thrive off new experiences and the opportunity to join and actively participate in diverse and challenging projects Lendlease’s Graduate Program is perfect. As a graduate with Lendlease you become an essential member of every team and take on the responsibility of rewarding and challenging work that you wouldn’t think a graduate would do. You are treated like any other member of the team with the same responsibilities and expectations, which creates a very rewarding work life.


Lachlan Lord

Lendlease Graduate Program Stream

Corporate Functions (Finance)

Degree and University

Bachelor of Accounting UTS

What made you decide to accept a graduate role with Lendlease and to choose the particular program stream?

I was lucky enough to complete an internship with Lendlease in my first year of University in the Lendlease Building Finance team. The people I met and values of the company resonated with me strongly which persuaded me to join when finishing my degree.

What does a typical day look like for you? (Be realistic – are you onsite/in the office early? Is your role varied?)

I work in the Internal Audit team in Group Finance so there is no typical day! Our team works towards deadlines so it is up to me when my day starts and finishes as long as my work gets done. This suits my lifestyle because I can also work flexibly and remotely. I also try to visit site to make sure I speak to a cross section of people in the business and meet new people.

What work have you been most proud of since joining Lendlease?

Working with people across the business on Community Day. Each year Lendlease fund community projects and every employee across the globe takes a day out of our schedules to help-out. It’s an amazing experience and great to give back.

What have you enjoyed most about working at Lendlease?

The work culture is great! It has even improved in the short amount of time that I have been here so I can’t imagine where it can get to here from here. Flexible working, work gatherings and high performing teams and mentors make me want to continue to work here.

What advice would you give to students considering applying for the Lendlease graduate program this year?

Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Everyone has a unique way of viewing the world and workplace and Lendlease really respects that.

Lendlease


LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex) at Lendlease

In 2018, Lendlease was awarded the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) Platinum Employer, recognising our long-term efforts in driving workplace inclusion for our LGBTI colleagues.

Our teams are diverse; primarily because of the different people we employ but also due to the environments where our people work. More than half of our team work in non-traditional offices, such as construction sites or retail centres. Considering this, we take advantage of days of significance, such as Wear it Purple Day and IDAHOT Day, to ensure our message of inclusion reaches our entire team, regardless of how remote they may be. We have team meetings, generate conversations, help educate and most importantly have fun.

Wear it Purple
