Level Crossings Removal Project (LXRP)
Tell us about yourself My name is Safar Ibrahimi and I am currently undertaking a Bachelor of Business/Law (HR and International Studies) at Swinburne University of Technology.
What does your role at LXRP involve? I was a Learning & Organisational Development intern.
Some of the tasks I undertook were focused around building capability through people, systems, processes, and design to meet business outcomes. My day to day tasks included attending meetings and workshops. Over the last three months I have developed skills in analysing data, writing, creative thinking, and corporate knowledge. I also learnt best practice related to our coaching and career transition program and most importantly interpersonal skills like relationship building and teamwork.
What are some of the highlights or interesting stories from your career? I had the opportunity to attend the Graduate Learning Week with the 2019 cohort of grads. I met some of the most enthusiastic, innovative people from the wider organisation. Spending a week with them and attending the learning workshops broadened my understanding of self-reliance and interpersonal skills.
Do you have any advice for other students? Roll up your sleeves and help with anything that is required by the team. Always seek help and take every opportunity that is granted to you even if you think that you cannot do it.
How would you describe the culture at LXRP? LXRP is a great place to learn and develop while having the opportunity to contribute real value and meaning to the organisation at large. LXRP has given me opportunities to network and connect with senior executives and mentors. These relationships have helped me to bring out the best in myself and accomplish goals.
What surprised you about working at LXRP? I was overwhelmed at how approachable and welcoming everyone was. I was surprised at how encouraging my manager and colleagues were to help me learn and grow. Despite asking many questions my team were supportive and assisted me throughout my internship.
