Diversity at Mirvac

Diversity diversity icon

Mirvac


At Mirvac our culture recognises the importance of gender diversity, innovative thinking, workplace flexibility and inclusive leadership as critical to building a strong brand and highly engaged workforce.

We have a dedicated focus on programs and initiatives to increase female representation at all levels of our business including female only mentoring and sponsorship programs and a female only development program for our Construction group. We track our progress against gender diversity targets on a monthly basis and we complete an annual gender pay equity review. We have been awarded the Workplace Gender & Equality Agency (WGEA) Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation for the past 4 years recognising our continued commitment to gender equality.

We have recently been ranked #2 in the world (1st in Asia-Pacific) in the 2019 Equileap Gender Equality Global report, in the world's first in-depth cross-sector ranking (areas scored include gender balance of the workforce, senior management and board of directors, as well as equal pay, parental leave, non-discriminatory hiring and promotion, and supply chain safety).

We have a very successful flexible work program in place which supports all employees to work flexibly. This program includes an initiative called My Simple Thing which asks employees to think of a simple change they could incorporate into their work lives to improve their work-life quality i.e. leaving early or arriving later once a week to go for a run, go to yoga, spend time with family etc. Three quarters of our employees have some form of flexible work arrangement in place.

We aim to be an inclusive workplace with a safe and respectful environment. We understand the value of having a diverse workforce and strive to partner with organisations who can help us achieve this. For example we partner with organisations like CareerTrackers and CareerSeekers on programs to employ indigenous students and refugees and asylum seekers. We have a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in place which maps out how we as a business can build relationships and respect for indigenous Australians and also how we can provide opportunities for the indigenous community through our purchasing and hiring power.

Our focus on Diversity & Inclusion has undoubtedly helped us to achieve overall increased levels of staff engagement. Our overall group engagement score for 2019 was 90% putting us in the global high performing category for the second consecutive year.

 
 
 

Social & Environmental Responsibility

Mirvac


Our Sustainability strategy, This Changes Everything, sets out clear targets to ensure we continue to have a positive environmental and social impact, and make better choices in all that we do. Out approach to ESG is anchored in Mirvac’s focused, diversified, integrated strategy and our purpose to Reimagine Urban Life.

We’re focusing on six key areas where we can deliver the most positive impact:

Climate Change

Climate change has the potential to significantly disrupt our business, and our planet, and we know we must make some big changes to reduce our carbon emissions. That’s why we plan to be net positive carbon by 2030.

Natural Resources

Our industry relies on finite natural resources to construct and operate buildings. Therefore, we have made a commitment to achieve net positive water and zero waste by 2030.

Our Community

The places we create shape lives by making people feel safe, happy and connected. We leave a lasting positive legacy in every community we help create.

Social Inclusion

We aim to be a force for good, we want to provide opportunities to those who don’t always get them and support businesses that are set up for purpose. This is why we will invest $100 million in the social sector by 2030.

Our People

Our people are our strongest asset and our success depends on their engagement, capability and diversity. This is why culture, inclusion and flexibility are so important to us.

Trusted Partner

Trust in all institutions is at an all-time low, which means doing the right thing is even more important. We are committed to be the most trusted owner and developer.

Day in the Life of Working at Mirvac

Mirvac


The following stories have been provided by our previous Internship participants who now have built their careers with us. Follow their ‘day in life story’ to gain insight into what it is like working at Mirvac.


Zac Langsford
Trainee Development Manager, Commercial Development Mirvac
Curtin University, Perth
Bachelor of Commerce, Property Development and Valuation
2017

6.15am: Alarm sounds – time to get up, iron my shirt, eat some cereal and pack my lunch for the day.

7.30am: I’m out the door on my bike to work. The journey takes 20 minutes and is mostly downhill. If it was raining I’d take the train to Redfern and walk to the office. At the office end of trip facility, I shower and get changed out of my sport gear and into my work clothes. I’ve left my boots and trousers in my locker overnight and brought my shirt in my backpack.

8.15am: I arrive at my desk and start the day by reading Mirvac news mentions and property industry subscription emails. This sparks a conversation with my project team who I sit with about a new development that has been approved in the Sydney CBD. After this, I look through several unread emails that have come through overnight from some consultants engaged on my project, only a couple need replying. I then grab my notepad which I use every day for general notes and in meetings and title the day and write my ‘To Do List’ for the day, this will include the times of meetings that are on today, items and emails to follow up on, invoices to process and also my ‘Work in Progress’ items that I’ll need to put some extra time toward today.

9.00am: My first meeting today is with my project’s construction team and my manager, the Development Manager of the project. The topic of discussion for this meeting is a high-risk construction item that has required us to meet up fortnightly and update the team on design progress. The Project Manager runs the meeting and works through a list of items that must be reported on this week. My role is to report on the status of various items that I have been assigned, this has required some phone calls to government authorities and advice from another Project Manager with civil construction knowledge during the week. At the end of the meeting, the minutes are released and I receive some further actions to be reported on in a fortnight.

10.00am: I am back at my desk and my team have received details of a draft leasing proposal from a retail tenant within the new development. I get up the project feasibility and plug in some new numbers for rent per sqm and incentives and we assess how this impacts upon our key financial metrics for the project. Although only a quick analysis we can still provide our findings to our leasing team with advice on whether this deal adds up on the project feasibility. My manager proposes we meet up tomorrow afternoon to go through the deal in more depth, so I send an invite to her for 3.00pm tomorrow.

10.30am – 12.00pm: I have half an hour to prepare for my next meeting which is a weekly team meeting, this is held at our favourite café down the road from the office. As such, we don’t have the luxury of a projector screen to present our items, I therefore take to some printing of a few excel tables and graphs I have prepared earlier in the week. The attendees for the meeting include the Project Manager, Retail Development Manager, Commercial Development Manager and our Project Design Manager, this is a great opportunity for me to listen and learn as to how the others in my team who have thorough property experience approach challenges and opportunities on the project. I often ask a few questions and report to the team on items I am responsible for i.e. the project budget, project briefs and several smaller items that I have been working on during the week.

12.00pm: Today a colleague and I have organised to go for a kick of the footy at the park close by to the office. After a short stroll to the park we aim to have a quick kick for around 30 mins. It’s important to get out and get some fresh air and have some fun and we are fortunate that Mirvac and our management encourage us to take longer lunch breaks to fit in some fitness. Once back in the office, I quickly dig into my lunch and get back to my desk to prepare for a site walk at 1.30pm.

1.30pm: I have been invited by another project team to go on their site today. Under my desk I have a hard hat, glasses, reflective jacket and a pair of steel capped boots. I meet with the project team in the office and we head together to the building site and inspect on various items that in the program are due to be completed today. Within the group we are accompanied by the design manager who has a great eye for detail so it’s very interesting to hear from them as we walk around. The building has topped off and now much of the mechanical and electrical services are being installed throughout the building, this is a great opportunity for me with limited construction knowledge to understand how the building is constructed and fit out with services and to understand the sequencing of construction milestones. I often point at things and ask what they are, there are a lot of features that go unnoticed but they all have a role to plan. After an hour walk we head back to the office.

2.30pm: I have ceased an opportunity to work on items on my ‘To Do List’ and ‘Work in Progress List’ for the next couple of hours. The morning has been busy so far, so I am excited to sit down at my desk with a cup of tea and get into some work. Firstly, I attend to my ‘To Do List’ items which today requires me to process a few invoices that we have received from our consultants on the project. This involves matching the fee on our accounting platform and then forwarding the paid invoice onto higher management for approval. Next, I follow up on a few emails I have sent earlier in the week. For instance, one is to our Architect as we requested an updated NLA plan for a potential commercial tenant due to some design ideas we came up with in the project team. After some emails, phone calls and invoicing I attend to my ‘Work in Progress List’, which today I’ll put some time toward working on the project brief for a future tenant.

4.30pm: The team and I now attend a meeting at the office of a Landscape Architect in Surry Hills. After a short taxi journey, we arrive and sit down to discuss their latest issue of drawings for a scope of works to design the landscaping on the perimeter of our new development site. Prior to the meeting all members of the Mirvac team have had the opportunity to review and mark-up the drawings which require some further detail and clarification of several items. After the meeting we have come to conclusion of some design items and have given the architect till the end of next week to reissue the updated plans.

5.30pm: I am back in the office and just looking through some emails and correspondence that has come through over the afternoon. Some require a reply, but others can be left for tomorrow. The team and I take a break from the computer and just have a good laugh and chat to end the day.

6.00pm: I leave the office and get changed back into my sport gear and head home on my bike. On my way I stop by the grocer to grab some ingredients for dinner. Once home, I shower, get changed and turn on some music and get in the kitchen.

6:45am: I wake up, have breakfast and get ready. I like to be out the door by 7:30 so I know I am on track for the bus to arrive at Bondi Junction train station by 8:00am.

8:15am: My train arrives at Martin Place, I can’t start my day without a coffee and it is usually rush hour at the cafés so I pre-order my coffee and it is always ready for me as I walk in the door. Sometimes I will work at our Head Office and other times I will work at one of our shopping centre offices. One of the great perks of Mirvac is having your laptop ready to go wherever you are so I have the flexibility to work with the National Marketing team at head office and all of centre marketing teams to keep up with all the exciting things happening.

8:30am: I head into the office and get settled into a spot, we have a hot desking arrangement so every day you are most likely to be in a different spot next to a different person then the day before! First thing in the morning I like to map out my day by checking my calendar for any meetings and reminders. If I have time I will conduct a quick scan of our shopping centres website and social pages to know I am up to date with the latest events and offers (I also like to check the links are working).

9:00am: I have a catch up with my manager, whether that be in person or a skype call, we go through the latest happenings and discuss anything that needs to be done. Retail is a very exciting sector to work in as there is always something new in the pipeline, from film promotions to guest events we constantly have something in the works at a national level for our centres to roll out. Communication is vital with management to ensure I am across everything and am on the same page as them!

10:30am: I head into a meeting with the National Marketing team for an ideation session for the next financial years marketing plan. It is essential to plan well in advance to ensure we can delivery a strong strategy for our centres and brainstorm creative and innovative campaigns that can be customised for the market at each centre.

11:30am: Getting back to my desk I regather my thoughts and make sure I am still on track for everything I would like to get done for the day. I list my things to do in order of priority to make sure if I don’t get to things at the end of my list I can come back to them tomorrow. Sometimes I will head downstairs to the café and grab a snack and continue my work looking out over the harbour – We have an amazing view!

1:00pm: Lunch time! I usually like to take a walk along the harbour and grab something to eat before coming back into the office, it is good to get outside and take a break from the emails.

2:00pm: Settled back at my desk feeling refreshed, and most likely sipping my second cup of coffee for the day. I revisit my list and continue my work, I like to look at what is coming up for the week as it is easy to miss something. I make sure I am up to date with any presentations that are required from our partners for promotions we have ran and any invoices that need processing.

4:00pm: Towards the end of the day I like to touch base with my team to see if anyone requires assistance with anything. Sometimes reaching out to team members gives me opportunities to learn new things such as data analysis and website back-end skills. The team are always willing to teach you new things which is such an important part of development, there is always something new to learn in marketing and having such skilled colleagues is a huge benefit.

5:30pm: I start to pack up my desk and put everything into my locker. I walk to the train station and make my way home.


Sebastian Lax
Trainee Development Manager, Apartments Residential
University of Technology Sydney – Sydney
Bachelor of Construction Project Management
2019

6:45am: I wake up, have a shower and get dressed.  I then catch the bus down to the ferry and catch the ferry into Circular Quay.

7:30am: The ferry pulls in and as a typical millennial, I order my coffee through an app as I arrive and pick it up on the way to Mirvac’s head office at 200 George Street.

8:30am: My first meeting of the day is a one-on-one with the Assistant Development Manager. One of my roles is to take the minutes for our weekly Project Coordination meeting. This is a meeting that brings together our Development team, the Architects, our Services Coordinators, Project Managers and Site Engineers.  This is an important meeting as there are representatives from five divisions of the project and so the minutes’ need to be 100 per cent accurate before being issued. For this reason, we review every action point in detail. This creates an accurate reference document should any questions or disputes arise in the future.  It also gives me a great opportunity to ask any questions I may have about what was being discussed during the meeting and the plan for the week ahead.

9:30am: The development team that I’m in, then meet with an external urban planning consultant who has come in to discuss the best corporate practice required to submit a set of documents to the Department of Planning. We get some good advice on this aspect.

10:30am: After a short break, the team go downstairs to level 26 to have a WIP (Works in progress) meeting with the sales and marketing team. During this meeting we discuss any new project specific marketing material, discuss our sales rates and any upcoming PR events. It is a good focused meeting for me as it allows me to plan dates for my own diary.

12:00pm: I sit down, check my emails and book a GoGet car as the team are driving out to Riverwood this afternoon to check out a prototype of the modular bathroom pods that we will be using in our development.

1:00pm: I go down to the carpark to get the car and then pick my team up outside our office.

2:00pm: I am the designated driver and my team are the 4 self-appointed backseat drivers. We eventually get to the warehouse, where we meet up with the construction team and discuss any issues that could potentially arise during the installation and quality control process. Overall, we are impressed with the pod bathrooms, they look fantastic and have an amazing high-quality finish.

3:00pm: We then all hop back in the car as we now need to go and sign off on the tile samples in our display suite.

4:00pm: After a lengthy discussion we come to a consensus and the tiles are signed off.  We then head back to the city.

5:00pm: I finally sit down at my desk and do some of my more day to day tasks that need doing (paying invoices, following up consultants, tracking sales rates). It is good to deal with these smaller things as otherwise they can build up.

6:00pm: I start packing up my desk.  We have a hot desking office policy so every night and I need to put all my stuff away into my locker, as tomorrow I will most likely be at a completely different desk. I then head to wharf.
