Laura Hadley

Assistant Development Manager

"If you push yourself then people here will support you to achieve your goals, giving you experiences and opportunities that no other company would at this stage of your career."

Laura joined Lendlease in 2013 as a Graduate.

"I ran a bid process, gaining experience in managing consultants, negotiating heads of terms, producing bid documents, conducting commercial appraisals and generating internal board papers. It was a steep learning curve but one that has stood me in good stead when faced with new tasks or processes," she said.

"My greatest achievement was being asked to attend Forum 15, the Annual Global Strategy Conference in Australia."

Laura has been a part of a number of extra programmes and groups since starting at Lendlease.

"Since joining Lendlease I have joined the Disability in the Workplace group and the 3FI group, promoting innovative practice. In my spare time I have also co-ordinated teams for Trailwalker, a 100km non-stop walk and encouraged participation in the annual Property Triathlon."

A WELCOMING CULTURE

Laura said that she would highly recommend the Graduate Development Programme.

"Lendlease’s culture is supportive and welcoming. I have worked with some great teams and individuals, learning from their experiences and making some lifelong friends along the way," she said. "If you push yourself then people here will support you to achieve your goals, giving you experiences and opportunities that no other company would at this stage of your career."
