As part of the #aplaceforme campaign, Construction Director at Lendlease, Keith Lovell, who has worked with Lendlease for over 40 years speaks about his experiences.
Lendlease works closely with each of their people in order to understand where they would like their career to go and to help map a career path in order to enable them to achieve these goals. Lendlease also supports its employees with training so that they can decide upon, reach and exceed their own career goals. This helps Lendlease to understand how they can help their employees reach these goals, and how these goals are going to align with Lendlease’s own goals.
Through the Lendlease ‘Inspire’ programme, they prepare individuals for senior executive roles by giving leadership development, experience and networking to those who are interested in progressing. They also give these employees exposure to some of the leaders within Lendlease in order to help them understand what these roles involve and what their experience has been within them. If someone is keen to grow their career within Lendlease, then they are keen to help them.
Keith Lovell, Construction Director said: “You can go from somebody very junior to a very senior position, and my belief is that there are no barriers there.”
