A DAY IN THE LIFE
We think diversity and inclusion is incredibly important at Lendlease. That’s why we’ve been talking with some of our employees to find out why they feel Lendlease is the place for them. This week, we caught up with:
Wendy Cranmer - Recruitment and Retention Manager, Be Onsite – our not-for-profit organisation.
I’M CURRENTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR…
Managing the Be Onsite Recruitment and Retention team; liaising with our construction and development project teams, and with the Lendlease supply chain to secure job opportunities. I work with a wide variety of local referrers to identify candidates and work directly with candidates along with my team to support them into sustained work on Lendlease projects.
TO ME, DIVERSITY…
Is the essence of who we are at Be Onsite. We work with people from all cultures and walks of life, from those with challenging backgrounds, to currently serving prisoners and ex-offenders. We get to meet such incredible people.
TO ENCOURAGE EQUALITY, THE INDUSTRY CAN…
Be more open, and focus on being unjudgmental and really reaching out to people. Diversity will follow that.
LENDLEASE IS A PLACE FOR ME BECAUSE…
I feel privileged to do the job I do. In the last seven years, one of the most wonderful things about it is the way that it doesn’t get stale. Change is embraced within the wider company and I enjoy working with a company that wholeheartedly supports that.
