Lendlease knows that they have immensely talented women in their business. But, they want to know what can be done to encourage more women into the industry? Why do Lendlease’s female employees feel that Lendlease is the place for them? Their new interview series finds out first-hand.
Lendlease caught up with Amber Neate, Assistant Project Manager at Rathbone.
I’M CURRENTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR…
Managing the roofing, landscaping, feature passageways and bespoke Artisan gates on the project as part of my role in the Envelope team. I manage them from design through to delivery on site, and procurement of their materials as well. I started on Rathbone in December 2015, but have been with Lendlease for six years, working in Australia previously.
TO ME, DIVERSITY MEANS…
Embracing people’s differences and uniqueness, encouraging everyone to be involved, despite their differences.
TO ENCOURAGE EQUALITY, THE INDUSTRY CAN…
Push to create more inclusive networks, which I have noticed starting to happen since I moved to the UK 18 months ago. In Australia, I was involved in industry groups like the National Association of Women in Construction. We had events to encourage women into the industry and it provided a support network for women already in construction.
LENDLEASE IS A PLACE FOR ME BECAUSE…
There are really interesting jobs. I have always been on interesting projects with unique challenges. I’m in the Aspire programme this year, and the opportunities for progression are fantastic. I wouldn’t have that at any other company – it lets me work on the things I need to become a leader.
