On Thursday 31st January 2019, 14 Year 12 students had the wonderful opportunity to apply for an amazing placement at Lendlease. The work placement is set to begin on Monday 18th February, for one week.
Lendlease is a leading international property and infrastructure group, specialising in project management, construction and providing services to the government. Their aim is to create and deliver innovative and sustainable property and infrastructure solutions for future generations.
Interested students applied independently, including creating a CV and covering letter. They were interviewed by professionals at Lendlease who then gave them individual feedback on interview technique, CVs and covering letters. Students will find this advice invaluable in future applications.
Such placements are highly competitive and open to other schools. So, we would like to heartily congratulate Hakim Yeaamlikha and Abdi-Fatah Adam for securing their placement. Hakim commented, “It was an opportunity to ask questions and learn about the industry. I was nervous at first, but then realised that there was nothing to worry about.”
Students had a lot to say following the experience, commenting,
“I am glad that I had the opportunity to practise my interview skills. I have learnt the importance of time keeping and allowing enough time to get to my interview 10 MINUTES EARLY!” Abir Reza
“It was an eye opening experience, very informative and I really look forward to the opportunity of working at Lendlease.” Abdi-Fatah Adam
