GRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN PROPERTY

Doris - "No two days are ever the same in property marketing!"

Doris Xu

Marketing, Property, 2017 Cohort

1. What project are you currently working on? 

My last rotation was with the Digital Experience Team and I was tasked with managing the rollout Google My Business, a free digital channel on Google, across the Property business. This required me to liaise with agencies and Google on consolidating our listings, developing user guides, instruction manuals and a communications plan for launch.

2. What are your day to day activities? 

No two days are ever the same in property marketing! I could be assisting with digital campaign deliveries, conducting competitive analysis on site functionalities, doing website updates on Sitecore or post campaign evaluations for our digital channels.

3. What are 1-2 things you wish you knew before you started?

I wish I realised sooner not to overlook tasks that seems mundane initially. Always be humble and do everything well, you never know what you will learn and where it could lead you. 

4. What has been the most rewarding professional experience since joining Lendlease?

All my rotations have given me amazing experiences and helped me develop professionally. This included end-to-end project management with the development and launch of Tableau, a data visualisation system; event logistics management of one of the biggest Display Village launches for our Communities business and working on the content and distribution of a magazine!

However, I would have to say the most rewarding experience was being given the opportunity to host the Global Employee Update in 2017. Presenting and interviewing our Group and Business Unit CEOs in front of a 1000 live audience, with the show broadcasted all around Australia was such an unbelievable moment. I’ve learnt so much about presentation and communications skills, as well as the power of being brave and saying yes to opportunities.

Francesca Bell

Urban Regeneration, Property, 2018 cohort graduate

Francesca, Graduate 2018 Cohort

1. What project are you currently working on? 

I am currently working across a number of projects with the Queensland Urban Regeneration Business, including Brisbane Showgrounds and New Business. 

2. What are your day to day activities?  

My day to day activities vary depending on the project/phase I’m working on. I’ve worked with the residential (apartments) team on market research; the commercial team on the legal settlement of 25 King Street; and New Business bids, working on the submission documentation and refining the proposed masterplan, as well as the infrastructure and retail teams. 

3. What are 1-2 things you wish you knew before you started?  

Graduates aren’t expected to know everything when joining the team, but the more helpful you can be – the more you are able to be exposed to. Don’t be afraid to offer to help! 

4. What has been the most rewarding professional experience since joining Lendlease?

The most rewarding professional experience at Lendlease has been the opportunity to work on two bid projects. The bid work was fast paced, complex and interesting, and allowed me to gain many new skills quickly in a changing environment.
