Please comment on your role and day-to-day responsibilities.
Strategic mapping, Acquisitions, bid development
I work with consultants and contractors day to day, help out the broader team with papers, research and collating data. Make decisions on getting the project done.
Involved in all environmental activities, specifically reports
Mundane daily tasks such as processing invoices should be 95% handled by an accounts/payments team.
Site coordination and supervision of civil works, quality, procurement etc.
Procurement, quality assurance, managing, programming
My role supports a number of analytical tasks and involves solving of many different business problems with no day-to-day predetermined activities.
Can be boring sometimes, but always a sense of achievement when a large task or project is completed.
Very busy but I enjoy fitting together the many aspects of my role.
Graduate, Port Macquarie
I work as part of the estimating and procurement team for projects. I am responsible for sending works packages to subcontractors and consulting with them about the project. I also enter their submissions to comparison sheets which are forwarded to our estimators for analysis.
Roles and task vary day-to-day depending on what the project demands. A general area that needs improvement is the perception of young people and the values they bring to the company and individual teams; although industry experience is little, they are the future client and employer. Senior people need to listen and show appreciation!
Day to day I manage consultants in a design manager role. I manage design packages and small budgets, and liaise with the construction team where needed.
I'm currently in the design team during the planning phase and I'm enjoying interacting with the Consultants on a basic and technical level.
Manage packages-inc money
Everyday at Lendlease I do something different which makes me excited to go to work. I always have work to do that varies between Environmental Engineering, Procurement and safety.
I am able to undertake a wide range of tasks such as project management, contracts, finances, planning, scheduling, talking to subcontractors and clients.
Manage subcontractors and liaise with consultant and client to drive positive outcomes.

Good amount of job responsibility

Large amounts of tedious paperwork but often get a lot of responsibility early in your career. Not stuck in the office, get to walk on site everyday. Often need to seek approval from clients and consultants before any action can be taken which can be slow.
Look after construction packages - get contracts together, reporting, managing and forecasting costs
I'm currently preparing tenders and responding to requests for information. Involves some paperwork, making phone calls (talking to subcontractors), review and coordinate drawings from architects, engineers, and everyone else involved in my project. I attend a lot of meetings and sometimes get to visit sites similar to our project. In the grad program, I also spend a lot of time doing online learning courses. When tendering is over, I will have to review the submissions and meet with the subcontractors to discuss their tenders and make sure they haven't excluded anything to decide who will be using for the project. Then we will go to construction certification after which I expect to be heading out to site to supervise works, making sure all the materials our subcontractors bring to site and everything they build is as per our drawings and specifications. We also have to make sure they're complying with Lendlease's Global Minimum Requirements which control health and safety on site.
Managing construction activities. Conducting inductions, toolbox talks, pre-start meetings, ensuring safety compliance on site, ensuring programs are met and communicating information back to office.
Facilitation of construction through communication and coordination
Mix of everything. Client, Finance, Engineering, Construction management.
Document control, procuring upcoming trades, resolving problems on site, ensuring safety, quality, monitoring program and issuing programs to subcontractors.
Managing daily operations for a project Programming Contracts Procurement Budgeting and liaising with stakeholders
Currently I am working on a bid team reviewing many of the construction management elements of submission. this could include programming, construction management plans, staging, running tenders, writing scopes, estimating etc.
Running of four trade packages (facade, painting, final clean and swing stages).
I enjoy my role, it is however very challenging.
Package management, procurement, site responsibilities and safety management
Site engineer, responsible for managing a variety of packages
Challenged each day with strong support structures.
My work mainly involves doing the financial accounting for our property development projects throughout Australia. That includes; posting journals, raising billing events, advising finance managers, project creation, maintenance and closure.
I could be doing more engineering & less admin, but overall I can see the value in what I do and that helps keep me motivated.
