IT Technician (Former Employee) – Padiham, Lancashire – 16 October 2017
IT Technician at Padiham, Lancashire
Sole job very lonely role. Little communication either over phone or email. Very mundane communication.
Although I gained a lot of experience. Working at the school gave me early indications. The outsource company (lendlease) might be being reviewed by the school to go in house with its IT support. So I took initiative early to seek other work.
Very good place to work on hindsight

Information Manager /Site Administrator (Former Employee) – London Borough of Southwark, Greater London – 11 October 2018
It is a friendly and fun place to work, it like one big family, you can move within the company. The managers are clear with what is required from you, the hardest part of the job is meeting dead-line. The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility of times and how you work.

No day was the same, facilities management so extremely busy, along with organising meeting rooms, booking in contractors, managing reception, ensuring contractors had relevant documentation to work on site, providing site inductions for visitors, issuing working permits and car park passes.
This job was busy extremely varied and the day went so quickly.
There was lots of opportunities to progress within the business.

site supervisor/assistant Logistics manager (Former Employee) – Stafford, Staffordshire – 5 June 2017
The time I spent working for Lend Lease was probably the best I have spent in the 45yrs of being in the building trade.I started there as the on site carpenter and within a few months became the supervisor to the other on site carpenters and the assistant to the senior Logistics manager hence the reason I stayed working on the military base in Stafford for almost 3 yrs. While in that role I learned more on the side of management especially after I took the Site Managers certificate to which I passed and things became a lot clearer on how sites were managed properly.
Working for Lendlease on a everday basis was nice and relaxed as worked with a team of 4. I have learnt various daily school reports when using the Microsoft Excel package and the use of e-mails on using Outlook Express.
The co-workers was very nice and helpful if required any assistance. The most enjoyable part of the job was the flexibility and getting on well as part of a team.
Good company in respect of training, packages and healthcare. Departments can be a issue due to Management - too many managers not enough workers, need to be more work life balance and more meetings with seniors.
while i was working at lend lease i learned skills such as time management, team work and communication.the most enjoyable part of the job is designing your own models and sketches of buildings and rooms.
Receptionist/Project Administrator/ (Current Employee) – Oxford Circus, ENG – 20 August 2015
The company really does look after their staff. First place I have worked in 30 years where you are still considered a human being. Benefits are great, good work/life balance. This is also a great place for graduates who they really train and provide them with jobs once they have graduated. They also have a scheme to get locals back in to work who have a disadvantaged background and again they train them whilst providing them with a permanent role. The company is also working hard within the community and in particular they are trying to get women into construction which is a large project and going well even though it is in the early stages.
My role was to assist and support a team of 70 in a project office. I did this for 8 months with a property development company called Lend Lease and really enjoy my position. My role was the office junior, so my role varied from covering reception for lunch & holidays,booking meeting rooms and ordering lunches for corporate meeting, distributing post in accordance to company filing system, liaising with suppliers regarding any delivery issues and also assisting the office manager with running the office smoothly such as ordering stationery office supplies on a reoccurring basis, assisted PA's in binding contracts, photocopying and scanning documents, processed senior managers expenses using oracle on a monthly basis, transferring PPE to and from sites to ensure smooth visits and so much more. This opportunity has given me a good experience and i now i want to get in to the admin role of work, its taught me the ability to priorities workload and also given me great opportunities such as defibrillator training and life skill workshops like planning & organizing, analytic thinking & problem solving and a few others. I now feel i'm ready to progress my career in admin and i want to further my skills and knowledge in administration. I got along with all my work colleagues, everyone was very friendly and caring, always willing to help. There wasn't a day when i felt like i was dreading work. was always happy to come in because the environment of the office is very welcoming. Had a good relationship with my manager, she was really down to earth and gave good advice and direction.more... The most enjoyable part of the job was going to the company events. they were very interesting and great to be a part of.less

I learned a lot at Bluewater and met some really nice people on the way. Management was always on hand to help when you needed them.

Post Room/Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Harrow, ENG – 10 September 2014
A day at the office would be unpredictable and challenging but safe. The business has taught me to put safety first for myself and others. The management system was supportive and allows for progression within the business. The business clearly specifies job roles that there is no room for conflict so co-workers can only benefit from each other.The hardest part of the job was dealing issues involving local authorities. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with people.
