Office Insights: Employability Training from Lend Lease @ Lend Lease
Jun 2 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Have you ever wondered what it is like to work in a support role for a top international private business?

Lend Lease is a listed property group specialising in project management and construction, real estate investment and development.  They are based in an award-winning building in Regent’s Place.

On Tues 2 June 2015, a team of their PAs are delivering a workplace workshop:

  • If you are already working, but need the confidence to step up in terms of working for a top international company like Lend Lease….
  • If you are returning to work after time out…
  • If you are looking for your first job and want to know about the corporate workplace…

Then this is the workshop for you.

Topics covered include:

  • What is it like to be a PA/Admin/Customer Service worker in an international company?
  • The Lend Lease PA job description will be demystified and the criteria explained.
  • What does “smart casual” business wear look like?
  • What technology would you be using?  Visuals of Outlook inbox and dairies will be shown to highlight the current version of Microsoft and how it is used in business.
  • How do you develop relationships in the workplace?  What is “inappropriate behaviour”?
  • What are the rules about what you can say in emails?  What are the potential issues?
  • How do you manage your boss’ expectations?  How assertive can you be?
  • With the new informality in the workplace how do you work out where to draw boundaries?
  • Working parents and rights around flexible working.


This training will be held in Lend Lease’s offices which are a showcase for occupant health, productivity and employee engagement. Sustainable features include a focus on indoor air quality with 3800 plants, a bio diverse green roof designed to mimic the seasons and London’s largest ‘insect hotel’ for a commercial building.

Places are limited – to book your place, email:  catherine@volunteercentrecamden.org.uk

This training takes place at Lend Lease (between Warren Street/Great Portland Street) on Tuesday 2 June 2015 from 10am to 2pm. And lunch is included.
