Founded in Sydney in 1958 by Dutch immigrant and innovator Dick Dusseldorp, Lendlease was born out of a vision to create a company that could successfully combine the disciplines of financing, development and investment.
Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Lendlease has approximately 12,000 employees internationally. Our regional head offices are located in New York, Singapore and London. Combining our core capabilities of development, construction and investment across the property and infrastructure value chain has allowed us to offer innovative integrated solutions for our clients.
To create the best places, we need the best talent.
We are committed to finding the brightest undergraduates Australia has to offer for our 2020 Lendlease Building Undergraduate Program.

Our Building business is one of Australia’s largest construction companies, recognised for our market-leading design, project management and construction services.

Locally, we have delivered numerous major Defence projects, Jezzine Barracks parkland on The Strand, the world-class AIMS Tropical Marine Research Facilities and a number of buildings on the JCU Douglas Campus, including The Science Place building.
