In 2008, Lendlease launched BeOnsite, an award-winning not-for-profit organisation in the UK that helps people start a career in the construction industry, and with it, a new chapter in life.
Today, 700 people and counting have built life-long skills, careers, support systems and futures for themselves—all with the help from the BeOnsite team, our incredible partners and supporters.
"We can all make a difference both in construction, the wider industry and our society – after all, stable, well-paid employment changes lives for the better.” Jessica Mellor-Clark, Head of BeOnsite.

The Inspiring Change Awards have been running for five years and highlight and reward organisations within the construction and infrastructure sector that have created a more inclusive culture. The awards are organised by CECA and supported by CITB and the Construction Leadership Council. The judges were looking for innovative interventions that are aligned to company strategy and will inspire other employers to follow their lead. The awards recognise businesses that improve the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as that of the local community and society at large.
