Employment and Industry Participation
Lendlease has formed a partnership with a number of local Industry Partners for the delivery of the Northern Connector, including Catcon, McMahon Services, Intract, LR&M Constructions and SEM Civil to maximise the opportunities available for South Australian, and Northern-Adelaide based businesses.
The project will focus on delivering local participation including:
Creating 480 full-time equivalent jobs each year during construction.
At least 50% of all jobs to be filled by northern suburbs residents.
At least 90% of all on-site labour hours to be undertaken by South Australians.
- At least 20 % of all on-site labour hours to be undertaken by ex-automotive industry workers, Aboriginal people, people facing barriers to employment and trainees and apprentices.

Tendering for work on the Northern Connector Project
The Northern Connector project will set a new benchmark for local industry participation on public infrastructure projects in South Australia.
The aim is to maximise the economic benefit generated by the project, employing as many South Australians as possible on the project as throughout the supply chain.
All packages of work for the Northern Connector Project with Lendlease will be listed on the Industry Capability Network (ICN) Gateway. Industry Partners will release their own packages of work directly to the market. Lendlease will provide details of registered businesses from the ICN Gateway to all of the Industry Partners for their consideration.
