I thoroughly enjoyed my virtual experience with Savills as it allowed me not only to broaden my knowledge in the different sectors but to also connect and network with those both at senior and graduate level. It was particularly interesting to see the work that is carried out on a day to day basis including completed projects in prime London locations. I really got a sense of how rewarding a career with Savills can be from how passionately each individual spoke about their work and projects.
I very much enjoyed the Savills virtual insight programme, it was a great opportunity to meet industry professionals and gain knowledge on how Savills works. This also gave us the opportunity to meet some like minded people and network , of which I thoroughly enjoyed. In the future I look to work one day work for Savills and the fact that they offer such high support and education for all their employees really appeals to me.
I found the insight day very helpful, as it helped me learn more about Savills as a company and how the graduate scheme works. The day was very well structured and I now feel much more confident about the APC. All of the speakers were extremely encouraging and keen to answer any questions. I am now even more determined to apply for a graduate job at Savills once I have completed my degree.
I very much enjoyed my placement year, I was able to experience a wide range of work and had the opportunity to get stuck in straight away. I worked with two teams mainly however due to COVID-19 I was able to assist two more as they were very busy, which was very interesting and useful to experience more of the business. I enjoyed the scope of work and found that I was supported well by colleagues.
I've really enjoyed the week because it built on my previous work experience with other companies and pushed me a step further to expanding my knowledge in planning. The work was a perfect level of challenging, and tasks were explained to me in a clear and succinct way. There was a good balance of pressure and understanding from my colleagues who wanted to push me but also make sure I felt at ease with the work I was given.
The variety of experience gained has been fantastic! I have had the opportunity to get immersed in a variety of different areas including valuating office space, carrying out a viability valuation, undertaking a site inspection and measurements and spending a day undertaking site inspections for the county council. The office have been absolutely great at supporting me and getting me involved in as much as possible.
I have very much enjoyed my time here at Savills. The inclusive nature of the company, had me getting involved right from the start of my placement ranging from helping directors to graduates and being able to shadow agents on viewings with clients. Everyone in the office was very friendly, welcoming and approachable which made it a very enjoyable experience. I am very grateful, for Savills for letting such a good internship go ahead in a difficult time.
