Each day involved departmental talks with the chance for asking questions in a Q and A. There was also a chance to ask current graduates and departmental directors questions. At the end of each day we had two hours to work in a group with other insight students which was presented on the final day.
Every morning we were given an overview of the days activities. We then had various presentations from member of different departments, giving us an insight into what they do. We were always given the opportunity to ask questions which were always thoroughly answered. Every day finished with group work on set presentations. These were presented to a panel of judges on the final day.
The Insight featured departmental talks outlining their roles and function within the business itself. There were also a variety of virtual Q&A sessions and group exercises in order to develop our knowledge and network as students hoping to progress into the field of surveying or any area surrounding it.
The placement is 3 days online. It involved listening to different experiences within Savills and attending departmental talks. Also, a group project in breakout rooms to work as a team to produce a presentation that will be presented to a panel of senior members in the company. It's a great chance to network with graduates and directors, to ask questions and understand the culture and work at Savills. Lastly, a LinkedIn/Social media challenge.
I participated in a range of recruiter-led insight sessions, wherein several department representatives, including company directors, associates, and professional competency advisors provided overviews of their day-to-day work. I also virtually collaborated with a group of other insight students to create and deliver a presentation on potential challenges and opportunities that may face Savills in the next 5 years.
We were lucky enough to attend various talks from different departments. We also had a Q and A sessions with both current graduate student and directors. As part of the programme we were assigned into groups of 10 where we had to present to the rest of the students and Savills employees.
We had numerous talks and Q&A sessions from different departments and management levels from the organisation. This was followed each afternoon with a 2 hour session for preparation for our group presentation to board members at the end of the insight programme. We were given opportunities to ask insightful questions to members of all levels of the organisation. We were shown in talks about the work culture and life of a Savills graduate and how they would support us through our APC.
Watching presentations from different departments on their specific roles and how they came to be employed at Savills. This gave a great insight into the business and how the employees viewed working at Savills. We had time each day to prepare a group presentation which we delivered on the final day to board members.
