From the beginning I was really made to feel another member of the team which made me feel so welcome. I was introduced to everyone in the office who made me feel it was in their best interest to make me feel welcome and to have the best experience during this week, all taking to time to explain their role and a bit about themselves. I was given real responsibilities rather over the week, rather than just being treated as a student there to watch what they did within their role. The fact that I gained hands on experience was the most enjoyable, as this is what I really hoped to do during my time. By the end of the week I was so sad to leave but everyone I worked with told me to stay in touch and that I am welcome back anytime to do work experience with them. I have even been invited to attend a social event next week if I am available.
I loved every moment of the Insight Programme. My mentor Luke was extremely helpful, and the team were very welcoming, and took me out on any site visits they were going on. Furthermore, there were multiple talks given from people throughout the company that gave me a deeper understanding of property services.
The Programme really did give me an insight into what it would be like working for a top property firm in London. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to anyone seeking to experience whether a career in property is the right path for them. Savills is an admirable company, the professionalism I witnessed throughout this week has been outstanding, its been inspirational and the employees really are top of their game.
