The team were lovely and made me feel welcome. I was given a range of work to do. I am 100% certain that urban design is what I want to do. I would of liked a little more responsibility perhaps, and a more formal introduction on the first day - an icebreaker? Something to make us feel valued.
I thoroughly enjoyed my summer internship. It was a wonderful opportunity to gain insight into the industry from renowned experts. It was an excellent chance to network, broaden my experience and gain understanding into less familiar aspects of the job. My confidence and knowledge has improved in a short space of time.
I really enjoyed the team that I was placed in for 4 weeks. They were all very friendly and welcoming. They gave me a variety of work to do throughout my time there so I could really get a feel for what the team does on a daily basis. Everyone was also very happy to speak to me to tell me about what they do at Savills.
The scheme was very well put together with many varied activities spread across the four week period. Activities such as the city tours and the departmental overviews were extremely useful, informative and a great addition to the placement. However, at times the activities were quite intense, such as the lunch with the fee-earners.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole of my placement. The majority of my work was for the Tourism, Leisure and Events Consultancy, yet I was lucky enough to get involved with all of the rural departments in my office. The experience I gained will not only help me with my Masters, but also prepare me for employment afterwards. As well as learning a lot, I was also surrounded by friendly and helpful colleagues who made the placement even more enjoyable.
I have really enjoyed my placement, I think the way in which the Savills central office run the internship is great. I think spending a week with a different department is a great idea as gives you an overview of what the company offers and on the whole ment that your would have a enough work load to complete.
I had a really good time at the Margaret Street office, as well as the work you are involved in, i think what made the experience enjoyable was the staff. From the HR staff who welcome you in to the director of your department, they're up for a good laugh and happy to go into detail in the work you're doing, above and beyond a normal 'work experience'.
It was very enjoyable. With regards to work, it provided an excellent insight into the role and what it entails, with genuine opportunities to complete relevant tasks. There was also an strong social element to the scheme, with ample opportunities provided to engage with the rest of the summer scheme students and existing employees at the company
