Thoroughly enjoyed it and it gave an invaluable insight into Savills life. Sitting amongst the grads to directors shown just how tight knit the group is and that everyone works with each other. I was included on various social events that took place and networking opportunities which was very enjoyable.
I found my experience with Savills a fantastic insight into the business and property industry. It has been particularly helpful for my studies in writing reports, accuracy of calculations and the importance of confidentiality. The staff were particularly helpful and approachable, and it was a great opportunity to network with other staff from firms across the country.
Thoroughly enjoyed getting to experience the different departments even though I was only meant to be in development. Great bunch of people and always happy to help with a task or explain. Going out on multiple site visits and inspections was a great way to get to know the area and people who work here!
I had a really good time during my internship at Savills and it even exceeded my high expectations. It is so nice to meet people from Savills to see how passionate they are about the company and that they work here because they are enjoying it rather just coming into work for the paycheck at the end of the month. I have honestly had a really good experience with great exposure and it is so well put together by the incredible HR Team.
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this summer scheme. What made the experience both less daunting and more beneficial was the attention to detail in planning our time at the company. The combination of joining one team for the 4 weeks and mixing this with networking opportunities and talks by various departments ensured that we got the absolute most out of the experience.
It was an insightful experience where I gained invaluable experience. The team were fantastic at getting me involved which I found helpful in making the most of the internship. Socialising with the other interns made the experience much more fun and relatable.
I thoroughly enjoyed my Summer Scheme at Savills - it was great to be given a variety of work from cashflows to lease summaries and side-by-side analyses. I was also given a lot of support from across the team - from Director-level to a graduate mentor, which was a great experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed my internship. I felt welcomed and included in the office. Being given the freedom to do a few rotations with the development and new homes teams was a particular highlight as it allowed me to gather further experience in other sectors. I was also regularly set work and taken onto sites to gather a better understanding.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Savills, It has been an invaluable experience. I believe I have learnt a lot in such a short space of time and taken away a wealth of knowledge and also a lot of fun and laughs. I have met some wonderful people and everyone has been very welcoming and kind.
This has by far been my favourite work experience that I have taken part in. I think due to the inclusive structure of Savills, this allowed me to settle in and really feel part of the team, which is something that has been missing in previous corporate real estate experience.
It has been a highly insightful experience and what I have gained from it is more than I could've expected. I've been given opportunities to reach my goals and to really gain an understanding of the company and the different departments. It has been a valuable experience in which I have gained skills to take forwards into my future career.
My mentor was very good at giving me interesting assignments, which provided actual value to the company and she introduced me to many different people around the company. This made the insight week very enjoyable and I feel like I learned a lot from this experience, particularly from getting to talk to so many people across functions.
I enjoyed the placement as in the fact it was good to get the experience and gain knowledge of what it is actually like to work for both the company and as a surveyor. The people I met were nice and helpful if I had a query. However I think there are improvements that could be made.
I really enjoyed the savills insight programme. It was well planned and the activities were very informative, giving me both an insight to the culture and the work that savills does. It gave me an insight into the different parts of the company and what they did, and to see how different parts of the business come together.
The Insight Programme really helped me gain more of an understanding of the Building Surveying profession. Seeing the day to day processes and how different surveys are carried out was something I hadn’t really had much experience of during my first year at uni.
I was given to opportunity to network with a number of people already in the industry, giving me a chance to hear first hand about different departments, and weather the department I chose to have my insight in (Planning), really was for me. These talks have helped me to become more open minded about my future as a result.
