Summer scheme student in development and valuation team
I very much enjoyed my time, I was allowed to start immediately on work and valuations and was kept busy throughout my time with a range of visits, valuations and development types.
Throughout, the team were extremely busy and delegated work to me and trusted me to complete this. When I flagged queries with contracts or ground leases they paid attention and discussed this with me.
Throughout the 4 weeks I always felt able to ask for assistance and was able to comfortably ask questions of any member of the team and no matter the situation they were always friendly and approachable.
The skills I have practiced and learned during my time in the role will be ones that I use daily for my entire career moving forward and will allow me to succeed and prosper within the industry.
From the moment I started on my first day, there were emails of welcome, technology and logins available, stationary, friendly faces and clear guidance on the work expected, visits already in the diary, options for events to attend and flexibility on how I would like to work.
Throughout I have been checked on to see that I am happy and able to feel useful, I have been spoken to about future opportunities and graduate schemes and what I can expect.
Amazing, such a friendly and supportive place, having worked in a number of offices in my past career and during recent work experience I can say that I would recommend the company to anyone who will listen and would expect everyone to be lucky enough to work their to achieve great things and be supported throughout their career.
Completely, they have discussed my final year of study and my focus for dissertation and have put me in touch with employees that could offer guidance and property insight, they have discussed the next steps and how to succeed during the graduate scheme process.
veery clearly as I was doing the same job from day one and know completely what it would be like if I were to start the role tomorrow and what the day to day ebb and flow of the work is like.
The company is a friendly and welcoming place, they believe in their staff, treat them well and support their career development.
Extremely as the insight has taught me what specific roles entail and how I would fit into these areas, as well as giving me the opportunity to continue to contact other teams to discuss further work experience and shadowing.
I was well paid and more than in any other summer scheme I have been involved in. I was not expected to pay for anything including numerous team lunches and celebrations
There were a lot of sessions booked but these were generally based up in London with the regional offices having online attendance, which offered less networking options. However as an office I was included in all celebrations and team lunches and was able to visit other offices to network further.
Very friendly and everyone was very approachable and post work there were plenty of social outings that could be joined for those not driving.
I did discuss with some members of my team the activities that they had been involved in and the regular opportunities that come up for the employees.
With out a doubt - YES
