    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • Savills were very good at putting on social events for the summer scheme students and also making sure we learned about the company more generally.

    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • They gave me a reasonable amount of work. However, in RCM, 4 weeks is probably too shorter time to really see a project all the way through.

    3/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Savills provides a graduate to look after you which works really well and is very helpful.

    4/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Fairly busy. Being on the summer scheme, various events were put on for us such as walking tours and departmental talks as well as the work you do in your department.

    3/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • They trusted me with a few tasks, but generally everything was then looked over by someone more senior. Again, 4 weeks was probably not quite enough time to really understand and learn the processes better in order to be given more responsibility.

    3/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I learned some good analytical skills and developed my excel skills a lot more. My role wasn't that client facing so I didn't get much exposure to them. In terms of my degree, it might be reasonably helpful for finance papers in the future.

    4/5

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • Quite relaxed and welcoming, with people wanting to introduce themselves and get to know you.

    5/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • It is a very well organised summer scheme, with social events and activities organised on a regular basis exposing you to a range of Savills employees.

    5/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • A graduate was assigned to you which allowed development and departmental talks were organised, but no specific training or development was really organised.

    3/5

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • Sports and Social Club

    Company Parties/Events

    3/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • Reasonably appealing as they will give a really good exposure to some of the best clients. However, compared to some firms, the salary may be slightly reduced to compensate for working for such an established firm.

    3/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • Yes, lots of social events were put on in which we formed good connections.

    5/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Inevitably quite high as it was in central London but Savills did pay for some of the social events which was good.

    3/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Pretty good.

    4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • Really good - I ended up taking part in a residential v commercial sports event and other opportunities were available.

    4/5
