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.
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.
Savills provides a graduate to look after you which works really well and is very helpful.
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.
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.
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.
Quite relaxed and welcoming, with people wanting to introduce themselves and get to know you.
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.
A graduate was assigned to you which allowed development and departmental talks were organised, but no specific training or development was really organised.
Sports and Social Club
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.
Yes, lots of social events were put on in which we formed good connections.
Inevitably quite high as it was in central London but Savills did pay for some of the social events which was good.
Really good - I ended up taking part in a residential v commercial sports event and other opportunities were available.
