Role Description

Insight into how the Savills business works

Overview

1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.

The morning ran from 10-11:30 and was educational learning about various different departments within the business; from calls with numerous members within in the Savills team. After a small break, we continued calls with other departments giving us an insight on what teams do and how their day is scheduled. In the afternoon we were given a group task to present on the last day about issues the property market will face in the next 5 years.

Skills

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

The insight week has helped me develop my presentation skills, given me an insight to the path in which I would need to take to get into the property market. In addition it has developed my networking skills and allowed me to communicate with other people in my age group who are interested in similar career paths.

Business Insight

3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?

It was very interesting to get an idea about a large scale property frim and all elements that are funnelled into making the business work. Furthermore, it has shown me the diversity of roles within the industry. with other 200 service lines it allowed me to understand all the potential roles that could possibly be of interest.

Culture

4. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?

The culture surrounding Savills seems very inclusive as they like to get graduates involved from the very start, the diversity and inclusivity is unquestionable and have a very well structured program to make sure that everyone has a place on the Savills team. The general atmosphere was very much a work hard, play hard mentality with many extracurricular schemes and social events which the company put on for there employees.
