Started at 10AM and finished at 5PM for 3 days from the 23rd March to the 25th March. We engaged with current graduate and director Q&A's, did a group work project with other insight students and then presented this, we had many talk for all the different areas within Savills and learnt about what the options are for us in the future, regarding APC and the route we can take.
I have learnt what all the different departments do within Savills. It has also helped me to further develop my group work and socialising skills with new people.
I found this very interesting as before I applied and took part in the insight programme I didn't really know what all the specific areas where. This insight has meant that I am closer to knowing what area of real estate that I would like to work in. It also amazed me how diverse the range of roles available are.
The overall atmosphere was very welcoming and felt very relaxed. Everyone seemed to be engaged and especially engaged when doing the group project.
I really enjoyed the insight, it was definitely different having it online but I do think that it was the best that it could be. I enjoyed hearing about all the different roles that are available and hearing about all of the opportunities to work abroad. It was also nice to learn about the APC as I now understand what it entails.
I would suggest to others that make sure you have a passionate interest in real estate, as this makes the whole experience a lot more interesting. Also, do a but of research before so that you have a rough idea of the business and the sections which they offer.
