    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • The insight programme helped me to better understand the daily routine of a rural surveyor, and also the office culture of Savills. My studies have been more abstract and theoretical thus far, so the insight programme has been a real help in being able to visualise potential career options and where I might end up when I finish uni.
