Role Description

The summer vacation scheme ensured a large amount of integration within the assigned department, in my case property management. A variety of tasks were set, each varying in difficulty, from updating spreadsheets and client databases to become involved in specific operations involving the management of various properties. A few tasks involved compiling information for a rent reviews, others involved amending annual reports. Each job however allowed me to experience and understand further how the department operated and the level of integration within the team.
