I enjoyed that from day one I was able to get stuck in to a number of different tasks on a range of different projects. I was kept busy most of the time and learnt a variety of important skills that I can use when applying for jobs and once I have secured a job in the future.
I received positive feedback within my department and felt I had a good relationship with the colleagues I was working with.
Whenever I had a question or issue there was always someone to help me, which helped with the work that was set.
Changed day by day depending on what tasks I had set.
The responsibility I was given was fairly substantial however obviously due to the lack of depth in my knowledge it could only take me so far.
The skills I learnt, and the information I was dealing with will help me hugely over the next year while I complete my MSc course in Real Estate at Henley Business School, University of Reading.
The atmosphere was kind, friendly and hard working however due to it being in August the office was fairly empty as many people were away.
The organisation between all interns was fantastic as there was a great mix of socials and team building exercises. The only thing the internship lacked was more time out of the office seeing and experiencing a variety of property first hand. I do feel this was not their fault entirely due to the time of year.
I feel at the time they gave me as much time as possible, with a staff shortage being noted. Obviously more time was needed in order to develop skills to a decent standard.
I would highly enjoy working at the organisation, and would jump at the opportunity.
Good social events were organised and I am still in contact with some of them today.
Due to the office being in the West End living and socialising was expensive, as would be expected.
Prime location - fantastic nightlife.
Social events for food, drink and sport were available and were enjoyed by all.
Internship (1-4 Months)
