Role Description

Working in the development department presented a diverse range of roles and tasks that I was involved with. Though the main project that I undertook during my time at Savills was to produce a report for Tower Hamlets Borough Council I also attended meetings with clients, site visits and conducted market research.

    2/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • The nightlife in London is great.

    5/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
