Role Description

I worked in the European Real Estate department. I helped upload comparable data onto spreadsheets and assisted with research about potential clients. But as there was not a lot of work coming in for my team over the month I was there I spent some time looking over previous valuation reports to understand more how the team would deal with them.

    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • There was not enough work for me to do to get the feel of actually working at the comapny.

    3/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • 4/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • 3/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • There was not enough work coming in for my team to pass any on to me.

    2/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • There was not enough work coming in for my team to pass any on to me.

    2/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • As I am now studying a Masters in Real Estate I really feel like just being at Savills has given me the groundwork for my studies.

    4/5

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • The people in the office were very social and it was a nice atmosphere to work in.

    4/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • It was well organised in terms of work and feedback, but it might have been nice to have some more interaction with other interns as the setup of the office can isolate you if you are new.

    4/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • We had talks about other areas within the company and plenty of insight into how Savills works.

    4/5

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • 3/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • I would like to work at savills in the future as even though I was not given that much responsibility I feel a permanent place will be different in terms of workload and much more rewarding.

    4/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • The social side was good. I went out with my team for lunch and occasionally met up with the other interns too.

    4/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Savills office is in an expensive part of London!

    2/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Central London! need I say more? but again, quite expensive.

    4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • 2/5
