Role Description

conducting market research on purpose built student accommodation in London and other parts of United Kingdom; Completing market report for Greenwich and York; Updating Group owned database on development pipeline; assisting on team presentation.

    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I felt that I was given real responsibilities and very challenging tasks to complete, and my team members were very kind and helpful.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • The team I was working with was very friendly and extremely help. many of my team members volunteered to teach me useful concepts and methods used in real estate practice.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • The feedbacks i got from the team director was very valuable for understanding how I have performed and what side of business suits me best.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Most of the time I am quite occupied which I think is very good.


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I conducted independent market research and completed market reports for two cities, which I think was some very rewarding experiences.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • The market research skills I developed and the business awareness I built during the placement is certainly very beneficial for my degree work and future career


    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • we have a group of very sociable and fun people in the team, so despite the fact that people are very busy with their tasks, we had a lot of fun


  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • The scheme was very well organised in general, especially considering the fact that we had a number of talks covering different aspects of real estate practice. However more social events with graduates and fellow interns would have been a plus.


  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • I think I was given sufficient training to complete my tasks, and some extra training to help me to built a fuller picture. I think for a 4 week program, this amount of support was more than anyone could have expected.


  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • Company Parties/Events


  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • under the current market condition, competition for a position in Savills would be fierce, but with the experience I have, I think I am in a relatively good position for getting into the Grad program.


    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • most fellow interns were very active people who are willing to take part in company organised, or self organised events


  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • London is quite an expensive place, but you get nice experiences for your money.


  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • 5/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • 4/5
