Graduate opportunities

Text needed by Louise Chan (Requested 15 January 2010)

Undergraduates are encouraged to test their aptitude for a career with Savills during regular university vacations. They work as interns, being assigned to a variety of tasks designed to test their interest and challenge their capabilities. Long-term relationships with our company have developed from this programme.  

In the latter part of the University year, our Senior Directors and mid-management staff visit major universities and give introductory seminars for near-graduates. Students are then invited to apply for consideration in our Graduate Trainee Programme and places are highly sought-after. Hundreds of applications are received each year and all prospects are carefully considered, with those short-listed being given final interviews with senior management.

Successful candidates then embark on a two-year program of rotational assignments in various departments and their development is monitored. At the conclusion of their training they have the opportunity to further their career in the business area for which they have shown most promise and which aligns with their own preference.

At Savills, we believe in motivating everyone to develop their potential and to take on responsibilities and new challenges when circumstances permit. Regular staff appraisals enable line managers and individuals to review progress, identify areas for development and explore potential.
