Summer Scheme 2021
Savills 'Summer Scheme' is an internship opportunity for second year cognate (RTPI or RICS accredited degree course) students and final year non-cognate students to work alongside a Savills graduate for two weeks to learn about one of the following disciplines.
- Affordable Housing
- Building & Project Conusltancy
- Food & Farming
- Operational Capital Markets
- Town Planning
On our application form, we also offer students with the opportunity to apply to one of our European offices. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we will not be able to offer this in 2021.
As a Summer Scheme student, you will experience what it’s like to be on our graduate programme and receive the same exposure, based within a team for the two weeks. Therefore, you will have the opportunity to gain a wide range of experience. You will be exposed to directors and also clients, learning from the current graduates and various members of the team.
Throughout the time that you are in the business, you will attend departmental overviews, to give you the best insight into our various service lines and a better understanding of both the industry and the business.
Before the pandemic, there would have been opportunities to network in person with other students, current graduates and directors within the business, whether this is a drinks event, rounders in the park or a networking lunch.
We will still be offering networking opportunities but the format will be adapted in accordance with government guidelines and may include virtually.
What we’re looking for:
Ahead of anything else, we look for individualism and diversity, so it's very important at every stage of the selection process that you take every opportunity to show us what you're really like. Be honest and above all, be yourself.
