"Despite only being an intern here for a short time I was given some fairly high level work. For instance, I was trusted to write a report which will be sent out to important clients."
Intern, London
"Although I am working in a seemingly slow period - the summer - the team have me working on a number of projects to increase my understanding of real estate investment."
Intern, London
"In my day-to-day work I update schedules for clients, shadow meetings and assist with inspections."
Capital Markets, Intern, London
"I have a varied role: I answer the telephones and direct calls, send emails, call potential buyers to book viewings, assist with brochure organisation and photograph selection, in addition to updating 'comparables' spreadsheets and greeting walk ins."
Intern, London
"There was a variety of tasks to do that differed day-to-day. They also varied in difficulty, which meant at times I was challenged, and at others I was just learning about the everyday work at the firm."
Intern, London
"As an intern my day-to-day role consisted of getting to grips with the basics of Landlord and Tenant Act, lease summaries, rent reviews, market analysis, availability schedules and various other reports."
Intern, London
"So far, I have been sat at a desk creating a database for African retail developments, and researching employment costs for the industrial sectors in several locations around Lancashire. That said, I do feel that this work is valuable and is going to be used by others."
Intern, London
"Although I felt that the workload could have challenged me more, because the market was pretty quiet, I was out and about viewing an array of interesting developments, which has given me a much clearer perspective on the dynamic London property market."
Intern, London
"My role has developed throughout my time here: in my first week with the valuation team I was at my desk helping out on Excel documents and research, and in my second week I was out and about on inspections more."
Intern, London
"I am shadowing members of the department, which has given me an understanding of their day-to-day tasks. My other work is varied: research, preparing reports and presentations and site visits."

"I shadowed a member of the team to gain an understanding of the work they undertake. I also compiled data and completed other non-technical tasks to aid team members. Each day I usually left the office for a building inspection or to run work related errands. I filled in my downtime by working on my project."
London
"From the first day I was given relevant real work which aided the team and allowed me to apply my academic studies to the work they carry out."
London
"My role involves assisting with day-to-day activities such as putting together deal resumes, brochures and the onsite measuring of properties."
London
"I was given a fair amount of responsibility early on which I really appreciated. My first day was spent sorting out the filing cupboard which became a running task throughout the two weeks but I didn't mind doing that too much as it has been complimented with all the other work I've been doing. I have been on site visits, attended viewings with the other negotiators and after the first five days was left to lead my own viewings with clients. I have done a couple of reports for my boss which included using Excel to display market-share data of the area I've been working in. I also have been working on a project to hand in at the end of my internship."
London
"Knight Frank try to get you involved as much as possible but there is a limit to what you can do due to the lack of training and length of time of the internship."
London
"On the whole the work has been very interesting. I have done a fair bit of filing, but to be expected on a placement like this one. I have visited a number of amazing properties and been exposed to many extremely powerful people in this industry."
London
"I was given a variety of tasks within different areas and for different people. There was a good overall spread of work. Also I was trusted with the responsibility of attending site visits independently."
London
"At every opportunity I have been asked to get involved with an appointment or a meeting. I was trusted to go on viewings and meet new potential clients. The office was not extremely busy, but that comes with the time of year, and perhaps if it had been, I wouldn't have got the attention that I did."
