Property Investment Summer Internship

Many large corporate businesses manage their own pension funds through a variety of different investment channels. This multi-national, multi £billion turnover organisation is offering the opportunity for an undergraduate interested in a career in property investment to learn how they manage their portfolio through this 10 week paid summer internship in central London.

Working with a close-knit and experienced team, you will gain exposure to the many varied duties associated with managing both direct and indirect portfolios as well as carrying out valuable research on behalf of the team. In particular, you will gain exposure to:

  • Attending and minuting meetings with external fund managers
  • Compiling and reconciling performance reports
  • Maintaining deal logs
  • Income risk analysis activities.

The team will be looking for your input into their current filing structure as well as your support in researching new sectors and reviewing the current state of the property market.

To be successful in this role you must be a motivated self-starter with a genuine interest in a career in property investment. You must be curious with the confidence to contribute your own ideas in discussions about the fund. At the end of the internship, you will be invited to present to your team about your time with them which will require good presentation skills and accurate written skills. You will be invited to comment, sometimes in writing on quantitative data so you must be confident with numbers and analytical in your approach.

Applicants will be studying towards an undergraduate degree ideally in their penultimate or final year of study. You may be completing a Property or Investment related degree or you may equally be studying in a different area. As long as you can demonstrate a genuine interest in this field and an aptitude to produce the level of research required for the role then your application will be welcomed.

Application Process:

Please use the personal statement part of your Step profile to demonstrate your interest in and suitability for the role as described above. Your supporting statement should be no more than 500 words and should be tailored to this role.

Telephone screening is due to take place towards the end of March when you will be given further information about the identity of the employer, with face to face interviews taking place at the beginning of April.

We reserve the right to close the role early so your early application is encouraged.
