About this role

“As a retail agency sandwich student you will be expected to assist with the general marketing of properties, drafting marketing details, attending viewings, speaking with interested parties and liaising with clients - along with many more tasks. Retail is an interesting and varied sector of surveying, where you will be involved with lots of different types of small to large properties”.

“One benefit of doing a sandwich placement is being able to experience your degree in action. We were often asked to read through leases at university which I now do almost every day. I know when I return to university I will have a greater depth of understanding about my course and hopefully this will benefit me. The placement could even lead to an early offer on the Savills Graduate Programme.”
