UK 300: top property employers
…as voted for by students and graduates
The UK 300 features the largest and most comprehensive annual survey of student opinion on graduate careers, employers and their own job hunts. The survey determines not only the most popular 300 graduate employers in the UK overall, but also the most popular graduate employers in a range of career sectors, including property.
The top graduate employers for property are listed in the table below. Savills and BNP Paribas Real Estate remain the two most popular, while Strutt & Parker climbs seven places to take the third stop. Elsewhere, Cushman & Wakefield and Foxtons are new entrants to the list.
The students and graduates surveyed who were interested in property careers:
- may well be interested in working internationally: a higher proportion of students specifically wanted to work for a large international employer than they did for any other size of employer.
- were most likely to start researching graduate careers in their final year, despite the number of internships aimed at penultimate-year students: 41% of final-year students waited until then to begin their career research; 35% of final-year students had started researching in their penultimate year; and 24% in their first year.
- were likely to be very active on LinkedIn, with 86% using the social media channel for careers purposes.
Percentages have been rounded.
Over 74,700 students and graduates took part in the Trendence UK Graduate Survey, which formed the basis of the results in the UK 300.
