Savills Insight demonstrates how we work, and what real estate means. It is a valuable chance for 1st year undergraduate students considering property amongst their options for a career, and especially to those who think Savills could be the employer of choice for them. Insight is also a great way to strengthen an application for our summer scheme.
Applications close at 8am on 27th February 2023
The Insight Programme will take place from the 3rd – 6th April 2023
Savills ‘Insight’ is an opportunity for first year students to shadow a Savills graduate for one week to learn about one of the following disciplines.
Across the programme, students during the week will undertake placements in our surveying (commercial, development, residential, affordable housing, operational capital markets), rural, building surveying, food & farming, forestry, sustainability, energy, environment and infrastructure and town planning teams.
Our aim is to provide a taste of the work of Savills graduates and show how the property industry works. During a placement we will offer the opportunity to attend virtual departmental talks to learn about other areas of the business, attend social events and meet directors from across Savills.
Savills Insight demonstrates how we work, and what real estate means. It is a valuable chance for students considering property amongst their options for a career, and especially to those who think Savills could be the employer of choice for them. Insight is also a great way to strengthen an application for our summer scheme (open to second year cognate and non-cognate students and third year non-cognate students) and the graduate programme (open to final year students and masters students).
This year we have decided to combine Commercial, Residential and Development applications, as we had many people apply for all three and not being sure which to choose at this stage. We will have one application for multiple teams and we will assign candidates to teams, based on thier application.

As an Energy Team within a real estate company our USP is understanding how land and property is used, the value that is attributed to real estate and how low carbon energy solutions can enhance property values to justify investment in net zero solutions. It is often the case that the best engineering solution for energy infrastructure is not the best property solution for the landlord or occupiers. As such, it is within this space that the Savills Energy Team looks to operate in partnership with architects, planners, developers, funders and specialist engineering design firms to find net zero solutions that improve the social aspects of a project and enhance property values.
