What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Demonstrate your enthusiasm for the role and sector. You don't necessarily need a lot of previous work experience, but if you show you can adapt yourself to the job then it will help. You can build on skills developed elsewhere and show how they can be transferred and assist you in the role you are applying for.
Try and get on the Savills Summer Scheme or Insight Scheme. I applied to the Savills Summer Scheme (a 1 month paid internship) with only 2 weeks of work experience in the sector from 2 years previously. I got onto the Summer Scheme and completed it. A month or two after I was invited to interview for a graduate planner job and was successful. The Summer Scheme gave me the chance to know that I really wanted to work for Savills and that the company and ethos fitted my personality. It also gave Savills the chance to see if I was right for them. Either way, the Summer Scheme or Insight Scheme will give you a great deal of experience of working in a large professional planning consultancy and benefit your CV.
Do you have any interview tips?
Remember that Savills planning is consultancy based and is very client focused. So demonstrate you are client focused as well as commercially minded. Along with a good enthusiasm for planning and property.
