What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Unlike many other big firms they are not looking for carbon copy standard issue grads. Graduates are so varied in background, skills and personality so don't try and be something you're not.
All aspects of your work experience are important. Don't be afraid to mention you ran a student bar or worked in a shop - this is all transferrable experience and skills and gives a better idea of the sort of person you are. Just make sure you can extract the useful aspects and justify. e.g. working in a shop gave you a strong idea of occupier's needs in retail and consumer patterns etc.
There are also occasional non-rotational roles based on a team's specific needs. These are sometimes advertised but also sometimes speculative so show initiative and get in touch with HR or a team you are interested in.
Do you have any interview tips?
Research as much as possible about press coverage and instructions Colliers are working on. Interview questions can be quite technical so have a base knowledge of economy/finance. Even if you are yet to know the technicalities of property service - these are basic things that show you are well-rounded.
