RECENT WORK EXPERIENCE
An example of how The OC Network can help you on the path to your career.
Last June The Network was contacted by an OC needing work experience in the property industry. The OCS was able to put her in touch with OC Richard Winter (Loveday, 1982-1987) who found Jemima (South, 2011-2016) a role in their Guildford office. See below the feedback from both sides following what was a truly positive experience for both parties:
The Savills Guildford team very much enjoyed having Jemima in their office over the summer period.
Jemima supported our administrator, carrying out all tasks diligently and efficiently.
No task was ever too much and she was keen to help and assist whenever and wherever possible.
Jemima carried out viewings, made call outs with the team to applicants and helped our administrator with their yearly compliance audit.
She was a pleasure to work with and the Savills team would love to have her back.
When I started work with Savills I had no previous experience of working in an office or in any sector of the property market.
The team in Guildford were so friendly and helpful. They gave me really good opportunities to learn and to see different areas of estate agency.
I quickly realised that this was something that I wanted to pursue and applied to study Real Estate at the Royal Agricultural University at Cirencester.
I am loving the course and having had some practical experience through Savills has been so helpful that I am currently averaging a first over my modules!
I can't thank Savills, and in particular Richard Winter, enough for the opportunities I have had which have set me on the path to an interesting career.
