Savills Industry Day 2016!

Pearson Business School students at Savills

Our Pearson Business School students recently attended an insightful industry day at Savills HQ. We caught up with a few of our students to find out how they found the day!

"The Savills industry day was a truly inspirational day that really made me question my future career. I found it particularly interesting hearing about each speaker's own personal career path, how some of them ‘fell’ into their career, their role and department, whereas others worked towards a clear direction. I found the talks from the women from both the PR and marketing departments to be really interesting as I am trying to understand whether to go into marketing or PR. The industry day at Savills has taught me to be more open minded about the companies I want to work for. I hadn't considered Savills before, but after Wednesday it is definitely high on my list of places that I would love to work."

"The day was a very interesting one and gave us a valuable insight into the different career options that were available within the company. I found this very insightful as the speakers explained the career paths that they took to get to the job they are in today, as well as explaining what their job involved. As I am studying an accountancy in business degree I found the finance talk very interesting as the speaker explained the long list of jobs that he performs, as well as what education and pathway he took to get to where he is today. The day was a wonderful insight to Savills and I personally feel that Savills would be a potential company that I would look to work with in the future based on what I have learned about them as a company from this day. Overall fantastic!"

"Savills certainly surprised me by offering drinks and food during the industry day. It was not expected and made me feel welcomed. It was very interesting to learn about the different departments at Savills and how they interact with each other, therefore creating an open and friendly working environment. The departments definitely are the 'engine' of the company and it made me realise the variety of opportunities Savills has to offer."
