Interview preparation

Although a lively discussion can be fun and stimulating for everyone involved, there's no escaping the fact that being interviewed for a Savills graduate traineeship can be a challenging experience. But there are plenty of straightforward things you can do to increase your chances of success:

  • Be prepared to answer a great many questions about your experience to date - particularly elements you have mentioned in your application form, covering letter and CV

  • Look carefully at the list of competencies we value in the 'What we're looking for' section of the site. Come up with some examples which demonstrate you possess them - possibly from past work you have undertaken or your academic life, but also from extra-curricular and social activities, sports, travel and more

  • Our dress code is smart office wear

  • Leave plenty of time for the interview. We may want you to meet other people from the business, so don't be in a rush to leave

  • We expect you to show good current awareness of market events, such as recent major deals- so do your research
