Savills acts as trusted advisers to real estate clients in the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and Middle East. We attract, recruit and retain the best people in the property industry.
Right across the world, and in all areas of the property spectrum, our clients benefit from the entrepreneurial edge and exceptional service that our people exemplify. Through our advice and the transactional services we provide, we help our clients to maximise the value of their property – whatever and wherever it is.
We keep hold of such good people because of our supportive and collaborative ethos: we know that if you provide the right environment then people are much more likely to reach their potential. And when they do, it’s our clients that see the benefit.
So we give them the chance to flourish, do what we can to help them create a good balance work/life balance, and by placing a high value on diversity, we foster a stimulating, contemporary culture for them to work in.
As a result our people take the initiative, think creatively and act responsibly.
Everyone at Savills works hard to exceed clients' expectations. One of the advantages of a public company, however, is the meritocracy it creates. This ensures that there is a clear path for advancement with individual achievement recognised by increased financial rewards as well as by promotion. Sports and social activities provide a welcome balance to ensure that business is fun as well.
On top of this, our reputation rests on our contribution to all the communities we operate in. An intrinsic part of this is supporting charities and other community-related activities, locally and nationally.
And these aren’t just empty words. We were ranked number one employer in the property industry by The Times in 2007, 2008 and 2009, and named best property employer at The Times Graduate Recruitment Awards in both 2007 and 2008.
We are also piloting the Savills Leadership Programme in the UK. The programme sits at the heart of our talent management strategy, supporting the development of bright and ambitious individuals and equipping them to become Savills’ leaders of the future.
