CBRE Summer 2020 Internship Scheme 

Applications for the 2020 Summer Internship scheme will open in February 2020.


The programme offers an opportunity for you to gain first-hand experience of CBRE and the work we do for a month over the summer.

You will be working alongside current Graduates and Senior Professionals on a variety of projects, giving you a real feel for what life is like as a CBRE Graduate.

While gaining real-world experience and subsequently building a network of professional contacts, the programme’s supportive training schedule will ensure you accelerate.

You will work with other interns to complete an end of programme presentation and in preparation for this, you will receive communication, presentation and pitch skills training.

You will also gain an insight into how we support our clients and will have the opportunity to visit a client site – although, CBRE interns usually visit many with their direct team!

And of course, we have not forgotten that property is a social industry, so there will be opportunities to attend social events throughout the programme.

Internships are available for the following pathways and locations:


The CBRE Summer Internship Scheme offers the opportunity for top performers to be tracked through the Graduate recruitment process, attending an earlier assessment day for the 2020 Scheme (applicable to those eligible to apply).


You will be required to submit a 3 to 5 minute video via YouTube (the video does not have to be of yourself).

The application needs to be submitted to [email protected] along with the following details:

  • YouTube link
  • CV
  • Preference of dates July or August
  • Pathway choice
  • Preference of location

Once you have submitted your application, you will receive an automatic response confirming we have received your application.

This is the only recruitment stage and all applicants will be contacted in May to inform the outcome of your application.


Here is your opportunity to really shine, bring in your creativity and give us a snapshot that represents you.

We want you to have fun making the video and think about what will make your video stand out.

However, we are not looking for the next Steven Spielberg so grab anything that can video record and you are ready to go.

The following must be covered in your video content:

  • What attracted you to a career in property and why do you think you will succeed?
  • Discuss a drink or cocktail that you feel best describes you; your experiences and personality (think about what differentiates you).
  • Why should CBRE offer you a role on our Summer Internship Programme?
  • What do you hope to achieve at the end of the Internship?

Please be advised we will not answer technical enquiries in terms of uploading your video.
