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 the other interns who join in your cohort 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 networking social events throughout the programme.

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?
  • If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
  • Why should CBRE offer you a role on our Summer Internship Programme?
  • What do you hope to achieve at the end of the Internship?
  • Which one of CBRE recent deals interests you the most and why?

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