At Montagu Evans each placement we sit is 8 months long which is great because it allows you to really see how projects develop. Not only is this very interesting but it enables you to learn a great deal more.
For the last few months I have been involved in the refurbishment programme in one of our shopping centres that we manage. This has involved liaising with contractors and negotiating with tenants over the changes taking place. As a result I have often has to carry out many site visits, This process is fantastic because allows you meet people in person. It can also be challenging as you are often forced to think on your feet! However, it is also very rewarding to see the difference the changes you implement make to people.
