Last Thursday saw the first game of the season for Montagu Evans’ 5 a-side football team after a fairly extensive summer break. Rather than gently dusting off the cobwebs with a simple game to start with we found ourselves up against a notoriously physical CRBE team on a baking hot summer day. Remarkably Montagu Evans started quickest out the blocks scoring a number of quick goals. However, as the obvious lack of fitness took its toll along with the oppressive heat/lure of the beer garden next door we had a lapse in concentration and CBRE came back strongly in the final third. Fortunately we managed to hold on and record first win of what is hopefully another successful season for Montagu Evans, especially leading up to the start of the property 11 a-side league which Monties will be competing in for the first time in 5 years.
Away from the football field I’m now 3 months into my rotation in the Corporate Real Estate team within the professional services department. I have really enjoyed the mix of work in offer, providing advice to clients over their real estate strategies for companies such as McDonalds or the NHS. This advice can vary from individual properties to large portfolios, from central London to north of England. With summer holidays winding down and the new grads starting next week it is hard to believe that I have been here for a year it has gone so quickly, I’m looking forward to the second year ahead.
