I can’t believe how quickly a year has flown by and that I am already in my third rotation!
Montagu Evans offers 4 6 –month rotations which can seem daunting at first, but as I move onto my third rotation I can see a great benefit in knowing the majority of the firm and getting a wide variety of work and all aspects of the industry. Thus far, I have been given the opportunity to work in the Rating department and Retail Management team, and am continually getting to work with new teams of people and broaden the depth of my knowledge.
I am now working in the Residential team which I am loving and extremely excited for what the next 6-months will hold. I am working alongside the viability team, land agency and development teams on a mixture of public/private sector projects. It offers an entirely different perspective to day-to-day life in the property world in comparison to retail management where I have moved on from.
Rotating enables you to really figure out where your skills lie and make informed decisions on which direction you want to focus your career in, as well as gaining a vast pool of knowledge in all different sectors of property allowing me to offer prospective clients a varied view on their issues.
I am lucky enough to be invited on my second away trip to Lisbon in a couple of weeks with the entire Development & Valuation Consultancy team. If my trip last year to Madrid with the Rating team is anything to go by it should be an extremely fun couple of days which will allow me to get to know my team and other colleagues better, along with a very large headache.
