Summer Internship Scheme 

The programme offers an opportunity for a paid 4-week internship 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 programmes supportive training schedule will ensure you accelerate. You will work with other interns to complete an end of programme presentation and in preparation, 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. 

The programme offers the opportunity for top performers to be tracked through the Graduate recruitment process, attending an earlier assessment day for the 2019 Scheme (applicable to those eligible to apply).
