Grant Property Internship

Grant Property are searching for interns to join our experienced investment company . The internship runs throughout the academic year and offers the opportunity to join our full time summer internship, with applications opening in January and closing at the end of March. This is a unique opportunity for a student who wants experience in a corporate environment and the property industry, and who feels comfortable leading and holding a position of responsibility.

Your Opportunity

Our year long, part time paid internship will be focused on education and communication, with the successful applicant gaining  valuable insight into all aspects of the property investment industry, as well as providing a contact point for both student and Grant Property.  This internship is available for those students going onto their second and third years of study.

There are no subject requirements, this opportunity is open to all. We are looking for vivacious, outgoing people to join our team to learn and contribute to a global business. Successful applicants will be comfortable meeting and conversing with new people, eager to learn and full of ideas.

Development:

Alongside this year long part time internship, we are also offering successful applicants the opportunity to apply for a full time paid summer internship. The summer interns will be selected from the pool of successful interns.

Our summer interns will also have the opportunity to apply for our Grant Property scholarship: a nominated amount will be donated to the successful applicant to assist with their studies and contribute to their academic journey.

At Grant Property, we pride ourselves on fostering the next generation of talent, and, as shown by our recent Investors in Young People Good Practice Award, it is a goal we take very seriously.

 

 

Investors in Young People

We at Grant Property take our commitment to Young People very seriously as we recognise that opportunities for Young People benefit both the company and the individual. We have taken interns from the Saltire Foundation, apprentices from the QA Apprenticeship Scheme and recruit Young People when filling specific positions within our organisation. Our future plans for the Grant Property Student Board are another example of our belief that Young People are an important asset for our future. Young People are given opportunities within our company to learn and progress on their career paths, gaining vital experience along the way and therefore assisting in realising their full potential. Their support is a priority to our company, as are their personal journeys. Many senior members of staff were recruited as Young People and have grown through our business to achieve great things and further exemplify how we ‘spot and grow talent from within’. Grant Property recognise that Young People are the future of our company and therefore desire to encourage and nurture their talents.

Testimonials

Interning during the summer of 2015 at Grant Property was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience into the world of business. Working alongside the different teams and getting first hand experience of the requirements of maintaining a successful business was fascinating. Grant Property were excellent at setting up opportunities to meet with social media/marketing companies to learn more about the commercial aspect of the business as well as involving me in the day to day work. Because of this experience, I am looking forward to being more engaged in business and entrepreneurship in the future.

Grant Property was a warm and welcome place to work. Not only were my coworkers very friendly, but the internship gave me a huge range of opportunities to develop my professional skills. The internship wasn't just confined to the office, our boss Paula made sure that our learning was expanded with "away days", which had us visit other businesses associated with Grant Property all over Scotland.
