Savills Operational Capital Markets (OCM) division advises clients in the multifamily (including Build to Rent), student accommodation, senior living and healthcare sectors across the UK and Europe.

We deliver valuation, consultancy, transactional and financing services across all of our sectors.

Our service lines include: Residential Investment & Development, Student Accommodation, Corporate Finance, National Development Consultancy, Debt Advisory, Europe, Healthcare, Senior Living, Residential and Student Valuations. There are currently more than 75 professionals in the division and we have significant growth ambitions. If successful, you would be a part of shaping some of the fastest growing and most exciting sectors in real estate.

The division works on many market-shaping mandates, which will provide you with full exposure to the lifecycle of an asset. We invest extensively in developing our people and are flexible in the qualification that you are looking to gain, be it RICS, CIMA, CFA, etc. You will be exposed to clients from the outset and given the platform to build a strong network both internally and externally.


  • Supporting senior members of the team in delivering exceptional client service.
  • Perform in-depth research into and analysis of UK and European markets.
  • Working independently and with fellow employees as part of a transactional or project team.
  • Build and manipulate cash flow models in excel.


Ahead of anything else, we look for distinctiveness, resilience, drive and diversity across our team – so it’s very important at every stage of the selection process that you take every opportunity to show us your individual flair, be honest and be yourself. In particular within Operational Capital Markets, we look for the following:

  • Excellent academics including an undergrad degree/master’s degree (2:1 minimum)
  • Strong analytical skills – both quantitative and qualitative
  • Effective communication style with the ability to interact with a variety of personality types
  • Aptitude towards using Microsoft excel (ability is not a prerequisite as that can be taught)
  • Basic understanding of finance
  • Ideally have demonstrable experience in real estate, be it development, investment, private equity or investment banking
  • European languages advantageous


Our training and development programme is highly regarded as one of the best in the property industry, and is geared towards enabling our graduates to reach their full potential.


Once you’ve successfully passed your qualification you’ll continue to receive training, mentoring and career development opportunities. We ensure that your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is current and that all staff are fully up-to-date with changes to legislation and business needs.
