In October, around 450 students, young surveyors and property professionals attended the Sociable Surveyors 2015 Awards in London. The Sociable Surveyors coordinated event provided the opportunity for students to win internships at top surveying companies around the UK.

From the 50 successful winners of internships, BSc (Hons) Building Surveying student Esther Cann Anaman won the prize of a two-week internship with Malcom Hollis. The prize allowed Esther to further herself within the industry both developing new skills and creating industry links which will prove valuable on graduation.

Esther was ecstatic about her achievement and spoke highly of the scheme saying: "The application process was very straightforward, it involved recording a 90-second video detailing my knowledge, skills, experience and why I wanted to apply.

"At the time I was a first year BSc (Hons) Building Surveying student and I had no background in the industry but I was committed and eager to gain the relevant experience.

"I applied to numerous internship schemes and amazingly I won the Malcolm Hollis internship which I was extremely shocked and surprised about. I arranged to do a two-week placement at the Leeds office and I had a fantastic time there.

"The role included shadowing surveyors on projects such as assisting dilapidations work and party wall matters. I also analysed and reviewed leases and measured buildings on AutoCAD.

"My two weeks at Malcolm Hollis were very enjoyable as it gave me a chance to develop my technical skills, improve my commercial awareness and work in industry with other property professionals. Everyone at the office was exceptionally helpful and made me feel part of the team.

"I would definitely recommend the Sociable Surveyors internship scheme to other Property Development and Management students because it is an excellent opportunity to gain industry experience and enhance your skills. It was extremely beneficial to me as not only did it enhance my CV but it also increased my confidence and interpersonal skills."
