2004 / 5 GRADUATE RECRUITMENT PROGRAM
Jones Lang LaSalle (NYSE: JLL) is an international, multi-cultural and multi-disciplined organization and we require employees with a diverse range of skills from a variety of backgrounds. In an ever-changing business environment we need to anticipate the future needs of our clients by recruiting people with different strengths and aptitudes.
However, the academic prowess is not enough on its own! Our business requires people who are team players, problem solvers, original thinkers, people who are naturally conceptual and analytical, who possess enquiring minds and thrive on the pressure of deadlines. Equally important are excellent communication and interpersonal skills, integrity and tenacity. We are a people business in a service industry therefore relationship building is integral to our success.
Whether you are a graduate with a real estate or other relevant* degree we want to hear from you. However we do stipulate that the minimum grade achieved is 3.0 and there is also a requirement for CET English level 6. We encourage applications from outside of Shanghai / Beijing / Guangzhou* (delete where not applicable) however you must be eligible to work in Shanghai / Beijing / Guangzhou* (delete where not applicable) to apply.
* Other relevant degrees are economics, finance disciplines
The Graduate Recruitment Program will enable you to work in various areas of the business (usually two 12 month seats). We recruit into the following business areas:
- Office Agency / Tenant Representation
- Strategic Consulting
You will spend your first two weeks on an intensive interactive induction programme designed by the business. You will be involved in practical hands-on exercises including a project that will require you to make a presentation to your client (a panel of our senior directors). It’s a work hard, play hard programme, with opportunities to meet and socialize with a variety of people who will help you with your development throughout your training program.
By the end of your two week induction you will be ready to “hit the ground running” and will certainly have a clear understanding of the firm you have joined, its structure, its values and its goals. You will know your trainee intake and the current trainees who went through this process last year. An excellent start to your networking!
Our training schemes will provide you with a solid foundation on which to build a career in real estate. The jobs you will do involve lots of responsibility and client contact and enable you to develop all your skills.
All trainees will complete 30 CPS (continuous professional development) hours per annum in the following areas: real estate knowledge, financial awareness, business writing skills, basic presentation skills, negotiation skills, financial analysis, general business skills and IT training course. Continuous Professional Development talks will be given by industry professionals, and technical training provided within each business unit.
Placement rotation – each trainee will be recruited directly into a business line. The first seat will be in the hiring division for one year followed by 1 more seat rotation in other business line to enable each trainee to gain an overview of the Firm.
