Few things are certain in life. Economic upheaval, political crises, natural disasters – and plenty more besides – all mean the world can be full of surprises. At Aon, we draw on the expertise of over 72,000 people to help the biggest names in business plan for every eventuality – be it in pensions, general insurance, insurance reinsurance and risk management, investment consulting or health and benefits broking and consulting. We are the world’s #1 insurance broker, #1 provider of reinsurance and #1 in human resource consulting. Our size, global network and emphasis on innovation mean where we lead, the industry follows.
One of the key differentiators between Aon and our competitors is our people and how they behave with our clients and each other. How we do things is just as important as what we do.
We recruit graduates and summer interns into seven streams:
• Actuarial Consulting – Pensions
• Actuarial Consulting – General Insurance
• Insurance Reinsurance & Risk Management
• Investment Consulting
• Health & Benefits – Broking & Consulting
• Human Capital Consulting
• Global Risk Consulting – Captive Solutions
• Inpoint Solutions
We have approximately 60 Graduate vacancies and 60 Internships across the UK. There are opportunities UK-wide, depending on your chosen stream.
Our graduate development programme will complement your technical training, helping you to build your business knowledge, develop professional skills and grow effective relationships with clients and colleagues. We also provide full study support for professional qualifications.
Our paid Internships last for 9 weeks over the summer. They are designed to give you an insight into our business, an understanding of our culture and an invaluable opportunity to help us forge lasting legacies with worthy causes.
During your placement, you will be contributing to our business, taking on real responsibilities and having to manage your work effectively. You will have comprehensive training to give you the necessary technical knowledge and business skills. A mentor will be assigned to you to help guide you through your placement and answer any questions you have about your work and our business. Technical training and business skills will be a core part of your programme, ensuring you leave us with a better understanding of the professional world and how best to make your way in it.
Although an Internship does not guarantee a place on our Graduate Programme, a significant proportion of our summer interns have gone on to successfully embark on a career with us.
If you are at university, predicted to gain at least a 2:1 or equivalent qualification, and have a high level of commercial awareness, lots of ambition and an enthusiastic approach, we want to hear from you.
Aon don’t operate fixed application deadline for our UK opportunities, although we will begin assessing candidates during Autumn 2015 so we encourage early applications.
