The team in London consists of around 20 consultants, with many of them starting in the team as graduates. The team comes from a range of diverse backgrounds, including areas such as mathematics, engineering, physics, banking and actuarial science, from universities both in the UK and abroad.
You will work in small project teams to deliver a wide range of actuarial and analytical solutions to Aon’s global client base; quickly gaining the knowledge and expertise to manage your own portfolio of projects.
Training and Development
From day one, you will be given responsibility on projects, assisting more senior members of the team on a range of areas. It is likely that you will be involved in projects from all product areas during your first few years at Aon. There will also be plenty of scope to specialise when you are ready.
You can apply to an internship programme in this area which will last for nine weeks over the summer. This will help to give you a feel for our culture and the opportunity to take on real responsibilities and contribute to our business. You’ll be assigned a mentor to guide you through the placement, while full technical training and business skills development will give you an understanding of the professional services world. In line with our Corporate Social Responsibility policies, we’ll also challenge you to make a difference. You’ll be involved in group charity projects that help local communities which will allow you to demonstrate your ability to work with clients, as well as develop team working and communication skills.
Although an internship does not guarantee a place on our Graduate Programme, many of our interns go on to a successful career with us and are automatically considered for a place on our Graduate Programme, with no further assessment required.
To apply for our Actuarial Consulting – General Insurance Stream, you will need strong analytical skills and the drive to deliver excellent work to our clients.
