The Business

In Insurance Consulting we advise and provide solutions to insurance companies on the assessment and management of risk. Our client base includes more than three-quarters of the world's leading insurers. Whether in life or property and casualty insurance. However, we are increasingly being called upon as risk specialists across a variety of industries.

The Role

Our 6 week Intern Programme is designed for penultimate year students.

An Internship at Willis Towers Watson will give you valuable real-world experience while you are still a student. It will enable you to apply your education in an environment that is both intellectually challenging and rewarding. At the end of your time with us, you will have a greater understanding of what we do and how closely our career offerings match your career ambitions. 

You will be treated in the same way as our new graduates receiving the same quality and quantity of work. It is the perfect opportunity to understand what you could expect if you joined our graduate programme the following year.

A role in Insurance Consulting is stimulating, challenging, exciting and extremely rewarding.
We require associates who are technically and mathematically minded, with the ability to solve intricate problems using innovative and proportionate approaches.

As consultants, it is not enough to have the technical skillset. The ability to communicate complex concepts to audiences from a variety of backgrounds is fundamental. We deal with actuaries, accountants, senior executives and other Board members. Each audience has different needs and knowledge and so we need to tailor our communications to suit.

We are looking for candidates that are excellent in their field and can apply their skillsets to work with clients to support them in their strategy and objectives. 

The Requirements 

As a minimum when applying you should meet our entry criteria: 

  • 2:1 Degree in a numerate discipline and 300 UCAS points (across 3 'A' levels or equivalent), OR
  • 2:1 Degree in any discipline and 300 UCAS points (across 3 'A' levels or equivalent) including Maths at grade A or B.

Start date for the UK Intern Programme will be the end of June 2017.
