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 65,000 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; captives or health & 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.
We’ve recently moved our global headquarters to the UK. Here we rely on 6,500 employees across 30 offices to uphold our hard-won reputation for excellence, insight and outstanding service delivery. It’s the skills, knowledge and attitude of these people that help us do what we do best. So, if you’re looking for a sure-fire way to start your career and have a 2:1 degree or higher, we’d like you to join them.
We recruit summer interns and graduates into six Streams:
UK companies presently have over £1 trillion invested in pension schemes, more than the rest of Europe put together. A market leader in actuarial consulting, Aon has been advising companies and trustees on their pension schemes for over sixty years. Our actuarial consultants specialise in advising our clients to help them manage the associated financial and operational risks.
The biggest global financial crisis for more than 70 years has highlighted the critical importance of sound risk and capital management. We help insurance companies to optimise the financing of their capital at risk by devising and implementing solutions that integrate exposure, coverage terms, volatility and risk appetite.
Insurance reinsurance and risk management
Life is full of risk; it can’t be controlled, but it can be managed. Our Insurance, Reinsurance and Risk Management Stream predicts and spreads risk so in the event of major catastrophes economies can keep going and people can get on with their lives. For example, Aon co-sponsors Tropical Storm Risk (TSR), which provides real-time mapping and prediction of tropical cyclone windfields worldwide.
As the world leader in Investment Consulting, Aon has been advising employers and governments on their pensions schemes and other assets for over 60 years. Today, we provide a wide range of clients with expertise that extends from setting their investment strategies and the day-to-day management of their investment portfolios, through to corporate transactions and transfers of assets from one investment manager to another.
Health & benefits broking and consulting
More and more organisations are offering flexible, financial benefits that can be tailored to their employees’ lifestyles to reward and retain talent. Aon is a leader in the design, implementation and management of modern, financial benefits programmes. In fact, we have been voted the best financial benefits advisory firm for the past four years by readers of Business Insurance magazine.
Global Risk Consulting – Captive Solutions
Made up of three core businesses, our Global Risk Consulting practice delivers a fully integrated range of risk management solutions designed to optimise the risk profile of our clients. Risk Consulting professionals deliver everything from actuarial and analytics activities to enterprise risk management, forensic accounting and risk financing solutions. Our Risk Control, Claims and Engineering practices provide expertise in property and casualty risk control, claims consulting, fire protection and energy risk engineering. Finally, our Captive and Insurance management experts are widely recognised as the leading captive manager, with local capabilities in over 30 countries.
Depending on the area you join, you’ll be using your numeracy, analytical abilities and strong customer service skills to help clients address key questions that affect the running and growth of their businesses. How can risk be predicted and spread to minimise the impact of natural or man-made catastrophes? How can financial markets effectively manage their risks? Where can employers invest to improve the value of their pension schemes? Will a company be able to meet its pension obligations decades down the line? How can it provide a benefits programme that rewards employees and represents a shrewd business investment for the employer? Whatever the question, it’s our business to provide the answer.
