Aon Graduate Scheme and Jobs

Aon Graduate Scheme

“You might not be too familiar with our name, but Aon is an organisation of incredible size and scope. Our business is professional services. We are the world’s #1 insurance broker, #1 provider of reinsurance and #1 in human resource consulting. Worldwide, Aon employs over 50,000 people who use their specialist knowledge and industry expertise to help our clients grow. Across the UK, we have 7,000 employees in 30 offices.

Our services include:

Insurance Broking

Insurance and risk management is the cornerstone of every company’s capital structure. A poorly constructed programme leaves an organisation vulnerable to major risks; a well-designed one frees it to pursue its vision without having to hoard financial capital or maintain unusually high levels of liquidity. At Aon, we help our clients identify their risks and ensure they are provided with the best possible cover for their needs.

Employee Benefits

Employee benefits range from healthcare and pensions to shopping vouchers and holidays. A well-managed, flexible, employee benefits programme will ensure employees are rewarded appropriately and are economically secure. Our experts advise our clients on pensions administration, employee benefits programmes and cost-effective, efficient HR solutions.

Actuarial Consulting

Aon actuarial consultants use mathematical and statistical modelling to make financial sense of the future. We assess risks in both the pensions and general insurance arenas, helping our clients make long-term economic forecasts and evolve with market conditions”.

Graduate Opportunities at Aon.

“The Aon UK Graduate Scheme has been designed to identify and develop the future stars of our business. We want graduates who can demonstrate their enthusiasm and potential, and are looking to graduate with a minimum 2:1 degree or equivalent.

Aon recruit graduates into five Streams. 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? Aon’s business is to provide the answers.

As well as graduate opportunities, we offer paid summer internships. Lasting 8-10 weeks, these provide students in their penultimate year at university with an understanding of our culture and the chance to gain valuable experience in the profession that’s of interest to them”.

Aon Graduate Scheme Salaries & Benefits

Training
There are a number of core skills that we will expect you to bring, such as numeracy, an analytical mind and consultancy skills, but we don’t expect you to be the finished article when you join us. A hunger to learn is vital in order to benefit from our policy of giving people early responsibility.
Our Development Programmes will fuel your passion for knowledge and improvement. All new joiners receive centralised training and networking opportunities. These will help you develop your understanding of all our businesses and improve your general business acumen, equipping you with the professional skills you will need to be successful.
We’ll do all we can to help you to succeed. Your technical and on-the-job training will take place in the individual Streams and be supported locally. We also appreciate that gaining qualifications isn’t easy. That’s why we offer comprehensive training support to people in our Graduate Programme who are studying for professional exams including professional study and revision sessions and study days. There are also financial bonuses for passing exams.
Professional Studies
We’re committed to your ongoing development. That’s why we fully support professional study and qualifications. Most areas of our business will require you to study as part of your Development Programme but some qualifications are optional. Professional qualifications commonly studied by our people include:
Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)
Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute
Chartered Insurance Institute (CII)
Pensions Management Institute (PMI)
We recognise studying while learning a new role can be difficult – and we expect you to progress quickly. So for many of our positions, our study packages are generous, both in terms of study leave and exam bonuses, to ensure your success.
Benefits
As a market leader in all our businesses, we are able to offer our people a highly attractive reward package. In addition to a competitive salary and outstanding development prospects, you will benefit from:
