Where we lead, the industry follows

About Aon

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 69,000 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; health & benefits broking and consulting; captive solutions or human capital consulting. We are the world's #1 insurance broker, #1 provider of reinsurance and #1 in human capital consulting. Our size, global network and emphasis on innovation mean where we lead, the industry follows.

Risk

We assess the economic, political and geographical risks associated with our clients' companies. Our knowledge helps clients understand how these risks can affect their business, along with ways to mitigate risk and capitalise on it. Insurance and risk management is the cornerstone of every company's capital structure. A poorly constructed risk management programme leaves an organisation constrained and vulnerable to major risks; a well-designed programme allows 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.

Healthcare

We develop health care plans that provide clients with the best, most cost-effective benefits packages for their employees. Our customised plans give employees options for managing their health and promoting overall wellness. 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.

Talent

We create strategies that help our clients attract, manage and retain top-performing employees, as well as plan for transition. Our data-driven approach gives clients a tailored plan for building employee engagement, cultivating leadership and improving HR processes. Human Capital Consulting helps our clients get the best from their people, and retain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Retirement

We design retirement plans that benefit our clients as well as their employees. Our financial and regulatory expertise helps us to create customised pension plans that are stable over the long and short term. Our Actuarial Consultants use mathematical and statistical modelling, along with their industry specific expertise, to identify potential risks to our clients and assess the possible impacts of those risks. Sharing this expertise in a professional way, tailored to the specific characteristics and needs of each client, helps them make financial sense of the future.

Data and Analytics

We use data to help our clients make smart, informed decisions. Our significant investments in data platforms and expert analysis allow us to see things competitors don't, giving our clients a competitive edge in every industry we touch.

Capital

We provide clients with access to funds or investments that help grow their financial interests. Our resources help clients free up or access capital so it can be used to expand, restructure or rebuild their business assets.

Our Investment Consultants bring real-world investment experience when addressing client issues. We work across a wide range of investment options, ranging from investment advice, such as the need to use swaps and derivatives or how to use hedge funds appropriately, to much more direct help. Our sophisticated modelling tools help us to make informed choices about investment strategies and tailor our solutions to clients' needs.

100% committed to developing your potential

Our Early Careers Development Programmes have been designed to identify and develop the future stars of our business. We want people who can demonstrate their enthusiasm and potential, and who have a strong academic background.

We recruit students into three different Programmes depending on your entry point: Apprenticeships, Summer Internships and Graduates. Once you have decided which Programme is right for you, you will have a choice of a technical Stream. Depending on the area you join, you'll be using your numeracy, analytical abilities and strong communication skills to help clients address key questions that affect the running and growth of their businesses. What will be the impact of rising life expectancy? How would the collapse of the Eurozone affect the world economy? Will we see an increase in anti-globalisation protests? Can we look forward to a rise in living standards? Or should we all be preparing for a fall? Aon's business is to provide the answers.

Real responsibility

Early responsibility is a way of life at Aon. You'll very quickly become a technical specialist in your particular area, meeting clients and advising them on our market-leading products far sooner than you would in many other organisations. Our training will fully equip you to make an immediate impact on our business. Your Development Programme will complement your Stream-specific 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. All in all, everything is in place to help you forge a career in which challenges and rewards will come in equal measure.
