Human Capital Solutions Consulting

Introduction to the Stream

People are our most valued asset at Aon. We want to attract, motivate and retain the best people; and so, do our clients.

Every organisation, industry and economy around the world is confronting more disruption than ever before. The pressure to accelerate growth, embrace digitisation and reduce risk are converging to create unprecedented volatility. With industry lines rapidly blurring, companies in every sector are competing for a finite group of pivotal talent including technical, creative and business talent. Having the right people is key to maximising business growth and managing volatility.

Aon’s Human Capital Solutions practice helps works collaboratively with clients to understand the people, jobs and rewards they need to succeed in the digital age. We are partners and trusted advisors to all types of companies, from the largest global organisations and FTSE 100 household names, to smaller emerging companies and companies in between to support their people agenda.

Within our Human Capital Consulting practice, we recruit graduates into the following specialist service lines:

  • Rewards Solutions: advising Board and management teams to ensure that pay and benefits are aligned with the organisation's business strategy, culture and are competitive in their markets
  • Performance: Benchmarking the organisation's operational, financial and customer performance.

Whether you choose to specialise in rewards solutions (all employee or executive reward) or performance, you will be working with a diverse range of companies from across the UK and Europe

Your learning and development will be fast-paced and hands-on to give you the necessary technical knowledge and client management skills, with the opportunity to develop client relationships early on in your career. We encourage our people to take ownership for managing their own careers and building their client base.

The constantly evolving business landscape requires companies to think differently and change how they have operated in the past. As a result, our consultants have varied and challenging roles. You will need to be naturally curious, enthusiastic and highly motivated to find solutions. Data is the foundation of our advice and you will need to be highly numerate with strong analytical skills. A minimum of a 2:1 in any discipline, and the ability to build positive collaborative relationships are essential.
