Actuarial Graduate Programme – Insurance Consulting at Willis Towers Watson

Where: United Kingdom

Deadline: December 31, 2019

Type: Graduate

View more

About the Company:

Main business: : Business, consulting and general management

Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW) is a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company that helps clients around the world turn risk into a path for growth. With roots dating to 1828, Willis Towers Watson has over 40,000 employees serving more than 140 countries.

About the Role:

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.

What Will I Be Doing Day to Day?

As a project based business, no two days are the same. Our graduates will start to experience this straight away, and see this continue as their careers develop.

Graduates will tend to be involved in 2-3 client projects at any one time. You will be involved in regular project meetings which will help you to understand the overall project and where your work fits in as well as providing a space for you to report your progress and raise issues. Being able to communicate your technical work to others who may not be familiar or involved is the key foundation for every actuarial consultant.

Depending on the project and client you may also get involved in communicating with peers at the client’s office, working directly alongside clients or attending meetings/calls.

Our graduates experience training during the first few months of joining Willis Towers Watson, which supplements a steep curve of on-the-job learning.
