Job Description

Insurance, Reinsurance and Risk Management: Graduate Programme

Across the global economy, unprecedented volatility is creating new risks and opportunities — which is a key reason why insurance, reinsurance and risk management are the cornerstones of every company’s capital structure. We help our clients identify their risks, ensuring they have the best possible cover to mitigate them.

As well as identifying risk for our clients, we also predict and spread risk. This means that, if major catastrophes hit, economies can keep going and people can get on with their lives. As an Aon graduate, you’ll play a key role in making this essential work happen.

We’ll help you learn about our business and the broking process, develop your professional skills and build strong relationships with clients and colleagues alike. In return, on top of your salary and benefits, we’ll make sure you’re fully supported to study for ACII professional qualifications.


London and Chelmsford

The Role

You’ll join our commercial risk solutions and reinsurance solutions team, playing a crucial role in delivering dynamic, bespoke intellectual and financial capacity to our clients all around the world.

Our graduates experience the full lifecycle of our business — from trading risk in the market and understanding the importance of claims through to winning new business. You’ll focus on developing client-management skills too, and build relationships with a broad spectrum of people — including clients, our own industry specialists and members of the global reinsurance markets.

Training and Development

Our 19-month graduate programme allows you to immerse yourself a range of placements and classes of business before you choose what to specialise in. You’ll join either our insurance or reinsurance arm of the business, where you’ll gain exposure to both technical and client-facing roles — this will help you to understand the specialist advice our clients rely on, and how we share it with them. Placements can include broking, claims, client management and specialist project roles.

To make sure your knowledge keeps pace with your ambition, we’ll also support your development by fully supporting you as you study for the industry-recognised ACII qualification.

After the graduate programme, what’s next?

Thanks to the variety of services we offer our clients, and the diverse range of clients we manage, there’s no such thing as a typical career path at Aon.

During the graduate programme, you’ll be encouraged to explore a number of opportunities across the business in a wide breadth of areas. These may involve joining specialist content teams to develop specific expertise, or gaining broader experience as part of wider business units outside the core role.

There’s also a wide range of roles and responsibilities available to you to take on beyond the graduate programme. For example, a number of our graduates continue their training and development while working towards successful careers as brokers and managing their own clients.
