What attracted you to the Aon Graduate Programme?
I first heard about Aon from their sponsorship deal with Manchester United and started to research a little more about the company from there. I realised that they had a very well established Graduate programme from the start of my research and felt like their programme would be the one that supported me in the best way.
What have you learnt in your time at Aon?
I’ve learnt a huge amount since I’ve joint Aon! I could be here for days listing everything. I’d say one of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt since joining Aon is the importance of time management and being organised.
What does a typical day look like for you?
A typical day is difficult to describe. Every day varies. As a general rule I will begin my day by opening my emails and prioritising my tasks for the day into order of importance. Once I have my list prioritised I will begin to plan my day by allocating slots in my diary for each task that needs completing during the day.
What have you enjoyed most about your Graduate Programme?
The Graduate Programme is a fantastic networking opportunity. It provides you with exposure to senior employees across the company that you otherwise may not get exposed to at such early stages in your career.
What’s next for you at Aon?
That’s a great question. Right now I think my main aim is to get as much varied exposure and experience as possible. I honestly believe that from the Aon Graduate Scheme this has provided me with the perfect platform to achieve this goal.
What advice would you give to someone considering applying for the 2018 Aon Graduate or Internship programme? I think it’s vitally important to be yourself and ensure that you show off your personality during the application process. Your CV is there to show off your skills and accomplishments, I think it’s important to show some more about your personality during the rest of the application process.
