Aon Apprenticeships - apply now


Aon Apprenticeships - apply now You almost certainly think of Manchester United when you think of Aon. A long-time shirt sponsor and still one of the key Man U partners, Aon is also a large, global business with its roots in insurance, reinsurance and consultancy. In fact, there are more than 65,000 people working at Aon's offices around the world. 

It has now opened its Apprenticeship programme for 2017. The starting salary is from £17-19k per annum and there are in the following locations:

Aberdeen 
Birmingham 
Bristol
Chelmsford
Farnborough
Glasgow
Leeds
London
Manchester
Newcastle
Reading 
Redhill 

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 their businesses. What will be the impact of rising life expectancy? How would the collapse of the Eurozone affect the world economy? Aon’s business is to provide the answers.

At Aon, Apprentices have great development opportunities. Here are the kinds of things that you can be expected to get involved with:

  • Supporting the delivery of client-facing transactional service activities 
  • Assisting in the day-to-day running of client risk and insurance programmes 
  • Contributing proactively to client satisfaction, retention and profitability 
  • Carrying out administrative tasks contributing to the broking process 
  • Inputting data accurately to maintain management information
Networking 
Being part of a network makes sense for an Apprentice, and you will meet Apprentices from all areas of Aon in the UK, helping you navigate its business and grow a support network from day one. 
 
You'll have a mentor – an experienced colleague who can help you out with career guidance, specific issues or any general thoughts or queries you have. 

Business seniors will also be actively interested and involved in your development. 

The Aon Early Careers Team are there to help smooth the way, open doors and advise you on developing your knowledge, skills and prospects.


Progression 
Aon prepares you for success with lots of early responsibility and development opportunities. By learning on the job, you’ll quickly become a technical specialist with sound business knowledge, able to support account managers and consultants and help clients far sooner than you would in other organisations.
