About Our Opportunities

In order to apply candidates must be eligible to work in the UK or Republic of Ireland and have/expect to achieve a minimum 2.1 degree classification or equivalent in any degree discipline.

There are four primary areas we recruit into: 

  • Broking
  • Client Executive
  • Projects
  • Client Advisory Services 

These are in five locations:

  • London
  • Reading
  • Bristol
  • Manchester 
  • Dublin


Within broking you could be working within a specialty team to understand all the risks associated with a particular sector and then working with a team to broker a deal.

Client Executive 

As a Client Executive you’ll be liaising with your clients and understanding their business, the risks and what value looks like for them. You’ll then be in a position to advise on the best course of action for their risk management and work with the broking teams to make this happen. 


Working on projects means that you will gain exposure across multiple lines of insurance both internally and externally, allowing you to build an extensive network of talented professionals.

Client Advisory Services 

Working for Client Advisory Services, you will work developing and delivering innovative solutions which may include enhancement of risk management approaches, handling of complex claims and use of data-driven analysis to inform a client’s insurance strategy. In order to be considered for this area an A level in Maths or other numerate subject is preferable.

Who We Are Looking For

Our aim is to find the top graduates to grow their career with us. Our clients span just about every sector so your knowledge and experience can too. As such, the Marsh Graduate Development Programme is open to all degree disciplines as we’ll match you to a role that best uses your skill set and personality. 

In order to help us match your skills, throughout the Assessment Process we’re looking for key competencies including:

  • Leadership

  • Results-focused
  • Accuracy and awareness

Interested? Apply today for the Marsh Graduate Programme.
