Get A Better Understanding of the Early Careers Opportunities:

We have graduate roles across many different locations across the UK and Ireland. The roles span across our Health, Wealth and Careers business. The graduate programme provides candidates with a choice of qualifications and a pathway for them to decide what way they want their career to go.  Our graduate pathway programme is a great opportunity to develop your skills across our health wealth and career business to develop a strong consulting career where you can deliver solutions that have a real impact on the future of major organisations and individuals every day.

Have you got what it takes to join our people shaped business?  All applicants need to have:

  • Strong analytical skills whilst seeing the big picture of what we do – having attention to detail whilst understanding the wider context of the work being done
  • Learning agility – eager and quick to pick up on methodology and market trends on a steep learning curve
  • Thriving in ambiguity– accept the unknown; persevering and adapting to serve our clients
  • Building relationships -  being a strong team player and engaging in active communication with the team and clients

Our pathway programme provides the framework for our graduates to develop a broad range of skills and knowledge within a number of challenging and diverse placements during the first two years. Our graduate pathway programme offers three key streams: Health, Wealth and Career.

In each stream you will get the opportunity to complete a number of diverse placements within your home location and you will complete a project within each of the streams which will give you the best possible grounding as you develop your career at Mercer.

Our culture at Mercer ensures that all new employees are engaged, entrusted and empowered so they feel part of company, have pride in working for Mercer and feel like they make a difference. We offer a very supportive environment; you will be assigned a buddy and have a manager supporting you throughout the two year programme.  You’ll also get to share experiences with other graduates along the way building an excellent network.

We will fully fund a number of different professional study pathways including Actuarial Qualifications, CIPD, CFA programme and PMI and all our graduates within the Wealth stream will complete the Investment Management Certificate within the first three months of joining.

We offer broad ranging careers in a number of locations and therefore we are looking for candidates from a range of academic backgrounds.
