Mercer 2019 Summer Internship Programme

Financial Services, Consulting
8th February 2019


Health. Wealth. Careers.

A unique culture.  Best-in-class talent.  A clear mission and purpose. Put them all together and you will understand why Mercer is a global consulting leader in Health, Wealth and Careers.

Our 20,500 employees are based in more than 40 countries, and we now operate in more than 130 countries. We help clients around the world advance the health, wealth and performance of their most important asset – their people. We also have the added strength of being a wholly owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies (MMC), a global team of professional services companies offering clients advice and solutions in the areas of risk, strategy, and human capital.

The result? A career environment that combines variety and innovation with truly international reach.  If you’re in your penultimate year of study, why not get a taste of working for a multinational consulting firm by applying for our internship programme? Each summer we offer internships across many of our UK locations in Talent, Retirement and Investments.

The eight week programme runs from the beginning of July to the end of August. Throughout the programme you will get involved in client projects, be assigned a buddy to make sure you settle in quickly and help with day-to-day work queries. In addition, you will have an experienced consultant acting as your supervisor to assist you while you develop and learn over the course of the internship. You will also have the opportunity to work together with other interns in various offices and different divisions on projects designed to enhance your intern experience and industry knowledge.

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
