Insurance Consulting (Property and Casualty) Internship Programme London 2024

Lock Applications for this job are now closed

In Insurance Consulting we advise and provide solutions to insurance companies on the quantification and management of risk, and on wider operational capabilities, to provide competitive advantage in a rapidly changing world. Our client base includes more than three quarters of the world’s leading insurers across both life and property/casualty insurance

The Role

Our 8 week Intern Programme is designed for penultimate year students.

An Internship at WTW will give you valuable real-world experience while you are still a student. It will enable you to apply your education in an environment that is both intellectually challenging and rewarding. At the end of your time with us, you will have a greater understanding of what we do and how closely our career offerings match your career ambitions.

You will be treated in the same way as our new graduates receiving the same quality and quantity of work. It is the perfect opportunity to understand what you could expect if you joined our graduate programme the following year.

A role in Insurance Consulting is stimulating, challenging, exciting and extremely rewarding.

We require associates who are technically and mathematically minded, with the ability to solve complex and challenging commercial problems using innovative and proportionate approaches.

As consultants, it is necessary to build a strong technical skillset but also the ability to communicate complex concepts to audiences from a variety of backgrounds. We deal with actuaries, accountants, technologists, data scientists, insurance entrepreneurs, senior executives and other Board members. Each audience has different needs and knowledge and we need to tailor our communications to suit.

We are looking for candidates who are excellent in their own fields and are able and driven to apply their skillsets to work with clients to support them in delivering their strategy and objectives.

What will I be doing day to day?

As a project-based advisory business, no two days are the same. Our interns will experience this work variety immediately and see this continue as their careers develop.

Interns will tend to be involved in around 2 projects during the 8 weeks, working on each with the support and guidance of an experienced consultant. You will be involved in regular project meetings which will help you to understand the business context and project objectives, and where your contribution fits in, as well as providing a space for you to report your progress.

You may also be involved in communicating with client stakeholders, working directly alongside clients or joining meetings/calls discussing progress or sharing deliverables.

Our interns receive broad training during their internship with WTW, which supplements on he-job learning.
