Work & Reward Internship Consulting Programme London 2024
WTW is a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company that helps clients around the world turn risk into a path for growth. With roots dating to 1828, WTW has 46,000 employees serving more than 140 countries. We design and deliver solutions that manage risk, optimize benefits, cultivate talent, and expand the power of capital to protect and strengthen institutions and individuals. Our unique perspective allows us to see the critical intersections between talent, assets, and ideas – the dynamic formula that drives business performance. Together, we unlock potential.
The greatest asset of most organisations is their people. In an era of rapidly developing technology, greater workforce mobility and increasing customer demands, having a cohesive human capital strategy is crucial for business success.
In our Work, Reward & Career business, we help clients deliver strong business results by ensuring that they have the right people in the right places, doing the right things, at the right cost. Through a combination of advice, data, and software, we deliver solutions that help organisations improve their business performance through their people.
We know that high-performing businesses cultivate and grow talent, carefully balancing costs, and rewards. From job architecture to performance management, we take a rounded perspective, based on leading-edge thinking, data, analytics, and software, unearthing new ways to attract, engage and retain talent.
Our human capital clients are varied – we advise organisations across all industries, from financial services to retail, telecommunications, and energy. In the UK, we advise many of the world’s leading and largest companies and often interact with our offices around the world to provide a truly global service offering. We provide invaluable advice to companies at some of the most exciting and critical moments in their lifecycle, at times when employee engagement and retention is crucial – from mergers and acquisitions to listing on the stock market.
As an intern in our Work & Reward line of business, you will have the opportunity to work across our Work & Reward teams.
- Our Executive Compensation and Board Advisory consultants work with boards of directors, compensation committees and management to get all elements of executive level pay right.
- Our Work & Reward consultants provide strategy, design, and delivery support to help our clients reward their people appropriately and fairly, enabling organisations to attract, retain, motivate, and engage employees efficiently and cost-effectively.
At WTW, we believe difference makes us stronger. We want our workforce to reflect the different and varied markets we operate in and to build a culture of inclusivity that makes colleagues feel welcome, valued and empowered to bring their whole selves to work every day. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to fostering an inclusive work environment throughout our organisation. We embrace all types of diversity.
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.
You will work as part of a team on a wide variety of complex projects. You will serve as a key resource for the consultant in charge of each of your engagements by performing many intricate aspects of the client work. As you grow and gain more expertise, you will become a key contact for the client. You will work alongside some of the industry’s top consultants on cross-industry client projects, including many household names: FTSE 100 and 250 clients, privately held companies and public service organisations.
You will have immediate exposure to real client assignments which will draw on your imagination and creativity, as well as your ability to analyse data, draw conclusions and present results. These experiences will help build your technical knowledge and overall industry expertise while you benefit from more structured learning interventions.
Qualifications and Training
We have a focussed 12-month training programme for graduates joining Work & Rewards, which is called FAST START. FAST START is designed to give our graduates an insight into our business, and help them develop the consulting, practical and technical skills they need to succeed at WTW. While you are on your internship, you will be invited to attend any relevant sessions.
We continue to invest in our people, and you will have regular opportunities for training throughout your career with us – both on the job and through more formal classroom sessions. Consultants are not required to have a particular qualification; therefore, the wide variety of external qualifications we do support are determined by the needs of the business and the individual’s interests.
- Minimum 2:2 degree or equivalent qualifications
