About this apprentice employer

Our Apprenticeships

If you want to continue learning, growing and exploring but you’re not sure whether university is right for you, an apprenticeship with us could be the perfect solution.

With comprehensive training, support from mentors and buddies, and the chance to gain a fully funded professional qualification, you’ll be well on your way to building a successful career.

Even better, you’ll have a real job with a competitive salary from day one, with immediate opportunities to work alongside our graduate employees, tackling the same challenges and projects that they do.

What to expect

A Willis Towers Watson apprenticeship is a fantastic opportunity for you to earn while you learn. You’ll spend an average of approximately one day a week training towards a professional qualification.

The rest of the time, you’ll be working in one of our business teams, experiencing first-hand how we partner with our clients to find smart, innovative solutions to the challenges they face.

Examples of the kind of work you could be involved in include:

  • Advising a leading high-street retailer on how to invest their employee pension funds
  • Defining and securing sufficient insurance cover for an airline
  • Enabling our insurance clients to spread their own risk effectively

Who we look for

Each of our apprenticeships comes with its own unique challenges, so it’s definitely worth checking the program you’re applying for to make sure you meet the specific requirements of the role.

Wherever you join us, you will need to be ready to start contributing from day one and committed to building up your skills, knowledge and experience throughout your time at Willis Towers Watson.

Investing in our people is a priority for us. Without this investment, our business could not continue to thrive.

  • Textbook and online classroom learning
  • Live online tutorials
