Commercial Risk Solutions

Trends in economics, demographics and geopolitics – compounded by the rapid pace of technological change – are creating unprecedented volatility for organisations. We offer risk advisory, risk transfer and structured solutions that help organisations and individuals better identify, quantify and manage their risk exposure.

We harness our global scale and unmatched investment in proprietary data and analytics to provide clients with structured insurance market access, greater pricing certainty and increased capacity to meet their evolving risk management needs. Our risk consultants use insights to develop a wide range of solutions that help clients across sectors and industries reduce their total cost of risk.

“Clients have risks that are increasing around the globe. There has never been more risk out there; there has never been more complexity; and there has never been more opportunity to make a difference on behalf of clients”
Greg Case, president and CEO of Aon plc

Retirement & Investment Services

The UK pensions landscape is evolving at a rapid pace. Economic challenges, legislative change, an ageing population and asset volatility pose a wide variety of risks and challenges to pension schemes. Trustees and scheme sponsors are faced with a range of decisions on difficult topics from managing risk to improving member engagement, setting an investment strategy to managing DC plans.

Aon's market-leading capabilities and award-winning expertise make us the perfect partner to help you through your pension challenges. We can provide integrated and comprehensive solutions across actuarial, plan administration, investment and insurance disciplines, enabling us to serve our clients' unique needs every step of the way.

Our Investment Consultants bring real-world investment experience when addressing client issues. We work across a wide range of investment options, ranging from investment advice, such as the need to use swaps and derivatives or how to use hedge funds appropriately, to much more direct help. Our sophisticated modelling tools help us to make informed choices about investment strategies and tailor our solutions to clients' needs.

Cyber Solutions

Aon offers a full range of services to help our clients approach cyber as an enterprise risk and achieve cyber resilience.

Aon’s cyber capabilities can support organisations in embracing a risk-based approach. This facilitates the deployment of a more effective cyber insurance strategy to help optimise the total cost of risk associated with cyber exposures through 360 assessment and impact analysis.

Reward

For most firms, people are their largest expense and their greatest asset. People have the most significant impact on a firm’s performance. In an increasingly competitive market, optimising investment in reward and performance is vital for a firm’s overall success. Aon’s Reward division has a drive to assist companies to design and implement remuneration policies that will help them meet their strategic goals, including retention, reward and incentivisation. In world of regulation, scrutiny and complexity, it has become more and more evident that this is an expert field, where specialist advice is required.

100% committed to developing your potential

Our Early Careers Development Programmes have been designed to identify and develop the future stars of our business. We want people who can demonstrate their enthusiasm and potential, and who have a strong academic background.

We recruit students into four different Programmes depending on your entry point: Apprenticeships, Summer Internships, Industrial Placement Students and Graduates. Once you have decided which Programme is right for you, you will have a choice of a technical Stream. Depending on the area you join, you'll be using your numeracy, analytical abilities and strong communication skills to help clients address key questions that affect the running and growth of their businesses. What will be the impact of rising life expectancy? How would the collapse of the Eurozone affect the world economy? Will we see an increase in anti-globalisation protests? Can we look forward to a rise in living standards? Or should we all be preparing for a fall? Aon's business is to provide the answers.

Real responsibility

Early responsibility is a way of life at Aon. You'll very quickly become a technical specialist in your particular area, meeting clients and advising them on our market-leading products far sooner than you would in many other organisations. Our training will fully equip you to make an immediate impact on our business. Your Development Programme will complement your Stream-specific training, helping you to build your business knowledge, develop professional skills and grow effective relationships with clients and colleagues. We also provide full study support for professional qualifications. All in all, everything is in place to help you forge a career in which challenges and rewards will come in equal measure.
