Willis Towers Watson 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, Willis Towers Watson has over 40,000 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.
At Willis Towers Watson, we devote a lot of time and energy to making our internship opportunities the best they can be. Why? We consider interns to be critical. After all, many of our best university hires were once our best interns.
Our internships offers students immediate exposure to actual client assignments through direct hire internships in a specific business area. We look for students anticipating graduation from an undergraduate or Master’s program between December and June who have less than 12 months of relevant business experience.
While internships may vary slightly, each typically runs for six to eight weeks across the summer months in your area of the world. We offer internships within three of our business segments:
- Human Capital and Benefits
- Corporate Risk & Broking
- Investment, Risk and Reinsurance
An internship at Willis Towers Watson will provide you with valuable real-world experience while you are still a student. You’ll apply your education in an environment that is both intellectually challenging and rewarding. At the end of your time with us, you’ll have a greater understanding of what we do and how closely our career offerings match your professional ambitions.
As a largely project-based business, no two days are the same! We work hard to ensure your time with us is well-planned so that you leave us feeling you’ve actually contributed to client projects and developed your skills further—from project management to communication and presentation skills.
We recruit on a first come, first served basis and we will stop taking applications once we have filled our vacancies. Once you have decided to which program you would like to apply, we recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible.
We are driven to help our clients succeed. In every interaction and with every solution, we act in our clients’ best interests – striving to understand their needs, respecting their perspectives and exceeding their expectations.
When you get one of us, you get all of us. We bring innovative solutions and world-class advice to our clients by working across boundaries of business, geography and function. We help each other succeed and create more value together.
Our clients invest more than their time and money with us; they also invest their trust. We seek to earn that trust every day through professionalism, doing what is right and being honest. We are accountable to the organizations and people with which we interact – including clients, shareholders, regulators and each other – for all our actions and results.
We listen to and learn from each other. We support and celebrate differences, foster an inclusive culture and operate with openness, honesty and benefit of the doubt. We manage our relationships, inside the company and out, with fairness, decency and good citizenship.
We strive to lead and sustain excellence. Most importantly, this means an unwavering commitment to professional development and personal growth for our people. Our colleagues take responsibility to develop their expertise, competencies and professional stature, while the company invests in the tools and opportunities that allow for continual development. In our business, we place an unrelenting focus on innovation, quality and risk management.
