WORKING AT WILLIS TOWERS WATSON
At WTW, we believe that colleagues can be successful working in a variety of ways, and we are confident that our high-performing culture is the result of exceptional talent, not real estate. We trust our colleagues to know their work and the people, tools and environment they need to be successful. Therefore, to the extent that the role, business needs, geography and/or any regulations allow, working styles should be determined by the work to be done and the types of collaboration necessary for success.
This is applicable to all colleagues globally and focuses on three specific styles of working:
Office. On-site in a primary office location for all of a colleague’s working hours.
Remote. Predominantly outside of the office or traveling and spending very little time in one primary office.
Hybrid. A combination of office and remote working that can vary from colleague to colleague. The majority of WTW colleagues fall into this work style.
DEVELOPING YOUR CAREER
We believe the best way for our colleagues to develop is by deepening and broadening their experience. Your manager will work with you to provide opportunities for you to develop and grow, and will monitor your progress via our performance management process.
The process will begin when you set personal objectives for the year. These objectives will be aligned with the Willis Towers Watson business strategy, ensuring that your work will be linked to the company’s continued success through our enterprise scorecard. The scorecard outlines the company’s short- and long-term priorities. Some of our lines of business create their own organizational scorecards (subsets of the enterprise scorecard) with more specific goals for their teams and individual team members.
Guided by these scorecards, your manager will work with you to create short- and long-term plans for your professional development. These plans will help you shape your career progression.
OUR GRADUATE PROGRAMS
We seek bright, accomplished, highly motivated candidates with outstanding communication skills and a true passion for business. All bachelor’s degrees are considered, as long as you have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher (U.S.) or 2:1 or higher (U.K.). You’ll also need to be:
- Agile learner
- Able to work effectively in teams and cultivate relationships
- Excellent communicator (in writing and in person)
- Authorized to work in a permanent capacity in the country where the desired position is based
Depending on which program you join, you may start with a two-week orientation program, which gives you the opportunity to network with senior leaders, learn about our lines of business, and participate in group exercises with other graduate recruits.
On other programs, you’ll join the two year foundational development program, which is unique in the industry and includes a multitude of technical insurance and reinsurance modules delivered by our global subject matter experts through to a wider curriculum of professional, financial and client-facing skills.
The interview is meant to be a two-way conversation. We want to understand as much as possible about your background, experiences, interests, and potential fit for Willis Towers Watson and our program. At the same time, it’s an opportunity for you to find out everything you need to about us.
We recommend that you learn as much as you can about our company and the markets we serve prior to your interview. If we recruit on-campus at your school or university, visit our booth at the career fair or attend our information session, where you can meet with Willis Towers Watson colleagues, including former graduate hires.
