Most candidates go through the following process (although this can vary depending on the country where the position is based):

  • Review and acknowledge our data privacy notice
  • Submit an application to include your CV/resume or LinkedIn profile
  • Take part in one or more competency-based job interviews, depending on the role
  • In some countries, you will be required to complete background screening once you have been offered the role. This will be subject to applicable laws and regulations. As part of the background screening process, you may be required to provide employment references and/or details about any criminal charges or convictions, as well as other background information.
  • Submit a documented proof-of-work authorization for employment in the country where the position is based.

After I submit my profile and/or application, will I receive a response?
Yes. We’ll notify you via email that we’ve received your profile and/or application.
Does WTW have a policy around hiring relatives of its current employees?
While our hiring managers are permitted to hire relatives of our employees, we evaluate each situation to avoid direct reporting relationships and common client assignments as much as possible. We do the same when our employees’ relationships change during employment due to events such as marriages.
How long should my CV/resume be?
The purpose of your CV/resume is to get you invited for an interview by advertising to the hiring team that you have what we need. So as long as your CV/resume shows you meet our job requirements, and provides supporting work history, the length doesn’t matter. It’s good to be concise (one page is fine if it includes all the required information). But make sure you don’t miss out any essential details just for the sake of keeping it short. Remember that you can also apply to our positions using your LinkedIn profile.
How do I know my personal information is secure?
WTW takes your privacy seriously. When you apply for jobs on the Careers portion of our website, we may use your application and any additional information you provide to assess your skills and interests against WTW career opportunities. We also may use the information for reporting purposes as may be required by local law. And we may use your information to communicate with you and inform you of career opportunities. Entities acting on behalf of WTW with which we share your information are bound by terms of confidentiality and this privacy policy.

Where does WTW have offices?
Our colleagues serve in more than 140 countries and markets across the world. Take a look at our interactive map to see our presence and opportunities globally.
Can I work from home/in the office/remotely?

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.

What’s the organization’s policy on flexible working?
Many of our roles offer flexibility in terms of hours or location (or both). If flexible working isn’t mentioned in the job description, you can discuss it with your recruiter during the screening process.
What’s WTW’s approach to workforce inclusiveness and diversity?
We believe that many of the greatest ideas and discoveries come from a diverse mix of minds, backgrounds and experiences. At WTW, our philosophy is that we have to be inclusive before we can be diverse: that’s why we call it Inclusion and Diversity. Our objective is to attract, retain and develop the very best talent needed to implement our business strategy globally and meet our organizational goals. Our commitment to inclusion and diversity shapes our approach to serving clients; delivers sustainable, profitable growth; and creates a supportive environment for all of our colleagues.


How will I continue to grow as a professional at WTW?

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 WTW 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.

What kind of training can I expect?
We offer our colleagues many opportunities for development, so you’ll find a variety of programs designed to support your continued growth. For individual contributors, we offer various courses and certifications. If you’re in a leadership role, we provide leader workshops based on best practices. We offer a suite of online training courses designed to build professional skills, and you’ll be able to take an online course when and where it fits your schedule.
What influence will I have over my career progression?
Our philosophy is that individuals drive their own careers. Only you can fully understand what’s most important in your career progression. At the same time, we’ll support you on your career journey and provide opportunities for you to gain diverse experiences in varying business environments around the world. Your manager will also be available to support you in building your career development plan, connect you to any support you may need, and help you make informed decisions about what direction you want to go in.
What if I join the company and then want to explore job opportunities in other countries?
At WTW, we strive to lead and sustain excellence. This means we have an unwavering commitment to the professional development and personal growth of our people. Our colleagues take responsibility to develop their expertise, competencies and professional stature, while the company invests in the tools and opportunities that support their continual development. For you, development might involve a position outside of your home country. Your manager will help you explore such opportunities. If you’d like to see which WTW positions are now open worldwide, see the job listings on our website.


What does Willis Towers Watson look for in a graduate hire?

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:

  • Customer-focused
  • 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
What training and development is available to Graduate Development Program participants?

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.

How does the graduate interview work?

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.

What’s the best way for me to submit an application?
All candidates must apply online. If you attend a U.S. school and we visit your campus, you must also apply via your school’s career services department.
When is the deadline for submitting an application?
Timelines may vary from year to year and country to country, but the deadline for full-time graduate opportunities is generally in the first week of November. For summer internship opportunities, the deadline is in the first week of February.
If I apply for the summer internship program and I’m not selected, can I still apply for a full-time position with Willis Towers Watson?
Yes. The selection process for our full-time and summer internship program is very competitive, and often we have more qualified candidates than positions. If you aren’t selected for a summer internship, you can apply for any full-time opportunities for which you’re qualified.
How are Corporate Risk and Broking Graduate Development Program rotational assignments determined?
While there’s no specific formula for the assignment of these rotations, one of the determining factors is class size. And while we strive for an equal distribution of graduate hires across our business lines, the needs of the business ultimately determine how we assign rotations to participants.
What options will be available to me at the end of the Corporate Risk and Broking Graduate Development Program?
When you complete the program, your program manager will work with you to identify positions within Willis Towers Watson that match your strengths, skills, experience and career aspirations. The focus will be on finding opportunities that help you develop your leadership skills.
Can I apply to more than 1 position per recruitment year?
We would encourage candidates to only apply to 1 position per recruitment cycle to avoid there being duplications at interview stage due to the large amount of applications we receive. Our recruitment cycle runs from September – March.
