3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy both my day to day job and Apprenticeship programme.

The company is good to work for, they reward hard work. There are many opportunities to move and grow as there are so many different job roles within the company.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Aon?
Try and stand out from others- for example by having experience within financial services. It's not all about insurance knowledge, don't memorise Wikipedia! Broking is all about relationships (with clients and insurers) and so it is important that you are personable.
