1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

8/10

I work within the real estate team and have interaction with both clients and insurers - currently relating to risk improvements. Another large part of my job is to help produce documents to which insurers can quote from. However there is a lot of other different things that go on as well.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

10/10

Currently studying for my Cert CII however there is a quite clear route of progression to Dip CII and ACII. As an apprentice I've been on a 2 week induction where we developed many soft skills as well

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

10/10

Immensely. To be fair - if I didn't have such great people to work and go out with I don't know if that that would affect my enjoyment. There is a good after work culture where a load of us will go out for a drink or two - which is important!

4. How valued do you feel by Aon?

9/10

Totally. You can see it with the investment that they make in you. The internal praise from my team is also really rewarding and makes you feel like a valued member of the team.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

7/10

Its well structured in the sense that apprenticeship side is well structured and the internal team side is well structured with good support. However, there seems to be a lack of good organisation between the early careers team and the team I work in. Its not terrible but it could be improved.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?

9/10

Our tutor - Laura is amazing. She always seems approachable if you need anything and is just an email away. She explains everything in such a way that it is super simple to understand.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

10/10

My manager is great and always answer all my questions even if they may be stupid. My buddy is also amazing in both helping my learning the work that I'm doing and then settling into the job - I really feel settled into the team.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

8/10

Its an incredibly decent wage for a first job. But it always nice to have more - especially in London where everything is job more expensive - however Aon realise this and have rated our Salary differently

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

9/10

Having a few drinks with mates is a good pass time - however outside the city I'm at the Gym. There are voluntary activities that we can get involved in. I've been lucky enough to able to travel a bit aswell.

9a. Would you recommend Aon to a friend? *

Yes

9b. Why? *

Its hard to explain - but there is something special working at Aon. I can't put my finger on it but you have to experience it to realise. However - it is the people that make it.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Aon? *

Research Aon. Know what we are about - know how you can benefit from Aon but also how can Aon benefit from having you. Get involved in a load of different things so that you can use it in your interview. Don't be nervous when going to these interviews as I only had a positive experience with the people.
