The Business

The Retirement business is the largest part of our Human Capital & Benefits segment, providing advice on running many of the largest UK Defined Benefit (or Final Salary) pension schemes.

By joining Willis Towers Watson, you will have the opportunity to work on some of the largest pension schemes in the United Kingdom. We tackle complex challenges on a day to day basis, making a real difference for many employees and pensioners in a highly dynamic working environment. Often our client and project work have a very high public profile, meaning the work we do in the office could be the news the next day.

Please note that we do not accept multiple applications and you should only select and apply to one programme per year.

Location: Reigate

Demonstrate your passion for client delivery in financial consulting services and make an immediate impact. You'll learn what we do for our clients as you build strong working relationships and develop valuable skills from day one.
