All Degree Disciplines & Universities Considered

At Willis Towers Watson, we believe that a culture of inclusion and diversity (I&D) is critical to our business. It’s not a separate initiative in its own silo. Rather, I&D is fundamental to everything we do. How we hire and promote, how we work with clients and how our teams function. With 45,000 colleagues serving more than 140 countries and markets, our company vision includes being a destination employer where colleagues work together as one team.

In Corporate Risk & Broking (CRB), we provide a broad range of risk advice and insurance broking services to clients ranging from small businesses to multinational corporations. What does this meane? It means we have a range of roles that help our clients better understand, assess and balance their risk, whether that be reducing risk, transfering (insuring) risk, or developing strategies to mitigate risk.

The Role 

The CRB Graduate Development Program (GDP) is a two-year rotational program that provides the opportunity to develop a broad knowledge base, varied skills and diverse network. This program is designed to set you up with a holistic view of CRB with hands on experience, insight and opportunities to make an impact and shape your own career. Rotations are assigned through a mutual selection process based upon participant preference and business need. The program provides the opportunity for graduates to work hands on with senior leadership including client facing exposures from accounts ranging in the Fortune 500 sector to smaller market local business areas.

We serve a diverse range of clients including specialization in Cyber, Financial Institutions, Marine and Construction. For a full list of industries our colleagues work with click here

The program is comprised of two 12-month rotations across areas of Corporate Risk and Broking. Rotational assignments will build a technical foundation of knowledge and provide exposure to our clients through meaningful work assignments and projects with global scope.
