2023 Retirement Actuarial Trainee Consultant Internship Programme, Manchester


2mo ago

🚀 Off-cycle


Rolling basis


Our Intern Programme is designed for penultimate year university students. It is currently expected that the duration of the internship will be 8 weeks, but this may be subject to review depending on the working situation nearer the time. 

In 2022 our Intern Programme was run with a combination of in office activity and virtual homeworking. 

An internship at WTW will give you valuable real-world experience. It will enable you to apply your education in an environment that is both intellectually challenging and rewarding. At the end of your time with us, you will have a greater understanding of what we do and how closely our career offerings match your career ambitions. 

You will be treated in the same way as our new trainee consultants, receiving the same quality and quantity of work. It is the perfect opportunity to understand what you could expect if you joined our trainee consultant programme the following year, and many of our interns return as permanent team members following graduation.

Area of Responsibilities



As an intern in the Retirement team, you’ll need good numerical and communication skills, the ability to plan work effectively and a strong desire to solve challenging, technical problems. You’ll develop consulting skills so that you can help clients understand and manage their pension risks. Trainee consultants and interns at WTW benefit from all the resources and opportunities that a large company can provide, but this doesn’t come at the cost of individuality. You will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the leading figures in the pensions industry and also to be recognised for your personal contribution. Regardless of which of our offices you join, you’ll be part of the bigger WTW community, and will be able to contribute to our fundraising and community activities, as well as our sporting and social groups (many of which have continued while colleagues have been working from home). We are committed to cultivating an inclusive work environment, enriched by our people, our clients, and the communities in which we work and live.
