The Business

Human Capital & Benefits (HCB) consultants combine deep analytics, sage advice, astute broking, intuitive software, proven administration, and relevant solutions to help all kinds of organisations (from small to mega) address their talent and benefit issues.

Willis Towers Watson is the leading provider of retirement consulting and actuarial services to today’s global organisations, providing actuarial services to more of the world’s top 300 pension funds than any other company. In the UK and Europe, we are the undisputed leader, advising 75 of the FTSE 100 companies.

We partner with clients around the globe to determine the best approaches to design, funding, governance, administration and communication around retirement programs.

The Role 

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

Graduates at Willis Towers Watson 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 also be recognised for your personal contribution!

As a Retirement graduate, you’ll need good communication skills, the ability to plan work effectively and a strong desire to solve challenging problems. You’ll develop consulting skills so that you can use these techniques to help clients understand and manage their risks.

Regardless of which of our offices you join, you’ll be part of the bigger Willis Towers Watson community, and will be able to contribute to our fundraising and community activities, as well as our sporting and social groups. We are committed to cultivating an inclusive work environment, enriched by our people, our clients, and the communities in which we work and live.

The Requirements 


  • Minimum 2:1 degree in a numerate discipline OR 
  • 2:1 degree including A-Level Maths grade A/B or equivalent qualifications

Career path and Study Support

Our development programme will equip you with the skills you need to progress in your career. During the first few years, the focus will be on technical and consulting skills, and you will be guided through a comprehensive programme that blends classroom training with structured on-the-job experiences and access to supporting learning resources. You will also benefit from access to our career pathing materials, enabling you to take control of your career from an early stage!

Graduates in Retirement study to become Fellows of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Willis Towers Watson will support you through the actuarial exams with a study mentor as well as a complete and flexible study support package that includes:

  • Membership fees of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries
  • Providing study materials for each exam such as course notes, sample questions, past paper questions, mock exams and revision notes 
  • Paying for tutorials for each exam 
  • Cost of sitting each exam and a re-sit attempt if required study leave – roughly one day per week 

And you’ll have the support of a large body of students and qualified actuaries, who can share their experiences of studying for the exams!

Graduates receive salary increases for each exam passed in addition to increases that may be awarded as part of their annual salary review.
