Internships and University Placements

Our paid Internships and University Placements are great opportunities to kick start your career in a high-impact and highly productive environment. We believe we learn best in practical situations and our Internship and University placements are based on solving problems for our clients offering real responsibility from day one. Both programmes are designed to offer an enriching entry-stage career experience to those who are looking to gain hands-on exposure to our business while enjoying the freedom to take risks, foster innovation, and champion for change. Depending on the area you join, you will use your numeracy, analytical abilities and strong communication skills to help clients address key questions that affect the running and growth of their businesses.

Internship Opportunities

Internship in Aon Centre for Innovation and Analytics


We invite you to join our 12-week paid Internship experience where you’ll be given real responsibility from day one, working alongside Aon colleagues on client projects to gain an insight into our business, an understanding of our culture and the career paths available to you.

What you can expect

Our Internship and University Placements will expose you to all aspects of our business through on-the-job learning opportunities and participation on business critical projects. Your learning and development will be fast-paced and hands-on. Lunch and Learn knowledge-share sessions, networking events, and a high level of far-reaching interaction across our broader teams means that students benefit from the many development opportunities available to them during their placement with us.

During your placement, you will be contributing to our business, taking on real responsibilities and having to manage your work effectively. You will be assigned a mentor to help guide you through your placement and answer any questions you have about your work and our business.

Technical training and business skills will be a core part of your programme, ensuring you leave us with a better understanding of the professional world and how best to make your way in it.

Although an Internship or University Placement does not guarantee a place on our Graduate Programmes, a significant proportion of our candidates have gone on to successfully embark on a career with us and our formal Internship Programmes are viewed as a high-potential pipeline for our Graduate Programmes. As a participant you will be considered for a place on our Graduate or future Internship Programmes based on your performance and achievements during your time with us.


To apply for the ACIA Summer Internship, you will be on track to achieve (or have achieved) at least a 2:1 degree within a technical, data analytics or business-related discipline.

You will also need the ability to combine numeracy and analytical capabilities with client service skills as well as the confidence to question.
