Your learning journey

Creating an environment where colleagues can grow personally and in their careers is something we take seriously at Aon Ireland. That’s why we have a strong commitment to continuous learning and development for all our employees.

As an Early Careers colleague, irrelevant of the programme or stream you join, you’ll benefit from thorough training and ongoing support for your professional and career development.
With our Learning and Development programmes, we’ll give you the tools you need to take your curiosity, passion and career further.

Learning at Aon

We offer a range of development opportunities for Early Career colleagues and are committed to doing our utmost to help you succeed. Our Development Programmes are stream specific and designed to fuel your passion for knowledge and improvement. A hunger to learn is vital in order to benefit from our ethos of giving colleagues early responsibility. There are a number of core skills that we will expect you to bring, such as numeracy, an analytical mind and consultancy skills, but we don’t expect you to be the finished article when you join us.

All New Joiners to Aon Ireland receive centralised training and networking opportunities. These will help you develop your understanding of all our businesses and improve your general business acumen, equipping you with the professional skills you will need to be successful.

Your technical and on-the-job training will take place in the individual streams and be supported locally. Additionally, our Aon University portal provides colleagues with access to hundreds of online training courses as well as tools and resources to help further support professional and career development.


Development Framework

When it comes to how colleagues learn best, we understand that an ever-changing digital world demands that we challenge tradition and focus more on experiences, connections and opportunities.
Our continuously evolving Early Career programmes allow us to move away from formal classroom environments and encourage cross-functional, innovative thinking through social and experiential learning.

The best research tells us that adult learning happens best through experience, not in a classroom and our Development Framework strives for 70 percent of colleague development to occur through experiences, 20 percent to occur through coaching and feedback, and 10 percent to occur via formal education.

Experience (70% of our focus) Feedback (20% of our focus) Education (10% of our focus)
