What international opportunities are there at Marsh?

As Marsh is a global firm operating in over 130 countries, future international opportunities exist. While on the Graduate Development Programme, however, you will be UK based so you can focus on and immerse yourself in your role. International opportunities are driven by business need and colleague aspiration. 

I do not have a predicted 2:1 degree classification, what opportunities are available to me?

If you do not meet the minimum requirement, we encourage you to review our careers database for other job opportunities.

What degree disciplines do you consider?

We consider applications from any degree discipline and find that no matter what our graduates have studied, they’ve always been able to relate it to some aspect of their work. Find out how your degree and skills relate to our industry on the Risk and Insurance page. We recommend that you take the time to research and familiarise yourself with the risk and insurance industry.

Can I save my application and complete it at a later time? 

Certainly. While filling out the online application, you have the option at the bottom of each page to ”Save & Continue”. Your completed application will not be submitted until you reach the last page. Please be aware that at the moment our system is experiencing a technical issue and some applicants are receiving notification that their application has been submitted once it has been saved. This is not the case and your application will not be reviewed until you have completed all the pre-screening questions and attached your CV.

When can I expect to hear back about my application? 

You should receive an email confirmation that we have received your application. From there, your application will be reviewed and we’ll contact you by telephone or email. We aim to respond to all applications within three weeks. However, please be aware that on occasions the high volume of applications for some roles may result in this time being delayed. But don’t worry – we will get back to you as soon as we can.

I can’t make the Assessment Centre Dates, what should I do?

Unfortunately we’re not able to move the dates of our assessment centre. We ask that you ensure you are available on the date of the location you’re applying to.
