Financial Solutions Day
WTW is a global business with a long association with Suffolk. See our website!
Our colleagues serve clients in more than 140 countries around the world, from Mumbai to London, the Middle East to Latin America and from Manila to New York. There is a global dimension to almost everything we do which creates exciting opportunities for collaboration and career growth as part of OneWTW.
At WTW we believe that difference makes us stronger. We want the makeup of our workforce to reflect the different and varied markets we operate in, and a culture of inclusivity where all our colleagues can bring their best self to work every day.
We look forward to welcoming you to our iconic building, as part of The Festival of Suffolk, to showcase the opportunities we have to offer future employees.
Who should attend?
Current students, at schools (year 10 and above), colleges, and universities, who are looking to work for a company with global, diverse, and exciting career opportunities.
If you want to understand more about a career in the global Financial Services industry (covering Insurance, Business Operations, Risk, Financial Advice and associated careers in Accounting, Technology, HR, etc) then visit us at WTW.
What are you going to see and learn?
The Financial Solutions industry is much more than number crunching. You will gain an insight into how varied, exciting and challenging our work can be.
You will meet with some of our WTW business leaders, sharing their insights into WTW, and also meet with some of our current and past apprentices.
There will be opportunities for networking and Q&A sessions, but also some more detailed insight sessions in some key business areas, such as Claims and Broking.
You will gain an understanding of the size and scope of WTW, the benefits of working for a diverse, large global business, and also learn about how important our values are to us.
Of course, we will also have lunch available, and you will be able to see around the iconic, award winning WTW building.
