Internships and Placements

Placements and internships can give you a valuable introduction to the world of work. Even more importantly, they can give you a powerful insight into what an organisation such as ours actually does – and whether or not you would be happy pursuing a career as part of our team.

For all these reasons, we run both eight-week summer internships and 15-month placements.

If you’re in your penultimate year of study, why not get a taste of working for a multinational consulting firm by applying for one of our internships? Each summer we offer internships across many of our UK locations in Retirement, Risk & Finance, and Investments. These eight-week programmes run from the beginning of July to the end of August. All work is supervised and you’ll be assigned a buddy to make sure you settle in quickly and to help you with day-to-day work queries.

We also offer 15-month placements within our Retirement Service Centre. Starting in June of every year, these are a great opportunity for you to learn more about the world of pensions as well as fully understand the role of a Retirement Analyst by gaining experience in a supportive team environment. You’ll get exposure to global projects and have the opportunity to understand how the work you do impacts on Mercer and our clients.

2017 applications have closed as of the 31st January. 2018 applications will open in September 2017, please check back for more information and to apply.



"I think one of the best things about working for Mercer is you really have the opportunity to grow your career the way you want, no matter where they come in you see people who have made it to the senior level."
