What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Understand what you are applying for because I originally applied for the Accounting & Settlement team which after starting the primary training I understood after the review of A&S it wasn't for me.
It's hard from looking online and into the position description to find anything out about the role, WTW as an entity and the insurance industry.
Do you have any interview tips?
Focus on the STAR approach and use evidence and situation that could back up what you are saying in an interview. Ask questions to the interviewers as then it feels less of an interrogation and more of a friendly chat which would 100% appeal to both parties of the interview.
