What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be genuine and engaged in questions. Make it as unique as possible - questions like 'why insurance' or 'why Marsh' may sound generic but if you can put a personal spin on it then you will come across well. Equally make sure you ask thoughtful questions about Marsh - senior management are very aware about the shortfalls of Marsh as an employer (as well as the benefits). Showing recognition for this demonstrates that you are thoughtful and have made a full evaluation of Marsh for your career.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be authentic and enthusiastic in why you want to work in insurance and for Marsh - if you can tailor them to your personality/objectives all the better. Try to avoid being too loud and attention seeking in the assessment days, this doesn't come across well and the assessors are expert at seeing through this. Don't be backward and get involved where you can - 'be yourself' is overused but it really does apply here.
