Location: London, United Kingdom

Company: Marsh

Job ID R_043488-en

The Team

Sitting alongside the core insurance broking business, Marsh's Client Advisory Services (CAS) provides Strategic and Operational Risk advice to the world's largest companies. We are a professional services firm consisting of consultants, actuaries, accountants, and ex-lawyers. We are ~300 in the UK.

We are seeking experienced consultants to join our Strategic Risk Practice. The Strategic Risk practice consists of ~20 individuals in the UK, and is led by ex-strategy and risk consultants from the London offices of Bain, McKinsey, Oliver Wyman, and the Big 4. Our Junior Consulting Programme provides a source of incoming talent to the practice.

What we are seeking

The practice, currently growing at 30+% YoY, is seeking individuals to assist in the sales and lead the delivery of our largest and most complex projects.

Typical projects include:

·         Leading internal and client-facing strategy projects

·         Running large-scale data and analytics projects

·         Leading teams of 15+ subject matter experts (across MMC) to design and implement insurance structures

·         Working with the insurance brokers and markets to develop bespoke insurance products for high-profile clients and segments (often global tech firms)

·         Advising our clients on quantifying and managing cyber risk

·         Deployment of actuaries and analysts to answer complex questions – using languages including R or Python

To deliver these projects, you will be required to integrate advisory capabilities from across Marsh and the wider MMC group (e.g. Oliver Wyman or Guy Carpenter) ranging from actuaries, accountants, lawyers, and specialist brokers (e.g. in the Aviation sector). You will work closely alongside and integrate with our Enterprise Risk and Resilience experts.

Key benefits of the role:

·         Wide variety of clients, industry, and projects

·         A much better work/life balance than available in a Strategy Consulting firm

·         An opportunity to learn about the insurance industry; experience an industry beginning to undergo disruption

·         Opportunity to rapidly gain sales, operational, and management experience, at a much faster pace than you will get in most consulting firms

Job Requirements

·         Extensive consulting experience at a Strategy Consulting firm, Big-4, etc.

·         A strong analytical background, with operational, sales, and/or management experience is highly beneficial.

·         The ability to ‘translate’ client questions to analytical questions to solve – e.g. deploying R / Python

·         An interest in insurance, data & analytics, and risk management.
