Where would I be working?

Aon's regional office locations are all centrally located in either the town or city centre and are usually within walking distance of the main public transport links. The teams that are based in these locations tend to be smaller, closer-knit teams offering apprentices the same level of exposure to senior leadership and the same career development and learning opportunities that are offered in their London office. They operate an agile working policy, which means all colleagues are equipped to be able to work from any location, this provides apprentices with the opportunity to work with and learn from different people every day.
