Do you want to work in a highly successful team with great rewards and flexibility?

Do you want to make a tangible difference to client’s employee health & wellbeing strategy and overall employee value proposition?

We have a great opportunity to join our Southern Region Healthcare and Risk Consulting team.

This is a hybrid role which provides the flexibility to work both virtually and from our offices.

Aon is in the business of better decisions

At Aon, we shape decisions for the better to protect and enrich the lives of people around the world.

As an organization, we are united through trust as one inclusive, diverse team, and we are passionate about helping our colleagues and clients succeed.


What the day will look like

A Principal Consultant will be primarily responsible for the retention and development of a portfolio of some of our largest and most complex clients, and for providing expert consulting advice to ensure our service meets clients’ needs. This will include a responsibility to drive growth and achieve a set of stretching commercial targets through working in tandem with colleagues across the business. The Principal Consultant will also be responsible for client leadership and contributing to setting strategy across the region and wider firm.


To achieve this you will:

  • Act as a client leader and a trusted advisor for a portfolio of complex clients, consistently providing expert advice
  • Elevate conversations across solution lines and beyond the Health business in order to bring the best of Aon to our clients
  • Develop and maintain long-term relationships with clients to enhance service delivery, ensure renewal and retention of existing accounts
  • Identify, nurture and own new business opportunities, both within the portfolio under management and across wider networks, working in partnership with Aon colleagues
  • Lead and shape activities and initiatives aimed at promoting Aon’s products and services in the marketplace (e.g. media events, trade conferences, client seminars)
  • Stay up-to-date with current trends and market developments in the industry, and contribute to thought leadership within the firm
  • Undertake reviews of clients’ employee benefits requirements, documenting and analysing the results, together with making recommendations for enhancement or the provision of services by Aon
  • Partner with clients to shape and set benefit strategy
  • Responsibility for working in accordance with the Aon UK Limited Risk Management Framework, and compliance with the Aon UK Limited policies.


How this opportunity is different

In this role you will have the opportunity to work with an impressive client portfolio, engaging at senior levels. You will also have support and will work collaboratively with our extensive internal network of strategic leaders, brokers and client service delivery teams.


Skills And Experience That Will Lead To Success

  • Experience within the Health & Benefits sector is essential
  • Whilst there is no requirement to be an outright expert in both risk and healthcare, a sound understanding of the “non-specialist” pillar is critical to help identify opportunities
  • Advanced technical competence in at least one pillar is essential
  • The successful applicant will have a proven track record of effective client leadership
  • Good interpersonal skills to deploy on both the internal and external client teams
  • A commercial mind and proven track record of delivering growth, supported by effective planning of pipeline opportunities
  • A sound understanding of Aon and our key propositions
  • Deep understanding of the Employee Benefits landscape and up to date knowledge of market trends
  • A self-motivating desire to improve Aon IQ to help drive further opportunities
