Flexible Working

Flexibility– with offices nationwide, we offer opportunities to work from an alternative Aon branch from time to time. You can also apply for flexible working.

Career Break - all permanent employees can apply for an unpaid career break of up to 12 months, so you can travel or study whilst maintaining job security.

Early weekends – we believe that downtime is important; time away from work for family, friends and activities. To assist our colleagues with this, we finish at 4pm on Fridays so our people can beat the traffic and start their weekends a little early.

Community Involvement

Aon United Day – provides an opportunity to celebrate our commitment to Aon United over three distinct days, in recognition of our colleagues, communities and clients and how we come together to work, live and deliver. This is an opportunity to give back and get involved in our local communities with the support of Aon behind you.
