Mercer Wealth Apprenticeship 2020 - Edinburgh


We’re Mercer - a global consulting leader in health, wealth and career.  But if you’re applying for apprentice roles, all of these descriptions are probably starting to blur into one. What would you actually be doing if you join us?


Mercer’s Wealth business is a leading global provider of consulting services.  What does this mean in practice?  We support companies, trustee boards and individuals to make better, more informed decisions about their retirement plans, long-term savings, investment strategies and managing risk.

The nature of the industry is changing and at Mercer we are excited to be leading this change. 

We are now looking for apprentices to join Mercer working across a broad range of clients and projects. If you want to tackle new challenges, develop a breadth of skills, be a part of a growing business and have fun at the same time, read on.

  • Analytical skills, both quantitative and qualitative, and working knowledge of Microsoft Office — Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
