HEAR FROM PREVIOUS INTERNS

I was given a lot of responsibility as an intern and always felt my opinions were valued. The friendly and collaborative team readily offered support and provided a great environment to quickly develop skills. I got to work on interesting projects alongside the partners.

Freddie Denison-Smith,
Summer Intern 2019

Getting to work with fellow interns, consultants and partners alike, my time at Oxbow Partners has been extremely interesting and varied. I have learnt a lot about insurance and consulting, but it is thanks to everyone at Oxbow Partners that the internship has been so enjoyable.

Isabelle Goodridge,
Summer Intern 2020

Interning with Oxbow Partners has been an incredibly rewarding experience. I was given the opportunity to work on a high-profile project from day one and could see the impact my contributions were having. Every member of the team is friendly and always happy to help.

Jake Harrison Woods,
Summer Intern 2020

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

Our team has a broad range of backgrounds and interests, but we have two things in common.

First, nobody expected to go into insurance when they were at university but stumbled into the industry and has found it to be a huge, complex and fascinating space.

Second, every member of our team is an outperformer, always striving to be the best. They have shown this by attending a top university, playing sport to a high level or mastering a skill like singing in a choir or learning a language. At interview, we like hearing about the knocks people have taken and how they’ve bounced back – because success is rarely gained without some bumps.

But we do not want robots and we certainly don’t want egos. We are a small team where everyone is expected to support each other. There is no need or tolerance for sharp elbows.

Successful candidates are therefore sharp thinkers, have interests outside of work, enjoy being successful and love working in a team. We hire from all degree subjects. Insurance knowledge is not expected.

APPLICATION PROCESS

To apply to the summer internship programme, you will need to upload your CV and provide a max. 300 word response to our 2021 application question which could be something like: “Tell us something interesting about your degree subject?”  

Successful applicants will be invited to our two-round interview process:

Round 1: CV discussion and a brief case study (30 minutes)

Interview with one of our Consultants to discuss your motivations and experiences and test your problem solving and analytical skills.

Round 2: Business case study (60 minutes)

Interview with one of our Senior Consultants or Managers. You will be immersed into a client situation and provided with data to work through and make recommendations. You do not need any advance preparation or technical knowledge, but we recommend you practice consulting case studies.

As a business we are conscious about our environmental impact and will facilitate remote/virtual interviews if you are based outside of London.

Applications for the 2022 Oxbow Partners Summer Internship Programme will open in September 2021.

The Programme will run from 30 June to 26 August 2022. Please register your interest below.
