Opportunities Await You

Mercer offers many exciting and fruitful internship and entry-level positions as actuarial and HR consulting analysts.

We are looking for those who are passionate about making a difference in the health, wealth and careers of thousands of people. If you’re a problem solver, team player, strong communicator and keen observer, we encourage you to explore opportunities at Mercer.

Get A Better Understanding of the Roles:


Jumpstart your career by engaging with industry experts on innovative projects. You will have the experience of a full-time analyst role and gain valuable insights into the world of professional services. Mercer offers internships in Employee Health & Benefits, Government Human Services Consulting, Retirement Consulting, Talent Consulting and Mercer Marketplace. All majors are welcome to apply.

Actuarial Analyst: 

After completing at least one exam, begin your career working with the leading Human Capital Consulting Firm as an entry-level actuarial analyst. Early in their careers, actuarial analysts will have a high level of responsibility with exposure to clients. You will work closely with senior consultants to design, finance, price, and administer client companies’ health and welfare programs.

Mercer supports its actuaries through our Actuarial Study Program. We provide support through paid study and exam time, monetary reimbursement for materials and tests, and internal guidance and study resources. Candidates with valid receipts may be reimbursed for study materials and exam fees after their official start date at Mercer.

Consulting Analyst: 

As a consulting analyst, you will help collect, analyze and interpret data for client reports. You’ll also write and structure client communications, including proposals, reports, spreadsheets and presentations. With a solid practical and analytical foundation of the industry, you will strengthen your future career path.

Employee Health & Benefits analysts work with employer health plans. Mercer Marketplace analysts handle exchange products and build out customized services. Talent analysts have a dual understanding of finance and human behavior. Investment analysts work on accounting and math-based projects.


 As an associate, you will interpret and draw meaningful conclusions from research and analysis on industry and organization-specific issues. You will evaluate clients’ strategic business objectives and their implications for rewards, leadership, organization performance and other HR policies.

Associates are targeted to students graduating from an MBA or master’s program in the current academic year. Candidates should have three to five years of relevant business experience. Currently, we offer Summer Associate and full-time Associate positions with our Talent business.
