The Business

We are leading the curve by transforming work for 100 million employees and driving sustainable profitable performance to invest in our business and our colleagues. In the Talent Line of Business, we are leading the curve for everything Talent. We are motivated by our purpose-driven vision for Talent & Rewards. We are unleashing our potential by propelling new and inspired conversations with our clients and colleagues. We are continually learning and building our capabilities. We are fostering collaboration and connections across our expert advice, data and software. We have a mind set for challenging the status quo, seeing what's possible and having the courage to break through. We bring value and impact to our clients. We are trusted advisors, solution architects and story makers who are transforming work for 100 million employees around the world. Our colleagues make a difference now and for the future.

The Talent Management and Organizational Alignment (TMOA) Practice is a part of the Talent Line of Business in the Talent & Rewards (T&R) segment. In TMOA, we help our clients utilize evidence-based talent management to enable their business strategies and maximize the effectiveness of their organization. Our focus is beyond individual processes we partner with our clients to achieve a real change through an integrated and systems oriented approach.

The Role

Consultants in the TMOA practice assist clients in their efforts to attract, retain and engage talent by developing and implementing innovative and practical Organizational Design, Talent Management, Human Capital, and related solutions, oftentimes with links to rewards and change management. Solutions can be broad in nature (for example, developing new organizational structures in the context of an M&A, establishing a renewed talent management or talent acquisition strategy) or more narrow (creating a functional competency model or doing an in-depth job analysis). Within the scope of your role, you will be responsible for identifying and selling new business opportunities within new and existing client relationships, leading the delivery and management of project work and operating as an advisor with clients. Experience effectively leading large and complex projects and coaching project teams is essential. You must also be willing and able to "dig in" to the project work as our project team model requires all members to be an active member in the delivery.

Typical projects include, but aren't limited to:

  • Talent Strategy

  • Organizational Design

  • Performance Management Design and Implementation

  • Competency Framework Design and Validation

  • Career Architecture Frameworks

  • Workforce Analytics and Workforce Planning

  • Continuing client relationships beyond the initial engagement, identifying additional ways to be of service and maintaining our position as a trusted advisor to their businesses

  • Collaborating with colleagues both within the practice and across Willis Towers Watson, to build our intellectual capital and take advantage of our multiple connection points with our clients

Your success will be determined both by what you do and how you do it. Your individual performance will be evaluated based on a number of factors, including your attainment of defined personal and financial goals, contribution to business growth, coaching of others both junior and peer level colleagues and more. You will also be assessed on how well you demonstrate Willis Towers Watson's valued behaviors of Client Focus, Integrity, Teamwork, Respect and Excellence.
