About JLT

JLT Group IT function is based in the company's London Offices and provides shared services to the Group.

Our business is continuously evolving and Group Information technology is embarking on an exciting and truly global IT Transformation programme to support our business ambitions. We are improving the way we work and serve clients by investing in the efficiency and effectiveness of our people, systems and processes. Our objective is to remain agile, drive innovation and improve the value we bring to JLT.
