Graduates

So that’s university done and dusted. What next?

You’ll get immediate hands-on experience of the insurance world with our graduate programme, doing real and useful work from the day you join us.

You’ll receive excellent on-the-job training from our highly respected and experienced insurance professionals, together with a structured learning programme designed to develop your financial and business acumen as well as skills that are essential for your future career. You’ll get full financial support to study for relevant professional qualifications, as well as being supported by a senior level sponsor throughout your time on the graduate programme.

Our graduate scheme is rotational, designed to give you a broad understanding of our business and to equip you with a wide range of skills and knowledge. In each of your rotations, you’ll be given challenging work that will stretch you and enable you to contribute to the success of the business. Most of your rotations will take place in your home location (or remotely if needed), with one of your rotations anticipated to be abroad. However, nothing is guaranteed in the current climate. You’ll need to be flexible, adaptable, and willing to make the most of every opportunity that comes your way.

Is it for me?
