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

By now we think you’ve probably had enough of studying the theory of everything and are more than happy to put some of your ideas into practice. We’ve got good news: our international two-year graduate programme will give you immediate hands-on experience of the insurance world, doing real and useful work from the day you join us. 

Of course, we know you’ll still have lots to learn which is why you’ll be at the sharp end of some of the best on-the-job training in the industry from our highly-respected insurance professionals including claims handlers, underwriters, actuaries and risk modelers. 

We offer a comprehensive training programme combining in-house courses with specialist external facilitation, along with the opportunity and financial support to study professional, post graduate qualifications.

And for those with itchy feet, you’ll be pleased to hear that our graduate programme consists of three secondments; two of which will be based in your home country and an international secondment to one of our offices in the US, Bermuda, UK or continental Europe.

I’m persuaded: what qualifications do I need? 

To qualify for our graduate programme we expect you to have a solid academic record – we welcome applications from a range of academic backgrounds – and have achieved, or be expecting to achieve, at least a 2:2 degree in the UK or international equivalent. 

Country Qualifications Language skills
UK 280 UCAS points and at least a 2:2 degree English
US Evidence of high academic achievement, for example a grade point average of 3.4 or better out of 4.0 English
France France Masters degree either in engineering, a business subject or law from a Grande Ecole Business English and French
Germany An excellent degree in insurance, finance, economics or law, with a grade point average of 2.0 or better Business English and German

Any other requirements?

You must have an unrestricted right to work in the country in which the role is based without the support of a work visa. You will be able to speak and write fluently in business English, be numerate, and demonstrate strong interpersonal skills while also sharing our company values.
