JUMPSTART YOUR CAREER

Graduate programmes

Our graduate programmes are designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to be successful in your role and beyond. Not only will you be gaining valuable experience through on-the-job, technical and professional skills training but you will also receive support towards achieving your professional qualification via an apprenticeship. Throughout your programme you’ll develop both expertise in your field and breadth of knowledge across the business through rotations or secondments, projects and mentoring. We are committed to you and your career, and so our graduate roles are permanent roles from day one.

Our programmes

This year, we’re offering two graduate programmes: National Markets Insurance and Wholesale Insurance. Each programme has been designed with your long-term career in mind and has been tailored to give you everything that you need to become a technical specialist in your chosen area.
