Join us, and over two years, you’ll be empowered to learn a lot – about yourself, and our business – through three, eight-month placements, across three different locations in the UK. You’ll learn a lot about customer relationships and our variety of products and services, such as life cover, income protection, pensions, savings and investment products.

The first is a customer-facing role where you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of our customers; what they want, and how you can best meet their needs. The second will be in a specialist area such as our Channels or Product teams, and aims to expand your commercial and strategic skills. And, your third placement is designed to help you develop your leadership skills and potential. You’ll take full responsibility for leading a change initiative, a product development project, or potentially managing a team.

Wherever you’re based, you’ll work within teams whose interests and strengths are as diverse as yours are. You may work in customer-facing areas, directly responding to their needs, or you may work on projects where you are improving processes to better meet the needs of customers. You’ll also lead on volunteering initiatives that give back to UK communities. And, you’ll have the chance to complete a Diploma in Insurance from the Chartered Insurance Institute. Above all, on this programme, you’ll work closely with people to develop trusted relationships.

By the end of the programme, you’ll be ready to build a career that matters to you, anywhere within our entire Insurance business. And, if you like what you’re doing, we’re confident that it’ll prepare you to be one of the people who will steer the success of this multi-billion-pound business, in the future.
