Allianz has welcomed 32 graduates onto its graduate programme. They recently shared an intensive induction week with presentations from CEO, Jon Dye, and members of the management board.
Enrolled across six schemes (Actuarial, Underwriting, Finance, IT, Claims and Management Trainee) the graduates will gain extensive exposure to the business and wide ranging career skills.
Alongside their rotation of business areas each graduate will also study for a relevant professional qualification such as CII, CIMA, ACCA and FIA. They will also receive support and training in core professional skills.
Allianz’s graduate talent manager, Jules Harrison commented: “The experiences our graduates will gain over the next two years will be invaluable for their future careers and we will support them every step of the way. We’re really proud of our scheme and recognise the huge importance of investing in talent; it’s also really pleasing that some of our summer interns have returned as graduates this year. We wish all the new graduates the best of luck to as they begin their placements.”
