Enrolled across six schemes Allianz has welcomed 39 new graduates to its 2020 graduate programme. With degrees ranging from geography and economics through to history and politics the talented graduates will gain extensive exposure to the business and wide ranging career skills.
The schemes are as follows:
- Management Trainee
- Technical Pricing
- Actuarial and Risk
- Claims Data
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.
As part of their induction the graduates have had virtual welcome meetings with CEO Jon Dye as well as other members of the senior management team.
Allianz’s graduate talent manager, Jules Harrison commented: “I’m really pleased to welcome the 2020 intake to Allianz and am delighted to see some of our former summer interns returning among that number. Whilst we have to make adjustments to the programme so that everyone, at least initially, can work from home I know that the experiences they will gain over the next few years will still be invaluable.
“At Allianz we really invest in our people and the amount of talent this scheme continues to attract is a real testament to that. I wish all of our new intake the very best of luck as they start their virtual placements.”
Applications are now open for Allianz’s 2021 Graduate and Internship programmes.
