Graduate Leader Programme 2021
Learn about Aviva from all sides of the business and grow as we grow. We’ll support you to support your colleagues and customers, so that every step you take will be a step forward for everyone.
We’ll also give you the trust you need and the space you want to make decisions and push the organisation forwards within the industry. All you have to do is apply before your deadline.
Now you know what our leaders look like, but what about the programme? Well, it’s two years long and you’ll move across projects, teams and business areas, working on assignments to gain a breadth of invaluable experiences. You’ll be preparing for the challenges of leading and getting to know us as a company, inside and out. And because our customers are core to our purpose, our aim is for you to experience how we deliver great customer outcomes within one of your assignments.
As you progress through the programme, you’ll take on real responsibility. You could be running your own team project (with support!) or leading a new initiative. You’ll be learning every step of the way and you’ll be developing others, too.
Where you’ll be based
Your work could be close to home in your town, city or region, or it could take you somewhere new, so it’s important that you’re ready to move into any role, business area or location.
Your first assignment will be in one of these locations:
- Bristol, Eastleigh, London, Norwich, Perth, Sheffield or York
What an average day looks like
No two graduates have the same day at Aviva, and today and tomorrow will look completely different for you, too. But we can tell you that you’ll build confidence to present to groups of people. Depending on what area of the business you work in, you might spend some days crunching the numbers behind the scenes to solve complex problems for your team or your customers. You might spend others directly with the customer or your team, supporting them and motivating them.
Whether you work in customer service, strategy, project management, product innovation or underwriting, you’ll find out what leadership looks like day-to-day. We’ll work with you to structure a programme of experiences that supports both your ambitions and delivery of our strategy.
