Accountancy. What’s it all about?

It’s all about number crunching, right? Nope. Not at Aviva. Join us as a graduate in accountancy, and you’ll have a direct role to play in deciding what we do now – and where we go next. Yes, accountancy does involve looking at the figures. We’re a heavily-regulated industry after all. But it’s also about solving problems. Thinking strategically. Being a very important part of a market-leading, FTSE 100 company.
Our accountants are influential, playing a key part in the decisions we make, the policies we produce and the way that we work. This is your chance to join them. To help steer the UK’s largest insurer towards even greater success.

Applications close 5th December 2021. Assessment centres will be held in December 2021 and into 2022

Number crunching is for calculators

Accountancy is for pioneers. For people who like to think commercially. Strategically. It’s for people who want to shape tomorrow. To be a force for good. Join us to make your mark. And build a brilliant career.

Why Aviva?

You might think we’re just another boring insurance firm, but we’re not. We don’t show up for work in pressed suits and shiny shoes, or use technical terms just for the sake of it. At Aviva, we’re proud to be different. Proud to say that we’re a diverse mix of cultures, genders, ages, perspectives and ideas.

Most important of all, we’re an organisation with a purpose. We want to lead the way forward in our sector, which is why we focus on being the best we can be. Every day. Together, we’re building a better tomorrow with a little help – a lot, actually – from the leaders of the future.

No matter who you are, where you’re from or what your interests are, you can be sure there’s a place for you at Aviva.

What you can expect

This three-year scheme will see you undertaking one-year placements across different finance teams, including Financial Reporting & Controls, Business Partnering, Taxation and Investments. At the end of the three years, you’ll be a fully-qualified accountant – and a leader in the making.

What you'll be doing

Every decision we make, every policy we produce, every idea about how we work – you’ll influence them all. Along the way, we’ll give you everything you need to become a well-rounded chartered accountant. Get ready for a broad and detailed grounding in the world of commercial accounting. Get ready to explore the unexpected.

Where you’ll be based

You’ll be based in either Norwich or York during your training. They’re both vibrant cities with big communities of ex-students. York is full of history and character – it even has its very own Viking Centre. These days York has its fair share of visitors and it’s also home to a vibrant mix of professionals who probably had something to do with the city being named one of the best places to live by The Sunday Times in 2021. Norwich is a fantastic city too – also steeped in history. It’s super easy to explore on foot and has a beautiful river at its heart. And they both have great offices with fantastic onsite facilities.
But, as lovely as our offices are, you might not need to be there every day. We trust our employees to think for themselves. We create a space where everyone feels comfortable speaking up. We all seek out views that oppose our own. We empower each other to think creatively to solve problems, to make crucial decisions. To work in a way that suits us. That’s why we have Smart Working. It gives you the chance to work from home for some of your working hours, if the placement you are in can support this.
After you qualify, you’ll have the chance to be based in any of our UK offices.

What you’ll need

We’re looking for people who have at least a 2:1. In any subject. We’re big believers that great accountants aren’t just about numbers (you will need a good aptitude for them though). Mostly, we look for people who can bring the kind of fresh perspectives and new ideas that will help us to thrive. If you’re commercial, strategic and keen to learn, get ready for a great career in a great company.

Application process

Our applications are open until 5th December 2021. And we have assessment centres scheduled throughout December and beyond into 2022. We encourage you to get your application in as quickly as possible though, as applications are screened on a rolling basis.

During the application process, we’ll want to hear about what you enjoy doing and what you are good at. And it goes without saying you’ll need to feel a connection with our values.

Sounds good? Great. Here’s what you need to do now.

Ready for the next step?

Life with us means being empowered. Empowered to do great work. Empowered to be yourself. And, in accountancy, empowered to help shape what we do, and how. Up for it?
