Business Management graduate pathway

The thinking behind our future.

Find a career that exceeds your expectations.

Business Management. What’s it all about?

Big strategic thinking. That’s what’s at the heart of our Business Management graduate careers. From unlocking the potential of our people, to unleashing the full power of digital marketing through the latest technology, we think bold. So we like bold thinkers. Creative. Analytical. Strategic. There’s room for it all here.

Whether you’re championing sustainability or developing our Group commercial strategy, you’ll work to build a strong bond of trust with our 18 million customers who rely on us to protect what’s important to them and prepare for the future. In turn, we’ll trust you to help drive our business forward.

Applications for the Business Management graduate pathway are now closed.

Grow with us

We’re looking to find and develop the stars of the future. But rather than being just another graduate development programme, here you’ll join us in a permanent role from day one.

As your skills and experience grow, there’ll be lots of development opportunities tailored specifically to you and your ambitions, which will give you the foundations you need to succeed.

You’ll be empowered to be yourself. To take control of your own work and your progression. Show us what you can do and we’ll be right behind you, giving you more and more responsibility, and opportunities to shape your future and that of the industry.

There are six different Business Management specialisms that you can learn about below. You don’t have to choose which one you’ll apply for at this stage. We can help guide you in the right direction for you to pick as you progress through the application process.

Why Aviva?

You might think we’re just another boring insurance firm, but nothing could be further from the truth. We don’t show up for work in pressed suits and shiny shoes. 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 our future leaders.

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. We’re passionate and committed, just like you are; we’re the first major insurer worldwide to target Net Zero carbon by 2040 and we’re committed to the community too – we’re aiming for £10bn UK infrastructure and real estate investment by the end of 2023.

Where you’ll be based

In most of our Business Management roles, you can be based in our Bristol, Eastleigh, London, Norwich, Sheffield or York offices. However, our Strategy Graduates are only based in London, and our Marketing teams only in Norwich or London.

Wherever you’re based, the likelihood is you’ll balance time in the office with working from home. We call this Smart Working. Three days in the office and two days from home is typical, but this will vary between teams. When you join us, your leader will take time to discuss this with you, and agree what works best for you, your team, and the business.

As we adopt this Smart Working approach, it’s important to note that you will still need to live within commuting distance of the relevant office. That way you’ll get to spend time with your team in person, as well as virtually, and get access to the right internal support networks to help you to succeed.

What you’ll need

This varies depending on which route you take. You’ll either already have a degree (in any subject) or be on track to graduate by the end of Summer 2024 and be available for full-time work from September 2024.

Your planning skills will be on point but come with the flexibility to roll with changes and solve problems as and when they come up. You’ll also be brilliant at communicating your ideas and convincing others to get right behind them.

Most important of all, is that you’re consistently looking to improve the way things are done. Whether it’s through your studies, your work experience, or your outside interests, we’ll want to see how you’ve helped make something better.

What you’ll get

Application process

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.

If we can help to make the process smoother for you with any additional support or reasonable adjustments, please just let us know by emailing avivaearlycareers@aviva.com.
