The future at Aviva is bright and particularly in Property Claims. This is a trailblazing graduate pathway for Aviva. Come join us and be part of our first ever cohort of graduate Quantity Surveyors and Structural Engineers.
Problem-solving, technical know-how and relationship building are all part of the challenge. But ultimately, these roles are about about being there for our customers when life goes wrong.
Whether you’re providing technical expertise and supporting colleagues with budget negotiations, or reassuring customers by explaining to them how we’ll put things right, you’ll be there in the thick of it, making a real and positive difference to people’s lives.
We’re looking to find and develop 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.
We will support you through your professional exams to become an accredited Structural Engineer (MIStructE or FIStructE) or Quantity Surveyor (RICS).
You’ll be empowered to be yourself. To take control of your own work and your own career. 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.
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.
We are flexible on location and can offer roles in the South East and the Midlands.
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.
This varies depending on which route you take. You’ll either already have a degree in Engineering (or a related field) or be on track to graduate by the end of Summer 2024 and be available for full-time work from September 2024.
In order for you to follow the necessary professional pathways for these roles your degree should be RICS-accredited or recognised by the Institute of Structural Engineers.
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 constantly 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.
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.
