Graduate Leadership Programme

See where your talent can take you. Find a career that exceeds your expectations.


Graduate Leadership Programme

Learn about Aviva from all sides of the business, and grow as we grow. We’ll give you the tools, resources and support you need to help your customers and colleagues.

We’ll also give you the freedom to make the right decisions for your career, and push our organisation forward within the industry.

Applications close 21st November 2021. Assessment centres will be held in January 2022.

What leadership looks like, according to our leaders

Our graduates ask their senior team members what it takes to be a good leader.

About the programme

Our Leadership programme runs for two years. During that time, you’ll rotate every 8 months into a new business area and gain a breadth of invaluable experiences along the way.

We can guarantee that one of your rotations will be in a customer-facing role. That’s because our customers are core to our purpose as a business, and we want you to learn first-hand how we deliver great outcomes for them. And what better way to do it than leading one of the brilliant teams in our customer contact centres?

Your other rotations could be in data science, transformation or underwriting, to name a few, and we’ll work with you to structure a programme of experiences that supports your ambitions and our strategy.

As you progress through the programme, you’ll take on real responsibilities in real time. You could be running your own team (with tons of support) in one week, and leading the way on a new project or initiative the next.

One thing’s for certain: you’ll be learning and developing every step of the way, and developing others too.

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 an average day looks like

No two days are the same at Aviva. Depending on the area of the business you’re working in, you might spend some days solving complex problems for your team or your customers, and other days liaising directly with customers or your team.

Regardless of the team you work in, you’ll discover what leadership looks like day-to-day.

Where you'll be based

We don’t want geography to limit the opportunities or experiences that you need under your belt to make you a great Aviva leader. That’s why, for this programme, we ask applicants to be flexible and encourage you to be willing to relocate to any of the locations listed below. Rotations will all take place in your home country, in one of the following regions:

UK applications: Bristol, Norwich, Sheffield or York – there may be a small number of roles in London too

Over the last 18 months, most of our colleagues have been working remotely due to Covid-19. But as we start to open up our offices more broadly, and as restrictions lift, we anticipate post-pandemic working to be a blend of office and home. If the placement you’re on can support it, there may be a chance to work from home for some of your hours.

What you'll need

At Aviva, we’re passionate about the work we do. We like to get involved, and we’re looking for graduates who feel the same way. Talented and driven people who understand the needs of our customers, and go above and beyond to meet them.

You’ll either already have a degree in any discipline, or will be graduating this year and be able to start work in September 2022. You’ll need to be flexible about where you work and willing to relocate to a different city in your home country if offered. You should also be proficient in speaking and writing the native language of country you are applying for.

What you'll get

Our colleagues work hard, so we want to work hard for them by providing great rewards and benefits. These may differ from market to market, but you’ll be able to tailor your rewards so that you can get even more out of working at Aviva. Benefits available could include:
