Ignite your career right now

Ready to get a head start on your future? Our placements make it easy.

If you are in your penultimate year at university, we have some brilliant opportunities to help get some experience under your belt and kick start your career.

At Aviva, we’re all about shaping a better, brighter tomorrow. And with the opportunities, flexibility, training, and support we offer, you’ll find that you’ll have everything you need to ignite your talents.


Applications open at different times, so please keep checking this page for updates. While we love someone being proactive, we can’t accept CVs or speculative applications outside of the application window for each programme.

Applications will close when we’ve received sufficient applications, so it’s best to apply as early as you can.

A bit about us

We’re the UK’s largest insurance company with over 18 million customers who rely on us to help them handle life’s unexpected events and prepare for the future.

You might think the prospect of working in insurance sounds ‘boring’ and that you’ll have to wear shirts and smart shiny shoes every day. The reality is a world away, just ask any of our colleagues. Making life better for all our customers is exciting and rewarding with different things to do, challenges to face, innovative solutions to find every working day. And we’re all individuals here, proud to be part of a diverse, forward-thinking business that lets people make an impact – no matter how long you’ve been here. And the only people who wear shiny shoes are the people who love wearing shiny shoes – our dress code is pretty relaxed.

Pick your placement

Whether you’ve got a summer to spend with us or a whole placement year, we have opportunities to suit. And whichever area of our business you choose to explore, you’ll find yourself working alongside experts, tackling real challenges, and doing work that will make a difference to our customers. After all, they’re at the heart of everything we do.

Every opportunity will add to your academic studies as you build your strengths, knowledge, and skills with hands-on experience and real-world insight. And if you’re not exactly sure what you want your next step to be, that’s OK. These opportunities are about exploring. We actively welcome applications from a variety of disciplines because we want people with different perspectives and experiences.

Our placements provide an excellent introduction to our graduate programmes. So, when you finish you may be offered an invitation to join us in a role after you graduate.


If you’re in your penultimate year at university, our 10-week summer internships can give you a great insight into how you can ignite your career at Aviva. Make a great impression and you could be offered a graduate role starting in 2025 (after you complete your studies).

What you can expect

Whichever placement you choose, you’ll be making an impact from the moment you join us. You’ll begin with a programme induction before meeting your team. From there, you’ll have tremendous scope to gain practical work experience, have your ideas listened to, and your contribution valued.

During your programme, you’ll benefit from:

  • support from a line leader and Buddy
  • the knowledge and experience of a mentor
  • on-the-job training
  • opportunities to network with peers and senior Aviva colleagues
  • lots of ways to learn including via the Aviva University and LinkedIn learning.

Discover our locations

Our placements are based in some of the UK’s most vibrant cities, all of which are great places to live and work. Not all roles are available in every location. So, you may need to be flexible about where you work and willing to temporarily relocate if you don’t live within commuting distance. Details for each programme will list the locations that are available.

At Aviva, we blend working from the office with working from home. We call it smart working. Three days in the office and two days from home each week is a typical example, but that can vary.

Aviva is for everyone

We are inclusive – we want applications from people with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Excited, but not sure you tick every box? Research tells us that women, particularly, feel this way. So, regardless of gender, why not apply? And if you’re in a job share just apply as a pair.

If we can provide additional support or reasonable adjustments to make the process smoother for you, please let us know. Contact us on 0121 234 7609 or email avivaearlycareers@aviva.com.
