Global Graduate Leadership Programme
We want to help you become one of our leaders of the future. Providing you with comprehensive leadership training, the programme will give you a broad experience of our whole business. You’ll move across projects, teams and functional areas, locally, regionally and globally through two 12-month assignments. And, as you develop a broad understanding of our business and our products, you’ll be gaining the strategic and global outlook that we need from our future leaders. It’s a chance for you to unleash your full potential.
Based in your home country, the first year of your programme will see you develop your self-awareness and leadership skills, along with your awareness of Aviva’s core principles. Gaining insight into how our industry works, and developing a deep understanding of our core functions, such as Sales, Strategy and Distribution, you’ll get to grips with our overall strategy and collective purpose. This will give you the foundation of knowledge and experience you need to start becoming a business leader.
You’ll start your second year working in an overseas team in one of our 15 global markets. At this stage you’ll start taking on real responsibility, either in a local market team or a central functional role. You’ll also start enhancing your leadership skills, which could include running your own team or project all under the guidance of a senior mentor.
Where could you work?
Both rotations are one year in length. They could be local, regional or international and are dependent on our business needs, so it’s important that you’re open and willing to rotate into any role or market.
While you’ll have the opportunity to work across any of our 15 global markets in your second year, your first rotation, depending on where you apply, will be based in one of the following cities:
Europe: Milan, Paris, Warsaw
UK & Ireland: Bristol, Eastleigh, London, Norwich, Perth, Sheffield, York
Training & developing
As a graduate, you’ll have the opportunity to build your skills through a combination of face-to-face, e-learning and webinar training platforms, as well as through day-to-day tasks, challenges, practice and networking. Over the course of your programme, we’ll help to grow your leadership skills, empowering you to develop your potential and lead our future growth.
