Business Leaders Graduate Programme

About us 

We are AXA, the number one global insurance brand (as ranked by Interbrand 2015, for the seventh year running) and a world leader in asset management.

We are constantly transforming our business so that we can protect people better. But to make change happen, to keep moving forwards, we need graduates with drive and ambition. Graduates who want to put their ideas and
creative thinking into practice. Graduates who are determined to Challenge Everything and become future leaders at AXA.

Business Leaders Graduate Programme

The big clue to our Business Leaders programme is its title. Its aim is to develop the leaders of the future by giving them hands-on business experience that accelerates their development. How important is this programme to us? Put it this way, it's sponsored by Amanda Blanc, AXA UK and Ireland Group Chief Executive, and Amanda takes a keen, active and hands-on role.

This two-year programme is made up of three eight-month placements – placements in different AXA operating companies and, in some cases, even at an AXA office overseas. From the off, you'll get involved in challenging, stretching work, in a supportive and stimulating environment. We also send all of our new graduates to our Global Headquarters in Paris where you will spend one day mixing with other AXA graduates from around the world and hearing from our Global Leaders. You will then spend an additional two days at a chateau outside of Paris that doubles as one of our learning centres, where you will work on core elements of graduate development together.

Who should apply?

We'd like you to have a 2:1 degree (or above) in any discipline. But that's not all. We need curious, creative thinkers. Those who are naturally inquisitive and digitally savvy, with a good grasp on technology. As well as the big thinking, the ideas that will change the financial world and help us to constantly improve the way we care for our customers, you do the basics brilliantly. You love a challenge too. Which means that obstacles don't stay obstacles for long. And responsibility? Bring it on.
