Summer internship

An internship with us means real experience and responsibility. You’ll gain an insight into both Lloyd’s and the global insurance industry, all of which will put you in an excellent position for our strongly linked graduate programmes. If you’re in your penultimate year at university, you can join us for this paid summer internship, running for eight weeks from June to August. 

You’ll be placed in a single business area, either in the marketplace or in the Lloyd’s corporation itself. Here you’ll be given the opportunity to build up your skills and experience, either on particular projects or helping out with everyday operations. 

What you’ll be doing

You’ll be a key member of your team and have a great opportunity to see how Lloyd’s works in action. What you’ll actually be doing on your placement varies depending on the area you join. For example, in Underwriting Performance, you could be working closely with companies in the market to evaluate their business plans. Or you could be supporting the web team on the website and Lloyd’s social media channels in Communication. Elsewhere, you might be exploring trends in insurance claims. Whatever you do, you’ll be learning and building on your skills as you discover new areas of interest.

What you’ll gain from us

Wherever you’re placed, you’ll benefit from an enlightening introduction not just to Lloyd’s, but to the specialist insurance industry as a whole. Through networking sessions and workshops, you’ll also start to build a network of contacts; invaluable as you start to think about the world of work. 

You’ll have the support of your line manager and one of the HR team, both of whom will be more than happy to answer any questions and point you in the right direction. If we’re impressed by your work on the internship (and you’re equally impressed with us), we may even offer you a guaranteed place on the graduate scheme for the following year.

What you’ll need

To join us as an intern, you’ll be predicted to achieve at least a 2:2 (or equivalent) in any degree subject. We need individuals that can communicate effectively, are keen to learn and excited by our organisation and the opportunities we have to offer.
