Number crunching is for calculators. Accountancy is for creative problem solvers with big ideas who want to make their mark. Does that sound like you?

Our accountants are influential. They are a part of a team that play a key role in crafting the Aviva of the future; they influence the decisions we make, the policies we produce and the way we work.

You don’t need to have studied Accountancy at university to become an Accountant at Aviva - we truly believe new insights and perspectives are invaluable. So whatever your degree, as long as you are curious, customer focused and passionate about learning, we can teach you the rest!

As you would imagine, we are working flexibly and remotely at the moment; using the technology to enable us to continue to collaborate with colleagues, and engage with our customers. Flexible working is ingrained in our culture, and has been for quite some time, but we would anticipate that during your training, your office base will be either Norwich or York. They are beautiful, buzzing towns in which to embark your career and once you’ve qualified, you will have the chance to broaden your horizons in any of our offices around the UK, or maybe even further afield.

Your role, more specifically:

You’ll train with us for three years, soaking up information from our specialists – but of course, we hope you stay with us for years to come as so many of our colleagues do! You will do three, one-year placements across different finance teams, including Financial Reporting & Controls, Business Partnering, Taxation and Investments. In other words, with us you’ll become a fully qualified accountant, a leader in the making, and you’ll hold the qualification and hands-on experience to launch your career.

What’s in it for you?

  • ICAEW qualification (a Level 7 qualification equivalent to a master’s degree) with exams paid for by Aviva
  • A starting salary of £26K with regular salary increases
  • Annual performance-related bonus
  • Up to 50 paid study days
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • 29 days’ holiday, plus bank-holidays
  • Discounts on all Aviva products
  • Share Save scheme

What do we need from you?

  • 2:1 degree in any subject
  • 120 UCAS points from 3 A-levels (not including General Studies)
  • A passion for business, finance and insurance
  • The confidence and determination to lead
  • Unbeatable people skills
  • A creative, agile mind
  • Initiative and drive to get things done

Your next steps:

Press apply to be taken through to our online application where you will answer a short questionnaire about your motivations. You will also be able to attach your CV. If you match our criteria, we’ll send you some numerical and critical reasoning tests. Pass those and you’ll have a video interview. The final stage will be a virtual assessment day in early 2021.

Impress us and we’ll impress you. Be empowered to start your career right with Aviva.

Closing Date: 13th December.
