Meet Katie, a Graduate Trainee Chartered Accountant


Katie Foulds

Graduate Trainee Chartered Accountant


After graduating with a degree in Biochemistry, I wanted something new. The Aviva Accountancy Graduate Scheme gave me a chance to advance the data-based problem-solving skills I’d learnt during my studies, but also develop my financial and business knowledge as I rotated through my placements.

I’ve already been involved in expense modelling, business partnering, competitor analysis, and project management, along with learning how to use and interpret data from key planning analytics tools. I have recently started my third placement in Capital and Investment Management, which may be my favourite one yet! The chance to study for a professional qualification alongside all this was something I really valued.

Since day one, I have felt valued and welcome at Aviva. Everyone I’ve met has been keen on hearing my input and I’m always encouraged to challenge the way things are done. I’m looking forward to developing my career further at Aviva.
