Full job description

Welcome to the Professional Trainee Scheme. First things first: what exactly is the Professional Trainee Scheme? And secondly, why should you apply? In short, it’s a training scheme for graduates and those looking for a career change. It’s a three year scheme where you’ll rotate through a number of placements.

Different placements mean different perspectives of our business, different skills and knowledge to be gained, different opportunities to be explored. The Scheme is a real investment in you. As well as on-the-job learning, working with some of the best in the business, we'll sponsor and support you to complete professional qualifications. Everyone on the Scheme takes the Certificate in Insurance qualification. From there, you’ll progress onto a professional qualification specific to the area of the business that you’re working in. The Scheme also helps us to find and develop people who may, one day, lead and drive our £billion, award-winning organisation on to further success.
