Allianz Holdings welcomes 37 graduates to its first hybrid working graduate programme
Authored by Allianz
Enrolled across six schemes, Allianz Holdings has welcomed 37 new graduates to its first hybrid working graduate programme. Following the launch of Allianz’s new ‘Ways of Working’ model, the graduates will enjoy flexibility, as well as gaining wide-ranging skills and knowledge and extensive exposure to the UK business.
The schemes for 2022 are as follows:
- Allianz Rotational Graduate Programme
- Underwriting Graduate Programme
Alongside their rotation of business areas, each graduate will study for a relevant professional qualification such as CII, CIMA, ACCA and FIA. They will also receive support and training in core professional skills.
As part of the onboarding process, the graduates spent time at Allianz’s head office in Guildford, meeting senior leaders, learning about the business and networking with current graduates. They officially began their placements on Monday 12 September.
Jules Harrison, Allianz graduate talent manager, commented: “We’re really proud of our longstanding graduate scheme and didn’t want it to be a casualty of Covid-19 restrictions. We adapted the programme so that our 2020 and 2021 cohorts could work virtually and we’ve taken the learnings from those two years so that our new intake will get the best of both worlds. However, it’s been really exciting to start running more in-person events again and we’ve noticed that many current graduates are choosing to come into the office to be part of the wider Allianz community.
“Regardless of virtual or in-person, we support all of our graduates and the amount of talent the scheme continues to attract demonstrates how important it is. I’d like to say welcome to the 2022 intake and wish them all the best of luck as they begin their Allianz careers.”
