Allianz welcomes 30 new graduates to its business


Enrolled across six schemes Allianz has welcomed 30 new graduates to its programme. With degrees ranging from Business Management through to Sports and Physical Education the graduates will gain extensive exposure to the business and wide ranging career skills.

The schemes are as follows:

  • Actuarial
  • Underwriting
  • Finance
  • IT
  • Claims
  • Management Trainee

New for 2019 is a graduate technical underwriting scheme entitled ‘a home for those who love data’ recognising the growing importance of data and pricing skills alongside traditional underwriting methods.

Alongside their rotation of business areas each graduate will also study for a relevant professional qualification such as CII, CIMA, ACCA and FIA. They will also receive support and training in core professional skills.

Last week they took part in an intensive induction week with presentations from CEO, Jon Dye, and members of the management board as part of their welcome to Allianz.

Allianz’s graduate talent manager, Jules Harrison commented: “We’re really proud of this scheme and the amount of talent that it attracts. More than 500 graduates have joined the Allianz programme since it began in 2000 and many remain with the business today, which really demonstrates the value of investing in our people.”

“I’m delighted to welcome the 2019 intake and it’s particularly pleasing that eight of our former summer interns will be amongst them. The experiences they will gain over the next few years will be invaluable and we wish them the very best of luck as they start their placements.”

Applications are now open for Allianz’s 2020 Graduate and Internship programmes. Further information is available at here.
