About Aviva

We’re Aviva, the UK’s No.1 insurer and sixth-largest financial services organisation in the world. We’re here to free people from the fear of uncertainty. Our insurance, savings and investment products help some 31 million customers enjoy life today, knowing that tomorrow is covered.

We’d like to get to know you better. Not just as one of the future stars of our business, but as a person too. In fact, we think that it’s our different backgrounds, interests, thoughts and ideas that have made us the vibrant, thriving business that we are today.

We are looking for a number of well qualified school and college leavers to join us as Trainee Trading Underwriters in our General Insurance Commercial Lines team. These roles will be based across Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds and London. As part of the application process you will be asked to select your preferred location(s).

With a reputation that stretches back 300 years and a total focus on what our customers want, we’ve become the world’s sixth-largest insurance group and the biggest in the UK. What makes us different is that, despite our size, we work hard to recognise the individual needs of our people – valuing them for what they do, rewarding them for their contribution and encouraging them to achieve their career goals.

Various locations

A real job from day one. A professional qualification in three to four years. Long-term prospects. And no student debt. If you want to build a career as an Underwriter, with the UK’s biggest insurer, we’re the smart alternative to university.

About The Aviva Apprentice Programme

We will always need experts. So we’ve created the Aviva Apprentice Programme to help develop them. You could join us as an Underwriting Apprentice and learn how to assess risk and underwrite our various insurance policies.

You’ll develop life-changing skills and gain a professional qualification that will open up as many – if not more – opportunities as a degree.

With the help of structured training and experienced mentors, you’ll learn how to work independently, build your professional know-how and grow in confidence. And you won’t have to worry about facing a tough job market or a mountain of student debt. In fact, by the end of four years, you could be on the same money as someone joining our graduate scheme – but you’ll already have vital professional qualifications under your belt.
