Change & Technology Management - Graduate Development Programme 2022



This is a fantastic opportunity to work closely with our business analysts, project management or IT architecture teams. We’ll give you exposure to different roles to help you understand the ways change is managed in our business, and build your portfolio of technical, business and leadership skills.

What can I look forward to?

You will have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of projects. After just a few years, some graduates are now managing projects with a £1m budget.

You might be working with colleagues from across the world on initiatives which affect our business globally. You could develop a career as a Programme Manager or become a Senior Business Analyst or Architect with responsibility for shaping our future use of technology. There are no limits to what you can achieve with the right capability and motivation.

We want to develop future change and technology leaders that understand the breadth of our business and develop an understanding of how they contribute to great customer protection and outcomes. You will have the opportunity to gain exposure to a number of business areas to experience this first-hand.

Business Analysis - you'll work with people from across the business to draw out requirements, perform impact analysis, and provide insights into the ways we deliver business solutions.

Project Management - you’ll be responsible for driving business change and IT projects of varying scope and size, from initiation to delivery. You might be heading up a critical workstream for one of our major strategic programmes or have total ownership of a smaller project.

Architecture - our Architecture team have responsibility to provide Zurich the foundations on which to build new capability and excel in the marketplace. Your work in the team could vary between shaping our strategy and target operating models across the enterprise, to designing and implementing innovative and cost-effective solutions against our IT landscape.

Service Management – you’ll be at the sharp end of Zurich’s IT operational support helping to transition new products and services into live products and services and managing the relationship between one of the UK business units and our suppliers to ensure our customers get the best possible experience. No two days will ever be the same, and it’s also a great opportunity to increase your exposure across the Zurich business.

Over this three-year rotational programme, you will work in Whiteley and Swindon on a rotational basis. But no matter where you are, you’ll get to learn from some of our most talented colleagues in the business, who will encourage and guide you to be your best.

  • £28,000 starting salary
  • 25 days holiday plus an additional 3 volunteering days
  • Full private medical cover
