Global Graduate Leadership Programme
We’ve got big plans for our future. We want to build a stronger, more sustainable business and become the most recommended name in the market. To do that, we need ambitious and determined leaders. Leaders who inspire us to dream more, learn more, do more and become more. Future leaders like you. And that’s where our Global Graduate Leadership Programme comes in.
About the programme
Aviva’s Global Graduate Leadership Programme will give you a broad experience of our whole business as you move across projects, teams and functional areas, locally, regionally and globally through three 12 month assignments. Getting to grips with our products and how they’re distributed, learning how our global markets operate, leading your own team under the guidance of a mentor; the exposure you gain throughout the three rotations will allow you to do more, learn more and become more. It’s a chance to discover your strengths too, because after each rotation, your line manager will measure your performance against objectives, who alongside your business champion will offer you guidance and advice, and determine your next 12 month project to ensure you continue to develop.
On your first rotation, you’ll get to grips with market based functions like Sales, Distribution and Product in your home country, discovering how we deliver the products and services that have helped to make us industry leaders. On rotation two and three you’ll join either a central team, possibly in your home country or overseas, and take on real responsibility in everything from HR to IT to Marketing, or prove your leadership skills as you head up a local or international team under the guidance of a senior mentor. Each year your performance will be assessed against your peers and once you’ve successfully completed the full three years of the programme, you’ll be offered a leadership role.
With opportunities in all areas of the business, you don’t need a specific degree. Whatever you’re studying and wherever your passions lie, as long as you’re expecting a 2.1 or above (or the equivalent, for example GPA 2.5 and above), have the ambition to lead at the highest levels and the drive to make an impact on the future of a growing business, we’d like to hear from you. You will need the propensity to work with different cultures and the flexibility to move globally, though. And if you’re multi-lingual, then that’s all the better. Joining us, your future is in good hands.
We’re looking for enthusiastic, ambitious, dynamic graduates to join our Global Graduate Leadership Programme. Graduates with the genuine aspiration to develop the skills that will equip you for leadership roles.
