Aviva has opened applications for its 2013 apprentice programme, which has places for 24 A-level and college leavers.
Aimed at high achieving 18 year-olds, the programme is designed to give young people an alternative to University with on-the-job experience and support to gain industry recognised qualifications.
Positions are available in underwriting and actuarial within the group’s general insurance business, with salaries staring at £14,500 plus a £500 welcome bonus.
Aviva first piloted its apprentice programme last year, enabling 21 A-level leavers to embark on careers with the company.
The insurer’s human resources director, Rob Briggs, comments: “We carried out extensive research with students and teachers to fully understand how we could develop a programme to best suit and attract high achieving A-level students, whilst matching the needs of the business.
“We received over 500 entries last year, so I am really pleased we are continuing the programme into 2013.”
This year, apprentice roles are available across the UK, from Southampton to Glasgow.
