Information technology (IT)

In a world full of digital disruptors, technology is vital to the continued success of Allianz. Our IT department works with the business to design and deliver innovative technology solutions, ensuring that Allianz remains at the forefront of the insurance sector.  

Over two years, you’ll complete four placements and work on a wide range of transformational business projects across several areas of IT. During this time you’ll be learning, developing your skills and helping to solve real business challenges through innovation - all with plenty of support from experienced managers and peers.

You’ll be able to see for yourself how your work adds value to the business, applying your newly-enhanced knowledge to positively impact and improve our future. By the end of the scheme you will have developed an understanding of project management, business analysis, information security, development and infrastructure management -  and be fully prepared for a career in IT.

While primarily based in our Guildford head office, there will be exposure to, and potentially opportunities to work in other Allianz offices, including in India.
