Information Technology (IT) graduate scheme


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.

Allianz is committed to supporting students in their studies. You’ll undertake a great technical training programme aligned with your rotations and we’ll fully fund and support you through a professional qualification with the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) where you’ll gain your Certificate in Insurance (Cert CII), giving you that all-important financial services knowledge.

You’ll have the opportunity to attend leadership and development programmes with your peers from across the business, as well as opportunities to meet and learn from colleagues across the Allianz Group. Your further steps with us will follow our IT Professional Development Framework which has been accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS).

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.

Throughout [the placement], I made use of my Allianz LinkedIn Learning subscription, whereby I attended courses to enhance my soft and technical skills. I also attended several career and development courses which improved my confidence and gave me opportunities to network with senior management.
