Business management

What is Business Management?

Our Business Management Graduate Programme has been designed to build outstanding talent for management and leadership roles, and give you unrivalled exposure to a whole range of business areas. You’ll have the opportunity to challenge yourself across a variety of areas and develop a range of skills and networks, overseeing projects that deliver value to our business and customers, and creating the commercial and technical know-how that will set you on course to be a future leader.

What skills will I need?

You will need to have the drive and enthusiasm to develop an understanding of each area and our business as a whole. Fantastic team-working, communication, organisational and influencing skills are key as is the desire to seize the initiative, embrace new opportunities and to help make our business the best it can be.

What will I be doing?

During the 27 month programme, you will build a strong understanding of our business, how we assess risk, build and price products, how they are distributed and marketed, and how we deliver to customers when they need us.

Throughout the programme you will build diverse networks across the breadth of the UK business and have unprecedented opportunities to develop and test your skills. You can expect to get to grips with the complexity of claims, learn about underwriting and develop relationships with our customers and brokers. Additionally you can expect to provide our customers with insight, influence the strategic marketing agenda and drive operational excellence.

You will be supported and challenged throughout and will work on key business projects and initiatives ensuring you put the customer at the heart of all we do, embed the Zurich culture and become the best leader you can be.

What can I look forward to?

As a Business Management Graduate you will have the opportunity to take responsibility for a number of projects and business initiatives alongside day-to-day activities. These could include preparing and delivering an insight report to stakeholders, providing solutions for our customers or managing a team looking into new business opportunities. With the right enthusiasm your development could take you almost anywhere.

Where will I be based?

You’ll need to be flexible on location, as some of our businesses require you to work at different sites.
