Change and technology management
What is Change and Technology Management?
We’re looking for bright, enthusiastic and ambitious graduates to join our Change and Technology Management stream. You can expect considerable responsibility very quickly – perhaps heading up a workstream in one of our large businesses or IT transformation programmes; developing your technical and analytical skills to help drive the implementation of critical business decisions; and working with major strategic suppliers.
We’ll help you build a strong portfolio of technical, change management and leadership skills to drive your career in a fast-moving, competitive and business-focused environment. We’ll give you the support you need to help us transform our business. In return, we’ll expect you to make an impact right from the start.
What skills will I need?
The ability to grasp complex concepts in a business environment is a must and you will really need fantastic team-working, communication, organisational and influencing skills, together with real enthusiasm and drive. While an interest in technology is desirable, you don’t need to have an IT-related degree to work with us.
What will I be doing?
We’ll give you exposure to different roles to help you understand the ways change is managed in our business, and build your portfolio of technical, business and leadership skills.
We want to develop future change and technology leaders that understand the breadth of our business and develop an understanding of how they contribute to great customer protection and outcomes. You will have the opportunity to gain exposure to a number of business areas to experience this first hand.
Business Analysis - you'll work with people from across the business to draw out requirements, perform impact analysis, and provide insights into the ways we deliver business solutions.
Project Management - you’ll be responsible for driving business change and IT projects of varying scope and size, from initiation to delivery. You might be heading up a critical workstream for one of our major strategic programmes, or have total ownership of a smaller project.
Architecture - our Architecture team have responsibility to provide Zurich the foundations on which to build new capability and excel in the market place. Your work in the team could vary between shaping our strategy and target operating models across the enterprise, to designing and implementing innovative and cost-effective solutions against our IT landscape.
Service Management – you’ll be at the sharp end of Zurich’s IT operational support helping to transition new products and services into live products and services, and managing the relationship between one of the UK business units and our suppliers to ensure our customers get the best possible experience. No two days will ever be the same, and it’s also a great opportunity to increase your exposure across the Zurich business.
What can I look forward to?
You will have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of projects. After just a few years, some graduates are now managing projects with a £1m budget. You might be working with colleagues from across the world on initiatives which affect our business globally. You could develop a career as a Programme Manager or become a Senior Business Analyst or Architect with responsibility for shaping our future use of technology. There are no limits to what you can achieve with the right capability and motivation.
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.
