Technology internship

Mouse on pad

Welcome to the technology section of the Zurich UK General Insurance (UKGI) Internship Program.

During this 10 week paid summer internship you will see how we shape our approach to our systems landscape, which is core for the future success of our business. You will also gain an understanding of how our IT systems enable capability and support our business.

Here at Zurich Insurance, technology is fundamental to our business and a core driver of success within the market place. Our technology internship program combines on-the job learning and formal personal and professional development, designed to provide valuable work experience and transferable skills to successful candidates.

If successful, you will be placed in one of our core teams - Project Implementation, Business Analysis, Architecture, Data & Analytics or Service Management. Collaborating closely with key business stakeholders on important business priorities will provide valuable mentoring and networking opportunities.

At the end of your internship you will be expected to deliver an overview of your experience, including the highlights and observations as well as your future career plans and aspirations. What’s more, if you impress us over summer we may offer you a place on Zurich’s technology graduate scheme.

Whilst you’ll learn about our project management framework, underpinned by PMP, you’ll also get to see how we manage IT delivery with our key suppliers.

If placed in this team you could be supporting the documentation of technical requirements for a brand new claims system or helping to developing use cases for our business users. You will get first-hand experience the tools and techniques that are used by business analysts on critical projects and an understanding of the professional business analysis methodology.

Architecture

The Architecture team has a real responsibility to provide Zurich the foundations on which to build new capability and excel in the market place. They help design and implement innovative solutions whilst ensuring that our critical legacy systems are optimised and reliable. Ensuing that the infrastructure is cost effective is also an important task for the team.

Service Management

Our Service Management team plays an integral part in ensuring the stability of our applications. As Zurich works closely with a number of strategic and local outsourcing partners, our management of day to day service and annual contract and supply management is critical to the business. This is a great opportunity to develop your negotiation, problem solving and relationship management skills whilst getting a broad understanding of support needs across the business.

Who should apply?

Our scheme is aimed at undergraduates studying for an IT related degree with a keen interest in the business and commercial world. You’ll need to be good at communicating at all levels, have a ‘can do’ attitude and be able to demonstrate good analytical and problem solving skills.
