With so many professions to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you, so why don’t you give the international insurance business a try.

Get a taste of what could be your future career

What does one of the world's largest insurers (that’s us) do on a daily basis? Come and see for yourself – live and in the flesh. With our work experience placement, you will get to know us and our industry very well, gaining impressions and experience that will help you discover your dream profession.
You will spend two weeks observing our experts close up as they do their day-to-day work. You will help us out by being committed and open to new ideas. You will also try your hand at work of your own, for example a group project.
Personal mentor
In addition to your colleagues, a personal mentor will be at your side to help you get the answers, impressions and information that can assist you in finding the right career path.
Weekly pay
Work should be rewarding – and rewarded, which is why we will pay you €150 per week of work as a reward for your contribution.
