Aviva Underwriting Apprentice – Level 4


Location: Birmingham, Glasgow, London, Manchester, Norwich, Belfast, Worthing.

At Aviva, we’re best known for providing insurance. And there are lots of factors that affect how much it costs. This includes the type of cover being provided, the likelihood of something bad happening, the value of what’s being insured, and the customer’s history of making claims in the past.

Our underwriters take all this, and more, into account. They assess whether it’s something we’d be comfortable to insure and, if so, how much we would charge our customer for it.

Join us as an Underwriting Apprentice and you’ll be learning from some of the most skilled underwriters in the insurance industry. What’s more, you’ll be able to earn a salary while working towards qualifications and enjoy a permanent role from day one.

What does it involve?

We don’t expect you to have had any previous underwriting experience – our structured programme will teach you everything you need to know. Right now, we are more interested in your passion, enthusiasm, and willingness to learn.

Underwriting spans all areas of our insurance business.  As an Underwriting Apprentice here, you’ll be working alongside and learning from some of the most skilled underwriters in commercial insurance.

We will teach you how to work with our customers and you’ll get to spend time building relationships with our brokers (and other parts of the business), helping secure new business while ensuring our existing customers get the best solutions, tailored to their wants and needs.



What’s in it for you?

  • A salary of £23,900 per year
  • Paid study time and support towards professional qualifications
  • A permanent job from the start
  • A great support network to help you grow into your role
  • 25 days holiday, plus bank holidays
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Discounts on all Aviva products
  • Eligible for a performance-related bonus
  • Flexible working and wellbeing support
  • Paid volunteering time to get involved in projects and local communities


What do we look for?  
To join us on this apprenticeship, you’ll need (or be on track to achieve) at least two A-Levels or three Scottish Highers at grades C or above. Or have an equivalent Level 3 qualification.

You will also need at least five GCSEs or Scottish National 5s at grades A*-C (9-4) or have equivalent qualifications. These must include English and Maths.

New insights, perspectives, and diversity of thought are invaluable to us. Which is why you don’t need any previous experience in underwriting to apply.

Instead, we’re looking for:

  • A confident communicator
  • Someone who can adapt well to different tasks and situations
  • The ability to work independently and as part of a team.

Most importantly, you’ll need to be naturally curious, keen to take the lead when it comes to your own development, and excited by the prospect of building a long-term career with Aviva.
