The Company

Kiln celebrated a significant year in 2012 when we reached a milestone 50 years in business as a leading supplier of insurance and reinsurance in the Lloyd’s market. We head into 2013 with an affirmation from our people that Kiln is a great place to work – by being awarded twentieth place in ‘The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For, 2013’. Kiln offers an excellent work environment, as recognised by our employee survey in 2011, where a staggering 95% of our people responded to say that they enjoy their jobs, and by our two successive placing’s in The Sunday Times Top 100. On top of this, Kiln was also awarded tenth place in the ‘JobsCrowd Top Companies for Graduates to Work for 2012/13’, based on feedback from our own graduates!

Kiln has grown into a truly global company, protecting clients in more than 200 countries, and becoming part of the Tokio Marine Group, one of the largest insurance groups in the world, in 2008. Since 1962, we have built our business on the strength of our underwriting and our relationships.

Our Graduate Roles

Five of our nine underwriting divisional heads originally joined us via our graduate programme. A great place to work? We think so.

Kiln graduates start their career on a minimum two year fixed term structured programme, which is designed to give a thorough grounding in their specialist area, whether that is underwriting, actuarial, IT, or elsewhere within the business. Kiln’s graduate schemes have a well-deserved reputation as being amongst the best training and development programmes within the London insurance market.

Each programme involves a series of rotation placements (usually a minimum of three months each) within the UK, combined with a high standard of education, training and expert advice in-house. All of our graduates get to spend a one month rotation in one of our overseas offices, getting an international education that they wouldn’t find elsewhere.

Generous study leave and an exam-related remuneration structure has been a major factor in the success of our graduate schemes for over 25 years, enabling our trainees to successfully complete their professional qualification examinations (e.g. ACII, BCS Professional Certification, Actuarial qualifications).

The Candidates

Successful Kiln graduates are able to effectively demonstrate their enthusiasm for their chosen graduate career path, and their suitability in line with our core values and graduate competencies. We are looking for graduates with:

  • an excellent academic track record,
  • exceptional interpersonal and communication skills,
  • strong analytical skills, particularly when faced with complex challenges,
  • the ability to share and transfer knowledge openly with others, 
  • natural ability for business-minded decision-making and commercial awareness, and
  • a willingness to take the initiative and accept responsibility for their own actions.
