Aviva provides graduate job boost
Thursday, 22 April 2010
Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in business management may be interested to hear that Aviva, the insurance firm, has invited 35 business undergraduates from seven universities to attend a two-day assessment centre.
Following the centre, the top ten "gold finalists" will join a six-week summer internship with Aviva and leading financial adviser firms, FT Adviser reports.
In a boost to graduates who thought that leading employers had restricted the amount of degree-level employment opportunities they offer, the firm initially asked over 70 entrants to present their case via a writing exercise before whittling the list down.
Angela Seymour-Jackson, intermediary and partnerships director for Aviva, told the website: "The programme makes it easier for quality firms to attract high-calibre graduates through raising the profile of the sector and encouraging graduates to pursue a career in financial advice.
"The future adviser programme aims to prepare graduates to get off to a dynamic and successful start with a quality advisory firm."
