Accountants at Aviva add value right across the business, supporting different departments to achieve their goals, influencing key decisions, crafting and shaping policy and improving the way we work.
Our scheme provides ambitious graduates with a meaningful and encouraging route in which to gain your ICAEW qualification through the Level 7 Accounting Professional Apprenticeship, which is equivalent to a Masters degree. The programme will give you the opportunity to become a well-rounded Chartered Accountant and help you launch a high achieving career, grounded in both an insurance specific and more general understanding of accountancy, finance and commercial business.
What you will do:
You will complete your one-year placements in different Finance teams, based in Norwich or York. You can be assured that the placements will be dynamic, relevant and substantial, and provide you outstanding breadth of experience to lay the foundations of your career. As valued member of the finance team from day one you will take ownership of the work you undertake, with clear objectives and responsibilities.
Alongside these placements you'll undertake your studies. Modules cover everything from Financial Reporting to Auditing, Law to Taxation – and each end with an exam. Don't worry though, you'll be able to concentrate fully on them, as you'll be taught by an external education company away from the office, and your manager, buddy and fellow cohort will be encouraging and supportive every step of the way. By the time you're done, you'll have a broad and detailed grounding in the world of commercial accounting as well as practical experience that will stand you in good stead throughout your career.
When you have finished your three years on the scheme, you will be a qualified Chartered Accountant and we will work with you and collaborate with you to secure your ideal post-graduate role within Aviva and continue to support you in achieving your career aspirations.
