    Swiss Re‘s graduates programme provided me with an excellent platform to start my professional career in the insurance industry.

Also, I was given the chance to contribute to a number of high-visibility projects that exposed me to colleagues from all levels, up to senior management. In addition to the training, the job rotation was a highlight. All in all, Swiss Re‘s graduates programme offers experiential learning at its best in a global environment with the possibility to start a successful career in a group of likeminded young people from all over the world!.

  • Celene Qian, Graduate, Singapore

    I joined the graduates programme in 2017. A lot of consideration, planning, and resources are put into this programme. I had zero knowledge about the re/insurance industry. Luckily Swiss Re offers comprehensive trainings to prepare us. In addition, external trainers equipped us with soft skills, such as effective stakeholder management and sales techniques. Throughout the programme, there are many opportunities for us to network. As a graduate, I feel I have the full freedom to explore and grow, meanwhile I‘m provided with sufficient support and guidance.

  • Ignacio Landerreche, Casualty Treaty Underwriter - Graduate, Mexico City

    One of the things I like the most about Swiss Re‘s graduates programme is the opportunity to experience an international working environment; the programme allowed me to connect with people from different nationalities with multiple backgrounds. The graduates programme also focuses on showing us the different activities of Swiss Re, not only  by having trainings with experts on multiple subjects, but also by allowing us to do rotations in different teams all around the globe. I entered as an underwriter in the Latin American Market in Mexico and I had the opportunity to rotate in a Group Risk Management Team in Switzerland. I  believe that Swiss Re's graduates programme is a great starting point for my career and I would highly recommend it.

  • Nicholas Free, Strategy and Operations Graduate, Armonk

    Starting my career with Swiss Re has been a fascinating experience that has opened my eyes to all different aspects of the insurance industry. As a graduate within Strategy & Operations, I work with the company's senior leaders to define, plan and execute strategies aligned with Swiss Re's vision and mission. In addition to this, Swiss Re‘s graduates programme provides training in Zurich, regular interaction with international colleagues, and an opportunity to gain exposure to other areas of the company through rotations. I learned a lot about Claims Management and Facultative Underwriting, both critical to Swiss Re's business.

    Swiss Re's graduates programme simply goes above and beyond to ensure that you come out the other side with a more holistic understanding of the industry, a diverse and global network and hands-on experience in a variety of teams and business lines. It just feels like everyone is rooting for you to do well. From the beginning, there is a clear support structure and encouragement to push yourself. The opportunity to travel for rotations and training blocks are a highlight but beyond that, this is a programme that provides the firmest platform to build our careers on and, through it's blend of lectures, workshops, job experience and international exposure, is the best environment to learn and grow.

  • Darren Govender, Acturial Pricing - Graduate, Cape Town

    I joined the graduates programme in 2017 in the Life and Health Products team focusing on actuarial pricing in Africa. My team was based in Cape Town. What I really loved about Swiss Re‘s graduates programme was the exposure we got so early on in our careers. In my role on the job I had to learn really quickly to get on board and support the team on a wide range of very interesting deals. In our classroom training we were exposed to the immense knowledge that Swiss Re experts had to share. Additionally, we travelled to the offices in Zurich where we could interact with the directors and executives at Swiss Re. Even beyond training blocks the graduates programme allows for rotations into diverse teams in locations anywhere around the world. Now imagine these experiences all packaged into one journey – that is Swiss Re‘s graduates programme.

    I joined Swiss Re as a graduate in Casualty Treaty Costing (Asia), Bangalore team in 2017. The highlight of this programme is the international exposure that it provides in terms of on-the-job and classroom trainings in Zurich and cross-country team projects. The graduates programme gives a holistic view of Swiss Re and the re/insurance industry and provides a platform to build a global network and learn from a range of experts from different backgrounds. The graduates programme has offered me ample opportunities in terms of job rotations in different locations and other projects which is very difficult to find - at least in the first year of the career.
