Meet our graduates

On-the-job training

This 18-month training programme starts around the beginning of September each year and finishes at the end of February. You'll have your home base at one of our regional offices. Your personal mentor will support your integration into the new work environment and will provide additional support throughout the programme. You'll also get the change to attend training days especially designed for the programme. Over 16 to 20 weeks, you can rotate to a different business area, where you'll gain further experience in another area of the company. Along with the rotation, classroom training and several events will give you the chance to meet and network with other graduates and employees from different Swiss Re units.

Off-the-job training

Classroom-based training mainly focuses on technical skills as our business is highly specialised. It consists of three general training blocks providing you with a combination of general business learning and basic technical modules. We also offer specialist training in the reinsurance context.

In addition you'll receive two assignments giving you the opportunity to apply what you've learned to the business context. This also gives us the opportunity to provide you with feedback on your work.

Within the technical paper assignment, you'll be asked to leverage what you've learned in the classroom. The paper will be sponsored and reviewed by your line manager. The project assignment is set-up to introduce you to cross-functional project work around a business-related topic. A panel of senior Swiss Re business experts will present the findings of the project group to you.


Every year a group of bright and highly skilled people like you joins us to discover the world from Swiss Re's perspective. We turn risk into opportunity and this could be yours! To start on your journey with Swiss Re, click on the button below:
