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 to attend training days especially designed for the programme. Over 16 to 20 weeks, you'll rotate once or twice to a different business area to gain further experience in another area of the company. Along with the rotation, classroom training and several events will give you opportunities 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 training blocks providing you with a combination of general business topics, specialised technical subjects and professional skills sessions.  The classroom-based training is complemented by self-paced online and digital learning modules allowing you to fit your learning around your work.  Depending on your specialisation, you may also be required to study towards an industry recognised designation.

In addition, you will receive a group project assignment.  This is set up to introduce you to cross-functional project work centred around a business-related topic.  You will work closely with a project sponsor and will present your findings to a panel of senior Swiss Re business experts. 


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 your journey with Swiss Re, follow one of the links below:
