Our trainee programmes

Practical experience at last: join us as a trainee

If you are about to complete your studies or have recently graduated, we offer a variety of trainee programmes.

Maybe you haven't decided on a career path yet, but you know what's important to you: reinsurance, internationality, networking? If you have a degree in (business) mathematics, economics or information technology, we can offer you a wide range of specialised trainee programmes.

Basic requirements and structure of our trainee programmes

If you are graduating within the next year or have graduated within the last year, then you have come to the right place. Our trainee programmes usually last 18 months, divided into 3 to 4-month blocks. You will develop your skills through selected training courses, specialist seminars and independent projects. You will be mentored by experienced colleagues, get to know different business areas, and spend up to three months at one of our international locations. Together we will map out your professional future with us.
