Graduate Scheme

What training will I get?

Throughout your graduate programme you will be encouraged to take personal ownership of your learning. As you progress, your training and development will focus on different areas to support your career path. These include: technical insurance, communication, regulation, networking and personal brand.

In addition, you will receive support with your professional studies through the CII, with the added incentive of study-related awards as you successfully complete modules.

You will receive on-the-job training through each business rotation and there are lunchtime learning sessions on various business topics, which all staff are encouraged to attend.

What opportunities will there be to network?

You will be working in the Lloyd’s and Company market environment and various groups within the London (re)insurance market, which will help you to establish a valuable network of key contacts.

How does the mentoring system work?

A mentor will be there to support you for the duration of the graduate scheme. Your mentor, who acts as another source of advice and support within TMK, will be a former member of the TMK graduate programme. They will use their experience to offer guidance and help participants develop their business and commercial awareness.

How will you monitor progress?

We believe it is essential that you are able to keep track of the progress you are making. At the end of each rotation, you will complete placement objectives and discuss these with your graduate manager, along with any additional feedback and development points.

What graduate programmes does TMK offer?
Following the success of our award winning underwriting graduate programme, we have developed further programmes in Actuarial and Analytics as well as Human Resources. 

How do I apply to the graduate programmes?
The opening of our graduate programmes will be advertised on the careers section of our website, our recruitment portal and social media. We will include scheme details and how to apply.

How many placements do you offer each year?

The number of opportunities varies, depending on the needs of our business and the rotation schedule. Typically, all graduates will complete four underwriting rotations in their first year (one in each underwriting department), with a selection of shorter non-underwriting rotations in-between. The second half of the programme will be a maximum of three underwriting rotations across varying divisions. The final three rotations will be claims, wordings and an overseas placement.

How do I learn about different parts of the business?

You will spend time in each relevant department so you can learn about that specialist area. This gives you, and us, time to assess and consider your strengths, as well as establishing which part of the business you are most suited to.

How will I be rewarded?

Your salary progression is directly linked to your success in passing the various modules of your professional qualification.

What happens when I finish the graduate scheme?

When you have completed the scheme we will work with you to secure a permanent placement. We will take into account your successes throughout the scheme and feedback from the heads of department. Permanent placements are dependent on business requirements.

What are the rewards at Tokio Marine Kiln?
