What you will be doing

The Direct Line Group Graduate Programme is our investment in our future leaders. It’s our way of securing the next generation of talent, producing new experts with the ability to handle the challenges of this changing world. And this is your opportunity to be a part of it.

In the age of technology, life as we know it is constantly changing. With those changes come new issues that affect individuals, businesses and communities nationwide. As one of Britain’s leading insurers, we have a responsibility to keep adapting, so we’re always ready to meet our customers’ needs. It’s why we’re committed to protecting the future of our business. And it’s why we want to invest in you.

Over the duration of the three year programme you will rotate across four different placements in different areas of the business, gaining a breadth of exposure working alongside brilliant people while building your skills and knowledge of our industry. You’ll see what we do. You’ll learn how we do it. And you’ll share your ideas, experiences and energy to help us be even better.

Through a mix of professional development, cohort learning, soft skills and ‘on the job’ training, you’ll gain a core set of business skills that will give you the best career grounding you could hope for. As for the areas you could join, they range from finance to HR, risk to claims, digital and technology to sales, and marketing to customer service.

In return, there are great benefits, friendly colleagues and approachable mentors. You’ll have a voice from day one. So as long as you want to take your career and this business somewhere amazing, you’re sure to fit right in.

What you will have

We look for more than just a good honours degree. You’ll need to show us that you possess the following traits, as that will show us you have the potential to become a future leader here:

  • You will have real motivation and the ability to work and create in an ever-changing environment
  • You will be curious, flexible, collaborative and commerically aware
  • You will bring all of yourself to work every day
  • You will be passionate about what you do
  • You will be passionate about how you look after our customers.
Onwards to our company and culture…

We are Direct Line Group

The UK's largest insurer and home to some of the nation's best-known brands. 

Our Culture - What we do

We're one of the leading motor, home and small business insurers in the UK. We’re home to some of the nation’s best-known brands, including Direct Line, Churchill, Privilege, Green Flag and NIG.

But we’re about far more than just household names. We want to make insurance much easier for customers. We want to be known for treating them better than anyone else, both now and in the future. We want to work in a way that’s more creative and more effective than other companies. That means continually evolving our understanding of what our customers want and need.

So, we've started on a journey. It’s our chance to do something that very few organisations ever have: to take a completely fresh look at the way we do business, how we work together and how we help our customers. We’re planning for our future, today. And as you’ll see - it’s a future with a great deal of potential.
