About the Chartered Accountancy Graduate Scheme
Accountants at Aviva contribute right across the business, supporting different departments to achieve their goals, influencing key decisions, crafting policy and improving the way we work.
The Aviva Chartered Accountancy Graduate Scheme provides ambitious graduates with a stimulating, challenging and supportive environment in which to gain their ICAEW qualification through the Level 7 Accounting Professional Apprenticeship, which is equivalent to a Masters degree. The programme will give you the opportunity to become a well-rounded Accountant and help you launch a high achieving career, grounded in both an insurance specific and more general understanding of accountancy, finance and commercial business.

What you will do:
+ Participate in a three-year scheme
+ Complete three, one-year placements
+ Study for the ICAEW qualification
+ Qualify as a Chartered Accountant
You will complete your one-year placements in different Finance teams, based in Norwich or York. You can be assured that the placements will be dynamic, challenging and enjoyable, and provide you unrivalled breadth of experience to lay the foundations of your career. You will be a valued member of the finance team from day one and take ownership of the work you undertake, with clear objectives and responsibilities.
Alongside these placements you'll study to become a Chartered Accountant through ICAEW under a Level 7 Accounting Professional Apprenticeship. Modules cover everything from Financial Reporting to Auditing, Law to Taxation - and each end with an exam. Don't worry though, you'll be able to concentrate fully on them, as you will be taught by an external education company away from the office. By the time you're done, you'll have a broad and detailed grounding in the world of commercial accounting as well as practical experience that will stand you in good stead throughout your career.
When you have finished your three years on the scheme, you will be a qualified Chartered Accountant and we will work with you to secure your ideal post-graduate role within Aviva and continue to support you in achieving your career dreams.
