Graduate Program Switzerland

Empower the lion in you. Join Generali.

The career start for graduates

The Graduate Program Switzerland (GPS) is an ideal way to get into the variety-filled world of an international insurance company. You will spend your 18 months as a trainee working in different divisions of our company. You will develop yourself and your skills and be stimulated by the experience you gain on your way to being an expert and a manager. The GPS demands a great deal of flexibility combined with the decisiveness required to opt for a particular field of work.


What do we have in store for you?

We demand a lot of our trainees: They need to be nurtured and stretched, specially in those areas for which they have a talent. The aim is that the GPS should lead to an attractive permanent post in the specialised area in which you started your training.

To make sure you get a good overview, you'll go through several placements in different specialised areas, during which you'll gain valuable knowledge. These placements will be in German-speaking and Western Switzerland as well as elsewhere in Europe. You'll be guided throughout the program by an experienced mentor. You'll also complete training modules in order to gain specific skills. At the end of the Graduate Program, you'll join with other trainees in starting a strategic project that you'll work implement and complete together independently of anyone else.

Show us your talents. We look forward to hearing from you.
