I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Aviva (Norwich, England (UK)) in February 2014.
Thorough, but fair. Given chance to shine rather than being tricked/undermined. Strong competition at assessment centre. Around 600 applicants overall for 5 jobs so quite competitive! Similar process to most grad schemes; submit cv/application, pyschometric tests, phone interview, assessment centre. Tests were easier than some other schemes, although I am comparing them to finance/banking ones. Assessment day was a full day in Norwich (although has been London/York in the past), and had group exercise, presentation, interview, networking.

I applied online – interviewed at Aviva (Norwich, England (UK)).
had 2 interviews:
1 telephone interview lasted 30 minutes, they said it was going to be competency based but in fact it was pretty technical, and ask questions regarding regulation and how policies are prices, how a profit is made and what are the key risks.
2nd was a strength based interview, about 20-25 questions ranging in complexity, it is important to think openly as these are not competency questions, questions include:
- how do you develop an idea?
-how do you turn an idea into a proposal
- how do you convince your friends to attend the restuarant of your choice? Answer Question

The process took 1 day – interviewed at Aviva (Norwich, England (UK)) in November 2008.
Competency based interviews with lots of questions on your competenties like
1. Ability to work with others
2. Going beyond call of duty.
Not much scope in my case as they have a salary band which does not go much beyond what i was earning, infact it was lower. I went for it despite a cut in pay because of its blue chip status.
Negotiate if you can.
