Applications for the 2021 Return to Work programme are now closed.

We’ve built our business on welcoming and supporting the very best talent to drive us - and our industry - forward.

Following the success of last year’s programme we are once again providing valuable, exciting and flexible opportunities across our organisation for anyone looking to return to work in the investment sector after an extended career break.

The Aviva Investors Return to Work programme is a tailored six month initiative for finance professionals returning to work after an extended career break of 18 months or more (with the potential to lead to more permanent opportunities).

A tailored initiative

The programme offers a paid placement of six months with the potential to go on to work with us in a more permanent role. But it offers so much more:

Flexible Working

We understand and fully appreciate the demands that life outside work can place on all of us. So we will explore potential arrangements from flexible hours to working from home options.

Peer To Peer Support

Aviva Investors’ programme is run as a group intake, so all our returners start the programme together. Plus, there will be supportive group forums throughout the returnship placement.

Rounded Training

We want to make sure Returners feel completely happy in their role, so we offer expert back-to-work transition coaching, plus the opportunity to refresh every discipline they need, from technical skills to personal effectiveness.
