It’s a promise that for our customers we will put their needs at the heart of everything we do, for our employees lets grow and develop together, for our partners - lets collaborate together to create mutual value and for the planet lets drive positive impact by integrating our sustainability work into how we do business.

Our internships will provide career-building exposure to real jobs and real work and the opportunity to make a real impact. Along the way you’ll get to know how we do business, what drives our people and their success, and what we put first: our customers and the things they love and want to protect.   

Your summer intern programme will give you a taste of what life at Zurich could be like in one of our graduate roles. You’ll also get to see how diversity and inclusion are baked into our business, evolving decision-making, driving innovative solutions and making us quite different from any other organisation. 
Successful completion of your summer internship in 2022 could lead to you being offered a place on one of our graduate programmes starting in 2023.
