AXA story

The placements offered me an insight into a wide variety of career paths


“Making the jump from university to a graduate job was never going to be easy but I found it even more daunting as at the time, I wasn’t 100% sure exactly what I wanted to do with my management degree. The AXA Future Leaders programme stood out to me because of the sheer variety of placements. And it’s definitely lived up to its promise!

The rotating placements have given me the opportunity to work in areas that I wouldn’t have considered before. I’ve enjoyed them so much that I’m now thinking about following some of these paths beyond the scheme. Throughout it all, the graduate resourcing team work closely with you to determine your areas of interest and help you find the perfect placement.

One placement can be completely different to the next, so you’ve really got to be flexible and hungry to learn. I go into each new one ready to absorb as much information as possible and really get the most out of my eight months. Joining the AXA Future Leaders programme was hands down the best decision I could have made. Not only is it a fantastic opportunity to have so early in my career but most importantly, it’s also a really fun place to work!”
