Graduate scheme

New Ireland Assurance Company is the first wholly owned life assurance company to transact business in Ireland. We provide life assurance, pensions and investment solutions to individual and corporate customers. We are looking for positive people with a winning mind-set who will innovate and grow with our customers.

The Programme

Each programme stream offers a rotational experience across different areas in the Bank. Each rotation is specifically developed to enable Graduates to develop the critical skills that will accelerate your development and growth.

During your three rotations, you will build strong management, interpersonal and technical skills, as well as getting exposure to business critical projects in a fast paced environment.

You are empowered throughout to seek new experiences and expand your network through cross collaboration. You will have the opportunity to experience different areas of the business, or to contribute to meaningful transformation projects that support our Group strategy.

Your final rotation will see accelerated responsibility in your role, applying your learning to date. You will also cap the experience off by taking part in a Graduate project challenge which is supported with funded prizes.

The Opportunity

You will be working in one of the largest actuarial departments in the industry! The Company has a strong focus on product innovation and your training will take place in one of our many actuarial teams, each offering a variety of different experiences. You will be involved in numerical analysis, gaining a deep understanding of Actuarial Principles and building commercial awareness of the life and pensions industry.

As part of the programme you will gain exposure to colleagues across numerous business areas allowing you to build a substantial network across the Bank. Through our unique Digital Academy, you will also be able to explore opportunities and future career paths, as well as receiving top-class mentoring through the Bank of Ireland Mentorship Programme.

Members of the Graduate Programme have strong visibility in Bank of Ireland with regular touchpoints with Leadership, including the CEO and Executive Committee.

Our Graduate Programme is often a feeder into one of Bank of Ireland’s talent programmes which are designed to accelerate the growth of identified high-performing individuals.

What you will get in return

To support your professional development, you will receive full educational support from the company in pursuing the Actuarial exams. Our Actuarial study package is one of the most comprehensive in the market and includes study leave, support materials and a peer mentoring system. 

In addition, each Graduate will embark on a bespoke two-year Digital Development Plan to uplift digital skills and capabilities to ensure they are equipped for the Future of Work. Our hybrid working model offers colleagues greater flexibility in how and where they work, meaning that the traditional 9 – 5 office base will be less prevalent, with work from home, digital collaboration and hot desking options commonplace.

Our Graduates build an outstanding community in Bank of Ireland, and while we are working in a less face to face environment, Graduates will have their own Digital Hangout, which makes it easy to interact, socialise and share ideas with other Graduates.

What we are looking for

We offer opportunities to students who have achieved, or expect to achieve, an Undergraduate or Master’s Degree from all subject areas, however students or Graduates from the fields of Actuarial Science, Mathematics or similar (e.g. Physics) may be particularly suited to this area.

We are interested in speaking with a diverse range of people from various academic, societal and geographical backgrounds that will inspire and help us grow as a bank.
