Interview Advice:

Read up on the company and the insurance sector as a whole beforehand, think about why you want to work for Allianz and what motivates you as an individual, and have some good examples to hand of times where you've overcome an obstacle or worked effectively within a team. Try to enjoy it and just be yourself. My interview honestly felt more like a chat and that the company were just keen to get to know me - it went by in a flash!

Interview Advice:

Be honest.

SME Account Underwriter, Underwriting at Allianz Insurance
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Consider if you definitely want to be an underwriter first or whether you want to experience the wider business. The underwriting scheme is great if you want to be technical from day one but gives less exposure to the wider business and network. The rotational scheme gives you a better exposure to business leaders but makes you a jack of all trades.

Interview Advice:

Understand your CV in detail and be able to talk about all aspects of it as well as any gaps. Research about our competitors, our key partners and brokers and know about current projects or 'Allianz News.'

Personal Lines Technical Graduate, Personal Lines, Technical at Allianz Insurance
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Best advice I could give is to be yourself and make sure that the job you're applying for is something you are genuinely interested in and in an area you would like to make a difference.

As a graduate you will be working on a lot of projects and your input is key in order to make the project as successful as possible- it may be the case that you're required to work over your contracted hours but this is most probably something you would be doing in any job/role you start.

Claims Graduate, Claims at Allianz Insurance
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Get some experience in an insurance related role or have something to illustrate your knowledge of the industry. Also be prepared to push for what you want as without being proactive about getting opportunities within the scheme you will not get as much from it.

Interview Advice:

Get the pronunciation of 'Al-e-anz' correct as they will not hire you otherwise. Prepare general topics for competency questions and then tailor them to the question. This will ensure you don't have anything to say under pressure. They look out for people who can stand up for themselves under pressure and can put across their own ideas (in the role plays). Also brush up on general arithmetic for the maths test.

Management Trainee, Mixed at Allianz Insurance

Application Advice:

100% apply. The time and money invested into you is really encouraging and Allianz really want you to progress.

Interview Advice:

You can't prepare enough. Once you reach the assessment day it's a long and draining experience but if you are aware of what's going on in the industry, at Allianz and there values/behaviours then nothing should come as a surprise. Lastly just be yourself, don't try to impress anyone and be someone you're not.

IT Graduate, IT at Allianz Insurance
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Really try and put across why you are applying for the role that you are applying for. Why did it catch your eye? What specifically about it was appealing to you and why? Why do you think that it is the right role for you? Further to this, what attracted you to the company? Do you identify with the company values etc.? Trying to get passion across in an application is difficult but have a real think before putting your pen to paper.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself and ask questions. Try and draw from examples from lots of different areas of your life in competency interviews, not just school or university.

Application Advice:

Know your stuff. Do your research about the industry as well as the company. Make sure you know what you're talking about and don't be afraid to put your hand up and admit when you don't know something.

Interview Advice:

Be honest about yourself and your goals. Don't say what you think the interviewer wants to hear, say what you think. A diverse range of people who think in different and interesting ways is far better than a collection of people who can only think the same way.

Application Advice:

Apply early but take your time. The application process will close once the organisation has all the people they want so don't miss out. There is no need to rush to submit an application you're not happy with, make sure it's your best work before sending because it is your first impression.

Interview Advice:

Relax. You'll perform your best if you are relaxed and confident. The best way to be relaxed is if you prepare. Have a plan and do your research on the company, it's values etc. If you leave the day happy with your performance then you've done your part.

Application Advice:

a) Use a mixture of examples from social settings and school/uni/work and try and use examples that will make you interesting and memorable.
b) Don't be afraid to sell yourself (but not too much that you sound arrogant).
c) Include extra-curricular activities and hobbies on your CV that show that you are a well-rounded individual.
d) Do research on Allianz and the role. Specifically, show an interest in studying for one of the professional qualifications.
e) Most importantly, don't use generic answers that you've copied and pasted from a different application - it is so obvious to recruiters!

Interview Advice:

a) Be yourself - the interviewer will want to make sure that you will fit in with the culture of the company (this is important for you too).
b) Make sure you know the two ways in which insurance companies make money, and what our biggest cost is.

Application Advice:

A calm and considered approach is the best approach you can take throughout the interview process and do your research into the company well in advance.

Interview Advice:

A candidate will go a long way if they prove to be knowledgeable of the insurance sector (just reading the key issues to date and big headlines), with a lot of background research into Allianz:
-Size
-Products it sells
-Global presence
-Work carried out outside of insurance

They next key step is being able to articulate all that knowledge and research when asked about it.

Application Advice:

In terms of application, I personally think it is great if you bring in some university experience to the problem based scenarios; however, I would say Allianz as a business appreciates more of a mixed application so try to bring through examples from your previous work experience or some volunteering you have completed.

Interview Advice:

My assessment centre comprised of a business problem/case study and an interview.
During the interview some of the questions from the initial application form are discussed so I would suggest that all applicants save their initial application form and have a bit of a read before they enter the assessment centre.
There is no correct/incorrect answer to the case study. It is all about how you articulate and present your arguments. Be prepared to be questioned on your decision!

If you are given a deadline stick to it especially when it comes to time keeping, don't overstep it and don't under reach it. Again find solutions to problems and be innovative.
