The recruitment process

If you think a career in (re)insurance is for you and you're ready for the challenge, then you can start the process with just one click. When applications are being accepted, the link on this page will take you to our application portal where you’ll be asked to complete our application form. You'll also be asked a few questions to get you started.

You must have an unrestricted right to work in the country in which the role is based without the support of a work visa. You will be numerate, demonstrate strong interpersonal skills and be able to write fluently in business English.

Once we've received your application, we’ll review it and, if your application meets our Graduate Program criteria, you will be invited to complete an online psychometric test. If successful you will be invited to a video interview.

Throughout each stage of the recruitment process, you will be assessed according to set criteria and scoring based on our Graduate Behavioral Competency Framework. These competencies have been designed and aligned  with Aspen’s culture, values and allow us to assess your suitability to our Program and to see if you have what it takes to be successful  at Aspen.

Video Interview

The video interview will last approximately 45 minutes so ensure you find an appropriate place to do this.  This stage is an opportunity for us to meet you digitally face-to-face and to continue to build our relationship. We will ask you a series of competency based questions so you’ll need to think about your experiences in your education, work or social life.

When being interviewed, consider the STAR technique:

S – situation – explain the situation related to your answer

T – task – detail the task at hand to resolve or help said situation, what you planned on doing etc.

A – action – what actions did you complete to resolve or help the situation

R – result – the end result of your actions, was it positive, negative? Did it help to explain the outcome of the result?

Assessment Center

If you're successful at the video interview stage we'll invite you to an Assessment Center at either our London or New York office. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to get to know us better and the day’s agenda will be divided into 4 components:

  • Individual Presentation
  • Group Discussion
  • Written Exercise
  • Business Interview

For each of the separate components of the day, we will be assessing you against our core competencies of:

  • Social Awareness and Emotional Intelligence
  • Persuasiveness
  • Team orientation
  • Tenacity and Resilience
  • Adaptability
  • Entrepreneurial and Commercial Thinking
  • Presenting and Communicating Information
  • Planning and Organising
