Commercial apprenticeship

Attend a first-class training programme and benefit from our extensive experience in training commercial apprentices. 

Why choose a commercial apprenticeship with Generali?


Make suggestions and demonstrate your creativity. We give you plenty of time to develop your skills and talents and grow into your role. You can compare notes and discuss issues with other apprentices and colleagues whenever you need to.


You can choose to complete your commercial apprenticeship at Generali over three or four years, with or without a vocational baccalaureate. The duration is determined by the type of apprenticeship: a standard apprenticeship, international apprenticeship including a period abroad, or a sports apprenticeship. You can also take part in the six-month exchange between our Adliswil and Nyon sites.

What our apprentices say

"Generali inspired me with confidence right from day one. We were made part of the team directly after starting our apprenticeships and given responsibility at an early stage. Generali helped me develop both professionally and personally."


Matteo Giardiello

"As a host company, Generali is very much committed to its apprentices. There are lots of advantages here, like rotating between departments every six months and getting to attend in-house training courses. Thanks to Generali, I've acquired new knowledge and also learned to be more independent. What I’m learning helps me develop both professionally and personally."


Andreia Afonso Coelho

"The informal atmosphere, sense of togetherness and, above all, trust meant that I really felt at home in the company very quickly. You feel you belong here right from the start."

What happens after your commercial apprenticeship?


We prefer to keep apprentices on as employees wherever possible and provide further professional development. Once you have completed your apprenticeship, you will have several further development options. You could complete a Swiss federal diploma and become an insurance specialist. The diploma allows you to complete the HFV insurance college curriculum in just eighteen months.
