The jobs look good but competitive.
Speaking from a life insurance IMAP graduate, advice not to go. My peers who are stuck in the same company are still making $4k+ in 4 years.

megan2019 Indeed, nowadays there are a lot of scammers and frauds linked with the insurance. You must be careful and very attentive to the terms you are offered. More than all, you can make inquiries about how many crimes related to financial fraud are committed daily at the moment. Frankly speaking, there are many complaints about banks, which are often complicit in thefts and fraud. Therefore it is, on the contrary, good that they are vigilant and play it safe. When there are such companies like https://www.bustathief.com/phone-scam-telephone-fraud/ that help to resolve human problems associated with loss and damage as a result of fraud. So, be glad that they try to prevent fraud right away it is better than to find the ways how to return stolen.

COVID-19 As an IMAPer, you will have a mentor, buddy (for each rotation), coach (supervisor) and will need to do a performance review every rotation. Because IMAPers are fresh grads, it is hard to justify and ask for a higher pay. Plus it's actually competitive (first class honours go to Prudential IMAP).
The programme was disappointing as there were a lot of random projects that took up a lot of our time and we don't really learn much. There is immense cognitive dissonance that comes from being told I'm supposed to be appreciative of my amazing opportunities as an MA, while having to face a reality that the job I'm assigned to is one of the most uninspiring things I could do with my life.
At the end of the program, I was told that my choices (which were where I rotated to), will never have headcount due to automation, efficiency, and job freeze (this was years before covid). To HR, I am just a pawn, a chess piece. They told me I'm a plaster, to go wherever the organisation needs.
Then one day I applied to another company and was offered an amazing opportunity.

This is neither your MA program in banks nor the Grad programs in civil service.

I was part of the program in one of the (then) big3 brokers.

Pros:
Some overseas exposure when sent to London w your batchmates, awesome fun with bunch of same age folks roaming Central London/UK.

Cons:
Salary was pegged at 3.2k (sucked balls, had to drive grab to make up for the income gap)
No performance bonus
Rotation meant you don't have a home dept/boss to fight for your promotion/increment during appraisal
Colleagues are not the smartest nor the brightest (not good for professional growth if you aren't young, no one to look up to in office)
Post grad certification (many peers fail miserably - xia suay - but it was quite easy for me, aced it and they will give you some paper with your name on it. Mehhhh)
Full of (incapable) ang mohs who talk more than they pang sai
Bond of $xxxxx

Only 2-3 people I know from the program stayed on in the industry.

The rest left on the dot when their bonds are up or be like me break the bond to jump out of the program, company and industry all together.

That being said with covid infecting this economy, I guess the industry will get a bumper intake of quality people from imap.

Cheers
Come back from London then break bond? Aon?
