How to Enter

The competition is open to students and graduates from all over the world! And all entry involves is answering a few questions at

Great Global Adventure

Stage One

As someone who just a year ago was wading through graduate job applications, I can promise you that this is the most fun you’ll have applying for a job. There’s a few geographical questions, some soduku – even some translating (hint: just head straight to Google translate…)

For each of the first eight puzzles you solve you’ll get one point. Some require a little more brainpower (and willpower…) to complete than others.

Great Global Adventure

Once you’ve completed eight of the challenges you’ll then be asked to share your ideal international trip over Twitter or Facebook.

Stage Two

Still with me? Excellent!

At the end of stage one, the players with the top 30 scores in each AXA designated region will be invited to participate in the next stage- an online video interview.

Stage Three

The final four will then take part in a final online video conference interview with a panel of judges.
