Covéa Insurance today welcomed a group of GCSE and A-Level school leavers to an Open Day at their Halifax town centre offices, to promote their 2013 Apprenticeship programme and on-going local recruitment.
As GCSE and A-Level results have now been published, and school leavers are actively considering career options, the company has invited local students to visit their office to help them prepare for the world of work and to give them insight into the varied range of career opportunities the company has to offer. The full day of activities will also consist of CV writing seminars and interview technique sessions, culminating in a full mock interview, to help prepare the students for the job market.
Growth is a key objective for Covéa Insurance and since October 2012 the company has employed over 85 new starters across its two main locations in Halifax and Reading. The company is also currently developing plans for a new Home Insurance Claims team in Halifax, which will create over 50 new roles.
James Reader, Chief Executive of Covéa Insurance commented: “Attracting the next generation of talent is really important to the progression of Covéa Insurance and it’s great to have the opportunity to not only showcase the careers we have to offer, but to also support local students in a very practical way. As a company we have significant focus on making a positive impact in our local communities and our open day will focus on helping the students gain some essential skills as they find their way in the job market.”
