Allianz Insurance has launched a new apprenticeship programme, which will give students with A-level qualifications the opportunity to work within its Retail division.
The scheme has been specifically created for talented young people who are academically capable, but might not wish to attend university, especially in light of the recent fee increases.
Those who win a place on the three-year scheme will be given the chance to gain technical skills across many areas, including motor, home, lifestyle and animal health as well as pricing development, fraud and business standards.
The new programme will combine hands-on working experience with a professional study programme, as all of the apprentices will also be working towards a Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) qualification.
Tom Moss, Retail technical director, said: “This is a great opportunity for bright and talented individuals to gain key technical skills and qualifications, which will allow them to gain a head start in their career development without going to university.”
He adds: “We recognise that the capabilities of our people are essential to a successful business. This new apprenticeship scheme demonstrates our commitment to training and developing staff, which we are confident will ensure that we meet the technical and leadership requirements of the future.”
