In association with Brokerbility we have launched an academy scheme in a bid to attract people of all ages into the insurance profession as part of the independent broking group’s contribution to the government’s insurance growth action plan commitment.
The Brokerbility Academy contains a CII accredited apprenticeship programme that offers an alternative to university. Handpicked students from across the UK will be expected to graduate over the course of 15 to 18 months. The first Brokerbility scholarship will be awarded in the form of a higher level training opportunity.
Brokerbility has teamed up with CII accredited learning provider BPP Professional Apprenticeships who will provide practical training and knowledge required for an apprentice to become a productive and an effective member of a team quickly.
This will include both live and recorded sessions as well as face to face coaching and mentoring. At the end of the course ,each apprentice will be professionally qualified with a minimum achievement of Cert CII.
Group Director David McCallum said: “With the UK experiencing a severe skills shortage, it’s important that Brokerbility and the insurance profession reach out to those talented people who may not have considered a career in insurance or want to advance their career.”
Meanwhile, Amanda Blanc, CII president, added: “This demonstrates a commitment to bringing talented people into our profession in a way that will make them want to stay and become the future leaders. Brokerbility should be applauded for building such a great programme.”
CII Chief Executive Sandy Scott said: “Brokerbility is leading the way in its absolute commitment to developing the insurance profession for all. The Brokerbility Academy with its innovative recruitment capabilities and accredited apprenticeship programme at its core is unique within the insurance industry.”
We are recognised as one of the leading independent insurance brokers in the region, and we are continually looking to recruit individuals who can help us to enhance our reputation and enable us to achieve our long term goals. Whether you are a recent or future school leaver, a graduate, someone looking for a career change or an experienced individual in the industry, we want to hear from you.
