About us

Having again won the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award in 2021, we are justifiably proud to be one of only 39 companies across the globe receive this prestigious accolade and enhance our status as a premier employer. As a leading provider of general insurance and financial services, with a UK network of around 300 local agencies and seven regional offices, we really can lay claim to being a great place to work and a genuine destination of choice for ambitious graduates.

The role

With opportunities nationwide, this is a great chance for you to get to know first-hand how our agency/branch network operates and the critical role our regional teams play in driving the business forward. It is a tailored 3 year programme, in a commercially focused environment, with your own personal mentor, offering the exciting prospect of becoming involved in day to day operations right from the start. Initially learning everything there is to know about our products, you will then put that knowledge to good use, shadowing our regional sales teams, working on sales campaigns, completing branch placements and seeing how the business grows. This is designed to give you a real breadth and depth of experience, ensuring you are fully equipped to take your career in the direction you choose, whether that’s working in a regional sales role or operational support capacity…or maybe even running your own agency/business one day.

However, of equal importance, will be a willingness to take on each opportunity that comes your way and consistently challenge yourself to be the best you can be.
