Apprenticeships in the Insurance Industry

Starting your career in the insurance industry through an apprenticeship opens doors to several advantages. Beyond the traditional classroom setting, apprenticeships provide hands-on experience, enabling you to develop a robust skill set crucial for success.

From mastering risk assessment to perfecting client communication, apprentices in the insurance industry gain practical insights that would not be available in other learning environments.

The insurance sector, known for stability, offers apprentices a clear pathway for career progression, with opportunities to specialise in underwriting, claims handling and finance to name a few.

In a competitive job market where adaptability is key, an apprenticeship in insurance with Brit not only provides you with opportunities to gain invaluable skills with industry-specific expertise but also positions you as a sought-after professional in a sector poised for continued growth.

Brit’s Apprenticeship Scheme – During the apprenticeship

The Apprenticeship Scheme runs for 18 months from September.

In your first week, you’ll follow an enhanced induction programme. This helps you create your best first impression – and brings you up to speed with the basics of the insurance market.

After that, you’ll be working as part of a team alongside our talented professionals, gaining valuable hands-on experience in your chosen career path.

As part of your apprenticeship, 20% of your working week will be set aside for learning. This includes working towards a relevant qualification – with a mentor to support you through your studies.

At the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll transition into a role linked to your level of experience.

Early careers – why Brit?

Hear from our current Apprentices about their time so far at Brit.

The apprenticeship scheme at Brit has provided me with the support I need to achieve industry-recognised qualifications whilst completing invaluable on-the-job training. I am learning how to adjust claims from some of the most experienced industry professionals across a variety of specialty classes of business. I would highly recommend the scheme to anyone who is looking to gain a considerable head start in their career, as a part of a company that promotes an encouraging and inclusive culture.

From the start, I loved the idea of an apprenticeship as I have always preferred learning from experiences to books. I first heard about Brits apprenticeship opportunity through BPP University where they have a variety of courses/apprenticeships listed. My apprenticeship involves working on the quarterly corporation tax and VAT returns as well as getting involved in a variety of different projects such as when I worked with AI. During my apprenticeship, I have been most surprised with how trusting my team is and how they have involved me in so many different tasks right from the start. The best part of my position is all the new people I have been introduced to through the meetings with our advisors across London and the Tax events held at the Lloyd's building. After my first year at Brit, I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship.
