Allianz launches search for the next generation of broker talent

Posted: 14 January 2021

Developed with specialist apprenticeship training provider, Davies Learning Solutions, the programme provides candidates with the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to excel in their role. It also supports them to achieve insurance qualifications from the Chartered Insurance Institute.

Building on Allianz’s existing Broker Training programme which provides webinars, LinkedIn Learning access and technical broker training programmes to brokers, the new apprentice scheme will provide candidates with monthly one-to-one sessions, tutor-led virtual guidance workshops and additional learning opportunities.

The apprenticeship comes in three levels, each with differing outcomes and objectives.

  • Insurance Practitioner – Entry level programme for those looking to develop their career in the insurance industry.
  • Insurance Professional – A development pathway which allows candidates to specialise in a particular area of the insurance industry with supporting qualifications.
  • Senior Insurance Professional – Develops skills needed to succeed at a senior level in the insurance industry.

Allianz will fund the cost of the apprenticeship training, and CII certification training and exams costs for the brokers chosen to participate

Sarah Mallaby, director of broker markets, Allianz Insurance, said:
Investing in people and talent across the industry is something that we’re hugely passionate about, so we are really excited to be launching the new Allianz Broker Apprenticeship Programme.

“We believe that this new programme will not only benefit the careers of individual brokers, but also the insurance sector as a whole. We want to support our broker partners to build the next generation of industry leaders and experts. I believe that together we can drive forward professionalism and expertise, whilst attracting new talent to the profession.”
