Applications are open for Allianz's Broker
Apprenticeship programme

Posted: 6 February 2023

Following a highly successful launch in 2021 the Allianz Broker Apprenticeship programme is back for a second year and is welcoming applications from talented brokers across the country

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 the existing Allianz Partners Academy which provides webinars, LinkedIn Learning access and technical broker training programmes to brokers, the apprentice scheme provides 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.

Nick Hobbs, chief distribution and regions officer commented:

“Colleagues past, present and future know that personal and professional development is incredibly important to Allianz and we see this investment as one that not only benefits individual brokers but the industry as a whole. We talk a lot about being in a partnership with our brokers and this is such an positive example of how we can strengthen those bonds. Studying and working at the same time is tough but the rewards are worth the effort – so whether you (or members of your team) are new to the industry or are looking to take a   career to the next level this could be the ideal opportunity.”
