Kick-start your career in insurance

Whether you’re already considering a career in insurance or simply looking for new challenges with the chance to gain professional qualifications, you're in the right place.

As an insurance broker, we act on behalf of clients and insurers to make sure the right insurance cover is provided. Our clients come in all shapes and sizes, and no two have the same needs!

We look after everything from homes to holidays to healthcare, with a few private sports car collections and advertising campaigns thrown in for good measure. It’s a fast-paced, people-focused field that can be exciting and immensely rewarding.

How the programme works

You'll be working in one of three high-performing teams based across both our Burgess Hill or Twickenham offices. The programme runs for two years, during which you'll work alongside and be supported by colleagues across the business, as well as begin your journey towards obtaining industry-recognised Chartered Institute of Insurance qualifications.

Our programme will give you the perfect chance to gain a broad range of experience as you: 

  • help to maintain and develop both client and insurer relationships
  • gain an understanding of the insurance market and the world of broking 
  • establish confidence in a professional environment 
  • begin to build a long-lasting professional network
