We celebrate exam success by launching Professional Trainee Scheme

Bollington Insurance Brokers has announced the launch of its new Graduate and School Leaver Training Scheme aimed at ambitious individuals interested in embarking an insurance career.

This follows the success of three long standing employees who have recently achieved the ACII accreditation through the Bollington Adademy.

In recognition of their achievement Kelly Nadin, Simon Ryan and Joanna Taylor were presented with awards ar the Bollington Annual Communications Day by former England and British Lions Rugby player Dean Richards (see photo).

The Bollington Academy was launched a few years ago as a training and development framework to cover technical insurance and management development ensuring that internal talent could match the requirements of the fast growing business.

Having successfully trained over 100 employees through the CII programme over the last three years, Bollington has expanded their current Bollington Academy to offer a full Training Scheme offering technical insurance training and hands on experience within the business.

Bollington Chairman, Paul Moors commented 'Both Bob Gratton, our Underwriting Director, and myself benefited from the former Sun Alliance Professional Trainee scheme when we commenced our careers. We now want to attract young people from school and from university into the industry through our "Grow your Own" initiative which we have implemented. The best of our young people go on to complete their ACII and become the new generation of managers and experts in our business'.

The Training scheme will be promoted at schools, colleges and universities.
