Claims Consortium Group is creating 12 new apprenticeship vacancies at its Somerset offices.
Debbie Mawer, Director of People and Culture, believes that the apprenticeship roles will make a valuable contribution to the growth of the business. She said: “We have more than 300 staff, and several have come through our apprenticeship programme. They are now working at all levels of the business, and our focus on quality training will give our new apprentices a range of excellent career opportunities.
“The vacancies will provide a first step on the ladder in the insurance sector, which currently contributes over £40 billion per year to the UK economy and employs 309,000 people across the country.”
Eight of the apprenticeship vacancies focus on claims handling and business administration, one is in HR, and there are three roles within the company’s IT department which supports the company-wide IT and has been responsible for developing industry-leading software.
Claims Consortium employee Claire Lashbrook recently took on the additional role of Careers Advisor for the Exeter branch of the Chartered Institute of Insurance (CII). She believes apprenticeships are vital in the sector.
She said: “My CII role includes promoting apprenticeship schemes in the profession. It’s far from the dry subject that some may imagine, and with lots of technological change affecting risk and product development it’s an exciting time to be working within insurance. These roles in Taunton are a rare opportunity to get a great foundation in insurance and information technology within a business that is leading the change.”
