Be Wiser Insurance, one of the biggest and fastest growing employers in the Andover area, has taken on 15 new students to its Surestart undergraduate career scheme and is looking to recruit 20 more in the coming months.
The Surestart Development Programme will see the new employees enjoy a three year package that includes a basic annual salary of £18,000.
At the end of the three years, not only will they be debt free in respect of tuition fees had they gone to university, they will have earned in excess of £54,000. They will also have obtained an Advanced Diploma Certificate in Insurance, which is a professional qualification equivalent to a degree and would typically take up to five years to complete.
Based at Wiser Academy’s purpose designed training facility on Winchester Street, Andover, the fast track scheme will provide them with other professional development throughout, including weekly tutorials and solid insurance experience. They will receive ongoing in-house management and leadership development thereafter.
Be Wiser Insurance chairman Mark Bower-Dyke said: “Be Wiser Insurance is delighted to welcome the new starters that have gained a place in our Surestart Development Programme, bringing the total intake so far to 37. We look forward to welcoming more - the last date for applications for our next intake is 31st October 2013."
“Through comprehensive training, genuine responsibility and personal mentor support, the scheme gives them the chance to gain the competence and confidence to shape a career in the insurance industry while working within a successful broker."
“The scheme isn’t just about getting a qualification – it will give them the required knowledge and capabilities to succeed in the competitive business world while earning a salary. More importantly, they won’t have to deal with debts from university fees and student loans at the end of the three year period.”
