Apprentice Employer Of The Year

BHIB don’t simply believe in the here and now. We’re committed to developing employees and business leaders of the future. This is why we place so much emphasis on our unique insurance apprenticeship scheme, run in conjunction with the Brokerbility Academy.

BHIB Managing Director Julie Walker explains: –

“BHIB have employed apprentices since 2013. The programme has evolved and improved over time, based on experience and the changing needs of the business, giving local school leavers a genuine alternative to a university education.

Since 2014 the additional workshop program provided by the Brokerbility Academy has
also played an important role in the development of apprentices and trainees focusing on their personal development enhancing their business awareness, industry knowledge and overall working experience.”

Reinforcing the businesses long term planning, Julie continued: –

“This is a sustained long term investment by BHIB designed to bring talented people into the business. Through raising standards we will help keep our business one of the leading employers of choice in the local area.

We see our apprentices as the leaders of the future equipped with the tools to help shape
modern broking. Keeping our business future ready to compete in the ever evolving
insurance broking marketplace is key to our success.”
