Henderson Insurance Brokers Ltd (HIBL) has appointed two new local apprentices to its Hessle office, using a customised apprenticeship scheme developed in conjunction with a local training provider.
Jordan Key and Haleema Parker have joined the specialist business broker from school and college as part of the continued expansion of the broker’s East Yorkshire operation.
Sourced through the Learning Skills Partnership, Mr Key will train as a broker and Ms Parker as a claims handler, while both study for their apprenticeship in business administration Level 2.
Sonya Hunt, office manager at the Hessle office, said:
“This is about the continued expansion of the Hessle business and will further underpin the top quality service we offer our customers. We are fortunate to have this tailored apprenticeship training programme to help us find suitable candidates – both Jordan and Haleema are settling in well with the team here.”
Mr Key, 17, who is from Brough and did GCSEs at South Hunsley School, said:
“This is a good opportunity to joining a growing company; insurance is something that’s always going to be needed.”
Ms Parker, 18, is from Anlaby, has three A-levels from Wyke Sixth Form College, in law, science and psychology, and in her spare time is a member of the cheerleading team Imperial Storm Cheerleaders.
Simon Alsop, director at the Learning Skills Partnership, said:
“We source, recruit and train apprentices for Henderson Insurance Brokers through a coordinated employer-led programme and with all recruitment and training processes defined, agreed and brand aligned throughout the Henderson Insurance Brokers business. The two new Hessle appointments join an existing 12 apprentices sourced and recruited onto the programme across the UK since its introduction to the business in early 2012.”
HIBL, which is the UK’s fifth largest independent insurance broker, has strong expertise in risk management, construction, bonds and surety services along with credit insurance and manufacturing.
