AIG Europe Limited is joining forces with the National Apprenticeship Service to announce its new Apprenticeship programme. AIG will be creating job opportunities for up to 25 apprentices in 2013 based in the company’s Claims centres in Croydon and Chesterfield.
Nicolas Aubert UK Managing Director for AIG said, “There is a very real need within our industry to attract young people with flair and capacity for hard work to deliver excellent results. I believe apprenticeships is a great way for us, as one of the world’s largest insurance companies, to invest in the future by offering exciting opportunities that young people will value. We are very pleased to be joining the programme.
“For AIG it means that we can recruit and train talent to help create a pipeline of enthusiastic, skilled individuals who we believe will enjoy a worthwhile career in the insurance industry and at AIG specifically.
“The apprentices can expect both on the job training from our own Claims professionals as well as external skills training to help them achieve recognised qualifications.”
AIG has just appointed a training partner, subject to final contract, who will provide training for the Delivering Financial Service: General Insurance & Marketing Apprentice Pathways.
Vic Grimes, Divisional Apprenticeship Director, National Apprenticeship Service – London and South East said, “It is good news that AIG is opening up recruitment to apprentices. It is another indication of the value that apprentices bring to an organisation with their commitment and loyalty but also great news for young people who will get a foothold into this sector. Employers such as AIG are demonstrating very clearly that they want a skilled, motivated and more diverse and representative workforce.”
