Wright Insurance Brokers is a keen supporter of education and of initiatives aimed at attracting new talent into the financial services sector, and in particular, the insurance segment. With this in mind the company is supporting an ‘earn-as-you-learn’ programme which will lead to a BA (Hons) degree in Insurance Practice after three years for successful apprentices.
Take a look at this article by Celine Naughton and published in the Independent.ie which gives a deeper insight into this initiative. https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/education/earnasyoulearn-offers-a-clear-route-to-career-success-36601715.html
Wright Insurance Brokers has focused on fostering a culture that supports the best interests of clients whilst also giving team members the opportunity to grow and develop their career path.
Training and development is a key pillar underpinning the approach. Team members are actively encouraged to undertake further education, beyond the minimum regulatory requirements for Continuous Professional Development (CPD), in pursuit of career development. The company supports this, both financially by paying fees and, with study leave for exam preparation and attendance. When new roles become available the company has a track record of prioritising internal recruitment ensuring that current employees are given the opportunity to progress before recruiting externally. At present, over a third of the team is participating in a programme of further education, and eleven team members have been promoted internally in the past year. The company was proud to selected as Best Place to Work in the Carlow Chamber Business Awards 2017.
