BIBA is concerned that many PCWs drive an unhealthy focus on price rather than essential aspects.

BIBA has had a number of enquiries recently from members regarding the recruitment of school leavers. The forthcoming hike in university course fees has led to a general feeling that there is likely to be an increase in the educational quality of school leavers, as plenty of able youngsters will not want to be saddled with an increasingly burdensome student debt.
This has led some members to ask what can be done, both in enticing such students into the insurance broking sector and in helping members with this recruitment.
The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) has launched its Discover Risk campaign, aimed at revealing the opportunities in, and the diversity of, the insurance and risk profession.
For further details of Discover Risk, please click here. The Discover Risk website is available at http://www.discoverrisk.co.uk/ 
A number of BIBA members have already taken advantage of apprenticeships. Apprenticeships are funded programmes of learning which are delivered in the workplace in the UK. Anyone over the age of 16 who does not hold a degree can enrol as an Apprentice, though funding is not normally available for those over 18.
For more details of apprenticeships, please click here.

For those members who have a one-off requirement to recruit a school leaver, we suggest the following steps might be prudent:

  1. Speak to your local school(s) / sixth form college(s) and ascertain who is responsible for careers advice – some schools have a dedicated careers master, others have a ‘head of year’.
  2. Consider whether you want to follow the apprentice route.
  3. Make use of the Discover Risk materials / website – this will be useful where the career officer / head of year has little knowledge of our profession.

We make no representation or warranty for the accuracy of the listings, the ability of employers to offer the job opportunities to candidates or the final terms of any appointment obtained through this site.
