The BGL Group, headquartered in Bakewell Road, Orton Southgate, hopes to take on five apprentices for its Pathway Apprenticeship Programme.

In just two years the programme has created more than 200 apprenticeships for the digital distributor of insurance and household financial services through brands including comparethemarket.com, Budget Insurance, Dial Direct and Beagle Street.

Applicants can be school or college leavers, those returning to work after a career break or seeking a career change.

Rachael Gillett, Chief People Officer, said: “Our apprentices have a significant impact as a new source of talent, bringing different insights, diverse views and experience with them.”

The vacancies go live on February 7. Visit www.bglgroup.co.uk/careers

The Pathway Programme allows apprentices to spend six months working within four departments, which could include customer services, risk, finance, marketing or HR.

Meanwhile, they will study for either an Insurance Practitioner or Business Administration Level 3 apprenticeship, gaining a nationally recognised qualification.

Emily White, an existing Pathway apprentice and a finalist in the 2019 Peterborough Apprenticeship Awards, said: “When I left school, I knew I wanted to go into business but I didn’t know which area I wanted to go into.

“This role gives me the chance to rotate across different areas before deciding where I want to focus my future career.”

Applicants for the Pathway Programme should have two A-Levels at grade C or above, or an equivalent Level 3 qualification. They should also have English and Maths GCSE at grade C or above, or equivalent.

The new vacancies will go live from February 7. To apply visit www.bglgroup.co.uk/careers
