Davies pioneers Flexi-Job Apprenticeships for insurance and highly regulated markets

16th February 2023

Davies, the leading specialist professional services and technology business, serving insurance and highly regulated markets, has officially been certified as an agency with the Department of Education to provide Flexi-Job Apprenticeships, pioneering a new approach to apprenticeship training.

As a registered agency, Davies is now one of just 30 certified to provide Flexi-Job Apprenticeships which allow learners to move from company to company while continuing their respective programmes.

Flexi-Job Apprentices will have the opportunity to conduct short-term placements across various sectors and businesses, gaining valuable experience and skills in their chosen field while benefiting from a wide range of learning opportunities.

It is also hoped the scheme will attract and benefit talent who haven’t been actively looking for a career in insurance. It’s an additional avenue to recruit and retain top talent in the sector and will enable learners to compare insurance roles with jobs in other highly regulated industries, helping to meet the industry’s increasing demand for top talent and highly skilled professionals.

Davies will be responsible for arranging placements with host employers and managing the ongoing relationship once an apprentice has been accepted onto one of its Flexi-Job Apprenticeship programmes.

Carolyn Blunt, Growth and Client Success Director at Davies said: “We are proud to be a part of this innovative approach to apprenticeships. By providing our apprentices with the flexibility to move around different companies and gain valuable experience in a variety of environments, we are giving them the best possible chance to develop their skills and build successful careers. We hope that by opening up this new apprenticeship route, we can help make a real difference in the insurance sector.”

This announcement is just one of the many steps Davies is taking to further strengthen its apprenticeship programmes and provide the best training for the insurance and highly regulated markets. With initiatives such as the Apprenticeship Taskforce and Insurance Skills Bootcamp, Davies has established itself as a leader in insurance apprenticeships and has made a significant commitment to developing the talent pipeline in the sector.
