'You're hired!' Wesleyan tells new apprentices

Financial mutual Wesleyan has welcomed the latest group of apprentices to its Birmingham head office.

Orlagh Callaghan, James Jones-Cross, Missy Madden and Jazz Randhawa join Wesleyan on an 18 month apprenticeship scheme, progressing towards an NVQ Level 2, with support from Birmingham Metropolitan College.

Vicki Wentworth, Chief Customer and Strategy Officer at Wesleyan, said: "Over the past seven years we have welcomed almost 60 apprentices onto our award winning scheme, working in departments across the business, including General Insurance, Sales Support and the Support Relationship Centre.

"Becoming an apprentice provides an alternative route for those wanting to enter the financial services sector. It's also an opportunity for us to nurture our own talent, and nearly all of those that have joined us since 2010 are still with us and building successful careers around the Group. I look forward to seeing this latest group develop."

Jazz Randhawa, who will be working in the Private Clients team in the General Insurance department, turned down a university place to take the role at Wesleyan.

He said: "I received an offer from the University of Birmingham's Business School. But a month-long placement in Wesleyan's Advice Assurance Team last summer was a great learning experience and made me realise university might not be the only option available to me.

"With it getting harder to enter graduate schemes each year, I didn't want to go to university for three years and risk not getting on one when I had the option of joining a similar scheme at Wesleyan now."

Wesleyan provides specialist financial advice and solutions to doctors, dentists, lawyers and teachers.
