A further six apprentices are being taken on by the UK division of one of the world’s largest independent advisory organisations throughout 2016, it has today been confirmed.
deVere United Kingdom, part of deVere Group, is recruiting the additional apprentices throughout this year to ensure a solid, varied stream of talent into the organisation as demand for its specialist financial service continues to increase.
Managing Director of deVere United Kingdom, Mike Coady comments: “The optimum way to secure our continued success in the future and to nurture the innovation generated from today’s world, is to extract potential from a wide, diverse talent pool.
“This is where deVere’s apprenticeship programme comes in.”
The apprenticeship programme combines employment and training, allowing apprentices to develop the required technical knowledge, learn key employment skills and show their competence in the working world.
Apprentices will also study for professional industry qualifications as part of the programme.
Mr Coady adds: “Apprenticeships are a central component of our initiative to attract new talent, and to inspire individuals who may not have previously considered a career in this industry.
“The programme provides an invaluable entry point into the financial services sector, and allows the apprentices to gain essential experience and knowledge to be able to enjoy an immensely rewarding career.”
Mr Coady goes on to say: “Throughout the programme, apprentices will develop their skillset, tailored to this industry, and discover what it’s like to work in the exhilarating – and demanding – environment of the international financial services sector.”
Mike Coady confirms that deVere United Kingdom will be taking on at least another six apprentices in 2016 due to demand for its independent financial advice continuing to skyrocket.
“With demand to factors such as the landmark pension reforms; increased financial education in workplaces; the fact that individuals are now more financially savvy; and there being an increasing number of British expats returning to the UK, demand is strong and this trend looks set to continue. As such, we will be signing up more apprentices than ever this year.
“As well as recruiting and developing talent, the apprenticeship programme will enhance the importance, and indeed relevance, of gaining professional qualifications.
“The experience gained from working within the industry whilst studying provides a framework for learning, allowing apprentices to direct their ambition and motivation in order to succeed.
“Apprentices will receive a competitive salary, whilst benefitting from the unrivalled support of fully-qualified mentors, managers and consultants, to encourage their unique abilities and talents whilst developing their specific job skills.”
Mr Coady concludes: “We are looking forward to offering the apprentices the opportunity to turn their existing potential into a long-lasting, fulfilling career.”
In 2015, deVere United Kingdom took on five apprentices.
