Bluefin at the Apprenticeship Awards


The Apprenticeship Awards are organised by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS), and are designed to celebrate the achievements of apprentices and the businesses that employ them.

This year Bluefin Insurance Services, a leading broker, has been voted Large Employer of the Year in the London regional final of the Apprenticeship Awards. Bluefin offers individuals and companies comprehensive advice on insurance, financial advice and planning. Backed by the AXA Group, one of the world's largest financial organisations, Bluefin employs some 2,500 people in over 65 offices throughout the UK.

More than 90 employees have completed, or are in the process of completing, an apprenticeship with Bluefin.  The apprenticeship programme combines practical and technical training which includes study towards qualifications offered by The Chartered Insurance Institute.  Bluefin's apprenticeship scheme is rotational, giving apprentices the opportunity to work in a variety of roles including broking, account executives, customer service, and administration.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "I would like to congratulate all of those who have triumphed at the regional stage of the National Apprenticeship Awards and wish everyone the best of luck for the national finals next month. Creating more Apprenticeships across London is a top priority here at City Hall and through your sterling efforts you have shown just what can be achieved."

This year, over 1, 600 entries were received - an increase of over 25% on last year's awards, with over 200 of those from London.  The national finals will take place on 29 June 2011, when Bluefin will be up against other regional winners in its category of companies with 250 to 4999 employees.
