What our Early Careers cohort have to say

“I went into the programme not knowing much about insurance, but this wasn’t an issue as the training plan gave a great introduction and insight into all sectors of the industry which put me at ease for when I started my role. As well as training on insurance we also had soft skill training which I found beneficial, it helped with my confidence and developing my active listening, communication, and presentation skills.”

Ellie – Assistant Account Handler

“The two best things that have come out of this course I would say are the connections across the business that have been made, and the friendships that have been formed in the group that I have worked with.”

Sean – Assistant Account Handler

“Although I was nervous, the first week was informative teaching me about the basics of insurance and in particular building key relationships with everyone in the group. Meeting all the staff and members of ALEC, meant that I had key networking that would be important for the future.”

Oliver – Assistant Account Handler

“This experience has given me the confidence and knowledge to feel more prepared to start work within my team and begin my career in underwriting. As a graduate, Aston Lark has given me fantastic support in transitioning into the insurance industry and I have confidence that I am on a pathway that offers me excellent opportunities for career and personal development with the company.”
