The broker will take on an additional eight graduates next year

Higos Insurance Services is expanding its graduate training scheme after launching its first programme in June this year.

The expanded programme will take on eight graduates next year, up from the five places offered in the first year of the scheme.

Managing director Ian Gosden said: “[The graduate training programme] has been very successful for us and heralded a new approach to our staff development programme.

“We are an expanding business and are keen to attract high calibre staff. We have always employed a mix of people, from those with no previous experience of insurance, to highly qualified and experienced technical experts.”

Those entering onto the graduate programme will be given the opportunity to pursue Chartered Insurance Institute certification.
