What will the apprentice be doing?

This is an exciting opportunity to start your career in the dynamic world of insurance with our ‘earn as you learn’ apprenticeship programme.

The Lockton ‘producer’ role is the winning and retaining of business (new business development and client retention). This is a very simple statement, but the success of the producer group is fundamental to the success of Lockton. The producers work across all the Lockton business areas. 

Lockton is a different type of business in our sector, as we focus only on those prospects where we have a cultural match and where we can demonstrably add value. This requires our producers to be knowledgeable and experienced across all areas of insurance, risk financing and industry sector.

What’s in it for you:

  • Knowledge development via a mix of skills workshops, self-guided study and on-the-job training
  • Hands-on experience, mentored by industry specialists
  • Skills-based, industry-recognised qualifications including the Level 4 Sales Executive framework and Certificate Level CII, earning financial incentives as you progress

Role responsibilities:

The role of the apprentice is to work alongside the producers in prospect identification and winning, to meet our new business budget. This will be carried out by:

  • Identifying appropriate corporate client prospects
  • Identifying how best to access those prospects and market Lockton differentiators to them
  • This is both for individual clients and across sectors
  • Execute marketing plans and where possible, engage in the winning of the business

The role of the apprentice in working with producers across their current existing client base:

  • Work alongside the producer and client team, to ensure client experiences and retention are sustained

The longer term outcome for the individual in this role will be a very broad knowledge of the business, the ability to listen to others’ needs and translate that into customer satisfaction and new business success.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

  • Sales Executive Level 4 Apprenticeship Standard
  • Level 2 Functional Skills in English and maths (if required).
