Our People

In June 2013, we successfully launched our first Graduate Scheme in which five graduates joined our Commercial Insurance department undertaking a three week intensive training programme with an external tutor, before joining their respective teams to gain valuable practical experience on-the-job. Training programmes were designed for each individual and they have been supported throughout their studies towards attainment of the Certificate in Insurance. All of the graduates achieved their Certificate in Insurance within 6 months of joining Higos with one graduate gaining the qualification in under 3 months. We provide our employees with all study materials, run training and study sessions on site and fund all examinations and qualifications.

Following completion of the Certificate in Insurance, all the graduates are required to work towards the Diploma in Insurance and even supported to ACII level (which is equivalent to an undergraduate degree).

"If you are competitive, hard working and up for a challenge I would definitely recommend applying for the scheme”
