An apprenticeship in insurance – my journey by Andrew Jackson from Hazelton Mountford

24 January 2024

Since joining Hazelton Mountford as an apprentice in 2022, Andrew Jackson – or AJ – has been busy building his career in insurance and successfully achieving a permanent role within the team.

AJ joined us after attending the Hazelton Mountford hosted Apprenticeship Day in 2022. He started with the growing firm via an apprenticeship in insurance as a trainee account executive and gained a permanent position in 2023. Since joining, AJ’s worked hard to achieve success, explaining:

Over the last 16 months I have learnt about a vast number of industries, the risks they face, and most importantly how we can help to protect the financial security of businesses within these industries.”

So far, I started as an apprentice, learning the basics of the insurance industry – from claims to sales – and have now progressed to an account executive working towards a particular niche in churches, charities and not for profit organisations. Alongside the experience I have gained from working in each department I am furthering my education nearing the completion of my first professional qualification.”

Group Director Jake Mountford confirms: “AJ’s done well since joining Hazelton Mountford, beginning with an apprenticeship in insurance and now as an employee. We’re delighted to be able to support him, with continual learning and a clear path forward in his insurance career.  It gives us immense satisfaction when our apprenticeship programme produces such great employees.”
