This September, we welcomed 27 graduates and 25 apprentices to our annual intake.
The graduates have joined a range of practice areas, including Actuarial, Insurance, Investment, and Longevity Consulting, taking up positions across all of our eight UK offices.
“Working with the new recruits has been fantastic," said Associate Debbie Matravers, who co-ordinated the induction training attended by the graduates on joining the firm.
"The induction days in our Leeds office provided an excellent opportunity for them all to get to know each other at the start of their careers in the firm. The hope is they continue to support each other on their road to being the future leaders of our business.”
Graduates were joined at their induction by a number of our long-serving partners who provided insights into their respective business areas and will go on to mentor the new talent.
"It has been an exciting and challenging experience so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds."
“Already I have had the opportunity to meet various teams to get an insight into their current work and projects,” said graduate Declan Carroll.
“It has been an exciting and challenging experience so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds.”
Meanwhile, of the new apprenticeship intake, 21 have taken up roles in our Pension Administration department and four in our IT department, representing a significant increase on the seven openings available in 2018.
Barnett Waddingham apprentices are supported through a structured learning and development programme to enable them to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and behaviours to the Training Provider and ultimately to the End Point Assessor, helping them to fulfil the Apprenticeship Standards.
Our overall workforce now exceeds 1,280 members, with around 130 having joined since January. Further increases are earmarked with investment into new sites and office space due in 2020.
