Leading financial businesses offering prestigious apprenticeships

Two of the country’s leading financial businesses, Swiss Re and Nationwide Building Society, have teamed up with Manchester-based training organisation Skills Solutions to offer prestigious apprenticeships.

Swiss Re is giving two apprentices the chance to study towards a Level 3 NVQ qualification in Providing Financial Services whilst working at the iconic Gherkin building in London.

The Nationwide Apprenticeship is based in Manchester in the Property Finance Team. The lucky apprentice will provide administrative support and service to customers and eventually support senior managers in the analysis and preparation of new lending requests, engaging with professional advisors and preparing facility letters.

Skills Solutions Managing Director Fiona Mellett said: “These opportunities demonstrate that the very biggest names in the financial industry are realising the potential of Apprenticeships, and they both represent an amazing chance for young people to get a head start in their careers.”
