NIG welcomes Risk Control Surveyor Apprentices


Authored by NIG

Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to build an even more diverse culture and we believe it enables us to strengthen our business and help build a brighter future for people, that want to develop their career. At NIG, we are committed to ‘growing our own’ and understand the importance of what surveyors bring to our brokers and clients.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our NIG Apprenticeship Programme, that will fully train 6 new field-based risk control surveyors. Each apprentice will receive a Level 4 Insurance Professional Diploma with Cert CII as well as externally recognised industry qualifications. This is the first of its kind for such a technical role.

Each of the apprentices will have an NIG mentor and a Surveyor Buddy to give them all the support they need on their amazing journey. They will also benefit from 1 day a week dedicated to learning, giving them the time to focus on their academic studies.

Good luck to our fantastic cohort – your exciting new career starts here!

About NIG

We’ve been experts in commercial insurance for 125 years.

The National Insurance and Guarantee Corporation (NIG) is a broker only insurer; we believe in getting to know both the brokers we work with and their clients’ businesses, building trusted partnerships that last for the long-term. Our highly experienced underwriting team are focused on working with brokers to identify and understand the risks faced by UK enterprises. Together, with our risk control experts and risk management tools we develop solutions to help UK enterprises reduce and mitigate key exposures. We offer a wide range of products with flexibility to create tailored insurance cover and when clients need us, claims are dealt with quickly and fairly through a proactive claims approach.

Our trading model has been designed to reflect the differing requirements of how brokers like to trade, with regional offices, National Trading Centre, National Schemes Centre, eTrade Centre of Excellence and dedicated experts for specialist sectors.

We’re investing in new technology to make us even easier to trade with. We’re launching an online risk management resource supported by our in-house Risk Control Team and introduced online claims submissions to speed up the claims process, minimising disruption to clients’ businesses. We are also the only insurer two years running with a five-star rating for both TheHub and Software Houses, in the Insurance Times 2019 and 2020 eTrade survey.

We are dedicated to making UK enterprises more resilient.

NIG is a wholly owned subsidiary of Direct Line Insurance Group plc, providing stability and financial strength. Our policies are underwritten by U K Insurance Limited.
