Sam Freeman and Ayesha Williams joined the specialist insurer in September and were recruited from schools nearby to Just Retirement’s base in Surrey.
Both candidates are working in full-time customer service roles. A half day each week is given over towards studying for a level 2 certificate in Financial Services at Bromley College.
Just Retirement human resources director Anne Ridge says: “Our future success depends on attracting the talented young people to take this business forward.
“Sam and Ayesha will work closely with existing team members to gain invaluable workplace experience while working towards their qualifications. They are treated as permanent staff with the same benefits, but we see them as pioneers for a much wider apprenticeship programme.”
