The tenets of our highly regarded trainee programme are inspiration, discipline and self-realisation.
The training and development of our staff is an essential part of our commitment to our clients. The only way we can deliver the standards we expect is if we employ the best, most highly skilled people in the industry.
We have developed our own trainee programme, which sets out to provide comprehensive grounding in the world of marine insurance and an introduction to an exciting and lasting career.
Our programme is one of the best in the marine broking industry and it takes three years to complete.
We offer a balanced mix of classroom study, on-the-job training and mentoring from some of the most experienced operators in the industry. Graduates become authorised Marine Brokers, equipped with the basic skills they need to begin work as an international broker in any of our offices around the world.
Responsibility right from the start
At Edge, a trainee position is a job with responsibility. Trainees are important members of our team, and are given real assignments. Working on live projects, gaining unique insights into the Group, is valuable knowledge and experience. Trainees have mentors and work as part of a team.
We monitor trainees’ progress through formal assessments and structured feedback on a half-yearly basis. Mentors and team leaders give continuous feedback throughout the programme, as trainees’ complete their national authorisation procedure, which Edge pays for in accordance with the terms of each contract.
Trainees also undergo several training courses administered by underwriters and partners, spend time at sea with one of our shipping clients, receive training in an underwriting organisation at Lloyd’s or in one of our other markets, and work at one of our offices in London, Singapore, Germany or Norway.
Edge provides all the training that candidates need in order to become brokers. Our trainee programme is a platform for professional growth and development in our industry.
But we cannot manage everything; although we provide every support, self-realisation is an individual responsibility that each trainee must own. We look for evidence of self-discipline, a can-do attitude and a high degree of motivation, for these are the attributes required in order to win trust and build friendships with like-minded people in the most exciting business in the world: international shipping.
We invite candidates to bring talent, fresh thinking and passion to this world.
