Barbican welcomes Emma Attwaters and Rachael Connor to Apprenticeship Scheme

Barbican Insurance Group is delighted to welcome two new joiners to the Barbican Insurance Academy– Emma Attwaters and Rachael Connor.

Emma has joined Barbican on a secondment from the Lloyd’s Apprenticeship Scheme, which she began in September 2013. Most recently, she has been working with the Strategy and Business Planning team in the Lloyd’s Corporation and the UK Corporate team in Tysers Brokers as part of the Lloyd’s programme.

Rachael joined the Barbican team in February as an office administrator, having applied to become part of the Barbican Apprenticeship Scheme via the National Apprenticeship Scheme. Prior to joining Barbican, Rachael was at BDO LLP.

Commenting on the continuing success of the Insurance Academy, David Reeves, Chief Executive Officer of Barbican Insurance Group, said: “The Academy provides the next generation of insurance industry talent with a platform to build on their potential, to develop their skills, to secure professional qualifications and to establish the contacts and networks that will provide the framework for their future careers in the insurance industry.”

We wish Emma and Rachael every success on the Apprenticeship Scheme and look forward to watching them rise through the insurance ranks in the coming years.
