Apprenticeship as a commercial employee in private insurance

Stefanie Jann
Stefanie Jann
The three-year commercial apprenticeship in the insurance sector gives you the best possible preparation for the apprenticeship examinations and the labour market.

It can be completed in the profiles "Basic", "Advanced" or with a vocational school-leaving certificate (Berufsmatura). After your apprenticeship, you can apply for a permanent post in case management (life or non-life sector). Or you can take further training to become a client advisor as part of the two-year Junior Sales programme.

Various insights, broad knowledge

To enable you to learn as much as possible about different aspects of the business you will move to a different department for each year of your apprenticeship. If you are in a non-insurance-specific department for the first year of your apprenticeship, the plan will be for you to move to insurance-specific departments for the second and third years. To ensure that theoretical knowledge is not neglected either, your apprenticeship will be supplemented by attending a vocational school and cantonal inter-company courses.

Events: fun should be part of the picture

At Helvetia social interaction is regarded as a high priority. Events such as the induction camp at the beginning of the apprenticeship, participation in the Annual General Meeting and internal industry knowledge in the second year of the apprenticeship, and the annual New Year's drinks reception add variety to the apprenticeship and also provide opportunities to make new contacts and keep up friendships. At the revision camp during the third year of the apprenticeship participants jointly go through what they have learned again – so that by July they will be celebrating passing their final apprenticeship exams.

Ready to take up the challenge?

Good school marks and a liking for dealing with people are the best prerequisites for embarking on one of our apprenticeships which begin in August.

We look forward to receiving your application!
