LOCAL Insurance firm Evans Insurance Brokers celebrates its fourth birthday next month. The company was founded in April 2012 by Dan Evans, who started his career in the industry as an apprentice.
Now the Managing Director of his own business, Dan recognises the value of apprenticeships and the opportunities that it afforded him as a young employee. In the last 12 months, Dan has now given back by reinvesting in young apprentices to work in his business and credits them with much of the company’s recent success.
Dan says “I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to build a career through the apprenticeship scheme, which has ultimately led to me starting my own business. I believe there is a lot of talent out there in young people and with the help of our more experienced staff, enjoy helping them to develop this in the work place”
In October 2015 Evans Insurance Won Best Small Business of the Year at the Havering Business Awards, and they are currently finalists for two categories including Apprentice of the Year at the Thurrock Business Awards, which takes place in April.
Finalist and Digital Marketing Apprentice Pippa Cox says “To be able to come straight out of college and be given the opportunity to build a career doing a job I love is something I am extremely grateful for. During this apprenticeship I have learned so much, even though I have only been here for a short time. I am thrilled to be a finalist for Apprentice of the Year and plan to further develop my existing skills, as well as learn a whole host of new skills throughout the remainder of my apprenticeship”
