Make a difference at Mazars
From the first day you arrive at Mazars, you will be welcomed with rewarding work, a good client list and supportive colleagues – all the crucial ingredients you need to inspire and educate you as you study for your qualification.
An overview of the role
Your first year will be spent learning about the financial services industry in general. You will also learn about the employee benefits market including Corporate pensions, group risk and protection, health and wellbeing and flexible benefits. As well as working towards your general professional qualifications you will also have the opportunity to specialise in a particular area.
Your day to day work will include supporting the employee benefit team on routine administration and project based work to gain a strong knowledge of employee benefits. The market is constantly evolving and we would encourage you to carry out various market related research projects to support the development of our business.
Your main responsibilities will be to learn all aspects of the business, to become a valued member of the team and to pass your initial professional exams.
As your training contract progresses you will become more involved with client work and will work closely with the client managers and client directors. You will be given the opportunity to develop into a client manager and have responsibility for servicing a portfolio of clients.
How we will support you
We will fund you to study towards the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) exams and as you progress you will be able to study for the Pensions Management Institute exams (PMI)
You will receive a full study package and time off to attend college but, with Mazars your professional qualification is only part of the story. We support all our trainees with a blended approach to training and development, classroom study, 1:1 coaching and support and, as you progress, technical and skills training to enable you to progress to management and leadership positions.
You will spend time away from the office to attend classes for tuition and revision stages of each exam. The classroom taught approach means that you will have the support of your peers and valuable study time for your exams.
We also operate a number of in-house training courses which will give you technical insight to assist you to keep up with changes in legislation and case law, both in the UK and worldwide.
