Network Pink is running a graduate training programme to help bring new blood into the protection and mortgage industry.
The graduates will be trained by Pink and then placed in its network firms.
Pink will also be responsible for the graduates' supervision during the first three months.
The first graduate selection day will take place on the 4th October. Graduates will be introduced to the Pink network, receive an overview of the mortgage and protection market, and go through a selection process.
Successful candidates will receive a four-day training course and on-going training in the field. The graduates will be trained as life and protection sellers to help mortgage firms.
The training will be based on the Aviva Academy that Pink has run in conjunction with Aviva for the past twelve months for mortgage brokers who wanted to sell more protection.
Jeff Woods, business development director at Pink, says: "Financial services is an aging industry with the average age of advisers in most firms across the industry at about 50. At Pink we think it is essential to bring in some new blood; we also think it is vital to increase the number of people who are trained to sell protection at a time when government benefits are lower than ever but protection sales are falling.
"Pink's graduate training scheme will bring bright, young graduates into the industry, provide them with great training, both in the classroom and in the field and will do its part both to help our network firms and to reduce the protection gap."
