Apprenticeship

For many years now, we at ERGO have been making efforts to offer young people the opportunity for an apprenticeship as insurance expert. The profession is usually learned within three years as part of a dual training programme.

The profession as insurance expert

Insurance experts can work in all sub-sectors of companies in the insurance industry. The activities fully trained apprentices can carry out include customer service and support, handling complaints, policy issuing, accounting as well as participating in claims assessment and claims inspection.

Dual training at ERGO

The apprenticeship occurs in a dual training system, i.e. the acquisition of theoretical knowledge at vocational school as well as through practical training in a company. Our apprentices are thus given the opportunity to get to know as many areas of the company as possible. An in-house training plan enables them to switch between these areas and become familiar with work processes. The individual supervision and support of our apprentices are carried out by dedicated trainers among our colleagues in the departments.

How to apply

Interested? We’re happy to hear that! Send us your personal documents (CV, letter of application, last annual school report) to karriere@ergo-versicherung.at. After an initial interview, you will take a test to determine your performance. This test is carried out in cooperation with an educational institute and tests, among other things, basic German and mathematical skills, accuracy, recognition of correlations as well as comprehensive reading. Ideally, a quick perception and a positive attitude to work complete your application profile.

Let's go!

Training starts in September, and after a maximum of three years you will have finished the apprentice as an insurance expert. Particularly successful apprentices can look forward to an additional reward for their achievements after passing the final exams. We at ERGO are also keen to keep our fully trained apprentices in the company. Many of our former apprentices now work for example in customer service or in one of the specialist departments.
