The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

What is an insurance apprenticeship?

The Insurance Practitioner Apprenticeship is an ‘earn and learn’ degree programme that combines on-the-job training with academic study.

There are plenty of reasons to undertake this apprenticeship. Developed by The Insurance Institute and representatives from across the industry, this three-year programme leads to a BA (Hons) in Insurance Practice from IT Sligo – a qualification future employers will crave.

You’ll learn the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary for a successful career in insurance and beyond, as well as also earning a salary as you study – so what are you waiting for?
