Graduates will come out of the internship with a degree certified by the ACII (Associateship of the Chartered Insurance Institute) as well as the opportunity of a career at Romero Insurance Brokers.

All interns are expected to play a role in the success of the company, get involved with day to day tasks and be diligent in their studies.
The job roles can be separated into two categories. These are not set in stone and will depend upon the applicant’s skill profile and personal qualities. The two categories are:
- Claims Handler
What does a Broker do?
Brokers work as part of a team to engage with businesses and customers. You will need to be technically capable and have excellent interpersonal skills. The role lends itself to those who are able to quickly build and maintain strong personal relationships. A good broker is able to negotiate and present risks in a favourable manner in order to receive the best premiums.
Being a broker is ideal for those who can communicate effectively and uphold a great attention to detail. We are looking for tenacious and lively individuals who show an enthusiastic approach to life. We expect our A-level graduates, by the end of their programme, to fully understand how the insurance market works and is integral to society and the economy.
What does it mean to be a Claims Handler?
Claims is at the very heart of a great insurance broker; our excellent claims team is what makes Romero Insurance Brokers stand out from the competition. A-level graduates will learn from our award-winning team of handlers through their diligence and exceptional attentiveness. Claims handlers need to be able to empathise with clients and use their technical knowledge to find imaginative and well-reasoned solutions. We are looking for empathetic, well-mannered and thoughtful students to grow under our tutorship.
A good graduate claim handler will be a sponge, soaking up case law and legislation. They will want to dig into problems and express their opinions succinctly, even in the face of authority and contrary points of view.
