333 trainees at Talanx – Pedro from Spain has cracked the job market

On 1 September 84 school-leavers joined the ranks of those already undergoing training at Talanx – be it the "traditional" approach as certified insurance and financial practitioners or as part of an integrated degree programme in the disciplines of insurance studies or business IT. This means that Talanx is currently employing altogether 333 trainees nationwide at 18 locations across Germany. Once they have successfully completed their training, all the young recruits have an opportunity to be taken on by Talanx.

Pedro Pancorbo Parras is one of those who have already cracked the job market. With the support of the "Adelante" funding and development programme run by Hannover Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK), he swapped an uncertain career future in his home region of Andalusia for training as a certified insurance practitioner with Talanx in Hannover. The numerous chances to tackle assignments in international areas of HDI Global SE were particularly welcome. "I looked for an opportunity for myself and found it in Germany", Pedro Pancorbo Parras explains. He now has his completed training behind him and has been working since the spring of 2018 as a junior underwriter for property business with HDI Global SE in Barcelona – "pure good fortune", as he puts it. You can follow his journey from Spain to Hannover and back here.

Talanx has been involved in the "Adelante" project for three years, thereby enabling talented young career starters from Spain to benefit from training in Hannover.
