Life-changing prizes for The Insurance Apprentice winner!

At GIFS, we have a say-yes policy to nurturing promising talent, smashing age-old perceptions about the insurance industry, and bringing sexy back to the Financial Services Sector. This is why we’re excited to be on board yet again as a Platinum Sponsor for The Insurance Apprentice (TIA)!

There’s huge industry buzz ahead of the 6th series. The nine apprentices have been carefully chosen and the cameras are set to roll in January. TIA is a local adaptation of the popular US TV series, The Apprentice, where candidates are put through their paces, given tasks, rated and then dismissed with the aim of homing in on the “cream of the crop.”

Over the past few years, The Insurance Apprentice, has evolved into one of the most talked-about initiatives within the short-term insurance space, striking the right balance between educating and mentoring, and entertaining while informing. “TIA speaks to GIFS’ passion to mould eager young, minds in insurance, and to tap into and grow talent through shared knowledge and experience so we can create a new generation of forward-thinkers who readily embrace a high-performance culture,” explains GIFS CEO, Dr Kershen Pillay.

As Platinum Sponsor, we are offering several life-changing prizes including R20 000 in cash to the TIA 2020 winner, as well as a personalised wardrobe from style gurus, Tweak ‘n Style.

The second and third winners will each be awarded a GIFS NQF 5 bursary valued at R27 500. All nine finalists will be treated to an image makeover and personalised style consults from Tweak ‘n Style to get them camera-ready. We’ve also arranged for a corporate etiquette course for all nine finalists.

With so much buzz on the go, we can’t wait to see what TIA 2020 serves up when it’s lights, camera and action from 17 to 24 January 2020!
