NFU Mutual, a leading general insurer and financial services company, has been serving the rural community for over 100 years. As their local agency office in Bury St Edmunds, Blackwell, Walters, Santon & Anthony deliver their award-winning service and sell their product range across our region, championing the honest, personal approach to customer service for which they’re famous.
They have an exciting opportunity for an Apprentice to join the team.
