Eleanor Chisnall from Lark, completes Allianz Scholarship Programme as Top Scholar

We are pleased to announce that Eleanor Chisnall, an Internal Compliance Auditor based in our Colchester office has successfully completed the Allianz Scholarship Programme and has also achieved recognition as the top scholar amongst 50 other candidates.

The award-winning Allianz Scholarship Programme is open to commercial and personal lines brokers, supporting each individual to achieve the Dip CII qualification within 18 months. By the end of the programme the scholars have developed key skills and will have access to a network of alumni members throughout their professional development.

With commitment and hard work throughout the programme, Eleanor attained a distinction in each examination undertaken and was recognised as the top scholar.

Simon McGinn, General Manger – Commercial and Personal at Allianz, said: “We’d like to congratulate Eleanor on her amazing achievement which is a testament to how hard she has worked during the last 18 months. This is great recognition for her efforts and demonstrates the quality of the tuition Allianz provides through our Scholarship Programme.”

During her time on the programme, Eleanor was also awarded the prestigious Chubb Insurance Company of Europe Prize for her exceptional performance in P93 Commercial Property and Business Interruption insurances.  This national prize is presented to the candidate who is judged to have passed with the greatest merit.

Eleanor said, “The Allianz Scholarship was a really valuable experience. The training sessions provided by Allianz were useful both for technical information as well as study guidance, additionally the peer to peer support between scholars motivated me to complete the qualification within a shorter time frame than on my own. Having achieved Dip CII, I am more confident in my insurance knowledge and I can apply it in my day to day role.”

“At Lark, we understand the importance of Learning and Development. We encourage and support our staff in the attainment of professional qualifications and aim to encourage their ambition. We are proud of how hard our staff work and their dedication to their studies, which supports our business ethos of providing all clients with an outstanding level of service and professional advice.” said Stephen Lark, Managing Director of Lark.

We would like to congratulate Eleanor on this outstanding achievement and wish her well in developing her career further at Lark.
