Elinor continues to inspire the next generation of financial services apprentices

Posting date: 08 Feb 2024

Legal & General runs apprentice programmes across London, Cardiff and Hove, welcoming talent to an enterprise-wide community which shares ideas and learning in a supportive environment.

The programmes create excellent foundations for long-term careers. Elinor Worthington started out as an apprentice and has continued to thrive at Legal & General. She champions the value of apprenticeships for anyone wanting to gain experience, upskill or change career to achieve their aspirations.

What attracted you to do an apprenticeship at Legal & General?

I graduated from university with an Environmental Science degree but accepted an entry-level role in financial services at Legal & General to begin earning a wage. I would never have thought back then I’d still be at the company 20 years on.

That’s down, in large part, to the company’s commitment to training, which has seen me complete two apprenticeships that have allowed me to progress into the position I am in today. My career goals have changed during my time at Legal & General and even after 20 years, I still feel like I’m on my learning journey.

More broadly, why are apprenticeships a good career option?

There are so many different and exciting career routes available through an apprenticeship, for people starting out or those thinking of changing careers. Not just in the financial services industry, but across other sectors too. Apprenticeships are a great way for people to develop their knowledge or even learn a completely new skill set so they can future-proof their career, all whilst maintaining a salary and financial security.

Why should others consider exploring an apprenticeship at Legal & General?

There are so many unique benefits for those looking to kick-start their career or try something new.
