M&DH are proud to announce the launch of the M&DH Academy from the 1st October 2015. We are a growth orientated company, enacting a remarkable level of development across every department within the company, from sales to admin and IT. We are committed to meeting the ever growing needs of every department, and to utilising exposure to every facet of company work as a training ground for progression and development.
You may begin your career at M&DH in our dedicated Sales Support team, but the fluidity and flexibility of the M&DH Academy ensures that should you show the competence, drive and commitment to a career at M&DH, then there is no obstacle to movement to the Sales Support and Renewals teams, and ultimately to your graduation as a qualified specialist construction insurance consultant.
Education and Knowledge development is at the heart of this new initiative, and M&DH are happy to announce that they will sponsor every Academy participant through the Certification in Insurance provided by The Chartered Insurance Institute.
The birth of the M&DH Academy originated in the wake of a number of success stories that have seen recent graduates progress rapidly through the company hierarchy into senior and managerial roles. M&DH understands the benefit of developing ambitious and motivated people and it is our hope that the M&DH Academy will produce the future leaders of the company.

In October 2020 I joined M&DH as an Academy trainee, Prior to this I had no insurance background and come from the construction industry as an electrician, As you can imagine it’s very different to insurance but I wanted to do something more challenging and rewarding. I have many ambitions in the M&DH academy the main being to progress into the sales team and even maybe become a senior salesman. After my interview I realised this was the place I wanted to gain my insurance knowledge and progress in my career.
Before deciding to be part of the M&DH academy I was working at a trade merchant. I had been searching for the perfect career that best suited me. After trying various construction roles and even a job in teaching primary school children, I came across a role being advertised for M&DH insurance academy. After doing some research I realised how appealing this job role was and was lucky enough to become part of it! I want to go as far as I can and push myself to the max. Whatever role that leads me to, I’m happy! In line with my ambitions I would like to be a part of the sales team eventually, as I said whatever route that takes me on to get there, I’m pleased to be on the rewarding journey.
I recently graduated from Bournemouth university, gaining a degree in sport psychology. After choosing law modules in my final year, I found that I enjoyed this more than the coaching side, and so chose to pursue a career in a more professional environment. I found that a career in Insurance allowed me to use knowledge I gained in my law modules, and M&DH was the perfect place to progress and learn the Insurance industry in more detail.
