RATESDOTCA opens 80 full-time jobs at Welland brokerage arm

Welland-based Scoop Insurance, the brokerage arm of RATESDOTCA Group Ltd., is looking to add 80 full-time insurance brokers to its sales and services workforce in the next several months.

The new positions do not require previous insurance experience, RATESDOTCA said in a statement. The company will instead provide on-the-job-training for new recruits, with the goal of supporting them to become licensed insurance brokers certified by the Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario (RIBO).

“For anyone who is considering a change, this is an excellent opportunity to try a new career without the usual investment in additional schooling or training programs,” said Darryl May, vice-president of insurance and brokerages at RATESDOTCA. “It’s also an opportunity to enter a secure and stable industry that provides plenty of chances to advance. The insurance industry is constantly growing and is always in need of new people.”

The hiring comes as the company looks to expand its operations in Welland. At the height of the pandemic, Scoop Insurance bolstered its workforce with 75 new hires through virtual interviews and an additional 20 through drive-through interviews.

The firm is also an active participant in several community initiatives, including the Coldest Night of the Year run by Open Arms Mission, and those by The Legion, Niagara Health Foundation, and Pathstone Foundation.
