Welcome to our recruitment portal. I hope this will be your stepping stone to joining our academy building your career in the field of financial advice and joining one of South Africa’s leading insurer, Discovery.

Discovery is a services organisation that operates in the healthcare, life assurance, short-term insurance, savings and investment and wellness markets. Our purpose is to make people healthier and to enhance and protect their lives. We make people healthier by making them aware of their health risk factors and helping them to manage and improve their health.

In support of Discovery’s ambitions, the Discovery Financial Adviser Academy is an elite two-year programme that aims to recruit graduates and expose them to careers in financial services. The programme looks to fill Discovery’s sales and distribution channels with talented and competent individuals who can help take the Discovery value proposition to our clients.

More than ever, South Africans need professional assistance with financial planning so they can achieve their dreams and life goals. The right people to provide such assistance are qualified and accredited financial advisers, but unfortunately there aren’t enough of them at present. Graduates will be equipped to handle the complexity of the intermediary landscape while providing excellent standards of financial planning advice and services to clients. They will be exposed to mentoring from our top financial advisers and other Discovery business leaders, and provided with product training, as well as regulatory and marketing support.

The Academy is aimed at outstanding, talented graduates who possess the necessary requirements and meet our qualifying criteria. This is an exciting opportunity for graduates to pursue. We need new talent to drive our vision of sustained growth within our distribution channels. This is why we seek to recruit university graduates that are passionate about this career path: people who have a burning desire to work hard to make a difference in society.
