TMG calls for new brokers with learn and earn opportunity

A partnership announced late last year between Travel Managers Group (TMG), international financial technology business, Ratebroker, and the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) is opening doors for experienced New Zealand travel brokers so they can get back to earning – this time providing financial advice.

Since launching the partnership in December, TMG brokers have been taking up the training in big numbers, allowing them to earn while they learn. 

The partnership, now underway, allows TMG travel brokers to be employed through Ratebroker, and provides access to a fully-funded comprehensive training and mentoring programme while receiving full-time income, on top of any travel sales. The retrained brokers will be able to offer clients life and health insurance, mortgage protection and income insurance protection, in addition to travel offerings.

Cath McLeod, general manager, TMG says even as borders begin to open, it will take time for agents to build forward bookings. ‘Having a consistent income for 12 months will be welcome support for all who take advantage of this programme. This is the perfect time to join TMG and earn an additional, full-time wage.’

Each participant will receive a one-year fixed term contract and an opportunity
to work across both industries on an on-going basis, with financial certifications and registrations behind them. MSD funding will help with the cost of the initial 12 weeks training, registration
and certification. 

Amanda Nicolle, director of industry partnership, Ministry of Social Development says the certainty of being employed with a one-year fixed term contract is important given the impact Covid-19 has had on international travel and the income of travel brokers.

Matthew Grant, founder and CEO Ratebroker, adds the partnership will have a significant national presence.

TMG is accepting new brokers to start now. Enrolments for the training programme are only open until 15 February 2021. For a confidential discussion about joining TMG, contact
