Graduate Open Day: Find out what it would be like to work for the London insurance market on 16 October 2017

 

LMG Representing the London specialist insurance market

Insurance – Will you take the risk?

 

Save the date for a Graduate Open Day to find out more about the rewarding career opportunities that the London Insurance Market offers ambitious young people.

Insurance is an exciting and diverse sector: it balances risks (catastrophic hurricanes or a world-wide cyber breach) against probability and rapidly changing environments and customer demands. The London Insurance Market is the world-leading hub for insurance and reinsurance, employing over 52,000 people and handling $91bn worth of business. Come and find out how to be a part of it, and all the various roles that working in this dynamic market offers.

The event is for undergraduates and we are particularly encouraging applications from women. The event will include interactive presentations and workshops and a networking opportunity with potential employers. You will also get to visit two of the City of London’s most iconic buildings not usually open to the public – Lloyd’s of London and the Leadenhall Building (‘the Cheesegrater’).

Date: Monday, 16 October 2017

Time: 10.30am – 5.30pm

Venues: Lloyd’s of London and the Leadenhall Building

The day is free to attend but places are limited. To register your interest or for more information, contact Faye Roney

In the meantime, why not find out more about career opportunities at London Insurance Market organisations by following @londoninsurancelife on Instagram and Facebook and @londoninslife on Twitter.

Got a 2:2?

Here are some useful tips I’ve come across in a Guardian Careers article if you have graduated with a 2:2 . Totally agree with the advice in the article – especially what Laura Hooke says, an ex-careers consultant at City! Probably the worst part of getting a 2:2 is getting that first job. After you’ve proved yourself in a role, you will rarely be asked about your result again – the focus will be on your work experience and achievements at work. Just in case you are still hankering after a grad scheme though, UK Power Networks (Engineering and Business pathways), the Civil Service Fast Stream (some pathways) and the NHS Management grad scheme are all programmes are open to you and there are more if you take the time to research carefully.
