There are so many opportunities to progress and develop within the insurance industry. Being an III graduate has given me not only the skills and knowledge I need to do my job, but also the opportunity to challenge myself. I started off by earning the APA in 2013 and in 2014, I was awarded the CIP. I've now decided to go beyond what my role requires by studying towards the Advanced Diploma in Insurance (ACII). The III has so many supports available, both face to face and online, which really helps with the challenge of combining study and work.
I know there's a myth out there that insurance is boring, but that couldn't be further from the truth. As a Motor Claims Handler, I'm on the frontline dealing with people on a daily basis; this is my favourite part of the job. Every day is different and I am constantly coming across new situations in Claims, which keeps things interesting – there is never a dull moment!
