Why insurance?

Insurance is all about protecting customers – individuals, businesses or whole communities – and delivering peace of mind when they need it most. In a rapidly-changing world, we’re constantly faced with new risks. Insurance is continuously evolving to develop policies to cover these types of risks and as a result, there are always new and exciting roles available.

Graduates from all backgrounds can start a career in insurance. Whether you have an analytical mind or a creative streak, opportunities exist from underwriting and claims to IT, HR and marketing – you just need passion and a drive to succeed!

Go anywhere

When you work in insurance, you’ll undertake qualifications to make sure you’re always at the top of your game.

An added benefit is that our qualifications can open doors and create exciting opportunities across the globe. With world class, internationally recognised qualifications under their belts, our graduates have gone on to secure careers in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the US and across Europe.
