What are the best and worst things about your company?
The Graduate Scheme consists of eight rotations around the business which gives you exposure to the majority of the Underwriting Divisions. This allows you get to a feel of what area of the business may be suitable for you as oppose to other Graduate Schemes in the market which offer no flexibility. The ambition here is for all Graduate Trainees to eventually become Underwriters. This means that as a Graduate you will spend a lot of time making observations, completing mini projects and performing ad hoc tasks, you will not get the authority to conduct any substantial business until you are qualified and placed within a team.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The best aspect of the company for me are the people within it whilst the best aspect of my job is the rotational characteristic of the scheme as it facilitates exposure to those people.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Incentive based learning and development scheme (ACII, ACCA fully paid for etc.) The company's good reputation within the Lloyds market and internationally. You get the opportunity to ask questions and learn. TMK has a high concentration of talented underwriters and support staff. Generally the company has a good culture and atmosphere.Some Senior Underwriters may not be pleasant in their approach all the time. (Essentially you're the junior member of staff, they think you should adopt to their way of doing things.)

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The wide range of rotations allows you to sample all areas of the business as well as meet people from diverse insurance backgrounds. Working and revising for the ACII qualification can be quite stressful but the company does give you a lot of study leave and support. The teams are also very understanding about your study needs as you rotate through them.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Best: A wide range of rotations means that you learn a lot about the wider business and work with a variety of different people both of which stand you in good stead when finishing the graduate programme. There is a great social scene at TMK and a good work-life balance is encouraged. Sometimes there can be a lack of responsibility as a graduate.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
TMK is a great company to work for. There is a full range of support for any member of staff here, but especially for the graduates. You are given responsibility and opportunities to develop not only your career but your potential. Through the rotation experience you meet many people from around the company and allow yourself to build a solid foundation within the company. Post merger the company has grown in size, which impacted slightly on communicaton at the start, however, the culture has not really been impacted too much which was something we aimed to preserve.
