What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
I am able to work some of my week in Lloyd's which is a great place to work. It enables me to see first hand underwriter/broker relationships and increase my knowledge of the insurance industry, particularly my own line of business that I work in. I have a good team/manager that allows me to be flexible and complete tasks in my own way. I have lots of responsibilities which means I am busy most days and especially at peak times (1/1 & 1/4).
During non-peak seasons there is not as much to do in respect of admin.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £17,000 - £19,000
Current salary: £21,000 - £23,000
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be sure to highlight the most important aspects of your CV/cover letter. Include all relevant experience; include both technical and soft skills that you have acquired in previous employment/situations.
Do you have any interview tips?
I would definitely ensure that your personality is conveyed in your interview. Keep up to date with current affairs as working in insurance requires you to have knowledge of what's going on around the world. Have working examples of when you have portrayed a certain skill. Ask the interviewer questions that relate to the job role, the company and the industry as a whole.
