What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Insurance is a technical but also very social industry so make sure to mention something in your CV which demonstrates you're ability to interact with different people confidently, whether this means mentioning that you worked in a client-facing position before or if you're a school-leaver/grad you may want to mention any roles/activities you did during education which gave you exposure to meeting different people i.e. mentoring, organizing social events, social clubs etc. These also demonstrate your ability to be a team player or even leadership skills.
Do you have any interview tips?
Try to have a good balance between discussing your achievements/qualifications and also offer skills you may have or hobbies you have. This keeps the discussion interesting and means you show different aspects of yourself which are all important in someway in the workplace. This is one of the industries where having different qualities/interests is important too.
Try to be relaxed and as calm as possible. Ask questions about the role and about the industry if you're new to it.
