Graduate broker, Construction at Marsh

Application Advice: Marsh's application process is very focused on personality and how well you network with others so it's important to come across as confident and comfortable in front of the assessors, demonstrating that you have the right soft skills for the job.

, at Marsh

Application Advice: Be genuine and engaged in questions. Make it as unique as possible - questions like 'why insurance' or 'why Marsh' may sound generic but if you can put a personal spin on it then you will come across well. Equally make sure you ask thoughtful questions about Marsh - senior management are very aware about the shortfalls of Marsh as an employer (as well as the benefits). Showing recognition for this demonstrates that you are thoughtful and have made a full evaluation of Marsh for your career.

Interview Advice: Be authentic and enthusiastic in why you want to work in insurance and for Marsh - if you can tailor them to your personality/objectives all the better. Try to avoid being too loud and attention seeking in the assessment days, this doesn't come across well and the assessors are expert at seeing through this. Don't be backward and get involved where you can - 'be yourself' is overused but it really does apply here.

Marsh

Client Advisor, National Corporate Practice at Marsh

Application Advice: Find experience. The market is quite accessible to gain experience, be that through working in a call centre in the Summer or looking into your school leavers network to see who currently works in the industry. This will really help you understand the industry which will set you apart at application time. Most people don't start out wanting to go into insurance so if you can show some drive to move into it with proven experience or research your application will only be strengthened.

Interview Advice: Be yourself. It's a cliché, however a lot of the interview and assessment centre is based around how you can network. Don't be frightened by the word "networking" as it is effectively just talking to people. If you are yourself you will come off much more genuinely enthusiastic than falsely saying what you think they want to hear.

Relax and be yourself at least a bit for the phone interviews. Practice for the online tests so you know what to expect.

Interview Advice: Read up about the business and its core values - the greater good, business transparency, ethics. Read about current events and consider how insurance may have been involved or affected (i.e. floods in Cumbria, falling price of oil). Speak in a measured way for your presentation and don't be afraid to consider your answers carefully in the interview. They may ask you for a weakness or a 'time you were wrong about something' - think of a good answer. Focus on what makes you unique and different - everyone has a good degree but they want to know about your skills and personality.

Catlin Insurance

Graduate Trainee, Business Change at Catlin Insurance

Application Advice: I'd suggest candidates who are considering applying to Catlin research the values Catlin prize. Transparency, Accountability, Teamwork, Integrity and Dignity are at the core of everything we do at Catlin and it is really important that candidates assess these values and think about whether Catlin is a firm they want to be involved with. Furthermore I'd suggest that candidates research our placement in the market and how we got there in our short history. It would also be worth gathering information about our plans for expansion and the opportunities this may bring - whilst I think a growing organisation is an exciting one to be part of it is worth considering for potential candidates.
