Chartered Insurance Institute comes to Cass
Cass students discover the world of Insurance and Risk
Aspiring insurance and risk management professionals at Cass got an up-close insight into potential career paths through a recent session delivered by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).
The event was part of the CII's educational outreach programme. This brings students and professional practitioners together to discuss career paths, job roles, graduate schemes and what specific skills are needed to be successful in the sector. The session was followed by networking.
Cristina Muresan of the Cass Insurance and Risk Management Society said: "The CII event was a key stepping stone in our objective of bridging the gap between theory and practice and critical in helping our peers understand what happens in the sector.
"The industry professionals present provided a practical insight into their roles and we were all surprised by the variety and flexibility of the career options that they highlighted. Their journey in the industry and how they have navigated it has certainly inspired students at Cass Business School and increased their motivation to achieve."
Professionals from Deloitte, Lloyds, Catlin, Simply Business, Zurich and Willis were involved in the event.
Caspar Bartington, CII Relationship Manager, said: "As well as helping the professionals of tomorrow get a flavour of life working in insurance and risk management, these sessions organised by the CII recognise that general insurance businesses are always on the look-out for the brightest young talent and these events provide an opportunity for students to broaden their career choices and network with today's professionals."
"We're convinced that through these sessions we're starting to identify some of our profession's future stars."
