The good news is that the world of insurance is a varied and exciting one with lots of room for progression – making it a very satisfying profession to be part of.
You could be an accountant who wants to move to become an actuary, you could be a middle-level manager looking to use your skills in a different profession or you could be looking for a part-time admin role and decide to work in either a customer call centre or in a brokerage, for example. Whatever you choose to do and whatever your level of experience, the options are extensive.
In fact, the recent Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) Insurance Salary and Workplace Survey 2014/2015 found that having interesting and challenging work to do is just as motivating for insurance professionals as ﬁnancial reward. In fact, 82% cited the former in their top five key motivators and the same proportion (82%) were motivated by the latter. Other motivators included recognition (62%), having a great, friendly team (61%), job security (48%) and good career prospects (45%).
