“I was looking through a lot of graduate schemes, but what finally sold me on the Lloyd’s Programme was the variety. I didn’t know a great deal about insurance to be honest, so the huge range of placements on the programme seemed the perfect way to get to grips with the industry. It gives you the chance to find out where you can fit into it all, and for me that was Canopius – a member organisation of Lloyd’s. I did a placement there, and I absolutely loved the team and the atmosphere – I just didn’t want to leave.
“The work environment was the other thing that really encouraged me to apply for the Lloyd’s programme. Even during the selection process, the atmosphere was warm and accommodating – right from the interview, it came across as a nice place. And I’m glad to say it’s carried on that way. It’s probably because at Lloyd’s so much of the negotiating is still done face-to-face, which makes things much more personal.
I don’t think I could have got a better introduction to insurance.”
