Lloyd’s is the world’s leading specialist insurance market, carrying out business in over 200 countries across the globe. It is very often the first brand to insure little known or complex risks, such as terrorism and hurricanes.
The business is not a typical insurance company, as it’s made up of a society of members, both corporate and individuals, who underwrite in syndicates. It is funded by investment institutions and international insurance companies. While it may be the world’s best known insurance brand, the complex way in which it operates means that it’s also one of the least understood.
Graduate programmes at Lloyd’s are offered in a range of areas, including Claims, Relationship Management, Human Resources, Corporate Communications, and Market Services. All involve taking part in a series of placements, and being given responsibility for a diverse range of projects. In terms of support, there’s a thorough induction programme and continuous learning offerings.
Lloyd’s recruit graduates from all disciplines, though they’re looking for a strong academic background, excellent analytical skills, and the ability to think creatively.
The starting salary and benefits package is competitive.
