Career planning & development

Already in the industry and thinking about either where you can go with it or that next crucial move?

If you are interested in moving into a different insurance role or sector, our interactive overview of the insurance industry will help you understand where you fit into the 'big picture'.  Have a look at our insurance roles section to also get a feel for what specific roles involve and any qualifications required.

From our own experiences, once people enter the insurance industry, they often end up not just changing employers eventually (as people do in any industry), but even completely reinventing themselves to change actual roles. Or even countries.
