Has your school or college discovered risk?


Since September, we've delivered some 60 events around the country, to get you thinking about the rewards that insurance and risk can offer. From student sessions at universities to our well-known Discover Risk board game, there is something for everyone.

Chris Marsden was a recent recruit to the sector, and was kind enough to return to his old haunts to promote the profession.

"Having recently become involved within insurance, the opportunity arose for me to attend a careers convention at my former school, The Kings School, Tynemouth.

"The event helped students to look and seek advice about possible career paths. Representing both the insurance profession and my current employer, Weir Insurance Brokers, I was able to speak to pupils and pass on relevant information about the opportunities available.

"I was attracted to the profession because insurance will always be there, in many different areas. My passion for sport and design is linked with my current profession and although I am not physically playing the game or designing the next famous landmark I am certainly involved as far as the insurance side goes, which definitely gives me job satisfaction.

"The new career path I have chosen offers good training and opportunities to develop skills which will be important in the future. It keeps me interested and challenges me to continually develop my knowledge and understanding of the insurance world. I was grateful to be able to pass on information to the current pupils of how my career path is starting to unfold, and how insurance could possibly be the way forward for them as well."
