Impress employers with membership of the CII, the world's largest professional body for risk and financial services


Impress employers with membership of the CII, the world's largest professional body for risk and financial services If you're about to start a degree or you're part-way through one, you should already be thinking about work placements.  

If you're about to embark on the final year of study then you'll need to think very carefully about your next steps.  Shortly, employers will advertise their graduate schemes and placements for 2013 (in fact, Marsh are taking applications now - click here for more information), but there's something you can do to give your application an extra edge.

The CII is the world's largest professional body for insurance, risk and financial services and has over 105, 000 members in more than 150 different countries.   There is a low-cost level of CII membership for students at UK universities - Discover membership.

For just £35.00 a year (less than a pint a month) you can access the CII's Knowledge Services website - an online library that provides unrivalled access to insurance and financial services publications and documents. It's an excellent research tool, especially when applying for that all-important job.

As a Discover member you'll also gain access to the exclusive Discover Risk LinkedIn group.  The group provides you with an opportunity to build your network of employers and make yourself known amongst sector professionals.

Perhaps most importantly, Discover membership gives you the chance to meet local professionals at networking events.  Your membership plugs you in to one of 60 local institutes around the UK, meaning that you are never far from a specialist who could open the door to a successful career.  Click here to see the CII's list of local institutes.

Become a Discover member and show potential employers that you're serious about a career in the sector.
