The CII is calling for potential future leaders in claims,
underwriting, insurance broking and the London Market to put
themselves forward for the 2015/2016 New Generation programme.
The initiative run by the CII's Faculties is intended to support
the retention of talent and develop tomorrow's insurance stars.
Designed to complement existing company talent programmes, the
year-long CPD initiative provides members with a range of learning
opportunities. These include an interactive session with key FCA
personnel, meetings with MPs and trade bodies and a
visit to the Houses of Parliament. Participants will also benefit
from media training and a series of informal networking
Each of the four faculty groups will be asked to identify and
complete a project that they believe will enhance the reputation of
the profession and improve customer outcomes.
Ant Gould, CII director of faculties, said: "In the four years
we have been running the New Generation programme we have seen some
inspiring initiatives and projects that have helped encourage
"As well as shaping the future of the profession those
participating have been able to gain new skills, understand the
wider industry and expand their networks both within and outside of
their own businesses and specialism."
Stephen Bridge, senior commercial underwriter at LV and past
member said: "The New Generation programme gave me the opportunity
to work with like-minded individuals to develop a project that we
truly believed could make a difference. Furthermore, seeing how our
initiative has been received has been a truly rewarding and unique
experience. In addition the programme allowed me to make invaluable
professional relationships through exposing me to a wide ranging
network of contacts I wouldn't have made otherwise."
Applicants for this year's programme, which starts in the
autumn, must be members of the appropriate CII faculty, have
between five to ten years insurance experience and be qualified to
at least DipCII level.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 7
August 2015. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org,
