We’re a small, flexible organisation and there’s no set path for your development – it’s entirely tailored to you and your needs and ambitions.
Broadly, the career path would be: Assistant, Adviser, Senior Adviser, Manager, Assistant Director, Director. There are no hard and fast rules around this as we know each person is different and brings different levels of experience and autonomy. Lots of people move around and up internally and others move externally to further their career.
Your manager will work closely with you to set stretching objectives and build your personal development plan. Our HR team will help you undertake further professional training to benefit your development and your career at the ABI and are always on hand for advice and guidance.
As well as annual performance reviews, a range of learning and development opportunities are available to employees to enhance your professional skills and understanding of insurance and public policy issues. Although we have courses offered on a regular basis, each person’s learning is specifically tailored to them. We also support professional qualifications where relevant to you and your role e.g. the CII Certificate in Insurance.
You’ll be encouraged to attend a range of in-house learning events to help you better get to know who does what at the ABI and what’s impacting our industry. You may even find yourself presenting one. Being a member organisation, we also plan and host a whole range of industry events you’ll have access to attend and network with members, regulators and policy makers.
There’s also lots of value-added initiatives to get involved in with colleagues outside your normal areas of work. We have a Sports and Social Committee, Health and Wellbeing and Values team to name a few!
