Thankfully, the truth is far more exciting.
Insurance touches every other industry in the world and every aspect of our daily lives. From protection for music gigs and festivals, to cover for your home, car and pets. Insurance is a broad and varied industry.
The most important aspect of the insurance industry is paying claims. When things go wrong, businesses and people rely on the insurance industry to pay their claims. This money helps them get their businesses and lives back on track.
Before paying a claim, insurance companies need to be sure the claim is genuine. They employ specially trained staff to make this assessment. Claims consultants need to be: detectives, lawyers, project managers, marketers, counsellors and cyber experts. With a career in insurance, you can be who you want to be.

One day, will you be in the team that approves a multi-million pound claim by an airline?
Does that sound boring?
