Airmic to partner universities
Airmic, the UK association for risk managers and insurance buyers, has announced plans to partner UK universities in an initiative designed to inject young talent into the risk management profession, develop the broader business skills of its membership and form academic liaisons.
The association warned that the profession must do more to retain relevance in a changing world, or experience a talent gap.
The initiative, Growing the Profession, will see Airmic work with six universities that offer undergraduate and Master’s degrees in risk, insurance and affiliated subjects. The universities are: University of Southampton Business School, Cass Business School, Cranfield School of Management, University of Nottingham Business School, Glasgow School for Business and Society and University of Exeter Business School.
The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation will host its first annual quiz night on 15 September at Balls Brothers in London.
The closing date is Monday 11 September 2017 to complete the CII’s 2017 membership survey and give your views and experiences of membership.
Over forty rising stars from across the profession attended the launch event for the CII’s flagship talent programme: the New Generation Group in October.
