Chubb has announced the launch of a new academy which is a two-year programme aimed at recruiting a diverse range of new talent from across Continental Europe.
The scheme is targeted at individuals in the early stages of their career journey, with no requirement for a university degree or previous experience in the insurance sector.
Participation in the academy aims to lay the foundation for an internationally-focused career, initially in property and casualty commercial insurance, with a view to moving into a professional role in any part of the Chubb organisation.
Over the course of 24 months, successful candidates will spend 20% of their time in structured learning and the remainder training on the job. They will also work with a mentor to help them navigate through professional situations in their early development.
Sara Mitchell, division president, Continental Europe, Middle East and North Africa, Chubb, said: “The insurance sector has changed significantly in recent years and insurers need to recruit people from the widest range of backgrounds possible.
“Chubb Academy will ensure we have the people and skills to continue to stay relevant both in terms of the clients we work with and our understanding of their risks.”
