London Market hosts first university careers events

The London Market Group this week held its first careers events for university students in Manchester and Nottingham.

Designed to be as unique as the market they represent, the LMG hosted two events – one at the Manchester Art Gallery focusing on fine art, jewelry and collectables and one in Cozy Club in Nottingham spotlighting insurance for live events and musical artists.

Caroline Wagstaff, CEO of the LMG said:

“This is just one of a number of initiatives we have underway to make specialty insurance a destination career for young talent. We know the problem we are trying to solve. The market has more people aged over 50 than under 30, so we need to work more actively to attract the talent we need for the future.

“Our ambition is to highlight the extraordinary range of risk that the market covers, to make it come alive and to talk about the rewarding careers it can offer. We want to bust the “dull” myth to transform the views of young people, engaging with them in spaces and channels they relate to. Both events were sold out and were promoted through social influencers, TikTok and university advertising.”

“I want to particularly thank the young professionals who came with us and were such amazing ambassadors for the market.”
