Talent & Diversity

Overview

We want to help the London Market to build a diverse, dynamic workforce, which offers a deep talent pool for the market to draw on.

The work being undertaken by this workstream aims to:

  • Build a better understanding of where the true skills shortages in the market lie, in which specific areas, in the medium, long and short term
  • Promote the London Market as a first class employment choice to new and existing talent pools – whoever they are and wherever they are from
  • Ensure that those who will be the market leaders of tomorrow are integrally involved in its future design

The focus is on developing a diverse workforce with the skills required to ensure the future success of the London Market.

Progress

2021

In May 2019 we published the Future of Skills in The London Market. In the last five years the London Market has taken steps to put in the place the foundations for a digital market, and there has been progress around adoption of e-placement and other important tools. Staff at every level in underwriting and broking businesses will be thinking about the impact of this on what they do every day.

The London Market Group wanted to facilitate a market wide debate about what that means for all of us. With the help of KPMG, practitioners across all sectors were engaged in thinking about where the London Market is now and where it needs to be in terms of skills. Of course, this is not just about technology, it is about collaboration, innovation, communication and risk partnering. The report highlights what can and should be done and makes some important suggests on how to take action.

Throughout 2021 The London Market Group will continue to focus on raising awareness of the insurance market as a career option and increase our reach to the emerging talent from all social and ethnic backgrounds. We aim to reinvent the London Insurance Market brand as an inclusive, competitive industry to have a successful career.
