EDUCATION - THE PASSPORT TO SUCCESS
A new series of articles from the Insurance Institute of Ireland, now available on the CareersPortal website, profiles insurance professionals who began their careers in Ireland but who have gone on to secure exciting opportunities all over the world.
In addition to highlighting the roles insurance qualifications play in career development, these pieces also shine a light on the global network of insurance contacts available for members of the Irish market to plug into.
Chief Operating Officer Sinead Browne talks about how she got started in the sector, her work as an underwriter, how her qualifications helped in her move to Allianz HQ in Munich and the professional differences between working in Ireland and Germany.
Travelling and living abroad can be a hugely valuable experience both personally and professionally. A number of our younger members seeking adventure in Australia, often contact us wondering how to transition from the Irish insurance industry to the Australian one. John Harnett, a loss adjuster at OSG, talks about his experiences and how his CDIP L.A. opened doors ‘Down Under’.
