CII seeks rising stars to tackle unmet needs


The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) is seeking rising stars to explore ways to increase public trust in the profession, innovate insurance products, plus update processes to ensure unmet needs are addressed.

The CII’s 2020 to 2021 New Generation Group will be made up of 40 promising professionals split into four groups - claims, underwriting, broking and the London Market.

Members of the four New Generation Groups will get to network with other rising stars from the profession, meet key Financial Conduct Authority personnel and members of parliament plus they will learn how to handle the media.

Each group will be asked to work together on a project they believe could make a difference to the insurance profession and the public they serve.

Recently the groups have produced a leaflet to help individuals whose homes and businesses have been battered by storms access cash to restore their property, produced good practice guidance identifying ways to increase public trust and made recommendations about how claims processes should change in order to meet consumer’s expectations.

To join the CII’s New Generation Group all applicants need to do is send in their CV plus a few lines about why they consider themselves to be a rising star in the profession. They will also need their line manager’s approval to take part in the talent programme’s activities.

The closing date for applications is 10 August 2021

Successful candidates must be willing to commit to attend the set development sessions and to dedicate time to the group project.

Keith Richards, Chief Membership Officer of the CII, said: “The CII’s New Generation programme always attracts individuals with fresh perspectives and insight into the way the profession currently works and how it can change to ensure it remains relevant to consumers.

The programme is a great opportunity for rising stars to acquire skills to help them climb to the top of the profession and improve the way it delivers for the public in the years to come.”

Craig Tracey MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Insurance and Financial Services, said: “The New Generation Group participants always impress me with their enthusiasm and knowledge of the market. This programme gives both the insurance profession and policymakers to engage on key issues facing society and the insurance sector. I look forward to hearing about their ideas for increasing trust in insurance.”
