Tomorrow’s workforce enhance their employability skills at the Lloyd’s IntoWork conference
08 Aug 17

What better way for young aspiring professionals to enhance their skills than in a professional environment with real employers to provide feedback!

This was the case for some of our candidates on Friday 27th July, who took part in our annual IntoWork conference, held at Lloyd’s.

Funded by Lloyd’s Community Programme, the one-day event is designed to give 16-24 year olds an insight into a typical assessment centre and the professional skills needed for the world of work.

Throughout the day, students took part in a series of workshops centred on increasing the employability skills needed for working in the insurance and professional services sector.

We were lucky to have volunteers from across the Lloyd’s market join us on the day, who provided the students with personalised verbal and written feedback on their interview skills.

Towards the end of the day, the young people were given a chance to quiz the experts at an interactive Q&A session.
