Published: 7 December 2021

The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and Insurance Institute of Southampton (IIS) recently delivered a careers webinar for students on the MSc Risk & Finance and MSc Risk Management programmes at Southampton Business School.

The webinar was delivered by Vivine Cameron, the CII’s Education Partnership Manager, and a panel of experts that included Michael Howard, Insurance Coverage Partner at Wynterhill LLP, and John Lezemore, Partner at DWF LLP.


The session provided the students with a wealth of information about the CII, mentorship opportunities, and on how to start and develop a successful career in the insurance sector. The panel members drew on their extensive expertise to answer the student’s questions and they discussed topics that ranged from securing entry-level roles to traversing from a law background into an insurance claims role.

Dr Ian Dawson, the Director of the MSc Risk & Finance programme said, “This webinar provided a fantastic opportunity for our students to develop the breadth and depth of their knowledge about careers in the insurance industry. The students gained valuable advice and fascinating insights from the expert panel and they were able to ask the panel a wide range of questions relating to their future career aspirations. I’m sure that this webinar will prove to be highly beneficial to the career plans of all the students who attended”.
