The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) has launched a website promoting the career opportunities in insurance for women.

Aimed specifically at women looking to return to work after a career break, the site includes details of opportunities available, salary expectations and advice and tips.

The website also serves as a gateway to the CII careers hub which hosts a variety of current vacancies. The CII will be promoting the site over the coming months as part of a campaign to encourage women to consider a career in insurance and risk.

David Ross, director of communications at the CII, said the initiative is part of the CII’s broader strategy to encourage diversity in the insurance sector.


Ross said: "We have successfully promoted ourselves and the profession to young adults for a number of years, specifically through our work with apprentices and the Discover Risk initiative. We are now looking to widen the net and target specific groups whose skills and experiences could be crucial to the future of the profession and public confidence."
