Learning & Development
At Liberty Specialty Markets, we believe that an ongoing commitment to learning and development is essential if we are to attract, retain and develop the talent we need to drive our business forward. We strongly encourage existing staff and new joiners to take every opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge. To that end:
- We run an induction programme for new staff which includes information on all the main areas of the business, and introduces the new employee to the key stakeholders and contacts relevant to their role.
- Financial and study leave support for staff wishing to take the Insurance Introductory tests as well as for those working towards CII professional qualifications. Support is not limited to staff studying insurance topics and we support employees studying for actuarial qualifications, ACCA, degrees and other forms of higher education.
- Staff also have access to a series of management development courses as and when they become relevant to an individual’s role.
- All staff have access to Specialty Skills, an online portal which contains a vast wealth of insurance related training material as well as IT, regulatory and soft skills training.
- Training and development plans are discussed and agreed at the beginning of each year with all members of staff and reviewed at least half yearly.
