We had a great day out yesterday at Sir John Lawes School in Harpenden talking to students in years 10, 11 and 12 from Sir John Lawes as well as students from Priory Academy, Robert Barclay Academy, Samuel Ryder Academy, Roundwood Park School and St George’s School.
It felt like there must have been close to 900 students passing through the main hall, some of which we were fortunate enough to talk to and were interested in considering a career in financial services. Jo Haigh one of our chartered financial planners supports the Chartered Insurance Institute in promoting careers and was able to offer some great guidance and documentation for the students to take away about apprenticeship schemes, study paths with the CII and the type of roles that are available outside of what Lyndhurst can offer in insurance, such as an Actuary, Loss Assessor or Cyber Analyst amongst others.
It was an incredibly well organised event and I was impressed by the way the students conducted themselves. Of the ones we spoke to, many were excited to work in a role that helps others which is what we do, helping our clients to make better financial decisions. Lyndhurst are happy to support the students in finding their career through work experience which we offer to local schools as much as possible.
We hope to be invited back next year and look forward to it.
