They will also work with a mentor to help them navigate through professional situations in their early development.

The insurance sector has changed significantly in recent years and insurers need to recruit people from the widest range of backgrounds possible. Chubb Academy will ensure we have the people and skills to continue to stay relevant both in terms of the clients we work with and our understanding of their risks."
