Member Relations Placement

The Member Relations team supports the Association of British Insurers (ABI) by offering important insight into its 250 members. Your role will be to keep abreast of member news and communicate what’s most important back to the ABI staff network. A key part of your job will also be to keep our Customer Relationship Management system (CRM) up to date.

Your manager will be the Assistant Director, Head of Member Relations, Partnerships and Events and they’ll help you gain real insight into working in the corporate world. You’ll be in the unique position of communicating with everyone at the ABI – from the Director General to the Assistant population – and you’ll be their prime point of contact for all things member related.

Please note this is a 12 month fixed term contract and is being offered as a sandwich placement starting in Summer 2019.

Your role:

  • Research ongoing developments and the latest news on ABI’s member firms and effectively communicate that information internally to ABI colleagues.
  • Research and provide high quality data analysis of opportunities in the insurance and related business markets.
  • Stay on top of member news and keep the ABI’s CRM database up to date.
  • Work in collaboration with colleagues at the ABI, in particular in Events, Finance and Directorate Support, to ensure accurate data is collected.
  • Help the Events team run member events – this could be anything from managing the registration desk to member liaison and relationship management.
  • Provide ad hoc research and analysis for briefings.

Where can this role take you?

With a supportive environment and the fantastic exposure you get to lots of people in the industry and the knowledge you’ll build on a range of regulatory and policy issues, the ABI is a great place to great place to set you up for your future career.

What training and benefits are offered?

On your first day we’ll take you through a full company induction. You’ll then have inductions to get you up to speed with anything from Events to how our finances work, plus one to ones with relevant colleagues. Everyone goes on the CII Introduction to Insurance course and will receive plenty of on the job training. We host various Staff Learning Events throughout the year and you will be able to attend relevant ABI and industry events.

Additional training will be driven by your own personal needs and ambitions and we have a range of courses as part of our Learning and Development offering.

We’re looking for:

It’s essential you’ve had some experience of producing research and analysis – either in your studies or at work – as you’ll help keep our member profiles up to date and accurate.

You’ll need to be inquisitive about the world around you. If you spot a problem, you’ll be the type of person that goes away and researches it and comes back with a few ideas on how to tackle the issue.

As you’ll be talking to the whole of the ABI and potentially taking care of members at events, a natural, confident communication style is a must.

Given we work with the UK insurance market, you’ll need to be curious about the industry and interested in building a career in a corporate environment.
