Development Programme Application

The Insurance Institute of Manchester is offering you the chance to join a programme to help you develop your career.

We are looking for people who are enthusiastic about their jobs and keen to develop both themselves and our industry. Over 6 months from March 2022, successful applicants will attend 6 workshops, the dates will be announced in advance and each will last up to 2 hours.

The aim of this programme is to provide useful and effective workshops which covers a range of current topics from communicating effectively in a virtual world through to practical time management. It will also help develop key soft skills such as self-brand and social media as well as managing change.

The training sessions will develop attendees as individuals and also benefit the company they work for, at no cost to the company.
