The insurance industry has come a long way in breaking away from the stigma that the industry is “old and boring” and is instead an exciting industry full of career options. But despite growing interest from professionals to pursue insurance and risk management careers, the industry continues to struggle to fill open job positions when competing with more “attractive” industries, such as technology and entertainment.

However, one insurer recently started a new initiative to overcome recruitment challenges and “win” in their battle for talent by accessing a widely untapped pool of individuals. The Returner Programme at London-based Convex Insurance targets experienced talent prospects who have stepped back from their careers for an extended period of time and are now interested in returning to the workforce. Oftentimes, these are former stay-at-home parents or other individuals who, for their own reasons, took a break from their previous professions and now want to get back into the game.
