After graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Finance from Macquarie university, I started my career in the Marsh Graduate Program. This program has provided me with the opportunity to work with various teams including service broking, placement broking and business development, and as such perform a diverse range of tasks for a wide clientele. This has enabled me to build a strong fundamental knowledge and skill base, which is integral to my future success in the insurance industry. I consider Marsh to be a great place to work because of its people focused culture. This has been translated in the social events I have attended, my work life balance and focus on personal growth and career development. The Marsh environment encourages employees to succeed and grow together, with active investment of time and resources from senior employees in the juniors they supervise. My advice to any graduate transitioning into full-time work is to take on all opportunities that come your way with a positive and inquisitive mindset, as this will only broaden your knowledge and expand your potential career direction.
