Greg Binnie recently undertook a summer internship with Broker Insights, between his 3rd and 4th year at Heriot-Watt University where he is studying International Business.
Following his placement, Greg has provided an overview of his experience, what he has learnt about the world of commercial insurance, and the lessons he will take back into his final year and future career:
Before starting my summer internship at Broker Insights, my knowledge concerning the world of commercial insurance was so limited that I didn’t even know what a broker was or did. My only encounter with insurance generally came through the use of comparison websites when looking to insure my car.
It has also made apparent the importance of clear communication and teamwork in making a workplace function effectively. Throughout my internship I have been encouraged to not be afraid about asking questions as everyone is here to support one another. This is a sentiment echoed throughout Broker Insights, and I found that it was indeed true as people genuinely tried to help me wherever they could. I aim to carry this sentiment with me as I leave Broker Insights into my final year of University and my future career.Back to Blog
