For Students

What is ‘Insurance’?

Insurance is known as the ‘hidden gem’ of the financial services industry.
It has less red tape and more autonomy than its more well-known siblings in the financial field.

It’s an industry that most people ‘fall’ into and rare for them to leave.
You won’t have a job for life, but you’ll have an industry for life that keeps you excited, motivated and wanting more.


How would you like to spend your work day?
A long client lunch? Hiding in the background playing with micros, macros and pivot tables? Visiting a site to assess risks?
No matter what you’re looking for, there is a perfect job waiting for you. 

Insurance is Everywhere… the world relies on it.

What is Blake Oliver Connect?

Blake Oliver Connect, in conjunction with ANZIIF and InsurTech Australia, are hosting a networking luncheon targeted at students to bridge the gap between university and a career.

Sit down with CEOs and Hiring Managers from industry leading companies and learn about the viable and exciting career opportunities in the insurance industry.

This event could lead to a job in broking, underwriting, insurtech, reinsurance, claims and risk management.

This all-expenses paid opportunity is your chance to meet future employers in the insurance industry and will allow you to learn more about the sector in a formal setting alongside other students.

There’ll be 12 different tables, each hosted by a different organisation. Each table will have 3 key people from the company (CEO, HR Representative & Rising Star). You’ll be paired with a table looking for graduates with your field of study. Throughout the luncheon you’ll learn about the company, the positions they have available and have the opportunity to ask questions to senior and leading people in their business.

It is kind of like a networking event, but way better. There’s nothing like this where you’ll be paired with an organisation looking for your skills.
