A new business executive at Rossborough Insurance has completed the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Diploma in Insurance, a technical and supervisory qualification for insurance staff working across all sectors of the industry.
Steve Mendes, who works in the Private Clients team, achieved his Diploma through three years of study and nine individual exams. The course provides a firm grounding in insurance fundamentals and advanced technical knowledge, ensuring holders have the means to function effectively in a challenging environment. Mr Mendes had previously completed the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Certificate in Insurance, and can now use the designation Dip CII after his name.
Rob Hewlett, director of Rossborough, said: ‘All of us at Rossborough are immensely proud of Steve’s achievement. He has shown real commitment to personal learning and professional development, and we were pleased to be able to support him throughout his studies. We are very keen that our staff have the opportunity to progress their career with Rossborough whilst gaining key industry qualifications, and are delighted that Steve is showing how success looks.’
Mr Mendes added: ‘Each exam took at least 100 hours of study, so I had to make some big sacrifices outside of work hours. I have learnt such a lot that I am able to use in my everyday working life, for the benefit of my clients. I am really grateful for the brilliant support I have received from Rossborough and am proud to work for the only Chartered Insurance Brokers on the island.’
Rossborough is a local insurance broker, dedicated to providing island residents and businesses with tailored insurance solutions. The company was recently awarded Chartered Insurance Broker status, one of only 100 firms that have achieved this and the first in Jersey.
