We are excited to share with you our new film, which showcases Lloyd’s Community Programme (LCP) and how Lloyd’s and the market are helping our local communities.
Our volunteering programme aims to build the academic ability, employability and aspirations of the young people we work with; from primary school to helping young people get into work. This feeds into Lloyd’s talent priority, aiming to attract and retain a diverse workforce that will bring innovation to the insurance sector.
We have more than 2300 volunteers from over 60 companies across the Lloyd’s market who take part each year to help 5000+ people through Lloyd’s Community Programme. The benefits of volunteering are enormous; from increased job satisfaction, to developing new skills, building your network, improving well-being, as well as sharing skills to help each other.
Find out more about the programme and how our people at Lloyd’s and in the market are helping our local communities.
We have a range of programmes that colleagues in the market can get involved with:
- One-off workshops around insurance, financial literacy or employability.
- On-going mentoring or school partner programmes.
- Practical hands on team challenges.
See what some of our volunteers have said:
“You encourage people to come into the industry that you enjoy and love and are part of.” Frances Weber, Employability Workshop volunteer
“There are so many children and young adults in London that are so close to Lloyd’s and the whole financial industry. I think there are quite a few barriers to entering that. I believe programmes like this help to break down those barriers.” Scott Mason, Abacus volunteer
“I think it’s really important to give back. I think that because I’ve been a mentee before, I also know for this particular scheme, how useful it can be to open doors and also open minds.” Nelly Grelet, IntoWork Mentor volunteer
