A day in the life of a Supervisor in the United Kingdom

Insurance supervision at the Bank Of England

What I do

I work in Insurance Supervision at the Bank of England, engaging in prudential supervision of insurance firms in order to preserve their safety and soundness and protect policyholders. I'm also studying towards a Central Banking Qualification as part of the graduate programme.

What I like most

The work I do is interesting and varied, and I have a reasonable work-life balance. The grad programme is a lot of fun socially, as well as giving me a good network of people to call on across the Bank. BoE is generally a very supportive place to work, which is lovely.

How I looked for work

I went to Careers Fairs at York, looked on the Careers jobs portal, browsed various grad scheme websites, and liked a whole lot of public sector organisations on Facebook. Someone friendly from the Bank convinced me that it was the place to be at a Careers Fair.

How I found out about the job

Recruitment event

The recruitment process

The whole process is revamped for this year so I really can't help with questions about the recruitment process!

My career history

At the Bank, informal meetings and training sessions often start with introductions including everyone's career history. Mine is the shortest; I left York, went on various holidays for three months, and then started at the Bank. My only previous jobs were in catering, teaching abroad, and education support at the uni, so this is my first full-time job as well as my first in the industry.

Contacting me

Get in touch if you want to find out more about insurance, financial regulation, the Bank, or the public sector in general. Happy to answer any questions; or meet for a coffee if you make it down for an assessment centre!
