Knowing Your Career Options

Bermuda is well known as being an insurance and reinsurance hub. With so many (re)insurance companies that operate here, most Bermudians are well aware of the conventional job opportunities available, including underwriters, actuaries and brokers. Less known are the nontraditional careers that are important in the management of an insurance company.


Whether you are a student trying to figure out your career path, or a more experienced worker looking for a career change, you should also consider that Bermuda, and more specifically, its insurance market, offers a wide variety of career options. These range from the analytic to the creative, from accounting to marketing.

At Argus for example, in addition to the hardworking, talented team devoted to providing customers with insurance cover, there are a number of other key departments that are essential to support the smooth and effective management of our business.

Human Resources

To run a people-centric organisation, it’s important to have a knowledgeable, personable and effective team managing its employees. Argus’ Human Resources (HR) department is dedicated to ensuring just that.

Of course, finding the right employees is a major role of the department. More than this however, it is responsible for keeping the current employees engaged and happy. This includes incorporating training and leadership development initiatives to ensure that the smart, ambitious people Argus has working at the company are able to grow their career and continue to learn and feel satisfied in their job.

In addition, HR is responsible for organisational development. Organizational development entails directing and facilitating the strategic alignment of employee engagement programs and tactical business initiatives in order to maximize workforce productivity in support of the vision, mission and values of the Argus Group. This involves the development of frameworks designed to effectively direct organizational change through:

  • employee communications/engagement
  • resource management
  • skills development
  • productivity improvement
  • continuous improvement and recognition


Marketing is also an important department at Argus. It is responsible for getting the word out about our brand, products and services.

Especially in the insurance world, making insurance easy to understand is an important goal. Whether it’s a company’s website or a brochure, the language needs to reflect the company’s culture, explain products and services in a clear and engaging fashion and help to differentiate it from other companies in its field.

Information Technology

As companies increase their digital presence, there is a need for innovative, savvy information technology (IT) professionals. At Argus, IT specialists ensure that customers can interact across platforms with the resources and services they need and that Argus employees know how to make use of the most up-to-date technology.

Think Outside the Box

These are just a few examples of the many different jobs that are available at Argus, outside of the traditional insurance roles. It is possible to find a job that fit your skills, whether you want to tap into your creativity or your writing, technical or people’s skills, there may be a job in insurance that’s right for you.
