Gallagher is a global insurance, risk management and consulting company that was founded in a basement office in Chicago by Arthur. J. Gallagher 90 years ago. Since then, it has grown to be an international group of people that work in the risk management sector with an entrepreneurial spirit! From some of the largest construction projects in the world to small businesses – Gallagher works with clients to source tailored insurance cover and risk solutions that meet their individual needs.

Gallagher creates and upholds an exciting culture based on strong values, community, collaboration, and professional excellence. If you are interested in finding out more about this truly global company, then join us for this work experience event with Gallagher.

You'll get the chance to speak to Gallagher employees and ask them questions about their roles and what it's like to work there. This is an amazing opportunity to imbed yourself in the company, particularly if you're thinking of applying for one of their positions starting in September (See Uptree opportunities for more detail on these and how to apply).
