Natalie Bate | Zurich Insurance

I started my career with Zurich in 2014 as part of the Graduate Development Programme after graduating from Cambridge in Modern and Medieval Languages. During the 18 month programme, I spent time with Glasgow Claims, Birmingham Product Underwriting, and Intermediary Services in the Life business. I finished the programme in July 2016 and joined the Leeds Claims management team.

At university, I studied French and Spanish (language and literature) and spent my third year in Spanish-speaking countries. I spent 4 months in Peru volunteering in local schools to support children’s education and a further 9 months working in Barcelona, firstly as a translation intern and secondly as the Personal / Strategic Assistant to the founder of a family law firm.
