India’s insurance sector is on upbeat due to the increased awareness. The sector has been creating more job opportunities to grow. “Sales, actuarial, customer service and underwriting are the hottest jobs in demand. Actuarial and underwriting are niche skills and the talent pool is limited. Since insurance companies have multiple channels of distribution, there are a number of opportunities in sales too, said human resources head of an insurance company. The rise of digital channel of distribution is giving space to explore unique opportunities in insurance sector. Business development skills are also in demand with companies trying new ways to increase insurance penetration.
