Working as an auditor for an insurance company, salary is mid 70s incl bonus, 10% pension contribution, phone, use of company car but dont pay BIK thankfully.
Started 10 years ago in a call centre earning €20k, did some exams, made the right moves at the right time and made some good connections. All going well in the next three years I'll have gained a compliance qualification and will have earned some niche experience so will be looking towards 6 figures hopefully.
I'd recommend insurance as a career tbh. You dont need any qualifications for entry level positions and if you have a bit of cop on you can get a qualification in a couple of years and move into an insurer. The amount of different avenues is huge, from sales to underwriting or compliance. A commercial underwriter with 4 or 5 years experience would be looking at €60k base upwards. If you have a flair for sales broking can be very lucrative.
