Zurich offers a range of insurance products and services, delivered through professional brokers and intermediaries, our workplace partners and directly to consumers. These help people protect their families, their possessions and their businesses.
With around 55,000 talented individuals working for us, across 170 countries, we have a wide variety of roles on offer. There are plenty of opportunities for our people to develop their skills, build their career and even gain industry-recognised qualifications.
Our sense of community is strong and we are particularly passionate about diversity and inclusion, which we have won numerous awards for. We want our people to bring the whole of themselves to work and everybody is made to feel welcome, regardless of their background, beliefs or culture.
On top of the competitive rewards and lifestyle benefits package we offer, we also have an environment that places a real importance on our people’s wellbeing from a physical, mental, social and financial perspective. We work with our wellbeing partners and industry experts to provide the best advice and access to a wealth of lifestyle support.
Our employee surveys show us that our people feel supported by both Zurich UK and their manager. Many also enjoy being able to work in a more flexible way, for example working part-time, having flexible hours or perhaps in a job share.
Our customers and our community
Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to playing our part by supporting those who need us. Our innovative experts are trained to identify vulnerable customers and we are there to take action quickly when they are facing difficult situations.
‘Zurich cares’ and has a charitable arm known as Zurich Community Trust (ZCT), which is supported by funds, time and talent donated by Zurich UK and our people. Through an inspiring range of grant-making, fundraising and volunteering programmes, we address a raft of social issues to bring about positive change to those facing tough times.
It’s something we’ve been doing since 1973, which makes us one of the longest-established corporate trusts in the UK. In that time, we’ve awarded grants and volunteered time to deserving causes in the UK valued at over £90 million.
Corporate responsibility and sustainability at Zurich
Creating a brighter, more sustainable future underpins all that we do here in Zurich. We were the first insurer to sign the ‘UN Business Ambition for 1.5˚C’ pledge, committing us to set science-based targets across everything we do and reduce our carbon emissions. We’re making positive progress, in fact the 2020 Dow Jones Sustainability Index ranked Zurich number one in the insurance sector.
We have been carbon neutral since the end of 2014 through our ambitious internal carbon emissions reduction efforts and by using forestry projects in Indonesia and Brazil to offset emissions that cannot be eliminated.
Zurich are one of the founding members of Social Enterprise UK’s ‘Buy Social’ corporate challenge, which commits 10 large UK companies from diverse industries to have spent £100m with social enterprise firms. We are helping create positive social, environmental and ethical outcomes simply by changing our buying behaviour.
Zurich is a great place to work and we’re always looking for talented and inspiring people to help us create a brighter future. Take the first step in loving what you do, developing your skills and making a difference in the world by applying today.
