Because diversity and inclusion underpin everything we do, we are different in every way. Our open mindedness informs better, more transparent decision-making, makes us stronger and creates more opportunities for our 50,000 people working in 170 countries. It's also why we attract and retain the best talent.
Here in the UK, our 4,500 people work across 15 offices all focused on one thing: caring for our customers by helping them to protect the people, places and things they love.
Our strength is simple: we recognise and celebrate the individual.
So whether you join us as a graduate, an Intern or on an apprentice, within our Data & Analytics, Actuarial, Business Management, Finance and Change & Technology Management teams, you'll find that your development programme is tailored to help support and enable achievement of your personal professional potential.
From day one, all programmes offer career-building exposure to real jobs and real work and so the opportunity to have real business impact. You'll work at the heart of live projects, getting to know our people, our business and our customers, and you'll be equipped with the skills and knowledge you need to grow, develop and evolve our business.
Another difference is that we put quality over quantity, consciously keeping our Early Careers programmes small yet perfectly formed so that we can confidently guide your development. We've also put in place a comprehensive and robust buddying system so you get individual support when you need it. Previous grads tell us our programme compares favourably to those their friends undertake, with more development, more communication, better depth of experience and more varied opportunities.
Just as importantly, all of this is underpinned by a culture that is notable for being helpful and friendly, collaborative and more than a workplace. People here call it a community where everyone plays a part in enabling transparency, nurturing sustainability and giving back. Planting a tree for every policy we sell, working towards being 100% paperless and giving back via the Zurich Corporate Trust are just a few of the initiatives we champion individually and altogether.
