    If you want it, go out and get it

    There are two schools of thought when it comes to meeting your learning and development needs at work. You can wait to be told by a manager that you need to go on a course then wait again to be sent on one or, alternatively, you can work out what you think you need to improve yourself.

    Working 9 to 5 – the only way to make a livin’ at Hiscox?

    We have a flexible working policy and we want people to use it. It’s not a list of rules and regulations; more a set of guidelines for individuals and managers so they have the freedom to look at flexible working patterns and what might work best for individuals, teams and Hiscox more generally.
