Work with smart people
Let’s start with a common perception of insurance: that it’s dull; a career for men with university degrees, grey suits and the lifelong ambition to sell insurance policies; that you’ll go to lots of meetings and if you aren’t in one of those, you’ll be glued to a desk nine-to-five, all day. Every. Single. Day.
While we admit there can be a fair bit of desk time for many of us, that’s where the accuracy of this insurance stereotype ends. If we do have a type, it’s one that’s based on attitude: Hiscox people genuinely care for customers, for the business and for each other. To thrive here, you have to do the right thing no matter how hard it might feel at the time, and have the courage to challenge each other and the status quo. We work hard and are proudly high-achieving, and we care about what Hiscox stands for. While we all work in insurance now, we have arrived from many different walks of life and brought with us ideas and influences from far beyond the industry.
