Rewarding Careers

Recruiting, managing and retaining the very best people are top priorities for us

The support we give you in your time with us is designed to help you achieve your goals, through our career development and talent management framework. This provides you with the skills, knowledge and confidence that are essential to your on-going success.

We understand that direction is important. So we will provide you the tools, support and know-how to develop your career.

Your development is important to us. It contributes to an engaging and positive workplace provides opportunities to stretch and reward you, and helps deliver a differentiated service to our clients.

​Given the strong people-focus of our business, personal and professional development are naturally very important to us. We want our employees to develop during their time with us and we sit down with each one to identify their opportunities for growth, always challenging them to make sure they get the most from their Chaucer career.

We set objectives for each employee that link to Chaucer’s annual strategic goals. We then positively manage performance toward these, including on the job coaching and professional training as required.

We encourage employees to gain professional qualifications and are extremely proud of the succession of qualified underwriters, actuaries, accountants and marketers we’ve supported during the last 10 years.

If you perform to a consistently high level and achieve the goals we set, then you will make a valuable contribution to our success.

We recognise this and have structured our rewards packages accordingly. You will be rewarded for your individual and team performance in a way that motivates you to achieve your goals.

Our rewards include competitive salaries and a comprehensive benefits package including 25 days annual holiday and an additional day at Christmas, a competitive contributory pension, life assurance, BUPA, private health insurance, season ticket loan and an employee share save scheme.

We contribute to an annual rewards benchmarking survey in the Lloyd's market to ensure that our rewards remain competitive.

Our HR and Learning and Development Teams make sure we have the very best people working for us. They recruit some of most talented staff around and develop colleagues across the business to keep our standards high.
