Hiscox, a FTSE 250 company domiciled in Bermuda since 2006, is a leading specialist insurer with a diverse portfolio of personal and commercial risks. With 100 years of underwriting heritage, we now have more than 1,300 staff, with offices in 11 countries. In 2011, the Group controlled a gross premium income of £1,449.2 million. The year was dominated by natural catastrophes, such as earthquakes, tornadoes, floods and hurricanes making it one of the most expensive years on record for the insurance industry. The fact that we made a small profit was a good demonstration of the strength of the Hiscox Group.
As a market leader in our chosen areas of business, we cover risks that range from marine, terrorism, aerospace, technology, media and professional indemnity through to high value personal insurance, such as homes and contents, fine art, bloodstock and kidnap and ransom.
We are not a mass producer of insurance policies but focus on key areas of expertise and strength. We specialise in protecting people with unusual and often complicated insurance needs.
By insuring risks other companies find too complex or unusual, tailoring policies to fit individual need and concentrating on profitable business, ‘where brains make a difference’ to each transaction, we’ll continue to build on our success.
Our vow is to provide extraordinary cover and service for our customers. We can only do this by employing the best people, and giving them every opportunity to fulfil their potential through learning and development. We are very proud of the talent and expertise of our people, and we know that our continued success depends entirely on how well we nurture and develop it. We have therefore created a unique, world-class programme to support each and every employee in their personal and professional development – quite simply, learning and development for extraordinary people.
We offer a small number of high quality intern and graduate placements every year, and the competition is stiff. If you’re bright and you’re keen, we’d like to hear from you.
