It’s about being unique

We insure the unique and the interesting. And we search for the same when it comes to talented people.

Hiscox is full of smart, reliable human beings who look out for customers and each other. We believe in doing the right thing, making good and rebuilding when things go wrong. Everyone is encouraged to think creatively, challenge the status quo and look for solutions.

Scratch beneath the surface and you will find a business that is solid, but slightly contrary. We like to do things differently and constantly seek to evolve. We might have been around for a long time (our roots go back to 1901), but we are young in many ways, ambitious and going places.

Some people might say insurance is dull, but life at Hiscox is anything but.

More about HISCOX

Diversity and Inclusion

We want everyone who works here to be comfortable being themselves, take opportunities to thrive in their careers and fulfil their aspirations whatever their background or way they choose to live their lives.

We’ve always believed in having ‘the best person for the job’ at Hiscox. That hasn’t changed, but we are making huge efforts to truly level the playing field so that everyone has the chance to get on and grow with us. We’ve got lots of initiatives helping us do this, with examples including unconscious bias training for people managers and coaching and mentoring opportunities that help employees actively manage their careers.


At Hiscox, we stand with those calling for racial equality and justice. There is no place in our society for racism, injustice, hate or violence. We all have a role in creating a more compassionate and inclusive world, and at Hiscox we want to play our part. We have more to do, but we focus on promoting education, awareness, and understanding among our employees, and on providing a safe environment where all employees feel supported. You can find out more about the steps we are taking here. 

We are committed to contributing to the creation of a better world and we know we can do more. Our voices are critical, now more than ever, and we must come together to ensure our society guarantees everyone’s basic human rights. We stand with the black community in the fight for racial equality and justice, and we look forward to helping to bring about the social change that needs to happen.

Our people

We want to build teams that are as diverse as the customers we serve and create a vibrant work environment where all employees can thrive.

We’re proud to have been ranked 4th out of 50 companies in the 2020 Glassdoor Employee’s Choice Awards, a list of the Best Places to Work in the UK, according to employee reviews.

In our most recent employee survey, 94% of our employees said that they share our company values. We expect our people to behave in a way that reflects our values and to always do the right thing no matter how hard it might feel at the time. In return we offer competitive reward packages, training and guidance to build your career.

Our values

Our core values underpin a reputation we have earned for integrity and decent behaviour in everything we do, which we firmly believe is good for the morale of staff and for the results of the business.

Hiscox Values and Purpose 2019


Our approach 

An environment where everyone can thrive

Our approach is simple and borne from our company values – integrity, human, courage, ownership and connected. We have a solid framework to make good things happen (that’s the right policies and guidelines in place); we celebrate the many people and communities we have at Hiscox; and we nurture our talented employees.  We know that if everyone has the chance to thrive here, that Hiscox will thrive too.

A solid framework

Policies that guide inclusive behaviour

Our framework begins with our company values and includes our formal policies as well as our toolkits and guidance for employees.

At the heart of Hiscox is a set of values that reflect our culture and guide our behaviours. One of these values is ‘human’  - which is about being clear, fair and inclusive - and it underpins how we do things and how we communicate, whether that’s in our dealings with customers, for example,  or each other.

Connected community

Reflecting our people and our customers

Connected is another of our company values which is about working together to build an even better company. Community is a celebration of all the different ways we come together to do it.

One way we have raised the bar on inclusion is with the launch of our employee network programme. We now have 12 employee network chapters across the Group, each one run by employees for employees and sponsored by someone on the leadership team. Open to anyone who wants to join, our networks include LGBT+, Pan-African and WeMind, our mental health and well-being network. You can read about them all here.

Nurturing talent 

The best person for the job

Of course, we always want the best person for the job – and our focus is on attracting amazing talent and then giving them the opportunity to grow as we do.

D&I is embedded into our recruitment processes – from job descriptions offering flexible working options, to striving for diverse candidate slates. We are always open to new ideas and initiatives too – in 2019 we partnered with an early careers app that meant we could reach a wide and diverse demographic with our graduate vacancies.
