Let's grow together – Learning and development
There are many reasons why Zurich is the right choice for you. But perhaps the most important is the opportunity you will have to grow and thrive in your career. Working with global, diverse and inclusive teams, you'll have the chance to develop valuable skills, explore your passions and make a positive impact beyond your role.
We offer both formal and informal programs which are customised to your individual needs to help you to reach your career goals. Our new interactive learning hub, My Development is available to support your ongoing professional development while working at Zurich. It hosts new learning activities and specialist technical academies covering a wide range of topics to help you learn skills relevant for your job today and into the future. We also have a range of formal training, self-paced training, mentoring, and on-the-job development to support your professional development.
Zurich also has an annual performance and development cycle, which includes four formal manager and employee conversations per year to guide your development and help you achieve your career aspirations.
We encourage you to pursue further education relevant to your responsibilities – it’s all part of supporting you in your professional development. We’ll give you days off to attend exams or other assessments and financial assistance for formal qualifications if the course is directly related to your role.
Our FlexWork@Zurich policy empowers you to work where, when and how you choose. You are encouraged to explore arrangements that best support your performance and job satisfaction whilst balancing the changing demands of professional and personal life.
Flexibility may include changes to location, work schedule or hours. Working remotely (such as from home), flexible hours, part-time hours and job-sharing arrangements are all ways we practice flexible working at Zurich.
You are also encouraged to use judgement on the best way to dress for the day you have ahead. It’s about trusting you to dress for what you’re doing and empowering you to decide what will help you perform at your best.
We’re on a journey to champion a greater understanding of mental health and wellbeing. MindFIT involves a range of initiatives to encourage you to better manage your mental health and support your colleagues. In addition, we offer wellbeing initiatives such as free flu vaccines and skin cancer checks to encourage you to lead a healthier lifestyle. Our health and wellbeing initiatives are designed around you – to support you and help you be at your best.
