“A place for people who care about influencing positive change”

 

What we do

The Association of British Insurers is the voice of the UK’s world-leading insurance and long-term savings industry. A productive and inclusive sector, our industry supports towns and cities across Britain in building back a balanced and innovative economy, employing over 300,000 individuals in high-skilled, lifelong careers, two-thirds of which are outside of London.

We develop policy solutions for challenges facing society where our industry has a role to play – think tackling the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit, to how to insure automated cars and giving the public more transparency around their pensions, to name just a few. As a forward-thinking organisation, we work with government, regulators and policymakers, both in the UK and internationally, to ensure the insurance and long term savings industry meets the needs of the public to the highest standard.

We are the leading trade association for driving positive policy and regulation change in the insurance and long term savings industry – benefiting both our 200 members and their UK customers.

What you do here will make a difference

You’ll impact the lives of the UK public. 

Insurance and long term savings affects us all in one way or another and is a hugely important part of the UK economy. By joining the ABI, you’ll help our members offer the best, fairest and most transparent products and information to UK customers. You’ll also do you bit to support a British success story as our sector is a world leader. We’ve been instrumental in setting up practical organisations to provide solutions for people and the industry such Flood Re which makes sure flood insurance is affordable and we’ve driven forward the concept of a Pensions Dashboard so that in future, people can see all their pension savings in one place. In 2020, we helped the UK insurance and long-term savings industry launch the Covid-19 Support Fund to help support some of the people hardest hit by the Covid-19 crisis.

You’ll make sure our members get the inside track. 

What’s unique about the ABI is the relationships we have with government departments, regulators, stakeholders and our members. In order to be effective, we have to be right there when news breaks – and make the impact of it on the insurance industry easily understood. In 2020, we had over 15,000 mentions in the press, did 148 broadcast interviews, had 120 mentions in parliamentary debates and increased our website traffic by over 70%.

You’ll help get the right people together. 

Members take part in numerous committees and working groups where they can discuss and contribute to shaping policy. We also host regular events for our members, government bodies and regulators. These cover everything from Brexit to Autonomous Vehicles to cyber security, as well as events supporting those new to the industry and in 2020, we welcomed over 4,000 delegates to 48 events. In 2017, we launched our Talent and Diversity network where we meet with members to share ideas around how we can best support diversity and inclusion in our industry and we reach out to colleagues just joining our sector with events targeting ambitious young professionals.

How we work

We’re a collaborative bunch and work in a fast paced, friendly, open plan office in the heart of the City (don’t get us started on how good our view is). We work hard but have lots of fun along the way – think cheering loudly at each other during sporting events, annual (and highly competitive) pétanque tournaments, crazy golf, quizzes, board game nights and our annual (and top secret) Christmas party. In 2018, we started an ABI choir and in 2019 launched a brand new programme of health and wellbeing activities. This changes year to year but chair massages, a staff book swap scheme and lunchtime mediation sessions are firm favourites.

2020 has meant we've spent much of our time working from home but we've kept our positive work culture going with plenty of virtual activites including step challenges, wellbeing events, quizzes, an escape room and much-welcome food hampers delivered to our doors.

Being a team of under 100, its easy to get to know your colleagues and the moment you step out of the lift (or dial in for your remote induction) on your first day, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome.
