"We look for people with an entrepreneurial spirit who want to be empowered at work and take ownership for their decisions."

The 2.6 Challenge
Over the past few weeks team Beazley has put in the virtual miles, potted plants, putted golf balls, and played solo ping pong for charity.
"We want Beazley to be a place where you can truly be you"
Attracting diverse talent, building multi-disciplinary teams and creating an inclusive culture and that is true to our values is how we build success now and for the future.
Inclusion & Diversity
At Beazley we firmly believe that having an inclusive and diverse workplace will support us in our ambitions to outperform the markets in our chosen areas of business.
Our values are Professional, Integrity, Effective and Dynamic. They inspire the way we work from how we engage with our stakeholders and colleagues to how we design our workspaces, treat our customers and behave as a responsible business - to name a few.
Corporate social responsibility
We’re passionate about being a responsible business, and a key part of that is minimising our environmental impact in the places in which we operate. We’re focused on making our offices efficient, working with suppliers to make our procurement sustainable and engaging our people to help achieve our goals.
"Work the way that works for you"
The decision to accept a new career challenge hinges on many factors and at Beazley we want to try and make that choice a little easier. In addition to your salary or hourly rate, we offer a generous package of benefits. Your overall package will take into account different local employment laws and practices, and we try to make them fair and attractive wherever in the world you work. Our benefits include:
- medical insurance
- fitness reimbursement
- commuter benefits
- free lunch
- retirement plan/pension contributions
- life assurance
- sabbatical leave
- Beazley shares and share savings plan
We know that the small things also matter. For example, we have fresh fruit available in every office for everyone to enjoy.
Ways of working
Our people also benefit from our flexible ways of working - whether that’s in one of our offices designed for ‘activity based working’, the (lack of) formal dresscode or where and when we choose to work.
Activity based working (ABW) is about how people interact in our physical spaces. How we engage with colleagues and clients. How we seek and share knowledge. A number of our offices have been designed specifically for ABW working. These locations provide a variety of settings to accommodate the different activities and the optimal conditions for doing them.
We also have other ways of working at Beazley:
- Where you work - working all day inside the office is not always the most productive way to do business, especially globally. That’s why we allow flexibility so you can work where suits you. We view flexibility as a two-way relationship, looking at what works for individuals but also for the business to remain successful. For example there may be times when you are needed to come into the office, attend events face to face or travel etc. Teams are empowered and trusted to do this in a way that works for their clients, team and the business.
- When you work – we trust you to flex your time each day to deliver excellence to your stakeholders, support our culture of collaboration as well as giving you more ownership of your day.
- Dress for the day – you’re in control of what you wear to work based on your day ahead.
Simply, our approach to flexibility is designed to give you choices about how, when and where you work. After all, we want to make sure you enjoy your day and are empowered to do the best job you can.

Do you offer internships?
Since 2007 Beazley has taken part in the City of London Business Traineeship programme funded by a charity called The Brokerage. The programme forges links between companies within the City of London and talented individuals from the surrounding boroughs who would not necessarily have access to jobs in the city.
As part of the programme, we offer paid internship placements during the summer lasting around ten weeks, giving students access to the corporate environment, an insight into the insurance world and the opportunity to learn vital business skills. This is a partnership that works really well, not only for the students but also for us, as we have seen interns from the programme, return as employees.
In 2015 we expanded this globally and now have hosted interns in our San Francisco, New York and Farmington offices.
“Lloyd’s has supported The Brokerage CityLink summer placement programme for many years, providing opportunities and jobs for bright, young Londoners from inner city boroughs. Beazley has also got on-board and since 2007 have built the number of paid summer internships it offers for talented local sixth form students to eight in 2015. They have consciously collaborated with other syndicates – willingly sharing their ideas, resources and experience. I am delighted that they are one of the companies in the Lloyd’s market helping to bring in new and diverse talent to the industry.” Inga Beale, Chief Executive, Lloyd’s
