What are the Benefits?

We provide a comprehensive benefits package. Some terms and conditions may vary slightly between locations, but the following are standard

Flexible Benefits
Our benefits scheme allows employees to have a choice in the benefits they receive. Everybody has the opportunity to select different benefits depending on their circumstances. For example, there are options to increase or decrease annual leave, enhance pension arrangements, buy Life Assurance, medical, dental or travel insurance, childcare or retail vouchers. We also have a scheme for employees to purchase company shares.

Affinity Benefits
We provide employees with a wide choice of savings on every day purchases as well as holidays, weekend breaks and other leisure activities. Also included are preferential rates for personal insurance on products such as motor, home and pets.

Flexible Working
While our working patterns are driven by the needs of our external and internal customers, we aim to accommodate your personal commitments, circumstances and life choices outside work as well. We already have many examples of employees using one of several flexible working models, including varying start and finish times, the number of hours or days worked, or the work location. All arrangements would need to be agreed between you and your line manager and would need to support both your individual interests and the business objectives. See more about flexible working here

Salaries
Salaries are related to role and performance and are usually reviewed annually, on 1st May.

Bonus Schemes
We operate different bonus schemes and a bonus is paid annually depending upon individual and Company performance.

Pension Scheme
The Company operates a non-contributory Money Purchase Staff Pension Scheme. If you choose to make additional contributions, then subject to certain limits, we will match those contributions.

Employee Share Ownership Plan
The share ownership plan enables you to buy shares in our parent company Allianz SE on a special basis allowing you to participate in the shareholding of the Allianz group.

Allianz UK is now proud to be an official partner of the ParalympicGB team and the British Paralympic Association.

These partnerships signal Allianz's commitment to inclusivity across both its customers and employees and a recognition that Paralympic sport inspires us to create a better world for disabled people.
