Two independent surveys have confirmed Allianz’s position as the employer of choice in the general insurance sector.
The Guardian newspaper 2015/16 survey of 44,000 students sees Allianz improving its position by 32 places, making it the highest ranked insurer.
Allianz also takes the number two spot in The Job Crowd’s league table of Top Accountancy and Insurance Companies (larger intake category).
Allianz also retains a place in the top 100 of The Job Crowd's Top Companies to Work For, scoring particularly well (4.5 out of 5) for training programmes.
Anthony Takyi, Allianz’s graduate manager commented:
“These surveys confirm that Allianz is a great place to work. We strive to attract and retain the best talent with a company ethos that values our people and celebrates their achievements. We invest in learning and development opportunities and 80% of graduates stay with us once their courses have finished. It’s great to see that our schemes are being recognised and appreciated publically by the very people they benefit.”
Notes to Editors
1) The Guardian’s rankings are based on the largest independent survey of students in the UK. Over 44,000 student votes from 120 universities make this the most representative student poll ever.
2) The Job Crowd figures are drawn from thousands of reviews submitted to TheJobCrowd website across the year by graduate employees at several hundred graduate employers. This means that the companies listed are those that graduate employees say are the best companies to work for, not just those who might be the best known.
3) Allianz Insurance is one of the largest general insurers in the UK and part of the Allianz SE Group, the largest property and casualty insurer worldwide.
Around 85 million private and corporate customers rely on Allianz's knowledge, global reach, capital strength and solidity to help them make the most of financial opportunities and to avoid and safeguard themselves against risks. In 2014, over 147,000 employees in more than 70 countries achieved total revenues of approximately 122.3bn euros.
