What Brit Insurance employees think

Mentions of

A very good company with a really good culture, excellent prospects and a close knit company feel

I think Brit's got the balance between in-person camaraderie and working from home focus that I want to do my work well. Within our policies I am also able to support my team with their work life needs as they don't have as many meetings as I do, so can easily do their work remotely.

A fantastic central London office location with flexible 50/50 home/office hybrid working.

An incredible culture with supportive colleagues and a really innovative approach with staff recognition embedded.

Brit has a great cuture and it is a really good place to work. There is a real sense of caring about staff and ensuring their wellbeing.

Fantastic environment - Rewarded for good performance. Ability for young parents to commit to both work and family!

I work in the office 2 days every other week but this is specifically agreed upon as part of the flexible working policy. Everyone by default can work a 2/3 day fortnightly schedule in the office.

My role allows me to be completely autonomous with my team as long as we meet overarching wider team goals.

Great people, who are leaders in their field. There are plenty of opportunities to learn and develop skills.

In comparison to other insurance companies that I have previously worked for, Brit has a wonderful culture and the environment to work here is much better than what I have encountered elsewhere.

Very flexible - if you're good at your job and produce the work you need to, you have lots of freedom

We are like a large 'small company'. Very friendly, lovely office environment, energised, forward thinking ESG and I&D support. I have been here for 20 years of my 34 year career and I still love the culture as much as the day I decided to join. It's lovely!

Brit is a young and vibrant company, with none of the hierarchy built into a lot of similar FS organisations

expectations are to be in office 50% of time, typically 2 days one week 3 the next

Brit takes a lot of interest in its employees, seeking to create policies and culture that support a diverse range of talent working flexibility to achieve our goals.

Brit has a great culture. It is collaborative and friendly. With extra flexibility at times when its needed and warranted. Senior management really recognise insurance in the London market is still very much a people business and want to look after Brit people.

- Working hours are flexible and I don't feel pressure to conform to set hours. As long as my work is completed my line manager is relaxed.

- Freedom to work from home is good but as a fairly new starter it has been hard to feel part of the Brit culture. I prefer to work in the office with the odd day at home.

- Benefits are very good here (ESOP, non-contributory pension etc). Lunch or assistance with travel to work is a benefit which would be good to adopt and may even encourage more people into the office!

Overall, Brit is a great place to work and would recommend it to anyone.

Even though i have only been working at Brit for the last 8 months, I have found it to be such a positive and welcoming experience . My colleagues have been extremely supportive and my work life balance is something i have never managed to achieve in any of my other roles.

So a big thank you for making this sole parent able to breathe at last....

Management seem to understand and recognize that there is no one size fits all solution. 2/3 days per week in the office, with manager's discretion around that, works well. There are employees where less (or more) days in the office are needed and the ability for managers to be flexible is very important. Similarly, managers and leadership are in the office more, but without creating an environment where we feel pressure to be in more. The focus is on getting the job done, within a good corporate culture (which we haven't lost), with a high level of collaboration both in person and on teams, within a great office environment, instead of focusing on the numbers of days people are in or out of the office. There is also much more flexibility around core hours (no hard 9-5) that has taken a lot of unnecessary stress out of work, commuting and managing home life.

A very friendly, collaborative/supportive team environment, where ideas are positively encouraged.

There is a flexible hybrid working culture of being in the office 1/2 of the time. This gives employees the flexibility to work out what is the best arrangement for them and their team. Everyone is trusted to get the work done and there is no bias or judgement around family/motherhood and how this may sometimes interfere with work.

There is a great, modern, forward looking culture at Brit in a comfortable prestigious office building.

Brit is a great place to work!

There's a good work/life balance that offers a positive hybrid working culture. Significant trust in managing your work load compliments the freedom of a hybrid working hours. I would recommend this benefit to anyone interested in working at Brit.
