About The Association of British Insurers

The Association of British Insurers is the voice of the UK’s world-leading insurance and long-term savings industry. A productive, inclusive and thriving sector, our industry is helping Britain thrive with 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 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.

We are Brave. We take Ownership. We are Appreciative. We are Human. We are Curious

We live by these values in our day to day working lives, however, we do this with a common understanding that we are individuals, and everyone will apply them differently.

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.

Being a team of under 100, everyone knows everyone and the moment you step out of the lift on your first day, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome.

If we sound like we’re your kind of people, take a look at the opportunities we have on offer.

Association of British Insurers Latest Reviews

  • Data & Analytics Assistant

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the ABI, at the beginning I did question how I would survive the transition the routine of the working world but this got a lot better as the placement went on. The staff at the ABI were all very friendly and there is always someone you can talk to or ask for help. The ABI wasn't just all work focused, our Sports and Social Committee regularly organised fun social events for the staff and our Health and Wellbeing team held staff events such as chocolate tasting and chair massages to keep us sane....

  • Member Relations Assistant

    I feel very fortunate to have started my career at the ABI. All my colleagues were very helpful and friendly and put my nerves at ease very early on. I have made great friends and connections throughout my time here and I hope to keep in touch with many of my colleagues after I leave. The professional opportunities I have been given and the skills I have learned match the social experiences I have had which, in my opinion, is exactly what I could have hoped for before I started!...
