Allianz Insurance supports Defence Employer Recognition Scheme

Posted: 18 December 2020

 

Allianz joined the scheme in November 2020 and has pledged to uphold commitments including:

  • Striving to support the employment of Service spouses and partners
  • Seeking to support employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces
  • Seeking to support the employment of veterans young and old
  • Supporting Veterans Work UK

Additional unpaid leave for training, financial assistance and after care are also offered, and Allianz has started working with the Careers Transition Partnership holding online chats and virtual careers days for ex-Armed Forces candidates with transferable skillsets.

Jon Dye, CEO, Allianz Holdings commented: “We are always striving to be the most inclusive employer we can be. This public pledge demonstrates that we acknowledge and understand that those who have served in the armed forces should be supported and respected when transitioning back into civilian life. I’m pleased to say we already have over 60 Engineer Surveyors and Managers who have served before joining Allianz and I’m sure we’ll welcome many more.

We’ve made great additional strides since signing up and are looking to promote the programme across all business lines. By its nature the insurance industry needs people with a wide range of skills and we hope to promote the career opportunities available.”
