At ARAG, we all want to spend our days in a great workplace.

 
 

We take our work seriously because its important and that’s why we’re here. But we try not to take ourselves too seriously, so our working environment is relaxed, friendly and collaborative.

We're also committed to supporting the development and personal growth of our people, from Chartered Insurance Institute study sessions to support towards qualifications from the Institute of Leadership we're happy we can provide tools and assistance that you need to reach your goals.

We’re also a social bunch and like to make the most of the great city on our doorstep. So, whether it’s an informal bite at lunchtime, a themed activity week or a drink after work or one of our regular staff events, there is always something in the diary to look forward to.

Here are some examples that should give you an idea of why we think working at ARAG is a lot more fun than your typical 9 to 5:

 

Staff Socials

We try to get the whole team out for an (entirely optional) evening at least four times a year. Whether it’s some fun and friendly games on the Downs in the summer, wine-tasting, treasure-hunting or even cocktail-making, there is plenty of opportunity to get to know your colleagues outside of work.

The ARAG Charity Team

Life at ARAG is pretty good, but we do like to think about those who may not be quite so lucky. It’s the job of the ARAG Charity Team to come up with fun ways for us to raise funds for our chosen charity of the year.

Here are some of the events that staff have taken part in to raise money for our various charity of the year organisations.

International Day Celebrations

We’re a diverse team that typically includes people of at least a dozen different nationalities, and we like to celebrate that. Our regular, internationally-themed days are a bit of fun, but also give us all the opportunity to learn a little bit about the many different countries our colleagues are from.

Quarterly updates from the MD

There is little more demotivating than sitting at your desk without a clue about how your company is doing, what plans there are for the future or what part you play in it all. That’s why Tony, our MD, still takes the time to invite everyone in the company to a short presentation, every 3 months, to let us all know about our successes, the challenges and what lies ahead.
