Our FlexWork@Zurich policy and practice empowers you to work where, when and how you choose. You are encouraged to explore arrangements that best support your performance and job satisfaction, and balance the changing demands of professional and personal life. Flexibility within Zurich can be formal or informal in nature and may include changes to location, work schedule or hours. Working remotely (such as from home), flexible hours, part-time hours and job sharing arrangements are all ways we practice flexible working at Zurich.
We’re on a journey to champion greater understanding of mental health and wellbeing, including within our business. MindFIT involves a range of initiatives to encourage you to better manage your mental health and support your colleagues. In addition, wellbeing initiatives such as free flu vaccines, skin cancer checks and fruit boxes encourage you to lead a healthier lifestyle. Our health and wellbeing initiatives are designed around you – to support you and help you be at your best.
At Zurich you’re part of a team that makes a difference to the community. Our key objectives are to positively impact local communities, employee engagement, and to establish long-term programs that also support local business objectives.
Through our global charitable foundation, the Z Zurich Foundation, grants can be applied to support community and environment programs – we are currently supporting several initiatives in Australia, including our hero programs, the Raise Foundation and Beyond Empathy.
You can get involved by volunteering your time, become a mentor for the Raise Foundation, raise money through fundraising events or donate through payroll giving.

We strive to ensure you are the best you can be – both inside and outside of work. Our employee benefits cover a range of financial, lifestyle, health and wellbeing programs. Examples include discounts on life insurance, travel, automotive, technology and healthcare services. We also have a fantastic employee referral program.
