Helping Your Career

Helping You In Your Career

Being part of our families means starting as you mean to go on.

We are looking for talented and unique people and the first time we hear of them is when they apply for jobs with us.

Tips for a successful application

A good application can certainly help tip the scales when it comes to assessing different candidates. It will enable you to stand out and make your mark before we’ve even met you.

Just as a good application can open doors, a mediocre one can slam them shut. Presentation, clarity and integrity can make all the difference. So, help yourself help your own career.

When you apply be sure that your CV is up-to-date and the best that it can be. We also encourage a well-crafted and convincing letter of motivation. Both can easily be uploaded on our recruitment tool.

Our tips for a CV that speaks and shines:   

  1. Keep it short, clear and to the point  
  2. Make it look good. A clean layout and visual appeal is a sign of professionalism 
  3. Most recent work experiences should come first  
  4. Include the most relevant facts 
  5. Be accurate 
  6. Be truthful 
  7. Adapt it to the employer and the job you are applying for

Personal Growth

Personal growth and professional development often go hand in hand, and at Allianz Global Assistance we recognize how one can be vital to the other. We invest in our employees’ training and development and encourage them, when they are ready or feel the time is right, to pursue individual goals or ambitions that will contribute to their sense of personal and professional well being. And we always reward our employees for a job well done.

Since we respect their individual needs and differences and recognise that each employee’s well being is a very personal matter, we adapt our development approach to their individual situations. A one-size-fits-all model simply has no place in our organisation. We follow a 70-20-10 rule. This means the 70% of skill development comes through experience, 20% exposure and 10% education. We draw on a range of tools, training sessions and other means to ensure personal and professional growth. These include: 

  • On-the-job actions: specific projects, international assignments, job swaps… 
  • People: Coaching sessions, mentoring programs, exposure to regional and global leaders, role models, learning from peers, 360 degree feedback (allowing employees to receive feedback from managers, peers and customers but also allowing employees to feedback themselves). 
  • Technical training: risk underwriting, marketing, sales, finance, IT... 
  • Soft skills training: communication, leadership, change-management, and diversity…
