The thing that stands out to me the most about working with Aviva is the people. There's always someone to lend a hand and someone to answer any questions I may have.

00:00:37 Mark Monahan

So, one of my favourite things about working in the Galway office is the people and the atmosphere is just so positive and outgoing.

00:00:48 Patrick Donnellan

I’m based in our Galway office. The team I report to sits in our Dublin office. I avail of our smart working approach. So, I blend my time between each of the locations and from home as well which is great.

As the management are so helpful and supportive, which I know that first-hand, and they're always there to help you further your career progression.

It's the people, everyone's so approachable and helpful. If you put the work in and work hard, you can really start to build a career for yourself in Aviva.

00:01:11 John Sheppard

One of the benefits of working for a very kind of progressive, forward thinking modern employer is that I'm actually just back from 18 weeks paternity leave. It's such an amazing opportunity to spend four months at home with your new-born. I tell my friends about it and they can't believe it. It's one of those things that makes you really proud to be a part of Aviva.

00:01:35 Aisling Kennedy

My supervisor my mentor and my team leader also promote a work life balance, since I only work four days a week, they ensure that my workload isn't too much and that I can get time to do my college work as well.

00:01:47 Patrick Donnellan

I'd have to say I’m a real advocate for Aviva. I really believe in its values, and it's somewhere I can definitely see myself working for the next five to 10 years easily.

Sinead Cunningham

Claims Assurance Consultant

I have worked in Aviva for 16 years. I found what I needed here, and I’ve never had to venture elsewhere for opportunities to expand or develop my career.  I have worked in various roles since joining Aviva, mostly in the Claims function, but I have also worked as a people leader in sales for some time, before circling back to claims where I now work as a Claims Assurance Consultant.

The opportunity to rotate between different roles and business units has allowed me to learn, develop my skillset, expand my network, and progress my career, never getting bored or losing focus. Being a people leader allowed me to pass on that knowledge before moving on to my next adventure. My current role provides quality assurance and oversight to the Claims function to facilitate improvements in technical competence, customer service, cost management and regulatory compliance. The exposure to this work will allow me to build on my experience and continue learning.

One of the best things about Aviva are the people. There is an amazing support network that I can always rely on. I interact with fewer people in my current role than what I am used to, so being able to hybrid work allows me to stay in touch with colleagues and friends when I pop into the office, but also gives me those days of quiet time at home that I often need. The flexibility to make my own choice of how I hybrid work is something I truly value.
