Working at RSA

RSA is a people-centred, FTSE 100 company committed to keeping customers at the heart of everything we do.

What each of us does every day is what has the real potential to make this business great. Ultimately, people make the difference.

Steve Lewis RSA UK and Western Europe CEO

We’re always looking for people who share our passion to find ways to be better and we're committed to rewarding and recognising people appropriately for the work they do.

Here are just some of the ways we do that:

Learning and development

We’re committed to making sure that everyone who joins RSA has the opportunity to be successful. We do that by encouraging every employee to explore training that will develop the skills and knowledge they need to be proficient in their chosen role – be it through online courses (we have a huge library of e-learning resources), face-to-face training, mentoring or coaching. 

We also offer a wide range of development opportunities for people wanting to grow their career within RSA, covering technical skills, professional development and leadership. 

Having joined RSA on the global graduate scheme, career development has been encouraged from the start. I developed my negotiation and influencing skills and enhanced my personal network.

Investing in technology

We are continually simplifying processes and upgrading tools to make it easier to get thing done.

In 2015, RSA’s ‘Big Upgrade’ saw the global rollout of Sharepoint and Yammer to drive faster, easier working and greater collaboration between colleagues. It has successful brought our 17,000 employees together under one virtual roof, improving communication, strengthening connections between colleagues and enabling more flexible ways of working. 

Supporting local communities

We believe that the best way we can support local communities is through our people. As part of our corporate responsibility strategy, we are particularly interested in supporting community programmes that build confidence and skills that increase employability and champion the next generation of entrepreneurs. 

Everyone at RSA is encouraged to volunteer and fundraise for charities closest to their hearts. Employees can take up to two days volunteer leave every year which does not count as annual leave. We also offer matched funding for money that our employees raise. 

In 2014, our people raised £225,807 through their fundraising activities and donated 6,691 hours volunteering in local communities (during the working week). 

Never miss an opportunity
