Why join us?
Our business is dynamic and competitive so we look for employees who can demonstrate a strong commitment.
We want smart, forward-thinking people from all backgrounds and cultures. Those who can bring passion, imagination and wide-ranging experiences. We don't employ solely on the strength of degrees or diplomas. Just as important are qualities that extend beyond the classroom – like enthusiasm, ambition and creativity. We are not a faceless, stuffy insurance operation. Our people are there for our clients, helping them to keep moving. We have a wide range of employee benefits and believe in reward and recognition for our staff.
Great Range of Staff Benefits
At General & Medical, we recruit individuals with a positive "can do" attitude; people who are high performers, who grasp the opportunities that are offered to them with both hands and make the difference that the company needs to deliver its Mission Statement, Objectives and Values. In return for high performance, commitment and drive we want to reward our employees with good salaries and benefits to match. Benefits can include:
Highly Competitive Salaries
General & Medical aim to be an employer of choice and understand that to attract and retain the best employees it needs to offer competitive salaries. Salaries are reviewed on the anniversary of your start date each year and are based on both the company's performance and your performance and contribution during that year.
Great Annual Leave Benefit
An average of 23 days a year for most employees, increasing up to a maximum of 30 days with length of service within the company. In addition to this, Bank Holidays are also non-working days for our employees.
Free Multi-Trip Travel Cover
Our Travel Insurance gives you the peace of mind of medical benefits and repatriation from any country worldwide, wherever you may be. Cover is provided for an unlimited number of trips within any 12 month period. The policy covers the employee only however, provisions can be made for you to add your partner or family at a minimal cost to be deducted from your salary.
Employee Rewards Scheme
Monthly nominations and rewards in the form of vouchers to spend across a huge range of high street stores, online shops, restaurants, days out and more, to ensure everyone gets the reward and recognition they deserve.
Staff Suggestions Scheme
We like to encourage and reward employees who put forward their own excellent ideas to help or improve areas of the business or service for our customers. If an employee's idea is taken on board and implemented within the business, we love organising personalised days out or prizes as a treat for them to recognise their efforts and thank them for their interest in the continued development of the company.
Discounted IT Equipment
Using General & Medical's buying power the company has secured contracts with suppliers of IT equipment that can offer discounts on equipment and consumables at prices usually less than high street prices. General & Medical are therefore happy for you to take advantage of this and therefore you are able with prior consent from the HR Manager to order equipment for personal use and pay back the company through a reduction in your next salary.
Free Health Assistance
A range of cash benefits and a range of health services to help you and protect your wellbeing, such as a Personal Accident Cash Benefit, 24 Hour GP Advice Line, Telephone Counselling and more as described further down the page.
