Howden Broking is the largest insurance broker headquartered outside of the US. At 25 years young, we are still independent and are proud of our enterprising spirit. 

At Howden, we have worked hard to create a culture that is welcoming and approachable. We hire people with the talent to succeed and the potential to grow - and we help them do just that. Howden is a global business with an entrepreneurial mindset, and we want our staff to be bold, take risks, and have fun.

People First

It's self-explanatory: we put our people first. In everything we do. They are our most important asset, and in return, we help them reach their full potential.

Empowered at every level

We value independent thinkers, with the creativity to improve the status quo and the bravery to take the initiative. No-one at Howden is just a cog in a wheel.

Celebrating our differences

There is no cookie-cutter Howden 'type'. We celebrate different perspectives and experiences, and strive to make a workplace that's supportive for all.

Want to work with us?

We’re always on the lookout for great people to join our team.  If you want to work for a company that puts people first, challenges the status quo and help us create something great then we’d love to hear from you! Send your expression of interest to Scott Fielding via email [email protected].

Respect

Bring your whole self to work

We are committed to making Howden the best workplace it can be. 

When you work at Howden we want you to bring all of yourself to work, and we promise to do our best to support you in every way. Our diverse experiences and perspectives make us stronger, and we are committed to increasing and supporting all forms of diversity.

In early 2019 we launched our Respect programme to support a diverse, inclusive and respectful culture in all our workplaces. 

Through Respect we are working with colleagues, industry experts, and external representatives. We are focussing on the areas that matter to employees, including mental health, gender balance, ethnicity and behaviours at work.

Meet our people

Howden is an insurance brokerage, but we're not all insurance brokers. Howden Care provides highly specialised injury and illness prevention and management solutions that deliver real cultural, financial and health benefits to our clients.

Howden is always looking for those people who go the extra mile for their clients.

Giving back

We have a significant opportunity to make a positive impact, both through the good that insurance can do and by being an active part of the communities in which we live and work. And we are taking that opportunity. We give back through the Howden Group Foundation, volunteering, and employee fundraising. Our activities are built around three main pillars of Education, Entrepreneurship and Environment which link closely to our business ethos and strategy.
