MAPFRE Assistance, the Galway-based insurance company, has grown impressively in recent years and continues to attract candidates who are interested in beginning a career in the insurance industry.
The company, with more than 100 staff in its city centre office, provides a diverse line of products including travel insurance, car breakdown assistance, home emergency assistance, vehicle warranty, and contact centre services. MAPFRE works with Ireland’s leading insurance companies, car manufacturers, brokers, motor dealers, and utility companies, along with selling travel insurance directly to the customer through its InsureandGo brand.
With a reputation for world-class net promoter scores to uphold, MAPFRE’s training programme is unrivalled and places candidates in a strong position for a long-term career in insurance. To help gain Insurance Institute accreditation, an incentivisation system is in place for taking and passing the exams, with leave granted for study. Employees are also supported in gaining further education in the industry.
MAPFRE’s diverse product lines and multinational nature means that candidates can expect a solid grounding in several areas of the industry, building an awareness of the overall business and the position of the Irish unit in the global framework. In addition, there are many examples of career progression from entry level (with no previous experience in the insurance industry ) to management level.
The city centre location provides a distinct advantage to the company in attracting candidates who are studying part-time in college, as the office is a short bus journey away from local colleges in Galway.
And for people looking for a career change, MAPFRE is an ideal option, offering hybrid working, a strong work-life balance, an opportunity to upskill, and a clear path of progression.
More and more, candidates are choosing MAPFRE to kick-start their career in insurance, and benefiting from the training, support, close team cohesion, and positive environment that comes with a fast-growing company dedicated to world-class customer service.
MAPFRE is currently seeking candidates for customer service advisors, travel insurance claims handlers, and team leaders. For more information email [email protected].
