Help us change insurance for good and be part of the Vitality success story
“Life at Vitality is fast-paced and always exciting. We look for people who have the ability to think and deliver great ideas that could have a positive impact on our business, within our communities, or on society as a whole.””
Mark Northover, Recruitment Manager.

Who we are

We’re an insurance company that’s shaking up more than just the insurance world. In August 2015, our parent company Discovery was named by Fortune magazine as one of the top 51 companies in their Change the World list. We were the only insurer to make the list, ahead of brands like IBM, Nike and Unilever.

That’s because our ambition isn’t simply to be the UK’s best health and protection insurer: it’s to be a force for social good, about having a real impact on society and making a positive difference in the world.

In the UK, we currently have two thriving businesses: Vitality Health, providing private medical insurance; and Vitality Life, offering a full range of protection products. A third business, Vitality Invest, offering investment products, is due to be launched in 2018. Finally, working out of our Richmond Hill office in Bournemouth are our appointed representatives Insure Your Health. As specialists in Private Medical Insurance they are able to advise and make a recommendation based on client needs, for more information and job opportunities, please visit Insure Your Health careers.

    Innovation and
    optimism

    We’re well known for our innovative products and this is rooted in a culture of creativity and exploration. We believe that it’s better to try and fail than to not to try at all and always wonder what might have happened if we’d only been braver.

    Business astuteness and prudence

    We do things differently but we also know that we need to balance this with the needs of the business and of our customers. We understand the risks and we make sound decisions based on this knowledge but we don’t get tied up in red tape.
