LV= GI Careers / What we can offer
Freedom, flexibility and a whole lot more
During the first lockdown, I wanted to help my colleagues out. I used my van to deliver office equipment to their home so they could get up and running as quickly as possible.

Be your best self
Whether you’ve cracked your five-year plan already or have no idea what’s next, at LV= GI you’ll have every opportunity to explore your options and pursue your passions. And of course, you’ll be supported every step of the way.
Leading the way
Behind every brilliant team is a great leader or two. And vice versa. Inspirational, passionate and curious, our leaders are true champions of change and pioneers of progress. Our leaders don’t rest on their laurels. They’re change-makers. Go-getters. Curious types who drive us to build on what we do well. And improve what we know we can do better with a try, test and learn approach.
So naturally, we invest a lot into empowering them to be truly innovative in their approach. In fact, we’ve recently launched our Best Loved Leaders development programme. It’s an amazing opportunity for those selected to work towards a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management from the Chartered Institute of Management.
Recognising great work
Our people work hard. So we want to make sure they feel appreciated and valued at every turn. That’s why we encourage them to recognise and reward each other’s contributions through our MyRecognition platform.
From impeccable customer service to helping a colleague in need, when someone goes above and beyond to make a difference, we celebrate it. And for those truly stand-out moments of greatness, there’s the LV= GI Star Awards – a ceremony to showcase the incredible efforts of nominees from across the business.
We recognise that there is a huge demand for permanent roles that offer flexible working options. This gives employees flexibility on where, when and how they’d like to work their hours, across all genders, ages and for a broad range of reasons.
At LV= GI many of our people benefit from fixed and non-fixed flexible working patterns, which helps support working parents, those who are carers or those transitioning back into the workplace. Others may choose to work flexible for wellbeing and work life balance.
Volunteering at LV= GI
We love getting out, doing good and lending a hand to our local communities. That’s why everyone who works here gets up to 20 hours a year to spend volunteering. From helping out at the local animal shelter to raising money for a cause close to your heart, or supporting our company charity partner, Family Action. How you choose to spend your volunteering hours is completely up to you.
Our people and their stories
I feel like I've only scratched the surface of my career at LV= GI. Now I've completed my apprenticeship, there are so many new things to try and lots more opportunities to expand my knowledge.
We’re committed to building a really strong leadership team where our people fully trust and believe in us. So they feel much more inspired to be open, honest, and engaged as well.
Traditional Data Science teams can be very siloed; but at LV= GI we've got a collaborative working model. Our people pull together - within the team and across the wider business too.
