Our service centre employees don't just develop cutting-edge software. Of course, they build insurance applications like claims processing, policy administration and risk evaluation. But it's how we do it that sets us apart.
A forward-looking shop
Our strong collaborative environment allows us to design and build innovative solutions. We partner with Microsoft, which allows us to research and beta test products early in the life cycle. You'll be entering a world of .NET framework, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and web services.
Highly integrated environment
Our Technical and Application architects use Business Process Modeling (BPM) tools and processes to link technologies and applications together for seamless throughput. We emphasize re-usability and a holistic architectural approach.
Emphasis on training
We recognize the importance of staying on top of the latest technologies and expanding your knowledge and skills. Rich, comprehensive online resources allow you to direct your own learning to improve your expertise and job performance.
We strongly support employees' pursuit of business expertise through insurance industry certifications and professional designations. More than 90% of Unum Ireland employees have attained formal insurance qualifications, and employees are encouraged to continue building their business knowledge.
Professional development is encouraged by providing financial assistance in the form of tuition reimbursement and paid study leave for certificate or degree programmes related to their current role.
Ongoing centralised training
We regularly invite U.S. subject matter experts to Ireland to deliver training programmes specifically tailored for our needs. Classroom-based training is organised when appropriate and attendance at external training programmes is encouraged.
We have a wealth of versatile communications tools aimed at Unum Ireland closely connected to the business.
- Regular forums encourage collaboration with international colleagues
