First Central Overview

Forget everything you know about working in insurance. We're different. Yes, we’re insurance experts and some of us really love data. Give us some insights, models and small print and we’re happy. That’s OK. Data drives our business but our real power comes from us, the people. ...
Mission: Our mission? We enrich every experience with data ingenuity. What does that mean? Every day, our data nerdiness comes up trumps; we get the insights we need to give the right cover to the right customers at the right price. Fair and simple. It’s just what we do and we’re great ...

So much excitement around last week's DATAfest conference for our curious First Central colleagues. Hosting 120 people, with over 20 interactive presentations, it's been a really rewarding event to bring to life. The Data and Analytics team have really brought their 'A' game...we really do love data. #FCGDataFest #LoveWhereYouWork #FirstCentral

First Central

First Central boosts its community connections! Life’s all about connections isn’t it? We nurture relationships at First Central, caring for colleagues and customers. And communities? Of course! Our Community Connection’s turbocharged this year… We make sure we fit right into the communities around us. We play a part; always have and always will. We're passionate about helping out wherever we can, giving our time, our pennies and our ideas for the benefit of others. We support the charities each of our four offices chooses and push hard to reach the stiff fundraising targets we set ourselves every year (so far we’ve always smashed them…) Community Connection’s a big part of these efforts and in 2023 it’s worth more. Much more. Every summer we give colleagues a chance to propose local initiatives or charities they’d love us to look after. Whether it’s much-needed financial help or the gift of time, we ask people to put forward their best, most persuasive case. The top applications are presented to a panel of judges who decide who’ll receive a donation and its amount. Competition’s fierce and, though we’d contribute to every deserving cause if we could, the pot’s not unlimited. The great news is though, to celebrate First Central’s 15th birthday we’ve upped the amount on offer to £15,000 this year so we can help more people. In the past successful colleagues have won funds for schools’ projects, young persons’ and domestic violence charities, horticultural programmes an

    There is an impressive internal culture at First Central which although it's a very fast-paced business, there's still a relaxed, non-hierarchical vibe. The salaries are fair and there a good range of benefits for all colleagues. Flexible and hybrid working was a huge selling point for me as I didn't want to feel forced into an office 5 days a week and First Central is a truly flexible and hybrid working company - they don't just claim to be as so many others do!


    I quite honestly can't think of a con
