We put people’s lives back together.” A career in insurance gives you an opportunity to combine all of the best aspects of business, ranging from sales and marketing to finance and accounting, in to one career while working in a fast-paced environment where no two days are the same.   Gallagher is also known for its unique culture and without it, we are just another company. The key tenants of this culture were captured in a one-page document, The Gallagher Way, written in 1984 by our former Chairman and CEO, Robert E. Gallagher. Shared values at Gallagher form the foundation of the company and our culture. As a multi-national, multi-billion dollar insurance brokerage and risk management services firm, our employees are fueled by teamwork, creativity, responsiveness and doing the right thing simply because it’s the right thing.  In addition, Gallagher was the only insurance brokerage company recognized as one of 2020’s World’s Most Ethical companies by Ethisphere which is the ninth consecutive year we have been honored to receive this distinction.

It’s about personality and whether we think you would enjoy the industry.  As insurance is a relationship business, we encourage you to reach out to PC alumni currently working at Gallagher to learn more about the business and their experiences.  In addition, when preparing to submit your resume, think about the story it tells ranging from academics and work experience to extracurricular involvement and interests.
