Management Jobs in South Africa

Hollard is South Africa’s largest independent and privately owned insurance group.  At Hollard we are passsionate about our core values and culture. As such, we eat, breathe and sleep our values of customer focus, delivery, integrity, using initiative, having a zest for life and living ubuntu (human dignity). It’s important to note though, that while we take our work seriously, we try not to take ourselves too seriously by always ensuring that there’s a healthy balance in our work environment. After all, recognising that people are individuals and treating everyone with respect is at the core of the Hollard DNA.

Hollardites are collectively insightful, innovative, entrepreneurial, passionate and conscientious – but we’re also about enjoying what we do, within an environment that encourages and rewards individuality, imagination and flair. This is vital to the success of a business such as ours which does not sell a physical product but endeavours to consistently deliver on our promises. We are essentially a business about people adding value to the lives of other people and being there when they need us most.

With these key principles as our driving force, we are determined to maintain our differentiation and know that this can only be achieved if we continue to invest in our most prized resource – our people.
