Who are we looking for?

Our values as a team are core to everything that we do:

Be happy to help: We all need help from time to time. Sometimes we don’t know it. We make it a point to look out for each other. Caring for each other and being helpful to one another is the foundation of our culture.

Take pride in your work: Our future is fuelled by experiences made with passion and creativity. Passion inspires, motivates and makes magic happen. Big or small changes, they are all worth it.

Push boundaries: We don’t want to recreate the ordinary, we are here to rethink the future. Why are we building this product? Why do we need this service? Amazing experiences start by challenging the status quo.

Think freely, act quickly: We’ve cut the red tape to stop things holding you back. You can never be too young, too old or too new to have a say. You have autonomy.

Take responsibility and trust yourself and trust your team. Mistakes will happen, but with everyone we share together, we grow stronger.

We are a home to people with big smiles and small egos. Be kind, be humble, be supportive and professional – always!

At M&G Prudential we work hard to create an environment that enables everyone to flourish and we actively encourage diversity across the business.
