UK Benefits

Our UK-based employees receive a competitive package of pay and benefits that reward their contributions to Arch’s success and support their wellbeing.

Finance & Protection

  • Critical Illness Insurance, including options for your partner, provides security and peace of mind in the form of a tax-free cash sum if you are diagnosed with a serious illness or undergo a major operation.
  • We also provide comprehensive Life Assurance cover for all our employees as well as income protection if you are unfortunate enough to have a long-term illness.
  • Arch offers a generous company pension scheme (contributing at least 10% of your basic salary) with further matching contributions to help you save for retirement.
  • Arch’s Employee Share Purchase Plan (ESPP) provides eligible employees the opportunity to share in Arch’s success by purchasing ACGL shares at a 15% discount, through payroll deductions during semi-annual offering periods.
  • We also operate a Save As You Earn Scheme as another way to purchase ACGL shares at a discount over a three-year period.

Health & Wellbeing

  • Private Medical Insurance for you and your family allows you to receive private treatment for a wide range of conditions. Arch pays the premium for you and all of your eligible dependents.
  • Dental, Eye Care and Health Cash plans help manage your and your family’s costs with regular, co-funded (by Arch) payments.
  • Arch also pays for you to have an annual Health Assessment giving you a detailed idea of your current state of health. You can also choose to co-fund enhanced assessments.

Leisure & Lifestyle

  • We provide leisure travel insurance, at Arch’s expense, giving peace of mind for you and your family whilst on holiday.
  • Cycle to Work and Gym Membership schemes make staying healthy more affordable. We offer subsidised rates to over 3,500 gyms across the UK and Arch covers 50% of the cost.
  • Retail Discounts and a Tech Scheme help you save money and stay up to date on the latest products.
  • Our Give as You Earn benefit allows you to give to the UK charities of your choice, directly from your pay, with Arch matching the first £1,000.
