Cardif is a part of the French BNP Paribas Cardif. Their starry logo is well known to many thanks to their sponsorship of the most prestigious tennis tournaments. And their goals are stellar as well – to protect their clients in the case of sudden life-changing events such as loss of income due to loss of employment or long-term illness.
In the Czech Republic, the company has two branches – BNP Paribas Cardif Pojišťovna (insurance company) and BNP Paribas Cardif Services. The former branch cooperates primarily with banks that offer their products to the customers. Their chief discipline is the payment protection insurance, and they were one of the pioneers of this type of insurance in the Czech Republic.
The latter company branch is the knowledge center for the entire Central Europe. It comprises of IT, Marketing, HR, Finance, and several other departments. Its corporate culture is considerably more free-spirited, but everybody still makes up a crack team. The Services branch could be described as a corporate “start-up” founded in 2017 that has been growing like weeds ever since. Many natives and foreigners work here daily on international projects. All the apps are tailor-made by the programmers in Services and then sold to insurance companies.
The Services branch will suit all who don’t like strict rules and work by the book and prefer to use their common sense. Their dream candidate is one who is not discouraged by the rapidly changing environment but can adapt to it, and who is gifted with creativity and flawless English skills. On the other end, the insurance company branch will suit those looking for stability and clearly cut competences.
IT experts, whether Developers, Architects, and Security or Infrastructure Specialists, are particularly welcome. Besides the IT experts, Actuaries are also in high demand. They should be able to handle statistical data and be ready to communicate with the Legal Department frequently. Many attractive international projects await them.
Aside from cool teambuilding activities in the local marina, every newcomer can look forward to catering in Cafeteria in the amount of CZK 17,000 per year, a generous pension contribution, and, after the first year, a life insurance contribution. Job sharing, flexible working hours, and the possibility to work from home in case of need are naturally available as well. The company supports its employees in volunteering – everyone can take one day off per year to perform any socially responsible activities, and thus improve their karma. That counts!
