Diversity is an essential part of VIG. Therefore, the participation in Austria’s first job fair with focus on diversity on October, 11 was a matter of honour for the VIG. A variety of fringe events during the job fair were along the lines of ‘gender’. We welcomed many interested visitors at our booth and were able to present the VIG as an open-minded company and attractive employer. The VIG HR team was representing the VIG at the job fair.
Organised by the Vienna University of Economics and Business' ZBP Career Centre on October, 19 the Career Calling gave over 5,000 visitors the opportunity to find out more about some of Austria’s leading companies. The VIG uses this event to reach out to young professionals, graduates and students. Applicants had the chance to talk to our recruitment team and representatives of our Controlling, Finance Actuarial Services departments. We were excited to have so many interesting encounters!
The next Career Calling in 2017 will take place at October, 19.
High Potential Day
To continue VIG's success story we are looking for people with entrepreneurial spirit and sense of responsibility who like to work in a dynamic, international field. The High Potential Day was hosted by the Austrian magazine Profil on June, 27th and offered an excellent opportunity to meet interesting personalities. The VIG acted again as the main sponsor for this exclusive recruiting event at Vienna city hall to present itself as an attractive employer to students and graduates. In the scope of the panel discussion titled "New Deal for High Potentials. Is the Educational Reform Coming?", Birgit Moosmann shared experiences from many years as head of VIG Human Resources. The "VIG Chocolate Bar" offered the opportunity to learn more about VIG beside the recruiting talks at the stand: employees of different VIG departments offered insights in their everyday work life, the company's culture and their career paths in informal talks.
Is an insurance an attractive workplace for lawyers?
...for sure! Possible work areas for lawyers in the VIG Holding are subsidiaries management, compliance, international labour law & executives and legal office. Most of the functions are international in their orientation and always exciting through the dynamic development of the Group. On March 18, 2015 the VIG visited the fair JUS SUCCESS and was looking forward to meet young talents with an affinity to the economic area CEE. Beside the recruiting team also lawyers of the VIG were in place to offer insights in their everyday work.
Once a year the ZBP Career Centre at the Vienna University of Economics and Business gives us the chance to meet students on an event with a more casual feel. On 23rd May 2016 we spoke face to face with students and told them more about career openings and development opportunities at the Vienna Insurance Group - a partner of the ZBP.
