Looking to work for a company offering different modes of working?

QBE European Operations offers its employees many flexible ways of working. 

QBE European Operations Marketing Business Partner, Chiara Zaccariotto [pictured above] believes that flexibility can pave the way for innovation.

"My way of being brings me to alternate between intense moments of hyperactivity and multitasking that use 110 per cent of my mind, and moments when I need to disconnect, physically move, and be alone in silence," explains Chiara. 

"Thanks to QBE's extreme flexibility, I can work at my own pace and manage my abilities to the best. And I think that this attention to its people and their wellbeing with continued service and improvement is the best innovative choice a company can make. So thanks QBE."
