3,000 staff in Scotland
Aviva employs approx 3,000 staff in Scotland with two of our seven UK General Insurance Operational Centres of Excellence based in Perth and Bishopbriggs.
As the world’s sixth largest insurance group, Aviva provides over 53 million customers across 28 countries with insurance, savings and investment products. Our 45,000 employees are focused on providing customers with prosperity and peace of mind combining our strong life and general insurance businesses under a single, strong brand. This model provides us with reliable revenues from diverse sources, and helps us fund and grow our business more efficiently.
In 2010 we delivered a very strong result, with momentum building in profit and sales and improved customer service. We also made good progress in bringing our life and general insurance businesses closer together and were successful in significantly extending our distribution reach. We remain focused on improving efficiency and service across our UK operations as we grow, which will bring benefits to customers and shareholders.

Aviva promotes employee volunteering so our staff can engage with their communities to help good causes, as well as encouraging their personal development.

In addition, our employees gave £600,000 through fundraising and donating.
