Catlin Group – Why Work For Us?


XL Catlin underwrites insurance and reinsurance for industrial, commercial and professional firms, insurance companies and other enterprises throughout the world. The combination of XL with Catlin brings together an incredible blend of people, products, services and technology to help your business move forward.

In the United States, our goal is to offer the highest level of service and underwriting expertise to brokers and clients for both admitted and non-admitted business.

Our underwriting and claims teams are local and accessible. With 15 offices across the country and two in Latin America, XL Catlin US is ready to underwrite your risks. 

Corporate Responsibility

Being a socially responsible company makes good business sense. Striving to achieve a balance between economic, social and environmental activity is in the long-term interests of our company and society. Our business depends on healthy, growing economies across the globe.

Both XL Group and Catlin have had a long-term commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, ranging from XL’s activities in volunteering and philanthropy through the XL Foundation to Catlin’s focus on building sustainable communities and high-profile environmental research. Both companies have invested in driving positive change socially and environmentally, and we will continue to do so as XL Catlin.



XL Catlin and its people aim to make meaningful contributions to the communities in which its offices are located. Our strategy is to support local projects through community involvement and to make charitable donations. 

The majority of our community projects are managed at a regional level to ensure that we connect with local charities and communities. 

Support criteria

Generally, we focus on initiatives that relate to youth, education and family although all worthy causes are considered. They should also:

  • be in line with our corporate values
  • build commitment and engagement through involvement in 'giving back' to local communities
  • provide learning and development opportunities
  • support recruitment.

We do not provide assistance to political organisations or religious or sectarian causes.

We have a Community Committee, which co-ordinates our charitable contributions and activities centrally, with members from across the Group globally.

We see our careers with XL Catlin as a chance to unleash our potential.

From insurance to reinsurance, a changing world needs new answers. We’re here to find them. With an incredible blend of people, products, services and technology, we have the power to find innovative, creative solutions to our clients’ risks — from the most familiar to the most complex. 

At XL Catlin, our Commitments reflect who we are. The way we think. The way we act. The kind of company we want to be. Every day.

    Catlin has some great people to work with who live by the Catlin values of transperency, integrity and teamwork. There is a good culture and it's a nice atmosphere to work in.
    The executives are accessible to staff and with an open floor plan culture, there is a sense of having a voice and being heard.
    They have invested in updating their offices as well - so it's a nice, modern clean environment.
    Also a very strong leadership team and executive team.


    Catlin is going through some major changes and whilst it is exciting, there is a risk what makes Catlin such a great place to work will be eroded by becoming a larger organization. I am hopeful it doesn't become too bureaucratic, with too many layers of management and they can retain what makes Catlin such a great place to work.

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Catlin Group.


    Not enough questions asked of interviewer. Topics bounced back and forth with too much discussion of past employees. Benefits were discussed in detail and were a selling point, especially since I was unhappy at my former place of work. Opportunity for growth was discussed, which was a positive.

    Little negotiation.
