Unum UK: Global footprint, Dorking heart

Unum UK has been a proud Dorking local business for more than 50 years. We’ve loved being able to call the historic Milton Court our ‘home’ since moving in back in 1965.

Today, Unum UK’s operations have grown to more than 700 people and we still feel very much part of the community in our Dorking headquarters.

We’re proud to continually support local charity partners in our community including most recently the Woodlands School in Leatherhead, a place for children with special educational needs to learn and grow.

Although rooted in Dorking heritage, we’re also part of something much bigger.

Not only are we one of the UK’s leading employee benefits providers offering employees important access to Income Protection, Critical Illness Insurance, Life Insurance, Dental Cover and workplace wellbeing support— we’re also part of the global Unum Group with over 10,000 employees across the USA, UK and Poland.

Our long-time commitment to Dorking coupled with our wider international footprint enables us to nurture our employees, providing numerous opportunities and support for people to grow their careers with us. We’re proud that many of our team have been with us for decades and continue to feel part of the Unum family.

We’re a company that’s growing and has an exciting future, which is why we’re so pleased to announce multiple new career opportunities in our Claims, Customer Service, Finance, Actuarial and IT departments across our Dorking and Basingstoke offices.
