Roseanna Cunningham MSP visited the Aviva offices at Pitheavlis in Perth recently. During the visit she was shown round Aviva’s new Property Claims Centre and heard about the company’s strong flexible working policies.

Speaking following her visit, Ms Cunningham said:

“As ever, I had a really interesting and informative visit with senior staff at Aviva’s offices in Pitheavlis.  The company is a major employer in Perth and a really important part of the Perthshire economy and so it is important to me to keep informed on all developments within their organisation.

“We discussed the handling of flooding claims, which is obviously an important issue for many local customers.  It was useful to learn about the growth of partnerships and the establishment of the new property claims centre of excellence.

“But the big news is that Aviva is hiring. They are currently actively trying to recruit part-time workers for weekend days or for evening shifts through the week with opportunities thereafter to move on to full-time jobs and access the career structure that is available in an organisation of this size.

“Anyone starting with Aviva will also be able to benefit from the strong flexible working policies that I was delighted to learn are being developed, including the recently announced joint parental leave initiative.

“This sort of policy is good for families, it is good for the company and it helps to tackle one of the big contributors to the gender pay gap in the corporate world – the idea that it is only women who should take breaks in their careers to look after children.

“Well done to Aviva in taking a lead role on progressive employment practices and I hope that the positive news regarding employment at Pitheavlis will continue.”
