We are similar in revenue and profit to Marks & Spencer, and larger than Heinz in revenue.

With customers in virtually every country in the world and 70% of its revenues now generated outside the UK, Bupa is a truly international organisation.

Our strategy has three pillars: Customers, People, Performance. It puts our customers front and centre in the context of today’s digital age. As a service organisation, everything we do for our customers relies on our people and partners, so being a place where people love to work is critical to our success. This, combined with disciplined risk and capital management, is how we will deliver strong and sustainable performance.

We are looking for individuals who share in our values and this strategy, and are capable of delivering outstanding results for the business.
