Culture & Careers


The Lockton difference

As the world’s largest privately held, independent insurance broker, Lockton’s 7,500 professionals are free from shareholder demands. Our only focus is to provide our 52,000 clients – businesses like yours and individuals like you – with the best in risk management, insurance, employee benefits consulting, and retirement services.

To do this, we attract people who:

  • are bright and naturally driven, with a thirst for intellectual challenge
  • share our desire to remain independent, empowered advocates
  • thrive in our ‘Start Up’ culture

We call it ‘broking done differently’.

Clients tell us they like our approach to service: we listen to their objectives, understand their needs, and come up with innovative ideas and solutions to solve their problems – no matter how complex.

It’s why we also attract some of the best professionals to come and work with us – excited by a unique culture that values respect, an ethical, moral and caring approach, and empowers our employees to put you and your business first.
