The mutual sector, which holds 55% of the car insurance market in France, announces no fewer than 12,000 hires this year. Good news for jobs, especially young people, in times of crisis.
12,260 new hires in 2021
The mutual insurance sector will hire new employees in 2021. At least this is the result of a survey by the Association of Mutual Insurers (AAM), which asked its stakeholders about their future employment intentions. The AAM ensures that all of its members (number 114, represent) 46 million members in France and abroad) responded well to this survey and are based on their staffing plans which they believe provide a very reliable figure.
And that reliable number is significant because it is no less than 12,260 job creation which are expected this year. Promises that should also affect all structures: “” […] All actors in the sector will actively recruit […] There are medium-sized and small structures among the insurers that will be discontinuing in 2021. One of them will take on 28 permanent contracts, which is 15% of his workforce. “”assures the AAM.
Where can you submit your resume?
Among the mutualists who are members of the AAM with whom you can submit a résumé in the coming months, we find in particular AG2R La Mondiale, AMF, Maif, Macif, Mae, Matmut, Mutuelle de Poitiers, Mutuelle Fraternelle d’Assurances, Thélem Assurances…
In detail, the majority of new insurance hires should be permanent. But about 2,000 will also have an apprenticeship contract, still according to the same survey, in line with the government’s intentions on youth employment. “The generation entering the labor market today is suffering from an extremely difficult context. We want to support them as a matter of priority.”said Thierry Martel, Chairman of AAM and CEO of Groupama.
How is the mutual sector getting out of the 2020 crisis?
However, these announcements can generate at least two comments. First, the number of hires in 2020 is not known, making it impossible to evaluate the mutual insurers’ efforts in terms of job openings this year.
Then it is difficult not to notice that this communication is happening at a time when insurers are particularly prominent. However, You must be fair to mutual insurance companies : Some of their organizations are among the insurers that have responded best to the time of the health crisis. Like Maif, Matmut, Mutuelle de Poitiers Assurances or even Mutuelle Fraternelle d’Assurances, all of which have among others announced the freeze on their car tariffs for this year as a token of solidarity with their policyholders.
In fact, it seems more likely that the insurance sector in general will suffer from an image deficit at the end of 2020. Indeed, this distrust has reached seldom reached levels. there he even won the political world. Last November, A forum signed by 45 MPs invited the insurers to attend “Participate in the War Effort”This means they haven’t done enough for their policyholders and for the revitalization of activities.
However, in response to this forum, we can read the words of Thierry Martel attached to the announcement of these settings: “Mutual insurers are committed to making the economy resilient and supporting activities in our country.”. In that case, this response is a welcome one as the support of insurers, especially mutuals, will continue to be of great value this year 2021.
Should you cancel for a mutual insurance company in 2021?
According to a recent investigation, the UFC-Que Choisir invited car policyholders terminate their contracts in favor of the most virtuous insurers on the marketnamely those who have chosen not to raise their prices despite the savings achieved, like the Maif and Matmut. So do not hesitate to compare the offers of these mutual insurers if your contribution increases this year.
