About us

Employing great people for over 100 years

Welcome to NFU Mutual

We are a leading provider of general insurance and financial services. From our strong farming roots we’ve grown to become a UK-wide organisation, turning over £1billion annually. Yet success hasn’t gone to our heads. We’re proud to remain completely customer focused, down-to-earth and committed to the rural communities we’ve grown from.

Our ethos - of trust, respect and personal service - lies at the heart of all we do and has seen us build an enviable reputation for exceptional member loyalty. Though we’ve been in business for over 100 years, we have big ambitions for the future. And that’s why we’re looking for talented people to join our growing organisation. Talented people like you.

What we do

We’ve been supporting our customers, their families and the communities they live in for more than 100 years. But when seven farmers from the Midlands set out to attract new union members back in 1910, few of them would have predicted how successful they’d be.

Today, more than a century later, we continue to offer expert insurance advice to the farming community and remain an integral part of the British countryside. We’re now a leading name outside farming too. We offer an extensive range of personal and commercial covers with expertise to both our farming and non-farming customers.

Our mutuality

We’re owned and run for our 900,000 customers, and we work hard to protect their interests. From our 300 local offices offering personal service, to the tailored quotes that customers can’t get from price comparison sites, our customers’ needs are at the heart of everything we do. Always have been, always will be.

We believe in taking the time to find products which meet a customer’s individual needs, inspiring trust and building relations by exceeding expectations. It's a successful, time-tested formula which puts quality customer service over a quick sale every time.

Doing business responsibly

Acting with integrity and doing the right thing is central to who we are and the kind of business we want to be. Being responsible matters to us, to everyone here. Supporting our communities is central to who we are. We’re always trying to do our bit and improve things, whenever and wherever we can. Not just for our members, our customers, but for our neighbourhoods and for the environment. Because when we do, everyone benefits.

We take our social responsibilities seriously. We work closely with the police, farming unions and other partners to achieve our goals and make a positive difference. We also know that how our people feel at work, directly affects the service they provide – so valuing our people, providing training and ensuring their health and wellbeing are all part of being a responsible business.

Farm Safety Foundation

As a mutual insurer that has cared about the countryside, farmers and their families for over a century, NFU Mutual took the decision in 2014 to establish the Farm Safety Foundation, an independent charity to raise awareness of farm safety among the next generation of farmers, challenge and change their attitudes to risk-taking and reduce the number of life changing and life ending accidents that continue to give farming the poorest safety record of any occupation in the UK.

The Foundation or Yellow Wellies as many know them, work closely with partners in the industry to engage, educate and communicate strong and relatable farm safety messages. Over the past five years, their unique farm safety training has been developed and delivered to over 6,500 agriculture students in 41 different land-based colleges and colleges throughout the UK and to over 3,500 young farmers at 205 Young Farmers Clubs.

Through award-winning national campaigns such as Farm Safety Week and Mind Your Head, the Farm Safety Foundation is preserving and protecting the physical and mental wellbeing of the next generation of farmers, ensuring that those making their journey into agriculture are resilient and equipped with smart strategies and specific skills to live well and farm well.
