What We Do
Telesure Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd (TIH), is the holding company of some of South Africa’s leading financial service providers. Our portfolio includes short-term insurers, a long-term insurer, health insurance as well as an insurance and personal finance comparison platform.
Our origins go back to 1985, when Auto & General Insurance was launched to the South African market. We have since grown into a group of subsidiaries, each finding a better way to give their unique group of customers’ peace of mind. That’s why we exist - to continuously find better ways to give people peace of mind- whether it is to protect what they own, their loved ones or their greater ambitions and life plans they’re working so hard for.
TIH is owned by BHL (SA) Holdings Limited.
Some of our brands include auto & general, Dial Direct, 1st for Women, Budget Insurance, and Hippo, South Africa’s first insurance aggregator.
Why work for us
We are more than a financial services group. At TIH, we constantly strive to find better ways to give our customers and people, peace of mind. By joining TIH, know that we’ll value you as much as we value the thousands of South African lives we improve daily, and that’s just the beginning.
We know it’s our people who drive our success. They are the heart and soul of our business and the ones that make us unstoppable. We work hard to ensure that we have the right people from the start, and are uncompromising in a few of our requirements:
- We look for bright people who are good connectors, who listen and who deliver what and when they say they will.
- Energy, curiosity and having a can-do attitude is a must.
- So is accountability and having the ability to always find a better way.
- Our people value teamwork, but are also able to work independently.
- They must genuinely care for our customers and their team.
When we find these unstoppable people, we work very hard to keep them. A highly competitive salary and benefits package is just the start. Read on to find out what else is in store for our people including our Rewards and Recognition programmes, Development programmes and Health & Wellness initiatives.
Think you have what it takes to be part of an unstoppable team who constantly finds better ways to give peace of mind? A team that thrives on being unconventional and uncompromising, at a company that has been recognised as a top employer for a number of years in a row?
As a leading financial institution, ensuring that our people are prepared for the unexpected is a priority. That's why we provide cover including Life Insurance, Funeral Insurance, Medical Aid, discounted GAP cover and an Income Continuation policy. We also ensure that our people are prepared for their retirement by contributing to a Provident Fund. Our Friends in Need fund is another benefit. It provides financial assistance to our people facing challenging and difficult times.
Being unstoppable not only requires a healthy work-ethic, but a healthy mind and body too. Fancy a workout? Our Johannesburg and Durban offices have gyms featuring state-of-the-art-equipment. Our Johannesburg office also offers holistic health services including on-site doctors, nurses, a physiotherapist, an optometrist, a biokineticist and a massage therapist as well as a clinic offering counselling, family planning, chronic disease monitoring and vitamin B12 and flu shots. The salon at our Johannesburg office keeps our people's hair and nails in tip-top shape and the Dis- Chem Pharmacy in Johannesburg is the ultimate in convenience. Couple this with free fruit daily, a health bar, a canteen, a coffee shop, a running/walking track, a soccer pitch, a putt-putt green and giant chess board, and R&R in one of our on-site chill rooms will be just what the doctor ordered.
