What’s it like to Work at Sabre?
“We’re all in one building so everyone knows everyone else – we’re one big team”
From the newest recruit to the CEO, you’ll find we’re all approachable and ready to help you settle in. We operate an “open door” policy because everyone is part of one big team and we believe effective collaboration and fast decision making have been instrumental in building the successful business we are today.
Wendy Bamping is Head of HR at Sabre and takes the responsibility of employee development and wellbeing seriously: “At Sabre we recognise the success of our business rests with our talented staff. It’s my job to look after our people and ensure that they are all happy, healthy and enjoying a fulfilling career. When we recruit a new employee, it’s really important to me that they settle in quickly to their team. I meet with them at the end of their first two weeks to find out how things are going and check that they are settling in well. I know every single person who works here and everyone knows that they can come and talk to me at any time if they have any questions. I know Sabre genuinely is a great place to work.”
Here’s what some of our employees have to say about working at Sabre:
Having completed my university degree I began employment as a Claims Negotiator for Sabre Insurance in the summer of 2010.
My Career began in the Technical Support Unit to achieve an understanding of how new claims were implemented from the outset. Shortly afterward I joined the busy and dynamic Claims Team, spending two years gaining essential knowledge in key areas from Liability to Recoveries.
In 2012 I undertook a six month secondment in the Counter-Fraud Department affording me the opportunity to explore the various techniques employed in capturing, investigating and ultimately defending fraudulent claims.
Returning to the Claims Team in early 2013 I developed a firm interest in complex issues surrounding indemnity, litigation and costs. Over the next year I would work with a number of experienced members of staff as well as external agents and solicitors to further my understanding of the Motor Claims environment.
Having recently become a Deputy Team Leader I enjoy the responsibility of assisting other team members whilst maintaining an active portfolio of my own claims and exploring larger losses.Rob Newland
Working at Sabre is invigorating. It is an absolute pleasure to be part of a company that invests time, training and trust in you.
I began my career at Sabre in January 2004. I started as a Claims Negotiator and then through the company’s recognition was placed into Counter-Fraud in which I had an opportunity to develop my skills further. I continued to progress and went on to be the Team Leader of the Counter-Fraud Department.
Due to Sabre’s commitment and training I have gained confidence in continuing to seek opportunities and develop my career. I have recently been appointed as the Claims Supply Chain Manager.
The company is incredibly successful and is continuing to expand. The environment is well balanced, it is professional but personal. I am very fortunate to be able to go to work and feel part of a valued team. Sabre continues to drive me as an individual; I am incredibly enthusiastic about my future and thoroughly enjoy my job.Daisy Thomas
I originally joined Sabre in 1983 as a Trainee Underwriting Clerk, since then I have had seven different job titles and have worked in three different departments.
As the company expanded so did the opportunities for Sabre Staff with new roles and departments popping up at the time.
One thing that has never changed though is the family feel in our office, the senior managers are friendly and approachable and we all help and support each other, its more like a second home!Jane Walker
