With a management team of unrivalled pedigree, this innovative 'digital disrupter’ is set to revolutionise the market with its unique approach to insurance distribution.

Its board comprises some of the biggest names in Tech, serial entrepreneurs, and the brightest 'rising stars’ of the industry. With a string of IPOs to their name, each boasts significant experience of the latest technologies to bring about wholesale changes across a variety of industry sectors.

Having already made significant personal investment and secured an initial round of funding from longstanding Venture Capitalists, the board is fully committed to making this a success. Having already been approached by household names within insurance seeking to make an early acquisition, they are extremely confident of making a large-scale IPO in the coming years.

This is a newly-created position, and given the entrepreneurial nature of this start up, you can expect to be granted a great deal of autonomy in widening the scope of the role to really 'make it your own’.

Reporting directly to the CEO, you will be responsible for the creation, sourcing and supply of all relevant insurance products and services. You will be a seasoned influencer, adept at negotiating new and existing insurance products and services, whilst ensuring all products meet FCA standards and guidelines. You will drive growth through product, scheme and rate development, as well as effective pricing and marketing, and you will work closely with capacity providers to ensure that they satisfy product strategy. Throughout, you will build close working relationships with external partners, attend industry events, and make extensive use of your own network.

You must possess relevant insurance experience at a senior level, including exposure to pricing, marketing, distribution and product development. You will also have an interest and understanding of how technology can disrupt the insurance industry. As expected, you must display strong stakeholder management skills, sound business acumen and a good understanding of the UK insurance distribution landscape.

A terrific opportunity to work in a fun team environment, in a company culture driven by pioneer-thinking and talent that exceeds departments and hierarchies.

You will be rewarded with an attractive basic salary ranging from £75K - £85K (negotiable), and the opportunity to participate in company Stock Options.
