Eames are currently assisting in the search for a COO / Underwriting Operations Manager role which would be a "number 2" hire role to one of the owners of the business. The experience required will be varied but most importantly it will require knowledge of Underwriting Operations and Actuarial/Claims procedures. The successful applicant will need to be a self-motivated and entrepreneurial person who has an Operational background within an Insurance company/MGA/InsurTech business. The role will need to be office based to foster a team spirit and common sense of purpose and therefore people who are looking to split the time over the week with 3 days in an office and 2 days working from home will not be considered. The successful candidate must be within a commutable distance of Windsor. At present, all back office functions such as compliance, are currently outsourced and the company have a BD/Sales Manager. The team in Berkshire is a small tight knit unit comprising of 4-5 staff and finding the right personality to fit in to the current team will be of high importance.
As well as a competitive basic salary and bonus, the role will include a EMI share scheme as the owners are successful business people who have already built ventures which have been sold for large profits. It is hoped that anyone joining the company will share in the success of growing a business to critical mass before a potential sale.
Only candidates who have Insurance experience and an Operational background within Underwriting, Actuarial & Claims functions will be considered.
Eames Consulting is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
