Direct Line Group is an ambitious company employing thousands of people throughout the UK. We’re proud to be one of Britain's leading general insurers, offering millions of customers decades of experience and knowledge. In the history of modern insurance, there has never been a bigger time for change than now and we work hard to make sure our well-known brands –Direct Line, Churchill, Privilege, NIG and Green Flag are making insurance easier and better value for our customers. We know we can’t do this without our brilliant people who we reward for ideas and thinking as well as results because that’s how we can achieve amazing things – for our customers and for each other.
The motor insurance market is changing. Therefore the way in which motor insurance will be priced in the future will change; this is why telematics is one of Direct Line Group’s top strategic priorities. Add to that the rapid development of new car technologies that will have a huge impact on risk, from automatic braking systems right through to auto-pilots, and it’s very clear that understanding the car is just as important as understanding the human who sits in it.
What we’re looking for
We are looking for a Pricing specialist with a hunger for knowledge and someone whom is keen to learn and understand new technologies. You don't need previous telematics experience, but definitely some insurance pricing skills and a genuine interest in Motor Pricing.
You’ll be motivated and driven, happy to work autonomously
You’ll have strong analytical skills
You’ll be a great communicator with strong relationship building skills
You’ll be improvement focused and excited by new technologies
Who you’ll be working with
Reporting into Daniel Brown, Pricing Manager, you will work alongside a team of telematics pricing professionals. You will also work wiht the rest of motor pricing, integrating our changes to their models, constantly looking to improve and better the output.
What you’ll be doing
With the motor industry changing rapidly, we are working hard to keep up. How do you insure a self driving car - and how much should it cost?
With an abundance of data from trackers in cars we need to understand how to analyse it and use it to deliver the best pricing model for our customers. If this sounds interesting to you then you might just be what we are looking for.
Your role in the transformation will be to deliver a comprehensive analytical pricing service for Direct Line Group focussing on telematics motor business and new vehicle technology. Our goal is to ensure Direct Line Group stays at the forefront of telematics pricing and achieves its ambition to become an industry leader in vehicle technology.
