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.
What we’re looking for
We are always looking for ways to enhance and improve our pricing and our Motor New Initiatives team is passionate about delivering change at a fast rate to ensure we are delivering a product that represents value for customers whilst minimising our risk.
This is in many ways an autonomous role where you will be responsible for your own projects and your own time management. If you enjoy working with people from different teams and you are a strong relationship builder this will be a great role for you.
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
Who you’ll be working with
Your line manager will be Aidan Casey, Motor New Initiatives Pricing Manager and additionally you will be working across different projects, delivering key pricing changes, ensuring project timelines are met and partners are engaged throughout.
Where you may not have an extensive team working with you every day you will interact and collaborate with multiple diverse teams across motor pricing as you take on new projects. You will be a central point of contact to motor new initiatives and you will have great opportunity to build business relationships at all levels.
What you’ll be doing
The new pricing capabilities will need to be imbedded into the wider pricing and underwriting teams and you will be key in this transition. This will take some time but also a strong sense of method, dedication and patience as well as a good measure of testing.
We want you to strive to improve the logic of the pricing algorithms, ensuring it is relevant for business needs, new developments match to our strategic direction and redundant logic challenged for removal - regardless of the size of the project.
You will be breathing and living change, always looking for the better option or the more accurate model, so this needs to be a passion of yours. We have excellent benefits available for our employees who can deliver significant improvements to our business - if you have an idea, we promise to listen!
What we’ll give you
We have a strong focus on developing you and your skillset and work hard to give you the tools to do so. In addition to this we also offer a generous benefits package including family and work life balance focused options such as: fully paid maternity leave and parental leave, flexible working, insurance savings for you and your family as well as a range of other optional benefits. Here are just a few of the highlights:
