What you'll be doing
We work in teams of multi-disciplinary people, and you may end up spending the day with Engineers, Marketing and Customer specialists working together to improve either part of a customer journey, a pricing model, an underwriting principle, or perhaps join other P&U specialists on a project like FCA Pricing Practices.
What’s always in focus regardless of the mission you are set, is improvement and looking for innovative solutions. We want you to utilise your technical specialism to help us reach the best outcomes and think tactically, strategically as well as creatively!
Who we’re looking for?

Who you'll be working with
We work cross functionally within a team or “squad” as we call them with lots of different people with different specialist skills. One of these individuals will be assigned the role of product owner and will ensure that as a team you are prioritising and delivering on time. You’ll have a chapter lead (people manager) whom you build a relationship with and who supports your personal development. You’ll also meet within Commercial P&U in off-site events or in smaller focus groups where you'll be sharing knowledge and ideas, thoughts, and ways of working.
