What you’ll be doing

You’ll join us supporting the Actuarial Head of Underwriting and Deputy Chief Actuary in management of the actuarial team.

You’ll engage with all relevant stakeholders, including the Actuarial Analytics department and underwriters when updates or changes to pricing models are being performed and monitor relevant pricing metrics to determine whether a recalibration or update to pricing models are required.

A key part of the role will be to proactively drive through improved performance monitoring via communication of appropriate technical pricing updates, targeted performance presentations, and considering impact of quarterly reserving results. Whilst also ensuring robust challenge of the business plans for the division, undertaking, and ensuring analysis is appropriate and insightful to aid robust discussions with underwriters, with results requiring minimal changes following actuarial peer view and documenting the actuarial view of the plan.

We are a team of experts and with every new joiner bringing a fresh perspective, we are constantly adjusting and refining the way we work.
