Job Description

We are looking for a Head of External Reporting

Who are we?

Ki is the biggest global insurance tech company you’ve never heard of, unless you’ve been looking to insure a satellite, wind farm or music festival recently.
We launched in 2021 on the back of a fundraise that delivered $500m of investment, making us one the largest fintech start-ups that year. Our investors were excited about the fact we were revolutionising the way a 333 year-old industry was working. We have rapidly scaled: In our first year we wrote over $400m of premium and in 2022 we doubled that to $834m. We have developed Ki over the course of the past 2 years and created a platform that helps insurance brokers cover risks in a fast and frictionless way. We’re continuing to lead the charge on the digitisation of this market and that’s where you come in - we need more curious minds to work with us to realise this goal and create more opportunities. If helping us transform a multi-billion global industry sounds exciting to you, read on.

The role

You’ll join as a senior member of the Ki Finance Team, the driving force behind our rapidly growing company, as we reinvent the finance model within the insurance industry. As the Head of External Reporting, you'll be responsible for articulating Ki's financial performance to key stakeholders, play a leading role in driving business insight, and contribute to strategic initiatives. Reporting to the Ki Financial Controller, you'll be Ki’s technical accounting expert, manage the preparation and submission of all reporting to external parties and ensure compliance with Brit Group and Fairfax Group accounting and reporting policies. Why not be a part of our ambitious team as we transform this traditional industry using technology and data!

About you

Along with your relevant accounting qualification, you’ll also have an excellent understanding of Lloyd’s Reporting and UK GAAP, IFRS 4 as well as experience preparing financial statements.
Your previous experience and knowledge of general ledger systems (e.g. Dynamics GP) as well as the IFRS 17 regime, would be highly beneficial.

You’ll be a highly driven and ambitious self-starter with the willingness to challenge the status quo and embed change where necessary. Using your knowledge of the London Market and experience with the provision of Management Information, you’ll also have a sound understanding of current insurance industry standards & external statutory and regulatory requirements.

If you are an excellent communicator who is confident in dealing with senior executives and management, this role may be for you.

Our culture

This opportunity comes along with a competitive salary, 27 days annual leave, optional private medical insurance, on target bonus and strong employer’s contributory pension, plus many more benefits. We also operate in a hybrid working capacity meaning you can collaborate in the London office as well as enjoy the ability to work from home.

Inclusion & Diversity is at the heart of our business at Ki. We recognise that diversity in age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, thought and social background bring richness to our working environment. No matter who you are, where you’re from, how you think, or who you love, we believe you should be you.
