We are looking for an Internal Controls Assistant
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.
You'll have previous experience of working in an internal control type role, preferably within the insurance industry and along with your willingness to learn, you'll be able to develop a sound understanding of control principles and management, with a particular focus on financial reporting operational and business process risks. You'll use your analytical approach along with the ability to work systematically and unsupervised, to tight deadlines and with multiple competing priorities. You'll be a self-motivated, organised problem solver with excellent report writing skills and you'll be able to assimilate, manage and communicate salient details relating to large volumes of information, including technical issues and data.
What you’ll be working on
The Internal Control Framework has the primary objective of eliminating the risk of material misstatement in the financial statements. Amongst other things, this is achieved by:
• Strengthening internal controls over financial reporting [‘ICOFR’] and other financial / fiscal responsibilities;
• Ensuring financial data is accurately captured and reported on an end-to-end basis;
• Ensuring annual SOX compliance
• Documenting, monitoring, assessing and reporting financial reporting risks and controls in a consistent manner and creating a controls repository;
• Determining clear ownership and accountabilities across all areas
• Investigating breaches, exceptions, gaps and deficiencies and ensuring appropriate and timely remedial action;
• Monitoring and, where appropriate, participating in change
• Assisting the Group’s growth strategy.
If you are keen to take responsibility for the maintenance, monitoring and reporting of control performance, this is the ideal role for you.
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.
You’ll get a highly competitive remuneration and benefits package. This is kept under constant review to make sure it stays relevant. We understand the power of saying thank you and take time to acknowledge and reward extraordinary effort by teams or individuals. If this sounds like a role and a culture that appeals to you, let us know. Apply now!
