Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Financial Accountant - IFRS 17 (Operations)

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.

Having written over $877m in gross written premium in 2023, we’ve achieved significant growth since our beginnings in 2021. Our investors were excited about the fact we were revolutionising the way a 333 year-old industry was working. There are hardly any industries left that are mainly paper based, but the specialty insurance market is one. Together with partners at Google and UCL we developed Ki and created a platform that helps insurance brokers place risk in a fast and frictionless way. We’re continuing to lead the charge on the digitisation of this market and we need more excellent minds to work with us to realise this goal and create more opportunities.

The day to day

This role is part of the Ki Financial Operations and Ledgers team and is responsible for the production of Ki’s quarterly & annual IFRS 17 results and submission to the Group alongside wider stakeholders. The team are focussed on the production of Ki’s numbers, the undertaking of finance operations and the posting of entries to ledger, specifically in relation to IFRS 17. Ki Finance is a new team, and this role will be involved in embedding all the necessary processes to ensure the team meets its deliverables. At times this will mean getting involved in other areas of Finance.

About you

You’ll be an experienced accountant working within insurance, and you’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate your strong technical knowledge and practical experience in applying International Financial Reporting Standards and UK GAAP. Along with your proficiency in using Excel at an advanced level, with expertise in data analysis tools and techniques, you’ll also have experience with IFRS 17, and possess advanced numeric and analytical skills, with a keen attention to detail and strong report writing abilities.
You’ll have a proven track record of delivering high-quality work within tight deadlines, effective prioritization and organizational skills, ability to adapt to changing requirements and be able to collaborate within a team setting.

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.
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!
