Job Description

We are looking for a Syndicate Accountant

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.

What you will be working on

As a Syndicate Accountant at Ki, you'll be part of a team that's transforming the traditional insurance
industry using technology and data. You'll be responsible for the day-to-day accounting of Lloyd’s
Syndicate 1618, ensuring that the books and records are accurate and efficient. You'll also have the opportunity to drive improvements to the underlying processes and work closely with cross-functional teams. Additionally, you'll assist in the production and review of regulatory returns for Syndicate 1618. This is a critical role that offers the opportunity to make a real impact in a dynamic and innovative company.

About you

You’ll be a qualified accountant who has worked within the London Insurance Market, dealing with the operation of a Lloyd’s Syndicate Ledger. Along with your knowledge of Great Plains / Dynamics GP general ledger, you’ll also have previous experience with data analysis tools and techniques. You’re a great team player as well as capable of doing individual work, with a keen eye for detail and deadline delivery.


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!
