An organisation that effectively marries tradition with innovation, this family-owned group has broadly diversified over the last 200 years. They are now seeking to deliver a pioneering SME insurance experience by capitalising on the smart use of data and new technologies that are available. This will be the group's most significant area of investment in the coming years.


In order to deliver this new platform they are seeking to bring on board a deeply knowledgeable insurance professional with a flair for entrepreneurialism to join the initial leadership team. As a founding member you will take responsibility for driving the strategic formation of the commercial insurance proposition, whilst also developing and managing the marketing and distribution functions. Given this is a startup, in the early stages responsibilities may overlap with the general management function, and you will be central to many strategic discussions and decisions.


Deep knowledge of the commercial insurance sector is prerequisite, and a proven track record of successfully developing and delivering robust distribution strategy is also essential. You will be a confident relationship builder who is comfortable taking responsibility for the success of the business.
