Ninety Consulting is an established boutique insurance innovation specialist, working with large global insurance brands, and competing successfully with Big 4 consultancies.
We are looking for a Innovation Engagement Lead who will be responsible for delivering a substantial level of client projects (indicatively, c. £1m combined annual value). Although the Innovation Delivery Director and Client Partner will be responsible for winning projects, you will have input in the preparation of pitches.
You will be working within a delivery team that works as a pool of specialists across a range of our innovation projects. Depending on the project need, the Delivery Director will assemble different groups of consultants from within the team. Thereafter, you will be responsible for shaping project approaches using
Ninety proven methodologies and bespoke approaches. You will be leading their profitable delivery, whilst coaching and managing individual project teams. As the focal point for clients, you will be bringing the delivery of their project together into a powerful outcome for them, and a strong profit-making mechanism for Ninety.
We’d expect you to have impressive experience of hands-on delivery involvement and this role will require you to remain hands on in that capacity. You must have a strong innovation and digital delivery record, and proven and impressive digital transformation or innovation consulting project leadership experience. The role is likely to suit people with agency or consulting backgrounds or in the digital functions of some of the system integrators (e.g. Deloitte Digital). Significant experience in project leadership roles at a proposition testing / design specialist (e.g. Market Gravity, Adaptive Lab) could be highly relevant. The role may suit people with client-side experience, and particularly those with strong innovation or digital experience in the insurance sector or who have been involved in the development and delivery of transformational projects.
The role may also suit tech startup entrepreneurs who have been learning how to build their own tech startup but want to use these sorts of techniques with a wider team around them. 
Ninety has huge growth ambitions and a strong and active growth plan. We are intentionally setting about building for scale with strong advisors on board. Your career path at Ninety can be exciting and varied, including involvement in a potential series of internal product innovation initiatives. There is opportunity to progress through to Delivery Director and Client Partner levels. In the very short-term, though, we will want to see success in project delivery, with highly-satisfied clients and high-margin project outcomes.
