Pricing is considered to be a fundamental cornerstone of the successful growth of our client’s business and as they continue to transform from a monoline car insurer to one who offers a growing range of personal lines products, we are looking for driven, skilled and experienced pricing managers to join them at their Cardiff based headquarters.

  • Highly Competitive salary
  • Annual Share scheme

  • Local retailer discounts and much, much more!

What will you be responsible for:

  • Analysing pricing structures and past performance to improve risk management.
  • Assessing the usefulness of external data sources and managing partnerships with data vendors
  • Communicating results and ideas to key decision makers across different group companies, including Heads of Department and CEO/COO
  • Collaborating with peers in pricing and with stakeholders from all relevant areas of the business
  • Coaching/mentoring team members

Qualifications, skills and experience we are looking for:

  • A degree, 2:1 (or equivalent) or above in a highly mathematical subject
  • Strong quantitative and analytical skills supported by a solid academic and work background
  • 2-5 year's experience in any general insurance pricing role
  • Experience of working with SAS or similar packages essential
  • Experience of GLM and/or Machine Learning techniques and software such as Emblem is an advantage
  • Proactive and creative approach to taking initiative and getting things done

  • Team player with proven ability to collaborate and build relationships
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills (both written and verbal)
