Hastings Direct have an exciting opportunity for a curious, creative and data-driven character to dive into Risk Pricing – identifying opportunities to improve how we assess risk to give a fairer price to our customers and thinking laterally about how we approach our work.
With a supportive team around you, your job is to influence and innovate in our decision making. Everything we do starts and ends with our data, so whether it’s by finding trends within it, exploring new ways of how we use it, or finding value in more that we can add to it, you’ll be up close and personal with the work that makes a direct impact on the day-to-day success of the business. You’ll be involved in the biggest and best of the projects that we undertake; project managing, guiding scope and direction for how we get the most out of what we’re planning and ensuring we deliver.
A day in the life might involve:
- Perusing our reports for a lead that you can chase down.
- Collaborating with other areas of our department to bring a new data source to life.
- Owning and sharing your ideas at an executive level, making real change.
- Discussing your novel insurance insights to update our processes.
- Supporting junior analysts in their work for development together.
However far we delve into the data, we feel it’s important to keep sight of the bigger picture; we’re looking for people who are comfortable and confident with numerical and statistical information, that are able to explain what they are seeing with a range of detail.
You’ll need some experience that we can translate into insurance, and we’d love it if you knew your way around an analytical programming environment, whether that be Python, R or any other language/toolkit that you use to find solutions.
Whilst the technical skills to yield results are a vital element of your skillset, we get excited when we see you get excited. We want you to take the initiative, be accountable and honest for the approaches you take and most importantly be passionate about the work you do.
Additionally, we are a platform for building future leaders, so we really value people who are committed to bringing benefit to those around them. You should be able to match your ambition with your ability to share (whether that’s your knowledge or even just your time) with our colleagues.
