An Innovation & Partnership Manager is required by my client, one of the largest insurers in the UK, to join them on an initial 6 month contract.
This role is a new role for the department and part of a larger programme of change over the next 12-24 months. You will be responsible for articulating the organisations Insurtech investment and partnership strategy.
You will work closely with the business units and core functions to help to identify disruptive technology opportunities from both the start-up community and higher education organisations which could add complementary capabilities to align with business activities.
The role will enable you to work closely with start-ups to give them access to core insurance capabilities (i.e. pricing, underwriting, claims, etc.) to support lean Agile product development.
Insurance market experience is preferred but an established network within the start-up Fintech or Insurtech community and higher education establishments is required.
