We are looking for someone who is an excellent relationship builder able to drive complex and challenging initiatives working across functional boundaries, and someone who can use a range of communication and influencing techniques to gain support and buy-in from stakeholders.

Strong knowledge of Matching Adjustment and Solvency II regulation and considerations will be key to delivering the optimisation ideas needed to drive the business forward in a and compliant manner.

Experience of supporting investment solutions within an insurance environment, covering multi-asset portfolios and ALM solutions.

Inspiring people leadership is required to ensure we build a strong, engaged team and develop our internal talent.
