Head of Operations - Underwriting

Posted 5 February by IPS Group

Head of Operations - Underwriting c£100,000 + 35% bonus and LTIP

A leading global insurance business is making changes within its Northern regional office based in Manchester. They are looking to create a dynamic new environment restructured from the ground up and this has created the opportunity for the business to externally hire a Head of Operations who will take the lead in implementing change to deliver a brand new strategy.

The team is made up of 50 technical insurance staff (non call centre) who currently handle commercial insurance business. From day one you will review the operation, develop a new structure and subsequently define and implement the business change. The new job holder will align the teams to maximise business output whilst driving employee engagement as the changes are implemented.

Although this is a strategic role you will be very hands on with regards to the implementation of this change so we are looking for someone who can no only review but implement and deliver the target operational model.

You must have:

  • Proven ability in achieving growth & profits, managing P&L
  • Drive, energy, passion, ability to keep up with pace & constant changing demands.
  • Ensuring operational effectiveness, looking for opportunities for improvement
  • Strong leadership abilities

Candidates with these personal attributes who can combine them with senior management experience gained within the Insurance financial services industry are the people we are keen to talk to.
