If you’re inspired to join us, and if you have the necessary qualities, then this could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for. 


At Prudential we’re absolutely focused on getting the best outcomes for customers. Ours is one of the most profitable and trusted names in life and pensions, and we lead the market in a number of pension products.


Prudential serves more than seven million people in the UK, spanning a wide range of products and services. To help customers make sense of the complex choices they face our customer service team has to be of a quality that’s second to none.

The role requires both technical and people management skills, with the latter being required to manage the day to day activity and performance management aspects of a team of permanent and contract staff co-located between Reading and Mumbai.  Stakeholder management is also a key aspect, with interactions required with managers of all levels across the UK and the group, KPMG (our external auditors) and other third party providers.


Skills and Experience:

• Proven experience of managing both the technical and performance management elements of a team

• Relevant professional IT audit qualifications such as CISA

• Significant experience of analysing situations to identify issues and produce resolution recommendations
