Are you keen to work somewhere that’s stimulating and friendly, with loads of opportunities for growth and plenty of freedom to make a real impact? This could be the place for you! 

We are looking for a Head of Pricing to join us at INSHUR; we are based in sunny Brighton (sea, chips and seagulls included) and our company embraces a hybrid working model, allowing you to thrive in both collaborative office settings and the comfort of your own home. You’ll have the opportunity to work remotely while also connecting with your colleagues at our Brighton office, fostering a dynamic and supportive environment.

You’ll be working on re-inventing insurance in exciting markets across multiple territories including the UK, US and the Netherlands, and new European countries as we expand.

Supported by (and reporting to) the Director of Underwriting, you'll be joining a friendly team who believe in challenging the traditional ways of insurance. We aim to provide pricing and analytical solutions to create innovative insurance products that the market has not seen.

We value high performance and care deeply about making INSHUR feel like a place where everyone is building something really special, that we can all be proud of, and doing it with friends.

  • Monitoring business performance
  • Set and deliver the plan for reviewing and rebuilding pricing models and implementing innovative rating factors
  • Accountability for Pricing on key company projects
  • Driving analytical and Data Science growth across the rest of the business
  • Developing prices for Fleet and future products
  • Other responsibilities which may be reasonably expected to deliver business objectives and create a market leading Pricing & Data Science function

Below is a guideline of skills that we think would make you successful in this role.

  • Know the benefits of price optimisation and how to use it in practice
