About the Team
Hiscox is a global specialist insurer underwriting a range of commercial and personal risks. Hiscox has grown from a single underwriter based at Lloyd's into a FTSE 250 company with 31 offices across 14 countries and customers around the world, with its headquarters in Bermuda.
We are embarking on a multi-year transformation of our finance function in order to meet our growth ambitions. A core enabler to this Finance Transformation Programme is to ensure that the finance systems and data architecture supporting the business are fit for purpose and future-proofed to help drive the growth agenda of the business.
A significant amount of work has already been undertaken to understand our needs and define the journey of transformation that is required. The programme is firmly in flight and key components of our target solution includes the implementation of a General Ledger solution that works alongside a Finance Data Warehouse and Accounting Rules Engine.
The role will require the ability to see the bigger picture and the links and dependencies with the other projects within the overall Finance Transformation Programme. It will also require an understanding of basic Back Office accounting processes and the people, processes and systems needed to support them.
As an international specialist insurer we are far removed from the world of mass market insurance products. Instead we are selective and focus on our key areas of expertise and strength - all of which is underpinned by a culture that encourages us to challenge convention and always look for a better way of doing things.
We insure the unique and the interesting. And we search for the same when it comes to talented people. Hiscox is full of smart, reliable human beings that look out for customers and each other. We believe in doing the right thing, making good and rebuilding when things go wrong. Everyone is encouraged to think creatively, challenge the status quo and look for solutions.
Scratch beneath the surface and you will find a business that is solid, but slightly contrary. We like to do things differently and constantly seek to evolve. We might have been around for a long time (our roots go back to 1901), but we are young in many ways, ambitious and going places.
Some people might say insurance is dull, but life at Hiscox is anything but. If that sounds good to you, get in touch.
