  • Building a strong working relationship with both customers and your own team, use this relationship to influence and advise customers to ensure they get maximum value from our products.
  • Adhere to our core principles of integrity, rationality, and collegiality.

Required skills and experience:

  • Preference given to candidates that have proven track record working as a business analyst or similar role.
  • Ideally candidates would have experience working in the insurance or financial services industry but this is not required.
  • Strong communication, interpersonal skills and team focus.
