This is a great opportunity to start an analytical career where you can be creative in your approach to solving problems and be at the cutting edge of our business – pushing boundaries and influencing others to have a real impact.
As a Claims Analytics Graduate you’ll join the Group Claims Strategy, Analytics and Operations function based in London. Over the course of your graduate programme, you’ll spend roughly half your time in AdvancedAnalytics, splitting the remainder between Management Information (MI) and Operations.
Advanced analytics is the team that provides data science and advanced analytical capabilities to leaders of the different business units at Hiscox. These leaders could have questions such as: What is currently happening in the business? What if we change this specific lever? What does the future look like? Answering these questions is one of the key roles of advanced analytics. The team are here to empower the business with robust predictive models. They predominantly execute artificial intelligence and machine learning projects, but at the same time helping the business with day to day insights.
The Group Claims MI team is responsible for reporting, analytics, data visualisations and insights to support the strategic decision making of the Claims Executive Group and wider business.
This team pushes our analytical capability to the next level, experimenting with new technologies. We have a lot of data, and a lot of possibilities! You’ll be given freedom to explore methods, technologies, and languages to finding insights independently and improve our analytical capability.
In Claims Operations, you’ll drive the business requirements and contribute to the delivery of the overall claims strategy that is seeking to simplify the Claims function, utilise technology to remove repetition, offer customers an improved digital journey and provision data for better claims decisions, while influencing our underwriting and pricing proposition. The claims strategy is a multi-year programme of work that is designed to provide competitive advantage through best in class service.
You may also complete a further rotation outside of the function to develop your understanding of a different part of the business.
Your graduate experience will equip you to step up into a more senior level role within the function once the programme ends, where you’ll combine your technical and interpersonal skills to have an even greater impact on our business.
What qualifications do I need?
You’ll have achieved (or be expecting to achieve) at least a 2:1 honours degree in the UK (or international equivalent) in a quantitative discipline such as Maths/Statistics, Science, Economics/Finance or Computer Science. Proficiency in a programming language such as SQL, R or Python would be useful, but is not essential – but you’ll need the aptitude to learn!
Any other requirements?
You’ll be happy to be mobile for the duration of the scheme (27 months) should travel be required, and understand that being flexible on location after the scheme will help to accelerate your career and enable you to fulfill your potential.
You’ll be able to speak and write fluently in business English, be numerate, and demonstrate strong interpersonal skills. The successful candidate must, by the start of the employment, have permission to work in the UK. You’ll be able to join the scheme in September 2022.
The closing date for applications is 31st December 2021, although opportunities may close early if we receive a high volume of applicants – therefore please apply as soon as possible.
At Hiscox we care about our people. We hire the best people for the job and we’re committed to diversity and creating a truly inclusive culture, which we believe drives success. We have learned over the pandemic that working life doesn’t always have to be in the office, and have introduced hybrid ways of working for our teams, including our Graduates.
We see it as the best of both worlds: structure and sociability on one hand, and independence and flexibility on the other.
