Underwriting Services at Hastings Direct
As a small team working on a broad range of projects that have major business impact, we play a crucial part in the company’s success. By studying historic claims data, analysing customer behaviour, considering trends and identifying opportunities, we ensure the business collects enough premiums to cover the cost of customer claims whilst aiming to stay competitive on new business and retain existing customers.
This includes researching and analysing new types of data which could improve our pricing even further. From hypothesis testing, to product design and presenting our findings to different audiences, colleagues have the chance to develop a full range of skills and strengths.
We look for people who combine a thorough, analytical approach and an eye for detail with strong technical knowledge of policy and claims, or analytical and programming skills. Join us and you’ll enjoy the opportunity to learn a variety of new skills and further your career in an environment that encourages a can-do attitude.
Speed and accuracy are essential, so we use the latest cutting-edge machine learning techniques and analytical tools, such as Python & R & high-speed data environments. We pride ourselves on delivery so that all of our analysts can see directly the impact their models & analysis have on key business outcomes.
With plenty of opportunities to develop strengths and the flexibility to build a successful and rewarding career, you’ll never be bored here. We’re passionate about data - exploring it, developing models and using it to drive change and we look for people who share this enthusiasm. To succeed in our team, you need strong coding skills and should be comfortable in a fast-paced organisation that’s constantly changing and innovating.
