Who we are

We are not your average insurance company; in fact, we strive to be different. You will not find strict dress codes, jargon-filled documents, or unrealistic targets here. What you will find is a welcoming culture, a clear vision and teams of passionate people doing their best for our customers.

LV= GI is a large, multi-award-winning general insurance company, with nearly 7 million customers and aspirations for future growth. Having recently become part of the Allianz family, we’re proud to be one of the largest personal insurers in the UK.

Role Description

LV=GI have a new opportunity for a Principal Pricing Analyst within our Home Technical Pricing team covering our office in London or Bournemouth

About you

We don't expect you to know everything from day one, but the following will enable you to hit the ground running:

  • Solid knowledge of relevant statistical modelling methods – in particular GLMs
  • Knowledge of relevant machine learning techniques – in particular GBMs
  • Proven experience in working with large data sources
  • Good command of Python, SQL, SAS or similar coding languages
  • Experience of Willis Towers Watson software such as Radar or Emblem
  • Good understanding of the various elements of a Technical Price, including business expenses, other costs and actuarial/inflation assumptions
  • Good stakeholder management skills, including communication, expectation management and the ability to convey technical concepts to a non-technical audience
  • Ability to build and maintain relationships throughout both the Pricing Department and the wider business

In addition you will be quick to learn, with the ability to prioritise activities and work accurately to tight deadlines, always remaining responsive to the needs of the business

Ideally you will hold a highly numerate degree, and have experience of applying your knowledge in a business environment.  A background in either Motor or Home General Insurance Pricing is helpful but not essential.

The Details

Your role will vary day to day, but here is a bit of what you can expect:

  • Assist in planning and carrying out risk model updates – continually looking to improve data and processes
  • Work with different teams and stakeholders to achieve an understanding of their needs, data requirements and expected  modelling outcomes
  • Get hands-on with data from its source right through to modelling and then implementation in rating
  • Analyse data, interpret output and communicate results to a non-technical audience
  • Build and test Statistical models and machine learning algorithms
  • Work with Data Enrichment team to obtain and use third-party and internally-generated data sources to enhance models
  • Support the business in the deployment of its data solution
  • Assist in coaching and developing other colleagues within the team to ensure constant up-skilling.

Recognised and rewarded for a job well done, we have a range of flexible benefits for you to choose from- so you can pick a package that’s perfect for you. We also offer flexible working options, global career opportunities across the wider Allianz Group, and fantastic career development and training. That’s on top of enjoying all the benefits you’d expect from the world’s number one insurance brand, including:

  • 30 days' holiday
  • A competitive pension for which LV= will pay twice the amount you pay, up to 14% 
  • An annual bonus scheme based on company and personal performance
  • A flexible benefits package (e.g. discounted retail vouchers, great value dental insurance)
  • Private medical insurance which you can upgrade to family cover
  • ElectriX EV salary sacrifice scheme
  • A generous 25% discount off our general insurance products including home, pet and travel as well as up to 50% discount on your car insurance.
