Every business faces risks of all shapes and sizes. As innovative as we are, we can never know exactly what's around the corner. But we can plan for all eventualities. Working across every area of the organisation, Group Risk Management helps us to understand the risks we face and find ways to manage them effectively, in order to achieve the best outcomes – for customers, for members and for the business. As we offer a broad range of insurance products and services, we’re exposed to a broad range of risk, financial crime and compliance challenges. For our talented team, this means a constant stream of exciting projects and new, interesting opportunities.
Insurance is increasingly important to the UK population, which means that the focus on risk, compliance and financial crime management is growing. As such, there’s a culture of continual improvement in Group Risk Management. It’s a fast-paced, exciting function to work in with lots of interesting challenges, especially as regulatory activity increases and the EU and UK government take more involvement in insurance companies.
There are opportunities to get stuck in to new product launches, system changes, acquisitions, regulatory change, and also to help shape future government policy through lobbying activities. Balancing commercial outcomes with a good understanding of customers’ needs, Group Risk Management drives innovative initiatives in areas such as new fraud and financial crime systems, data analytics and risk management techniques.
Our people tell us that the team spirit in Group Risk Management at LV= is unlike any other across the industry. When you combine the fantastic culture, the exposure to high profile projects and the impact the function has on the business, we believe that we have something truly special. Working in Group Risk Management, you’ll be encouraged to share your ideas and help make them happen, in a function where opportunity and challenge are rife. Helping to shape the most effective approach to risk management, you’ll add real value to the business and we’ll invest in your career.
