We’re looking for Policy Adviser, Conduction Regulation to influence General Insurance policy change that will shape UK and international conduct regulation of the insurance industry. You’ll genuinely make a difference and tangibly see how you guide and effect policy across a huge section of the industry.

Your role:

At the heart of your role will be building positive, trusted relationships with a wide network. This includes our member companies, UK and EU regulators, Government, other trade associations and consumer organisations.

Day-to-day you will:

  • Formulate and communicate persuasive policy positions, supported by robust evidence, that promotes the interests of insurers in relation to conduct regulation issues.
  • Lead and contribute to policy development work with members, including providing proactive and efficient secretariat to working groups/committees and seeking input from across the industry.

Alongside this, you’ll also need excellent analytical skills and be able to digest complex policy information quickly and make it accessible for others.

We’re equally open to an assistant looking to step up as we are to a more experience adviser but an understanding of the General Insurance market, familiarity with the FCA and how it’s structured are vital. Ideally, you’ll also have a good insight into how European structures work.
