Travel Insurance Pricing

Travel Insurance plays a key role within Admiral Insurance’s diversification strategy with Pricing playing a key role in its success. With the ever-increasing volume, velocity, and variety of information available, Pricing plays a key role in navigating the complexity in order to be able to set prices rationally, accurately, and fairly and ensure the business remains competitive.

Pricing Analysts will help build and run pricing models, presenting and communicating recommendations for rate changes and are responsible for setting and maintaining the rates which create competitive prices for our customers as well as supporting the wider product development. Key responsibilities may include:

  • Running pricing models using statistical tools and understanding the numbers within those models
  • Having responsibility for making recommendations for potential improvements to our products’ rating structure such as through external data sources
  • Creating and running reports as and when needed
  • Acting as a liaison for pricing in answering customer queries related to pricing
  • Assisting in testing pricing related changes that are being implemented in the system

This is not a full definition of the role but covers the main aspects and drivers for success.

About You

Qualifications

  • A degree, 2:1 (or equivalent) or above in a STEM or strong numeric discipline

Key Skills

  • Highly motivated and ability to work off your own initiative
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Demonstrable ability to combine analytical thinking based on numbers, together with common sense and imagination
  • Flexibility to adapt to changing conditions and priorities
  • Prior experience with any programming language is preferred; in-house training will be provided to adapt to the role’s requirements

Location

  • We are working in a hybrid approach and so are in the office twice per week in Cardiff.  We will provide you with everything you need to work comfortably from home.

Training & Development

Training for the role will be provided by the senior members of the Pricing Team. In addition, you will be part of a small team and will have plenty of opportunity to interact, develop and learn from others. The team have generally adopted a hybrid working pattern split between at least 2 days in the office and working from home. We will provide you with everything you need to work comfortably from home.

Thanks to the culture and structure of our business, the skills and experience developed within our Pricing team would be transferable to other analytical departments. Prior work experience is not required for the role, but the candidate must demonstrate willingness to work hard and succeed through prior academic and/or extracurricular activities.
