We are supporting a global reinsurance player in the Life market, who are looking to find a new Head of Strategy to drive international expansion across Europe.
You will be the first strategy hire the business has made and your remit will be twofold. First, to create the market entry strategy for the business’ expansion into European markets. Second, to establish and build a strategy capability for a business that has previously not had a strategy function.
You will report directly into the Head of Finance for Europe and will be advising the ExCo on the biggest strategic questions impacting the business, with the key growth lever identified as international expansion. This remit will be able to expand to a global role as well as have the chance to step out into the wider business into a more P&L opportunity in the future.
You will have the chance to build a small team around you to support the design of the business’ growth strategy.
- You will have several years of experience in a strategy consulting firm supporting growth strategy and market entry engagements.
- Insurance knowledge is not required for this position.
- Excellent communications skills with experience of interacting with and influencing at the ExCo level.
