Returner Programme

Looking for a strong & differentiated culture. We hope you’re the next ‘win’ in our battle for Talent.

 

Every gap in a career is filled with something, it’s how you view the mindset, attitude and ability of the individual around that gap that matters. At Convex we are seeking diversity of thought to drive our business goals, we care about delivery not micro-management. We employ experienced, talented individuals and give them the tools to drive their own success.

 

Why this programme aligns to our Goals

We are excited by our own (ok I’ll say it, you were thinking it anyway) ‘journey’ to being the Insurer of Choice in a very crowded industry with many stereotypes.

Our Values drive what we do, how we do it and we are all measured against them. So it’s safe to say we want to attract people who find these values resonate with them. As an organisation, we care about our Convexians [Convexipedia translation: Employees] family first and mental health & wellbeing are issues we firmly believe in and remind everyone to focus on.

We are committed to creating an environment where everyone is valued. We have set out a suite of enhanced family friendly policies ranging from generous paternity, maternity and shared parental leave to supporting our Convexians with IVF leave or the menopause. We have our amazing office in London, with access to a multi-faith room and a Wellness Room. The Wellness room will be fitted out to:

  • enable anyone feeling unwell to take a break, before heading home or to receive medical assistance
  • enable anyone undergoing medical treatments (such as IVF, diabetes etc) can use this private space to both store any medicines in a lockable fridge as well as administer as required
  • provide a place of calm to help manage anxiety, stress or any requirements due to all types of neuro-diversity
  • enable our new mums returning from maternity leave to express, using the equipment provided by Convex, in a private space
  • anyone needing a quiet space to cool down can use some of our personal fans for their own comfort

As well as a competitive salary we offer 30 days holiday per annum (plus a day off for your birthday), 10% pension employer contribution, 5 x life assurance, Private Medical for you and your dependants.

Some more detail to note about the programme:

  • 6 month returnship format with intention of permanent role at the end
  • Joining as part of a returner cohort of 5 individuals
  • Our programme offers the returner (coaching, supportive line manager, buddy)
  • Qualities & skills that we are seeking in our returners look for the details in the specific job descriptions below

All flexible working options are available – including part-time, compressed hours and job share, if you don’t see something thats suits you, why not suggest an option for us to consider?

Mental health and wellbeing are core areas of focus for us. We want everyone to help and support each other and more importantly to reach out and speak up if they don’t feel great mentally. Prior to and during lockdown, we have partnered with an external provider to run sessions focused on our mental health and wellbeing. Soon we will launch our Mental Health First Aiders too.

Head of Casualty

The sea change in the market is being driven by both deteriorating attritional loss ratios and significant single risk losses. Claims severity/social inflation are impacting programme towers with many insureds/brokers now finding it increasingly difficult to fill large towers of capacity. Given the long tail nature of the business it is hard to see that poor performance will be restricted to one single accident year and so the expectation is that rate hardening will continue into and potentially beyond 2020.

Although I joined Catlin when it was a small business, this is my first opportunity to help build something from the very beginning. Given the calibre of people at Convex, I am extremely excited and feel privileged to be part of this new insurance company of the future.

As a new business we can focus efforts on looking forward – rather than back – and concentrate on building a product offering; individual to our clients’ needs without the collective responsibility of historical performance.

With a strong focus and significant investment in obtaining quality data and utilising it effectively, we believe we can accurately price risk. We also aim to minimise costs through Convex’s flexible structure which concentrates its expenditure on underwriting talent, claims capability and data analytics, in order to provide a reliable and sustainable service offering, tailored to client needs. Convex is backed by long-term capital, making us a dependable, enduring insurance partner for our clients, throughout the underwriting cycle.

Who we do business with

We are open to all types of clients: from the heavily risk managed businesses, to those that are growing and want to assume more of their own risk.

Whether the prospective clients are single territory or large multinational business we have the expertise to offer the right solution.
