About Hiscox
As an international specialist insurer we are far removed from the world of mass market insurance products. Instead we are selective and focus on our key areas of expertise and strength - all of which is underpinned by a culture that encourages us to challenge convention and always look for a better way of doing things.
We insure the unique and the interesting. And we search for the same when it comes to talented people. Hiscox is full of smart, reliable human beings that look out for customers and each other. We believe in doing the right thing, making good and rebuilding when things go wrong. Everyone is encouraged to think creatively, challenge the status quo and look for solutions.
Scratch beneath the surface and you will find a business that is solid, but slightly contrary. We like to do things differently and constantly seek to evolve. We might have been around for a long time (our roots go back to 1901), but we are young in many ways, ambitious and going places.
Some people might say insurance is dull, but life at Hiscox is anything but. If that sounds good to you, get in touch.
The Team
The IT function is led by the Group CIO who manages a team of around 300 permanent and other IT professionals and vendors. Reporting to the CIO are 11 Heads of IT who are accountable for supporting the P&L of the business units and are responsible for delivering world-class operational IT services. This new role forms part of the IT Management Operations team who are accountable for the Finance, Procurement/Sourcing, Vendor Management and Project Support across IT. We’re a dynamic team with a broad spectrum of talent, designed to underpin the other business units in our operations whilst providing an excellent foundation of career growth into many aspects of Hiscox.
