About the Opportunity

It's been a fast growth trajectory since our Series D funding and our launch in the USA in March 2021 - and our business model is undergoing exciting change.  We have ambitious plans to build on our remarkable growth trajectory by acquiring our own US-based, insurance carrier (which is currently going through the process of obtaining regulatory approval.)  By acquiring our own carrier alongside our existing brokerage business, we will be able to provide best-in-breed cover for our customers and have more flexibility in delivering product innovation. 

Given our plans, we’re now looking for a Compliance Officer to help us manage the regulatory responsibilities of our US business.  In this role, you’ll take ownership of all regulatory compliance for our new venture: Many Insurance Company – a Delaware incorporated insurance carrier and additionally all compliance for our existing US brokerage business. 

We’re looking for a skilled relationship builder and someone who can break down complicated requirements into something everyone can understand.  You’ll bring a deep understanding of federal and state laws and regulations – coupled with the ability to independently recognize, develop, and implement cost effective compliance solutions for our program.  You'll be a key person in the development of our current and future approach.

Reporting directly to our CEO of the Carrier in the USA, you’ll guide the overall direction of compliance, challenging how we operate and acting as a catalyst for change. We’ll look to you to identify opportunities for improvement, growth and iteration and fostering a culture of compliance across our business.    By joining us at this stage in our journey, you'll have plenty of scope to grow with us - plus build truly meaningful relationships with a smorgasbord of stakeholders across our growing teams including our US CEO and our Group Head of Compliance.

Your Focus

  • Delivering our local market compliance programme, including monitoring.
  • Supporting the drafting, reviewing, and negotiating of insurance-related contracts in conjunction with our US Legal Counsel and any external advisers we're working with.
  • Submitting all information necessary to meet statutory and regulatory requirements on time to the appropriate Committees, Boards, and external bodies.
  • Assisting with incident management, and regulatory reporting, where rule breaches have occurred.
  • Ensuring all correspondence, websites, marketing material and documents comply with regulatory requirements before providing compliance approval.
  • Acting a single point of contract for insurance regulators.
  • Horizon scanning and proactively advising the business on compliance best practices and on the latest changes in regulatory requirements.
  • Providing advice, guidance and insight to management and staff on compliance issues.
  • Developing, implementing, and maintaining an effective US compliance training programme.
  • Working with other departments and functions across the US business to implement and enforce policies.
  • Building and maintaining great working relationships with all levels of stakeholders including partners, regulators, and auditors.
  • Working closely with (and where appropriate) escalating matters to the US CEO as needed.

Hybrid-Working

Everything changed overnight when the pandemic happened. Suddenly everything was different: whether we were in a home office, spare room, or makeshift desk: we were working on our own and dealing with Zoom calls, bad Wi-Fi, and a very different working day.  We now work from home and our company office, so we've created our Making Work, Work guide, which explains it all.

We offer a fantastic range of company benefits to suit everyone in a remote-first world, with a focus on supporting our physical and mental wellbeing. Coupled with a generous holiday allowance and regular care packs, we’re always looking for new ways to look out for our people.

Our Values

Our company values drive everything we do - and they are:
