Head of learning and development

Far from fulfilling a musty insurance stereotype, we’ve created a colourful, collaborative working environment with a casual dress code, flexible working hours and an open-plan office.

Unlike other companies you will not be a tiny cog in a corporate machine, but a key part of the business and its growth. We keep our startup roots and entrepreneurialism at our heart, and give our employees the freedom and support to pursue what they’re interested in.
