Senior Business Analyst
Liverpool Victoria General Insurance Group
Job Type: Not Specified
Who we are
We are not your average insurance company; in fact, we strive to be different. You will not find strict dress codes, jargon-filled documents, or unrealistic targets here. What you will find is a welcoming culture, a clear vision and teams of passionate people doing their best for our customers.
LV= GI is a large, multi-award-winning general insurance company, with nearly 7 million customers and aspirations for future growth. Having recently become part of the Allianz family, we’re proud to be one of the largest personal insurers in the UK.
In an exciting time of change at LV= GI (part of the Allianz Group), collaboration is key! We have a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Business Analyst to join our family of talented people.
As a Senior Business Analyst, you will be an integral part of this evolution, keeping our customer-centric approach and putting the heart back into insurance as we develop out new propositions from idea through to customer launch.
Working in an agile environment, you will be bringing energy to our strategies on key change for the business. This is a dynamic and fast-moving place to work, and with so many moving parts, you will need to be engaging, persuasive and the glue that holds different teams together.
A hands-on approach is needed as in this role you will be the bridge between the business functions and technical teams, working with stakeholders to ensure we achieve the LV= vision to be the Best Loved.
You’re a Business Analyst who is looking to make a difference and exact real change who is used to taking a loose brief and shaping this into what’s required for the Business. You’ll want a role where you can work collaboratively, but with a lot of autonomy too – supported by others in your team but trusted to do your job well and be given the flexibility to manage your time to get the job done.
As an analyst with industry experience, you will be building your track record of taking strategic vision through to realisation. You’re naturally curious, insightful and get to the bottom of problems that your stakeholders haven’t even thought of yet!
Your ability to communicate and collaborate with others will be one of the most important skillset you have for this position: understanding and translating for colleagues with very different specialisms associated within their fields; from stakeholders with operational and strategic sway, to the more technical IT and Development teams.
Experience in the General Insurance sector and an ability to work at a strategic level to help shape up new ideas would be very beneficial – we have a wide range of areas you could be assigned to – from our digital services for our main home, motor or pet insurance products, direct or via our Brokers – right through to our underwriting and pricing areas that underpin everything we do.
Any previous agile experience would be a benefit but is not essential – an open, collaborative mind-set is what we need from you.

You’ll be based at either LVG Croydon, 69 Park Lane, Croydon CR9 1BG or LVGI Bournemouth, Frizzell House, Bournemouth BH1 2NF.
