The team

The role

This role will be aligned to our Partnerships division. The Partnerships team is a well-established contributor to the profitable growth of our Direct business.

Hiscox Partnerships have traditionally been built around our market leading HNW proposition, working with a range of associations to distribute our Home products to their members.

The role will be based in York, with occasional travel to UK offices where required.
