You will lead the efforts to refine, implement and execute our bold data strategy globally working with and through multiple teams in L&H Reinsurance to build cohesion around the ambition and strategy and drive execution efforts.


  • You will both drive and support initiatives in the context of refining and delivering the Global L&H Solutions strategy
  • Help design roadmaps for delivery, collaborating with regions, Group functions and stakeholders to deliver the strategy
  • Coordinate with the regional teams to ensure strategy is aligned with regional clients needs and regional solutions plans.
  • Identify priorities and key decisions needed to deliver the strategy and orchestrate collaboration and prioritisation to achieve this
  • Manage the day to day running of Solutions towards delivering the strategy, including communications with key management committees e.g. RMT, ROC, PSB, etc.
  • Coordinate with Group functions to secure support for development needs in DSA, IT, Digital Ecosystems, etc.
  • Lead delivery of global solutions to meet regional solutions plans and ensure we deliver on the long term solutions ambition
