As a result of an internal promotion, a vacancy has arisen in Product Development for a Product Executive working in the Health and Travel team.
It's a chance to get involved in influencing the shape of these exciting and fast moving insurance products both in terms of day to day management and product development.
Every day presents a new challenge, so you need to be skilled at managing your priorities and able to switch easily between the various product demands and needs. One day could be spent getting to grips with the root cause of a customer complaint, influencing the outcome of any decisions made and then refining product policy as a result, another could be spent researching new product ideas with customers and working with other areas of the business on the project team to ultimately bring them to market, or maybe you could be liaising with our third-party suppliers to ensure they deliver the high standards that we and our customers expect.
Responding to customer and agent feedback and research, you would enjoy varied tasks working in an energetic team and alongside colleagues in other areas of the business to improve processes and products in line with brand values, governance and compliance.
We've got a strong and supportive team who are looking for someone enthusiastic and resilient, with an ability to challenge and improve the way things are done, at all times with the highest level of attention to detail. Excellent technical knowledge of the products is not essential - it's the eagerness and ability to develop it that's more important. If you think that someone could be you, please get in touch.
If this sounds like you, then there’s every opportunity to build a great future within the Saga Group. You can also look forward to a first-rate benefits package including ongoing training, an active social club, subsidised staff restaurant, medical insurance, pension, concessions for holidays and more.see full details.
