Assurance functions help protect and strengthen every aspect of a business, from people to performance, systems to strategy, business plans to business resilience.
At Beazley our Assurance function is made up of Risk Management, Compliance and Internal Audit.
The Risk Management team are responsible for identifying all the risks the group is exposed to that can damage the company either financially or reputationally.
We’re also in charge of ensuring the appropriate controls are in place and effectively owned and managed to mitigate risk.
Our Compliance team provide assurance to the relevant boards and committees that Beazley’s business operations meet the applicable regulatory requirements, and are reflective of relevant guidance and best practice standards.
It is the role of Internal Audit to provide independent assurance that our risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively. They look beyond financial risks and statements to consider wider issues such as the organisation’s reputation. In short, Internal Audit adds value and protects the company – it’s a diverse and interesting job that is involved with every team at Beazley.
What we look for
We’re looking for motivated people who will be passionate about helping the business achieve its goals while minimising risk and protecting our brand. Useful skills include: critical thinking, good communication skills and relationship building, computer skills, data mining and analytics.
Claims teams are responsible for processing and investigating insurance claims relating to customers’ policies. This will involve working with the insurance broker, policy holder and other professionals to ensure the claim is valid. Claims employees are responsible for assessing the scope, causes, complexity and loss amount, as well as determining the legal obligation of an insurer to indemnify a claim. As every insurance claim is different, the day to day role of a claims manager will vary.
