As a Mutual Friendly Society, Holloway Friendly has been supporting its members at times of need since 1875. We embarked on a root-and-branch strategic review programme 5 years ago, resulting in a new leadership team, new brand, new IT system and a very strong member-centric culture. We have built a brand that is challenging aspects of the UK protection market by adopting a more transparent and inclusive approach to underwriting, claims management and product development. Our ambition is for the Society to be a respected player in its chosen market.
Our Board ensures the proper running of the Society on behalf of its members and has been strengthened as part of our strategic review. We are now recruiting an independent Non-Executive Director who can support, challenge and work with other members of the Board to continue on this journey.
We are looking for someone who can demonstrate critical thinking with a strategic awareness, proven business acumen and an understanding of the responsibilities and limitations of a Non-Executive Directors role. You will be an excellent communicator, personable and willing to support the Society's values.
We are looking for previous experience in any of the following;
- a UK life protection manufacturer (life insurer, mutual insurer or friendly society)
- a reinsurer
- a professional services consulting business
We recognise the value of diversity in race, religion, gender and life experiences and we are committed to promoting the inclusion of a range of perspective, ideas and talents in all that we do.
We welcome and encourage applications from everyone regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.
