Business Readiness

We have an opportunity for a professional experienced in project delivery to join our IFRS17 project on a 12-month FTC.

The project is focussed on delivering the systems and process capability to report under the new IFRS17 reporting standard for Insurance businesses. This is a major change which affects all Aviva Markets.

As the IFRS17 project moves into its third Extended Proof of Concept and looks beyond to ‘Dry Run’ and ‘Go Live’, there is an increasing focus on preparing the business for the transition to live running of new processes. As a result, the project is growing its Reporting Readiness capability.

The role sits within the Requirements and Business Readiness Team; currently a team of 5, and forms part of the wider IFRS17 Data and Systems Project.

Key responsibilities within the role include:

Working with UK Life business areas and in-scope markets to develop detailed transition plans for implementation of the IFRS17 Operating Model

Driving delivery of transition plans, generating appropriate MI to track and report on progress to key stakeholders

Active participation in the AFO Business Implementation Team working groups, representing the project on this key panel

Skills & experience we’re looking for:

Experience of working in a Financial Reporting environment

Ideally a qualified Accountant, Auditor or Actuary

Experience working on projects with multiple senior stakeholders and excellent stakeholder management ability

Experience working with people/teams from widely different backgrounds

Excellent interpersonal skills

Prior experience in an operating model development/transition planning/operational or business readiness role highly desired

What will you get for this role?

A competitive salary depending on location, skills, experience and qualifications

Generous defined contribution pension scheme

Annual performance related bonus and pay review

Holiday allowance of 29 days plus bank holidays and the option to buy/sell up to 5 additional days

Up to 40% discount for some Aviva products through “My Aviva Extras” plus discounts for Friends and Family (some exclusions apply)

Excellent range of flexible benefits to include a matching share save scheme

Working at Aviva

At Aviva, we’re people with a purpose. To be with you today, for a better tomorrow.

We bring this to life by ensuring managing risk is at the heart of the way we all work. We love people who do the right thing for our customers, and our colleagues. We want people who speak up, who take responsibility, and who make good decisions.

The way we do this is important too. We always ‘Care More’. It’s our thing! We’re all about our people – that’s you – so we can be pretty flexible. If you want to work from home some of the time or change your hours so you can pick up your kids or care for someone in your family, we’re very open to that. In fact, we don’t advertise roles as either part or full time, because we know each person has different needs, just as each business area has different needs. So, it’s up to you to discuss working hours during your interview.

We care deeply about being inclusive and that means we encourage applications from people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We want our employees to bring their whole self to work and that starts with you!

We interview every disabled applicant* that meets the minimum criteria for the job. Just send us an email once you’ve applied stating that you have a disclosed disability, and we’ll make sure we interview you.


*As defined in The Equality Act 2010*. By ‘minimum criteria’ we mean you should provide us with evidence which demonstrates that you generally meet the level of competence required and have the qualifications, skills or experience defined as essential to perform the role.
