Description:

Here at Aviva, we are looking for a Public Policy / Public Affairs professional, who has excellent knowledge of politics and/or policy work, ideally matched with either an Insurance, or Financial Services background. If you have a deep interest in politics, matched with ambition to progress further in your public affairs career, we’d love you to hear from you! 

A bit about the job:

Government policy has a huge impact on Aviva – and this role offers an excellent opportunity to work right at the heart of some of the biggest policy challenges affecting our business today, helping us shape and respond to the policy environment in which we operate! You will provide expert advice on the political and legislative developments that affect us – particularly focused on issues that affect our General Insurance business – becoming a trusted counsel, both internally and externally, on key policy issues, engaging with policy makers, trade bodies, and wider stakeholders, to influence the legal and policy environment (FYI: this part of the role will involve an element of travel, both across London and occasionally UK wide). You will also need to complete analysis of government policy and legislation, as well as build consensus across the business on policy positions, priorities, and engagement strategy.

Aviva introduced “smart-working” in 2020 and encourage flexible working; however, the successful post-holder will need to be based a commutable distance from either our Norwich or London offices – with frequent travel across London expected of the successful post-holder as well. 

Skills and experience we’re looking for:

  • Solid understanding of public policy and UK politics, thanks to undertaking a relevant role within either central government / a political organisation or regulator, or within a corporate Public Affairs department 
  • Good influencing, negotiation, and networking skills, with ability to operate in a dynamic and uncertain environment
  • Strong communications skills, with the ability to translate complex policy matters into simple messages
  • Adaptable to changing priorities and able to hit the ground running when dealing with complex issues 
  • Prior work experience within General Insurance or Financial Services would be desirable! 

What you’ll get for this role:

  • Annual salary of £50,000 to £70,000 (depending on location, skills, experience, and qualifications).
  • Generous pension (starting level Aviva contributes 8%, when you contribute 2%).
  • Eligibility for annual performance bonus.
  • Family friendly parental and carer’s leave.
  • 29 days holiday per year plus bank holidays and the option to buy/sell up to 5 additional days.
  • Up to 40% discount for Aviva products.
  • Brilliant flexible benefits including electric cars.
  • Aviva Matching Share Plan and Save As You Earn scheme.
  • 21 volunteering hours per year.
