Overview of the Role: 

Ninety Consulting is an established boutique insurance innovation specialist, working with large global insurance brands, and competing successfully with Big 4 consultancies.

We are looking for a Consultant to work on a range of exciting innovation, proposition development and
product launch projects in the UK and beyond. Line managed by the Innovation Delivery Director, but
working on a project-by-project basis for a Innovation Engagement Lead, the role here will be responsible
for delivering the agreed project activities and deliverables, using the methodologies that Ninety already
offers, as well as by developing new ones as required. You will be working within a delivery team that works
as a pool of specialists across a range of our innovation projects. Depending on the project need, the Delivery
Director will assemble different groups of consultants from within the team. The role will specifically be
responsible for ensuring efficient and high quality delivery of our award-winning 123 methodology for
insurance innovation and for taking on important tasks in bespoke consulting engagements and other
services, including developing new customer value propositions.

We’d expect you to have impressive experience of hands-on delivery involvement, and to be highly involved.
We are looking for someone who is eager to keep their sleeves rolled up, delivering ideation methodologies,
innovation approaches, proposition development projects, and MVP / PoCs with real consumers. You must
have a strong innovation and digital delivery record, and proven and impressive digital transformation or
innovation consulting project experience. The role is likely to suit people with agency or consulting
backgrounds, working for digital agencies or consultancies, or in the digital functions of some of the system
integrators (e.g. Deloitte Digital). Significant experience on projects at a proposition testing / design
specialist (e.g. Market Gravity, Adaptive Lab) could be highly relevant. The role may suit people with clientside
experience, and particularly those with good innovation or digital experience in the insurance sector.
The role may also suit tech startup entrepreneurs who have been learning how to build their own tech
startup, but want to use these sorts of techniques with a wider team around them and a greater variety of
opportunities.

We are a business with huge growth ambitions and a strong and active growth plan, who are intentionally
setting about building for scale with strong advisors on board. Your career path at Ninety can be exciting and
varied, with the growing business offering opportunities for role expansion and promotion for deserving
candidates.

A different sort of company:
We are motivated by a desire to use our profits to play a big part in addressing causes of poverty in third
world countries. Ninety Consulting is a wholly-owned subsidiary of a registered social enterprise, Ninety
CIC, and 90% of our distributable profit goes to such causes, with the other 10% being shared amongst staff
as a profit share. Our vision is to give £1bn to social causes over a 30-year timeframe. Buy-in to our vision
and cause is an important part of feeling part of the team at Ninety.

Remuneration & reward:
We are seeking people who are looking for a purpose-driven career, in which they can make a tangible
difference to 10,000’s of the extreme poor every year. We will be looking for strong evidence of social
motivation over personal ambition. Competitive base salary, depending on experience, plus package benefits
including pension, life and health insurance, plus a share of 10% profit.

Hiring process:
we will filter applications, hold initial telephone interviews, then invite a handful of candidates to formal
interview. Those who seem to fit best at formal interview will be invited to a more detailed interview at which
they will be asked to present a proposal and talk through approaches. References will be taken up. We also
do a variety of psychometric testing. We are a fast growing business that is looking for the right people to
build for longevity.
