This role is in Bupa's UK Insurance business and you'll be part of the actuarial team responsible for the pricing and analytics for one or more of our insurance products. We're responsible for developing and delivering the pricing strategy in support of Bupa's strategic goals. This will involve the analysis of the historical performance of the existing portfolio, identifying the drivers of trends and outcomes, putting forward recommended pricing actions, and modelling the likely future impact of these actions.
