Business Development Manager - Reinsurance

We are the global leaders in flood risk management. Our revolutionary Global Flood Model is the first of its kind in the industry and we need an experienced Business Development professional to join our busy and expanding team, ensuring the successful roll out of our world-leading data and helping to shape our future.

The position

As a Business Development Manager, you will be responsible for building and nurturing a pipeline of new opportunities and supporting our revenue targets. Working with a cross collaborative team of model and mapping experts, you’ll help build awareness of our catastrophe models, flood hazard maps and services. You’ll also work with our wider Business Development team to help define and develop our product roadmap, making sure we meet our client needs.

You’ll need to be commercially minded and a good communicator to build trusting relationships with prospects and clients. You’ll enjoy working both alone and as part of the team, and be organised, adaptable and capable of innovative thinking in a challenging business environment. A typical week might include negotiating contracts, establishing product marketing strategies and acting as the voice of the client within our product development process. As a result, you’ll need excellent numeracy, presentation and report writing skills, attention to detail, and to be comfortable with innovative technology.

Previous experience using catastrophe models within the re/insurance industry and CII qualifications is highly desirable. However, we will provide training for any high-quality candidates who we consider a good fit for the team.

The job will be based in the UK, preferably at our new head office in North Yorkshire, set in stunning surroundings (watch our video to get a taste) with easy access to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park; however location may be negotiable for the right candidate.

The Package

In return, JBA offers a competitive market salary, a comprehensive benefits package and flexible working arrangements. JBA is committed to helping employees continue their professional development, so you’ll also receive a generous training budget each year as well as support in achieving professional memberships.

Our team is made of up of some of the best technical minds in the industry, so you’ll be supported by the experts. We’re also a friendly bunch, with lunchtime walks in the countryside and after work socials a regular occurrence, from curry nights to go-karting.
