Country Manager (Operations) - France

Scroll to content
Every year millions of EUR of personal accident insurance compensation go unclaimed in Europe! Why so?

One of the main reasons is that it is extremely difficult to go through the insurance claiming process, which requires both time, knowledge and a lot of patience.

With Insurello, there is no need to understand insurance-specific language, be equipped with plenty of time, or have a specific background. We want to help all people claim their accident insurance compensation instantly online and change the insurance landscape for the better. Our vision is to rebalance the power between customers and the insurance companies, enabling fair compensation for all.

Insurello is growing at a rapid pace, and now we are looking for an ambitious and organised Country Manager to help us to set up and manage Insurello in France. So, Maria (Talent Acquisition Specialist) and I, Lukas (Expansion Manager), look forward to getting to know how Insurello  could be a match to your interests and experience! 

The role:  

This is a unique opportunity and the very first role we are opening in France! The office will be located in the Paris metropolitan area, and the position will commence during winter 2021. Our Expansion team in Sweden consists of 8 amazing individuals who will provide support and mentorship throughout your journey, as well as we have experience of establishing  a new office in Denmark. Nevertheless, your own proactive ideas, the expertise of the French market, and operational experience will be crucial for the success of Insurello in France! 

Please note that the role will be a very hands-on involvement in replicating Insurello in France, and the total team will consist of a maximum of 15 people by the end of 2021. Therefore, we are interested in hearing how you can build an effective team and successful operations from close proximity rather than coordinating instructions to hundreds of subordinates. 

To succeed and thrive in your role,

it is determining that you are: 

  • hands-on self-starter and entrepreneurially minded
  • very strong in optimising the processes and identifying the patterns
  • have leadership experience not from knowing the theories but from leading teams. Moreover, you have the ability not only operate in but shape a fast-growing environment where the sky is the limit, and the level of uncertainty is high
  • excited to work in and build a high-paced start-up with a higher purpose.

Also, your background and capabilities are at least:

  • 2-3 years of similar experience in a highly demanding role (such as a VC-funded start-up in a growth stage, strategy consulting, investment bank,  B2C digital service company or building a customer service organisation. Ideally, you ventured your own start-up or have experience of designing operations from scratch). Please note that "the more experience you have the better" is not a case. Your background has to be relevant but does not have to be extensive. 
  • full proficiency in French and English
  • thinking globally acting locally.

Does it sound like you? 🤩 Here is a little more about exciting responsibilities that are part of the role: 

  • Building the customer service organisation in France basically from scratch, recruiting, forming, and leading operational teams
  • Building all customer service processes and systems
  • Have a key responsibility for Insurello's customer service team performance in France (i.e. decreasing average claim handling time, NPS etc.) Together with our product team in HQ, optimising conversion rates and quality of the results
  • Provide insights to the HQ team for building and optimising the French product and marketing activities
  • Ensuring good relationships with French insurance companies and authorities.

NB! We hire for capabilities, potential, personality, and a fit with our culture rather than a specific professional background or education. We are open to being convinced why you are the right candidate!

Who are we in Insurello?

As of now, we have helped more than 80 000 people claim their insurances through our platform, and the user count is growing by the hour!

We have built a winning team of ~80 awesome and highly motivated Insurellians based in Stockholm, shortly expanding to other markets. During the first half of 2020, we have doubled the team, continuing growing through this turbulent year.  

We are convinced that we have a product that will aid millions of people and change the sluggish insurance industry. At the same time, we know that the key to success is the right people, working together in a functioning team, always having fun, and getting challenged continuously. We are growing, and that means there are plenty of opportunities to influence things, grow and develop in an ambitious and accelerated way!

Guided by our core values of being reliable, progressive and helpful, we believe that we are:

💙 Not perfect but we strive to improve ourselves, our product and our brand to help more people get more fair compensations;

💙 Genuinely passionate about what we do individually but also as cross-functional teams;

💙 Striving for stimulating and fun work environment, where we believe in freedom under individual responsibility and taking ownership of our actions;

💙 Problem-solvers and curious minds not afraid to implement ideas and experiment.
