Head of People Risk & Governance
At Aviva, insurance isn’t just about finance, underwriting and actuarial roles. These are important, but we also move with the times and we have a lot of unexpected roles such as software development and data analytics which keep us looking forwards and improving what we do for our customers.
Insurance is also a noble profession – what could be better than protecting the things that are most important to people? I started my career here as an Office Assistant. Now I lead on managing people risks across the business, making sure we are always improving our risk and control environment. Ultimately, it’s about making sure we’re always able to deliver effectively to our customers. It’s been quite a journey – and good leadership is hard work. But it can be very rewarding too.
