We’re looking for a Policy Assistant to coordinate and help with projects relating to helping our members support good consumer outcomes across varied policy areas in insurance and long-term savings. Currently, were working on things like tackling affordability challenges with insurance and making customer communications easier to understand.

We welcome people who are new to insurance (most of us were when we joined!) – as well as those with experience.

What’s the job?

  • Monitor, research and analyse relevant information to help us formulate persuasive policy positions.

  • Complete the administrative tasks relating to the running of ABI’s Consumer Advisory Group and Consumer Committee, such as coordinating and setting timelines for input, undertaking research and drafting content.

  • Compile internal and external updates, including putting together the updates for a regular newsletter.

  • Undertake consumer policy research to help colleagues understand our policy positions.

  • Work with the Public Affairs team to understand and the political context of our policy work.

What skills do you need?

  • Making the technical accessible – you can summarise information in a way that is accessible for everyone.

  • Efficiency – organisation and high attention to detail come naturally to you.

  • Communication – your written communication is of a high standard and you have a good sense of how to build and manage your working relationships.

  • Curiosity – you might not have even thought of working in policy before, but you’re keen to develop knowledge on insurance and long-term savings issues.

Throughout the interview and assessment process, we will be looking for you to demonstrate our values; We are Brave; We take Ownership; We are Appreciative; We are Human and We are Curious.
