A big focus for Urban Jungle is partnering with a range of businesses who are able to introduce their customers to our products. It could be a FinTech helping people save money on their insurance, a PropTech adding insurance into their journey, or a price comparison website helping customers find the best deal. As we grow and launch new products, the opportunity for us to find great partners is expanding and this role will be key to ensuring we do this successfully.

- Working closely with our Partnerships Manager to ensure the success of new partner integrations and/or bringing new products to our existing partners.
- Working with existing partners to understand how they can improve their performance and customer experience, as well as continuing to build our relationships with the people there.
- Collaborating with team members from across the business to iterate on and improve our partnerships proposition and technology.
We’re looking for someone who:
- Has 1-3 years of professional experience working in a high growth environment with client facing and project management experience.
- Is well-rounded, able to work across a range of topics and think commercially.
- Is easy-going and a natural people person who can build relationships quickly.
- Is a do-er and problem solver who can understand partners’ problems and how Urban Jungle can help solve them.
- Has great written and verbal communication skills and an eye for detail.

Bonus if you:
- Have a proven track record of successfully working with a wide range of stakeholders (both internal and external).
