Risk Management Director


Since you’ve landed on this page, you already know Hedvig is a mover and shaker in insurtech, and think you might have what it takes to join us. As the only loved insurance company in Sweden (in the world?), we’ve proven that it’s possible to disrupt an entire industry with people’s best interest at heart. But our journey is just beginning.

What about the role?

As our business grows, diversifies, and scales across European markets we are looking for a Risk Management Director to lead our first line operational Risk Management function. Your key objective is to enable Hedvig to make the right decisions with risks in mind and thereby enable us to achieve our strategic objectives.

As Risk Management Director, you will be responsible for ensuring that Hedvig’s processes for managing risks are optimized to support rapid scaling while maintaining a high degree of confidence in our own compliance and risk management. In your role, you are also expected to effectively manage risks and compliance activities across the organization. To this end, leadership skills, stellar stakeholder management, and having a hands-on approach will be paramount to your success.

Your responsibilities will include developing and implementing Hedvig’s risk management system and framework to enable our business to manage and identify risks, thereby enabling us to achieve our strategic objectives. Monitoring and reporting of risks in relation to the risk appetite set by the senior leadership team and board of directors. Supporting and guiding the business in strategic business decisions from a risk perspective. Driving integration of risk management in the organization enabling first-line operators to make fast and good quality business decisions, based on correct information and assessment of risks.

What about you?
You are an ambitious person with a strong drive that can help us identify and manage risks by building relationships, collecting opportunities, and implementing solutions
Some years of experience within risk management (preferably at a hyper-growth business/fintech)
Extensive regulatory knowledge (a general insurance background would be our preference) as well as an excellent working knowledge of regulation matters
Demonstrable understanding of risk and controls management, including enterprise risk management frameworks
Straightforward communication approach to be able to translate regulations and provide concise advice relevant to the entire organization
Excellent Swedish and English language skills
Good understanding of Data Protection regulations and third-party supplier/outsourcing arrangements

What about us?
As part of the Hedvig team, you will quickly notice that "general truths" are not accepted without being questioned. We're an enthusiastic group of people who love to challenge each other to find the best way forward. We don't care who says something; we care about what's being said.

We put a lot of effort into building a trusting culture where freedom, collective thinking, and individual ownership have center stage. We're not perfect – far from it – but we talk about and learn from our mistakes and imperfections to improve continuously. And we have a lot of fun along the way! As individuals, as a team, and as a company.

What most processes will look like:
🔥30 minute chat with a member of the Talent Acquisition team to learn more about you – and tell you more about us!
👏 First interview with your potential leader!
📝 Case and case presentation or code test depending on the role
🎩Final interview with one of our founders or leaders.

FYI: We ask all candidates who make it to the first step of the process to complete a Personality and Logical Thinking test in order to understand your profile better. You will get to see your results and hopefully learn more about yourself as well!
