Convex is a newly formed international specialty insurer and reinsurer founded by Stephen Catlin and Paul Brand. With operations in London and Bermuda, Convex occupies a unique position in the insurance industry combining unrivalled experience, reputation and a legacy free balance sheet.

Convex is focused on creating a positive environment for all Convexians (that’s what they call themselves) to learn, grow, have fun and do great work with people they like, trust and respect.

They live their values in every facet of their business: Earn our reputation; Straightforward and fair; Determined to improve; Inspired by opportunity; Enjoy being different

The successful applicants will join in specific critical roles within Convex, and will be supported to learn all areas of the business. They will be buddied up with another Convexian to assist them with their transition back to work and to enable them to ask all of those questions over a virtual coffee! A bespoke Career Returners Coaching Programme from Women Returners will provide ongoing support.  Success is a shared goal for all Convexians.
