Credit Control Analyst

Ipswich, UK

At AXA XL we solve today's complex risks to drive tomorrow's innovation. We see our careers with AXA XL as a chance to unleash our potential globally. Cultivate expertise. Collaborate constantly. Analyse deeper. Dream bigger.

This is an exciting and rewarding permanent role ideal for those looking to work within the insurance industry. Joining AXA XL as a Credit Control Analyst is a great foundation step to launch your career within this field. Whether you have some basic credit control experience and are ready to take the next step up, want to change your direction or are looking for your first step on the ladder we have plenty of support available to help you take that next step.

The successful applicant will join the UK Credit Control Team at a particularly exciting time. After a hugely successful 2021, the focus has switched to how we can power the business faster and improve credit control service delivery on behalf of UK underwriters. The role will entail significant collaboration both internally and externally and will offer the candidate an opportunity to learn about the insurance industry and AXA XL.

You will be based in our newly refurbished Ipswich office; however, we are excited to have implemented our Smart Working initiative offering a hybrid way of working, combining both remote and office working.

Ipswich is an idyllic rural location, with good transport links to London and just 20 minutes from the coast. The AXA XL office is easily accessible, only a 10-minute walk from the train station and has the benefit of free onsite car parking as well as a subsidised staff restaurant - we even give our employees an allowance for lunch! We are a short walk from the picturesque waterfront, an ideal place for a lunchtime stroll with colleagues and there are plenty of good restaurants to choose from for a bite to eat on the way home or perhaps before a trip to the local theatre or cinema. Our office is newly refurbished, it's modern and bright featuring up to date technologies, and plenty of collaboration areas to meet with colleagues to share ideas and get together.

At AXA XL, Sustainability is integral to our business strategy. In an ever-changing world, AXA XL protects what matters most for our clients and communities. We know that sustainability is at the root of a more resilient future. Our 2023-26 Sustainability strategy, called "Roots of resilience", focuses on protecting natural ecosystems, addressing climate change, and embedding sustainable practices across our operations.

Our Pillars:
  • Valuing nature: How we impact nature affects how nature impacts us. Resilient ecosystems - the foundation of a sustainable planet and society - are essential to our future. We're committed to protecting and restoring nature - from mangrove forests to the bees in our backyard - by increasing biodiversity awareness and inspiring clients and colleagues to put nature at the heart of their plans.
  • Addressing climate change: The effects of a changing climate are far reaching and significant. Unpredictable weather, increasing temperatures, and rising sea levels cause both social inequalities and environmental disruption. We're building a net zero strategy, developing insurance products and services, and mobilizing to advance thought leadership and investment in societal-led solutions.
  • Integrating ESG: All companies have a role to play in building a more resilient future. Incorporating ESG considerations into our internal processes and practices builds resilience from the roots of our business. We're training our colleagues, engaging our external partners, and evolving our sustainability governance and reporting.
  • AXA Hearts in Action: We have established volunteering and charitable giving programs to help colleagues support causes that matter most to them, known as AXA XL's "Hearts in Action" programs. These include our Matching Gifts program, Volunteering Leave, and our annual volunteering day - the Global Day of Giving.
