Xcede's Data Science recruitment team are working with one of the world's largest insurance and reinsurance companies who have built a talented 20+ person Data Science team. They are now looking to add an experienced Lead Data Scientist / Data Science Manager who can manage a sub-division of this team, whilst remaining hands on.

The Data Science projects are still at an early stage, so there are a lot of "low hanging fruit", with the chance to have a multi-million pound impact. However they have already identified over 50 use cases for ML across the organisation, several of which have already been worked on and put into production. The team work on a wide range of projects including fraud detection, retention, NLP, geospatial work, pricing, portfolio management, litigation strategies, and several others.

The team is being led by a fantastic Head of Data Science, and has great support from C-level. Although the team is a central team to the FTSE 100 organisation, they are keen to drive a "start-up mentality" for the Data Science unit.

Requirements:
*MSc or PhD in Statistics, Machine Learning, Mathematics, or a similar scientific field
*3+ years commercial experience
*Experience managing or mentoring other Data Scientists
*Machine Learning experience
*Open-source programming skills (Python, R)
*Strong communication and presentation skills
