  • Anywhere


Aviva is on a mission to make things simpler for our customers and people. Our ambition is to build an outstanding service that is low on customer effort and high on customer satisfaction. We are aiming to automate and digitise our processes, but improving our understanding of the data is essential to a successful transformation.

This is where the Business Domain Modelling (BDM) team comes in! Our team specialises in building business focused, system-agnostic conceptual and logical data models. We break Aviva into small, manageable areas of interest and use Agile principles to develop the models and refine them over time allowing us to focus on the most important initiatives. Through the modelling process we develop a common language that is accessible to everyone, helping to define robust requirements and build efficient solutions. We aim to gain an unprecedented level of understanding into the complicated industry we work in and assist a wide variety of people across the organisation to make our colleagues as productive as possible.

The Data Modeller role is hands-on with responsibility for defining business domains and developing data models to support them. You will work closely with a variety of business and technical teams to gain new insights into how the business operates.

  • Engage with data modellers, data architects and other data professionals to continually improve the data modelling landscape

  • Good communication ability with all business and technology focused colleagues at any level of the organisation
  • Inquisitive problem solver with a flair for lateral thinking and a passion for data
  • Knowledge of Domain-Driven Design (DDD) and DAMA would be beneficial but not essential

  • A competitive salary depending on skills, experience, and qualifications
  • Generous defined contribution pension scheme
  • Annual performance related bonus and pay review
