Work that matters

We deal with some seriously large numbers; claims reserves are one of the largest items on an insurance company’s balance sheet. Our core role is estimating and maintaining these reserves, and analysing the associated profitability of our business. As part of this we must understand the claims process and associated trends, but equally important we need to communicate with the Business units (Pricing, Underwriting, Claims) to both get their input and convey our findings.

You will be part of a team that practices an open workstyle. Based on your experience and competence, you will be given responsible for the estimation of reserves across a number of business classes. You will present your best estimate reserves to business stakeholders every quarter. This will come hand in hand with owning and managing the relationships that come with it, which will include close collaboration with your future colleagues in Pricing, Underwriting, Portfolio Management, and Claims. You will be given significant autonomy in how you interact with internal stakeholders.

The role will also include assist with the team’s other tasks, both regular and ad hoc, such as the monthly booking process.
