Job Details

Are you a recognised leader in the field of insurance risk, from either a life or non-life background, seeking to make a difference within a leading-edge consultancy?

Then read on...

This is an exceptional opportunity to join the leadership team of an award-winning firm where you will make a key contribution to ambitious and strategic growth plans of the business.

Building out the risk proposition, your primary focus will be upon the qualitative and non-financial areas of risk management, supplementing the quantitative risk management expertise to provide a complete risk proposition.

Not only will you have the opportunity to help win new client engagements and grow new and existing client relationships, but also to play a key role in delivering assignments, primarily in the area of risk management – covering the UK and, ideally, international markets.

In addition, you will help to anchor wider parts of the firm, including the Risk Transfer, Investment and Digital teams.

A natural thought leader, you will have very strong knowledge of the key areas of risk, including investment / ALM Risk, Own Risk & Solvency Assessment and Stress & Scenario Testing.

Alongside this, you will have very strong knowledge of Solvency II – both in the UK and in Europe – and, ideally, knowledge of equivalent regulatory regimes, e.g. Bermuda.

This is a significant leadership opportunity within a major firm so get in touch now for more information.
