Lateral entry for engineers

The know-how of engineers is of crucial importance to our work as a reinsurer, particularly when it comes to covering technical risks and settling related claims. New large-scale projects such as wind farms, skyscrapers or power plants – just as many smaller but not necessarily less challenging undertakings can only be properly assessed with appropriate technical expertise.

That is why we have offered a structured and systematic induction programme for engineers with professional experience for a number of years. In 24 months, we provide you with the qualifications you need to take on responsible positions in underwriting or claims management in the area of reinsurance – including foreign assignment, further training and the exchange of knowledge within a team of experts. In any case, you have the chance to offer your technical expertise from the very beginning.

What you will need?

An engineering degree from a post-secondary institution and initial relevant professional experience in your field of specialisation – if possible in the field of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical/process engineering, plant/power plant building or civil engineering. Ideally, you have already accumulated experience with renewable energies, water supply, petrochemical facilities or infrastructure projects along your career path. You offer analytical thought, take a solutions-oriented approach to your work and, with your strong sense of commitment and outstanding team spirit, are highly successful in achieving the goals set.

On a personal level, you have a personality that takes pleasure in decision-making, are a skilled negotiator, are client conscious and self-assured. You consider long-term foreign assignments at one of our 50 locations around the world to be a welcome challenge. This is where you can put your proficient language skills, at least in English, to work or refresh and refine them by taking advantage of our language courses.

We offer the programme at regular intervals. We advertise openings in our job market. You can directly apply for a suitable vacant position there.

So many challenges
