Vocational training - Munich Re

"They took me seriously from the first day"

Veenet Muthraja completed his vocational training at Munich Re. Today, he is a junior underwriter and serves international clients in the transport segment.

“After earning my advanced-level credentials, I wanted to work in a reputed international company that gave me the opportunity to contribute my interest in foreign languages, business and current events around the world. That's when I found Munich Re, a group of companies with a long-standing tradition and established name in the business world. The fact that my vocational training gave me the opportunity to become familiar with a large number of reinsurance departments in only two years reinforced my intention to start my career path here. However, it was the fact that at Munich Re they took ample time to answer my questions relating to the vocational training and even arranged a meeting with a former vocational training participant that really convinced me that Munich Re was the right employer for me. Then I knew that as a school leaver my concerns would also be taken seriously.

“Today, I collaborate with lawyers, economists, mathematicians and nautical experts in a diverse interdisciplinary team, which was exactly what I hoped to do. The collegial interaction with my co-workers, where each individual contributes his or her strengths in working towards a common goal helps me to learn more every day.

“Everyday work offers just as much variety. Together with my colleagues, I offer reinsurance to the transport departments of our clients at Lloyd’s of London, one of the oldest insurance markets. In addition to contractual negotiations, regular business trips and meetings with clients are also part of everyday work. The continual improvement of our work results also plays a key role. For instance, I organise training programmes for both clients and colleagues. The reinsurance business fascinates me because we are able to assess global changes and trends, and then develop solutions that help effectively deal with their consequences.”
