Your development opportunities at Munich Re
As one of the world’s leading reinsurers, we are always preparing for challenges ahead. The best way to do that is to empower our people to grow – their skills, their careers and their expertise.
A continuous learning curve gives you an edge wherever you stand in your career
The people who join Munich Re are keenly aware of how the world around us is changing – and how these changes affect endeavours in society and business. It’s their understanding of how the world works that sets us apart from the competition. Because it fuels our exploration of insurability and our drive to create better and innovative risk-related solutions.
We have built an environment that thrives on lifelong learning, career ownership and is not limited by borders or cultures. We provide our people with the tools they need to drive their careers.

It was a highly rewarding experience. I learnt how to put a plan into action and collaborate with colleagues in a foreign work and cultural environment.
Own and manage your career
As widely diverse as career goals may be, career paths at Munich Re are just as varied. We do not expect career to progress in a straight line – a step to the side, or even backtracking, can yield rich development opportunities. As a Munich Re employee, you have access to local and global development programmes and training courses for all levels to design your career path in line with your aims and ambitions.
What does developing a career mean for you?
As a Munich Re employee you can choose your career path. You may want to take on more responsibility, add a qualification or grow your leadership skills. Maybe you’d rather not manage others. You can deepen your expertise, expand your knowledge to a new area or broaden your perspective, instead. The freedom to shape your work identity is what makes Munich Re a great workplace.
Thanks to quality development programmes and a thriving learning culture, we regularly fill our management and expert positions by hiring from inside Munich Re.
