Job description, responsibilities and duties

This is your opportunity to join Swiss Re Group - one of the world's leading wholesale providers of reinsurance, insurance and other innovative forms of insurance-based risk transfer. Our business at Swiss Re is about understanding and analyzing the major risks that concern the world - from natural catastrophes to climate change, from ageing populations to cybercrime. We combine experience with expertise and innovative thinking to create new opportunities and solutions for our clients. And we enable the risk-taking essential to enterprise and progress. This is only possible with around 10,000 truly exceptional Swiss Re people across our group worldwide.

We are building a new team of 5- 7 underwriters who will support several markets across the EMEA region on the business side, including cases assessment and various client needs. We work closely with regional and cross-functional partners.

Swiss Re Life & Health has very high-reaching goals, and this is your chance to join a dynamic team supporting those efforts right across the European region. It is also your opportunity to benefit from the extensive skills development program which Swiss Re can offer.

Underwriting, essentially the individual assessment of risk for life and living benefit applicants, is a core strength of Swiss Re. As an underwriter based in Bratislava you will support all the activities of our teams based in the major cities across Europe. Following a period of intensive training, you will use our world leading underwriting manual, and an extensive network of support experts, to make recommendations on those individual risks which insurance companies refer to Swiss Re. As your skills grow, you will also participate in other services which we provide to our clients, including reporting, product development, training material preparation, and, subject to language skills, translation.

You will be responsible for running the following:
•Registration of underwriting cases via our administrative system
•Assessment of medical and financial documents (blood tests, cardiovascular reports… and accounting documents) to establish a recommendation with the help of our underwriting tool and Medical Officers
•Preparation and/or onsite support for client facing activities, such as trainings and audits
•Support for translation of our underwriting-related tools
