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

About the Team
We are a new team of underwriters who 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.
