Information about the position

Job description, responsibilities and duties

Are you a self-starter, looking for a high exposure opportunity supporting a specific EMEA market(s)? The Market Executive ("ME") has a remarkably diverse set of responsibilities which include overall ownership of the Reinsurance BU results for these markets, and oversight of the internal and external governance responsibilities for the locations. Given the broad and complex responsibilities, the ME requires an executive "right hand" to whom many of the inherent duties of the role can be delegated, particularly those duties which are internally focused.
If you have ambitious drive, like balancing many balls at once and are agile, then we are looking for you! As Strategy & Operations Manager, you will be the right hand to the NCEE ME and support them in achieving their goals but more importantly, getting their region future ready. The teams sit in several locations and you ensure that our client-facing staff gets the support they need to bring in the business. You will also work cross-functionally and virtually with colleagues throughout the region.
Your main tasks will include:
• Support the ME in defining the strategy and closely monitoring its execution (KPIs, dashboard), supporting on critical projects and often taking over the project management
• Build an overview and analyse the business unit with portfolio, productivity, FTE analysis, deal pipeline as well as KPI dashboards
• Manage and control his/her costs, FTEs and budgets. This is done in close collaboration with various functions and the EMEA Strategy & Operations unit
• Create and/or optimise structure in the team and build up a sense of community across the locations (blogs, EES) as well as run the regular team meetings including agenda management and follow-ups
• Prepare the ME for both internal (EMEA MT, RMT) and external (panels, speaker engagements, clients) meetings
• On behalf of the ME, be the go-to person for ORM, Governance, GIA, Risk and tax topics
• Take on initiatives/projects for the markets and push them through to completion
We are looking forward to your application!
You are an outstanding teammate who can navigate ambiguity, planning & steering, FTE and cost metrics, community management for the client teams, preparing your Market Executive for internal and external meetings, ORM / Governance / GIA and tax topics, support with initiatives as well as driving transformation in your unit.
