My client is a Dublin based General Insurer who are expanding their team to include an Insurance Risk Specialist. This is a brand new position and you will play a leading role in the embedding of risk management framework throughout the organisation. The role will report to the CRO and will involve technical and actuarial aspects of risk management including risk appetite, ALM, underwriting, pricing, claims management and reserving.

  • Production of high quality reports to the Chief Risk Officer

The level of the role is relatively open with the ideal candidate being either  a trainee, part qualified or nearly qualified actuary with strong communication skills.
