Would you like to work at Hannover Re but have yet to find a suitable vacancy in our job portal? You can also send a speculative application.

Application in Hannover

We recommend the following procedure for a speculative application in Hannover:

  • Browse our description of the departments and read the reports from employees about their jobs. This gives you a good impression of the different tasks which Hannover Re offers you.
  • Look at fields of study to see which subjects are of particular interest to us and which areas you could work in with your qualifications.
  • Register on our applicants’ portal and use the link on the right to ‘speculative application.’ Give comprehensive information about your skills and qualifications in the application form and attach a letter detailing what exactly you would like to do at Hannover Re. Please also let us know what your earliest starting date would be and what your current period of notice is.
  • If we are interested in your application but do not currently have a suitable job for you, we keep your application in our pool of applicants for six months. As soon as we have a vacancy which may suit you, we contact you via email. If you are interested in the position, we pass your information on to the appropriate division and you may be invited to an interview.


Please use only the applicants’ portal for your application in Hannover.

If you send us your application by post or email we will ask you to submit it again via the applicants’ portal. The reason for this is that we process all applications via this portal and use it to keep in touch with you.
