Have you already acquired professional experience with other companies, perhaps even in entirely different sectors, and are you now looking to further develop your potential? Hannover Re, as an internationally successful company, offers you opportunities for further growth in a professional, cooperative environment characterised by transparent decision-making and scope for creativity.
Your professional experience may, for example, have been acquired with insurers, banks, management consultants or audit firms. Medical specialists, legal experts or engineers are also invited to contribute their expertise – many paths lead to the reinsurance industry. You are a fit for us if you – like us – have an entrepreneurial mindset, are able to act on your own initiative and are willing to take responsibility. At the same time, you see yourself as a team player and you enjoy working with customers and colleagues from other cultural backgrounds.
We are well aware that reinsurance is a highly specialist business and that many new members of staff start out with no relevant experience. This does not constitute a barrier to your application or your successful development. By way of structured job familiarisation, a strong feedback culture and periods of training spent, for example, in key interface departments, you will get to know our business. What you bring is a marked willingness to learn and the desire to venture beyond the beaten path and question the habitual.
Your experience is sought-after. When you join us as a seasoned professional, you can and should contribute the knowledge – specialist, methodological, process-related – that you have already acquired. We welcome new input and fresh ideas. Not that your own development will stand still either: your own initiative will play a crucial part in deciding whether you position yourself as a technical specialist or as a more broad-based generalist. You can get involved in strategic issues relating to the development of our business, or you can pass on your know-how through in-house specialist training activities or as a designated trainer. We view personnel development as an interplay between supervisor, employee and human resources: in consultation with your supervisor and with the support of Human Resources Management, you define sensible steps and suitable measures for achieving your goals. The focal point here is normally the structured performance review, which is held once a year. For further details about familiarisation and opportunities to improve your skills both on and off the job, please see the section Development opportunities.
We urge you to learn more about our various specialist departments and then decide which field of work most closely fits your abilities and expectations. A quick look at our Job Portal will enable you to make a targeted application.
