During the 18-month trai­nee pro­gramme you will experience first-hand a range of IT departments at Hannover Re and also learn about the business of reinsurance. Each period of training lasts between two and four months.

Your first stop will be in our IT unit for Enterprise Architecture: not only will you get to know the information, software and technology architecture of a highly complex IT landscape used around the world, you will also learn to appreciate their value for our business partners. We will draw up the planning for your other training visits jointly with you. A period of training on the underwriting side, our core business, is obligatory – as is a stay of up to three months at one of our international locations.
