Professions with a mathematical background

Do you feel at home in the world of numbers?

If you have completed a degree with a mathematical focus or have several years of professional experience as a mathematician – and this has sparked your interest in stochastics, statistics, or mathematical optimisation – we can offer you a wide range of opportunities to join us.

Working as a mathematician

Employees with a background in (economic or financial) mathematics can choose from a wide range of roles. These include analysing insurance markets, designing reinsurance solutions, developing actuarial models, and conducting risk analysis. Communicating with colleagues and primary insurers, brokers and researchers is also an important part of the job.

"One of the major advantages of Hannover Re is the variety of tasks available to mathematicians. These include risk modelling, the development of individual reinsurance solutions as well as more technical tasks such as the development and provision of internal software tools. There is something for everyone, whatever their personal preferences."
