PartnerRe Ltd. is a leading global reinsurer, providing multi-line reinsurance to insurance companies. It is a dynamic, challenging, and rewarding place to work. We are always looking for bright, proactive people with expert knowledge skills, and integrity to join our international team. Our culture is based on trust, responsibility, openness, and initiative, and we pride ourselves on delivering the best possible reinsurance solutions for our clients.

Senior Pricing Actuary, Life & Health - Centralised Pricing Team

We are looking to hire a senior Life & Health (re-)insurance professional to join our Global Pricing team. This is a team that works closely with all regional pricing units and sits at the center of a growing Life and Health business with international responsibility for all lines of life and non-US health business.

You are a recognized expert in the pricing and risk assessment of Life & Health products. You have a strong understanding of the factors that influence profitability and the risk mitigants that should be in place, and are able to take a holistic view.

The role provides the opportunity for exposure to a wide variety of products in diverse markets and you will be expected to make a significant contribution to the enhancement of PartnerRe's Life & Health propositions. You will play a pivotal role as a link between our Regional Pricing Units and the centralized team.

As part of a global team you will be a key person in helping shape and grow the Life & Health business. This is a strategic priority for PartnerRe and provides an opportunity to be at the heart of the action.

Your responsibilities will include:

- Helping to grow the Life & Health business with a sustainable approach
- Developing a high profile within the business and establishing regular contact with key stakeholders and decision makers
- Close collaboration with the European regional unit and other global experts on the pricing and development of new products
- Challenging the underwriting of risk within the regional pricing units in order to encourage better decision making
- Promoting PartnerRe's expertise through targeted marketing efforts, supporting client visits and externally representing and promoting PartnerRe's capabilities
- Ensuring the consistency of PartnerRe pricing methodologies, group level assumptions and standards at a global level
- Reviewing complex and unusual deals, potentially leading on pricing if required
- Sharing of best practice for pricing and product development across the regions.

By working closely with the Chief Pricing Actuary and other team members, you will be part of a centralized team of experience industry professionals seen as adding value and ensuring the Life and Health business grows in a profitable and controlled way.

About you

You are a senior life & health (re-)insurance professional who has a proven track record in protection and/or longevity business. Ideally you will have experience within EMELA (Europe - Middle East - Latin America) with expertise in either Long Term Protection, Disability Income or Longevity. However, experience in other international markets is also valuable. You have the skill, competence and mindset to enable you to add value in areas outside your immediate area of expertise.

As a technically excellent individual you will have the ability to be pragmatic and demonstrate commercial sense. A desire to experience new and challenging areas is a key requirement.

You enjoy collaborating with your colleagues as well as working on your own. Your preference is to be part of an international and multicultural environment, handling diverse tasks, yet always ready to serve the team and meet the business needs. Moreover, you have the following background, skills and mindset:

- A qualified Actuary with at least 8 years of Life and Health (re-)insurance structuring or pricing experience
- A deep knowledge of Life & Health products, distribution and reinsurance structures
- An understanding of capital modelling and profitability metrics
- Experience in Longevity or Disability Income is desirable
- Experience in actuarial projections systems (e.g. AXIS) or statistical software (e.g. R) is desirable
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English. Additional language skills would be an advantage.

What can we offer you

An international environment, where you will be challenged, can learn from other senior specialists and are exposed to multiple lines of our business in a wide range of countries. A structure which fosters empowerment and collaboration with various stakeholders.

In our agile team, your impact really makes a difference and our structure fosters empowerment and collaboration with various partners. As a growing business you will have the opportunity to help shape our team and be an integral part of our success.

The position is based in PartnerRe's Zurich office, but occasional travel to other offices should be expected.
