Senior Specialist, Insurance & Reinsurance

We are currently seeking a proactive and motivated Senior Specialist, Insurance and Reinsurance with an excellent eye for detail to join the icare team!

  • Play a crucial role in the reinsurance arrangements of Insurance for NSW
  • Permanent opportunity
  • Attractive Remuneration Package

We have an exciting new role available for someone to join our team and lead the management of a portfolio of reinsurance arrangements of Insurance for NSW.  Focused on providing senior level advice and developing state and public sector wide strategies on insurance issues.

You’ll be working as part of a small team of collaborative, specialised and forward-thinking people who really care about making a difference for people and the NSW community. You will have a mind for getting things done and a heart for people and you will set the bar high through the quality of the work you do and the people-oriented decisions you make.

Focusing on reinsurance risk transfers on behalf of NSW and getting the best outcomes for icare and the state, you’ll bring extensive experience in reinsurance & insurance (preferably in underwriting or broking). We are looking for someone with strong analytical and problem solving skills and experience in assessing outputs from catastrophe modelling. Working closely with stakeholders across all levels both internal and external, your relationship skills will support your success in this role.

It’s an exciting environment where no two days are the same. But on a typical day you might find yourself:

  • Leading the end to end management of a number of specialist classes of reinsurance in consultation the Reinsurance and Insurance Strategy Manager and in alignment to internal governance structures
  • Ensuring a viable reinsurance program is in place which includes insurance/reinsurance, in accordance with government direction, providing adequate protection for the risks, assets and liabilities of the NSW Government
  • Managing all aspects of reinsurance renewal, strategies, process and marketing
  • Conducting evaluation of business operations, service delivery and client need and develop and implement reinsurance enhancements
  • Providing senior level input into planning the strategies and processes to obtain new providers of insurance coverage prior to existing contracts expiring
  • Directing underwriting colleagues, Actuaries and RSP on ensuring all exposure datasets are delivered accurately and on time
  • Directing analytics colleagues on claims dataset requirements ensuring they are delivered accurately and on time.

We’re a new kind of organisation, one that’s as supportive and socially conscious as it is agile and explorative. Our DNA of commercial mind and social heart captures who we are at our core.

If you think you’re the right person for this role, send us your resume (up to 5 pages). Don’t delay as we’re assessing applications as they are received. We’d love to hear how your capabilities, achievements and experience set you apart.

We know our strength comes from the diversity of our people and so we want people with different experiences and backgrounds to apply. We recognise the importance of balance and flexibility and understand that it’s not a one size fits all approach, so we’d be happy to talk about and consider your specific needs.

If there are any accessibility adjustments you need to help you be able to apply for this role, or if you require any further information about the role, please contact Alexandra Morgan on alexandra.morgan@icare.nsw.gov.au for more information.

Please note that you must be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident of Australia or a New Zealand citizen with a current New Zealand passport to apply for this role.
