Actuarial Graduate (Life)

The UK Graduate Programme is one of the best ways of starting a career at Hannover Re, the third-largest reinsurer in the world. At Hannover Re, you’ll find that we are not like other reinsurers. We are more flexible, more innovative, and less afraid to challenge conventional wisdom. We pride ourselves on being Somewhat Different.

About the Programme

The four-year programme is aimed at attracting talented graduates (including those about to graduate) with a minimum of an upper second class (2:1) degree in a mathematical subject and a keen interest in taking ownership of our company's success from the start.

Business Development

Mutually profitable long-term partnerships are at the heart of our business development strategy.

Graduates will learn the value of data, using the latest research in health and medicine to price more accurately and manage our risks.

Corporate Actuarial

By putting a value on our business, graduates will learn what really drives our profitability. We use the latest actuarial modelling software to project future cash flows of our business for reporting, and to provide management information used to steer our business. Graduates will also help to ensure we are ahead of the latest regulatory and accounting developments.
