Senior Enterprise Risk Manager
Do you aspire to become Chief Risk Officer, Transformation Manager or Executive Assistant of the Regional Chief Executive Officer? Are you ambitious and want to make an impact?
Those are few exemplar positions risk team members were promoted to during the last 3 years.
Being part of the Risk Management team at Allianz offers great possibilities to contribute to the strategy of the company, balancing risks and performance, being regularly exposed to senior executives incl. CEO and CFO, and participating in projects that shape our company. There are also many opportunities to dive into qualitative or quantitative analysis on solvency as well as all the risks present in the balance sheet.
Guess what? YES, we are hiring and looking for new talented colleagues.
The Regional Risk Management function represents a key building block in protecting the company and its balance sheet while supporting risk/return considerations and monitoring emerging Operational and IT risks. Given the nature of our business in the Benelux region, the full risk universe is covered (life to non-life, financial to strategic). It’s an expert international community where hierarchy and having no opinion are not desired.
We enjoy cross-functional exchange in diverse teams. We embrace a modern style of working and the motivation of each and every member of the community is our key interest. We make mistakes to learn, speak our minds, work hard, laugh hard and wear colorful socks/minds! Do you dare to?
Let's introduce ourselves:
Allianz has been the number 1 insurer worldwide for years. Something we are proud of, but it is easier to get there than to stay. We work very hard for this every day. We believe it is very important to maintain the good relationship with our brokers and even improve it where possible. Every day again. Allianz has therefore deliberately chosen to market our products and services exclusively through professional brokers.
In Belgium, Allianz is therefore one of the major players in the insurance market. We are with more than a thousand colleagues in Belgium and that number doubles in our Dutch colleagues.
