About Swiss Re

At Swiss Re we combine experience with creative thinking and cutting-edge expertise to create new opportunities and solutions for our clients. This is possible thanks to the collaboration of our 15,000 employees across the world.

We offer a flexible working environment where curious and adaptable people thrive. Are you interested in joining us?


About the role 

In times of uncertainty, the ability to identify future trends has never been more important. Are you eager to learn and understand more about the medical, healthcare, societal and lifestyle factors that drive long-term changes in the global insurance industry? A highly motivated and curious person, you would help us as we investigate a wide range of topics from the individual outcomes of health forecasting, to mortality research, cancer & heart attack rates and the COVID-19 pandemic.

You will apply your quantitative and qualitative analytical skills to the latest research trends. After analysing your results, you would help us to communicate this to a wide range of audiences, both internally and externally. You will be expected to work independently but will of course have support and mentorship from the project coach and project sponsor and learn from others in the team as well.

This position would suit a person who is looking to bring their knowledge of life and/or data science, analysis and current trends into a fast-paced business with a real-world impact.

We identify and analyse structured/unstructured datasets throughout the world that provide insights on health trends and developments. We establish effective partnerships and collaborations with universities, data providers and research organisations on a global basis.


About you

  • You have already gained some experience or understanding of the medical, societal and lifestyle drivers that impact morbidity/mortality, which would be highly preferable.
  • You are comfortable working in a team and independently, with experience in managing, prioritising and time management of multiple tasks.
