The catastrophe modelling group at JBA currently comprises two teams, one focused on business development and client support, the other on long-term cat model development.  We seek to form a third team within the group, whose aim will be to focus on work requiring a few days or weeks of effort.  The role will involve working alongside team leaders of the existing teams and leading small-scale project work that arises on a timeframe of a few hours to a few weeks.  The work is expected to include catastrophe model portfolio analysis, post-event reporting and analysis and provision of analytical services against JBA’s hazard maps and models.

The role will suit an individual who is a capable team leader and has experience within re/insurance industry.  You will be a self-motivated person comfortable working as part of a team or independently and capable of innovative thinking in a challenging business environment.  You will have excellent organisation, project management and collaborative skills and have a sound technical understanding of cat models and familiarity with the services commonly provided by modelling companies to re/insurance clients.  Excellent communication and writing skills and the ability to build strong relationships with both colleagues and clients is required.
