Catastrophe Risk Analyst – RMS Zurich (Graduate position)

RMS is the world's leading provider of mathematical models and software for the 
quantification and management of catastrophe risks. The RMS models and 
consulting services are used by hundreds of insurance and reinsurance 
companies, hedge funds, corporations and governments to assess a wide-range of 
natural and man-made perils such as hurricane, earthquake, flood, windstorm, 
terrorism and disease pandemic.

RMS is now hiring for its Risk Analyst (RA) Graduate Training Scheme, which 
lies within the RMS Client Development organization. This scheme is designed to 
be preparation for a career in risk management, by providing a solid grounding 
in approaches to catastrophe risk quantification and management for the 
insurance industry and capital markets. It is a twelve month scheme, followed 
by permanent employment.

The scheme includes four to six weeks of structured training, and secondments 
through various RMS teams. A secondment to the global product service team 
involves training on RMS’s key products and services.  There is also potential 
for a client placement. The structured training is delivered by a number of RMS 
colleagues, including Executive team members, group leads and previous 
graduates of the Training Scheme, all of whom have particular areas of 
expertise and knowledge. The training typically takes the form of presentations 
with follow-up projects and exercises. The client placement would involve the 
opportunity to work on-site with an RMS client, joining their teams of 
catastrophe modelling staff, and would include first-hand experience of how 
RMS’s clients employ RMS technologies within their underwriting, portfolio 
management and capital allocation processes.

After successfully completing the training, the RA will be transitioned into 
the Zurich regional service team to support the Account Managers in their 
tasks. The RA will have exposure to clients and will develop a deep 
understanding of both RMS products and models in the area of Natural 
Catastrophes, pandemic disease and man-made disasters, and also of the 
insurance and reinsurance industry. The RA will advise clients on the 
applications and usage of RMS models, applications and services, answer client 
questions, ensure client satisfaction and will coordinate interactions 
internally and externally.

Essential Requirements:

• A keen interest in natural perils and risk management • A quantitative based 
MSc in Meteorology or related degree, including Geography, Hydrology, Physics 
or Mathematics • Experience with MS Excel • Excellent written and oral
