Willis Towers Watson’s Strategic Risk Consulting is a dedicated team of experts 
spanning across the fields of insurance, science and engineering with the aim 
of providing unrivalled analytical risk advice to our global corporate client 
base. This exciting opportunity comes with various technical challenges which 
are as diverse as the industries we deal in and involves both UK-based and 
international projects. One of the key aspects of this opportunity will be that 
the candidate will be expected to use insurance market recognized vendor Models 
such as RMS (Risk Management Solutions), AIR and EQECAT (RQE Corelogic).

Candidate Requirements:


·         Strong analytical, engineering-, science- and/or mathematical-based 
background with interest in the area of natural hazard risk (including 
earthquake, wind and flood).



·         Experience in using third party catastrophe models such as RMS, AIR 
or RQE and/or a good level of understanding of probabilistic and catastrophe 
modelling concepts.



·         Day to day tasks will include quality assessment of raw data, reviews 
of exposures to Natural Hazards as well as preparation of modelling input 
files, running of market recognized models and the review, interpretation and 
validation of the output in light of underlying modelling assumptions and their 
limitations in respect to retail projects.



·         Knowledge of databases such as SQL or MS Access,  VBA, R, any GIS 
software such as Q-GIS or Arc GIS etc. would be an advantage.


·         Insurance market experience and understanding of policy structures 
for catastrophe risks would be an advantage as well as solid analytical skills, 
including the ability to find ways to use available data sources to answer 
questions and solve problems.



·         Able to communicate scientific, statistical, mathematical, and 
financial concepts to non- technical audiences.



·         Highly motivated team player and able to thrive in a growing 
consultancy team environment.



Key Role Responsibilities:

•                  Support on a wide range of consulting projects involving the 
undertaking of catastrophe risk modelling for our corporate client’s property 
portfolios. The role would also include helping to prepare and present output 
data from the models to support actuarial analyses and underwriting decisions.

•                  Advising our group and where applicable clients on general 
natural hazard issues, in particular those relevant to earthquake, wind and 
flood.

•                  Developing and applying innovative approaches for 
identifying natural hazard risks for our clients, for regions where no 
standardized risk assessment tools or models exist.
