Your new company
A leading FTSE listed company in the City, specialising in providing insurance and reinsurance services to clients across the professional spectrum. With the power of household brand value, great career development opportunities and a market leading benefits package, this company is widely considered one of the best in the insurance market.

Your new role
A senior reinsurance focused role within the company's corporate and reinsurance team, you will be working in a highly respected team that has both a technical reinsurance and more transactional aspect. You will act as a fluid resource to the business, focusing on core reinsurance matters, that will include both international and domestic matters. While this will constitute the bulk of the workload, you will also support on international M&A, corporate and advisory matters. You will regularly interact with senior stakeholders across this prestigious business (including C-suite figures) as you build your profile as a reliable advisor and lawyer.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be an experienced, UK qualified lawyer with demonstrable reinsurance experience, either from a reputable practice firm or in-house competitor. You will have minimum 3 PQE (as a guide only), and a combination of contentious and non-contentious reinsurance experience. You may come from a reinsurance disputes background, or indeed a more transactional background that involves bulk purchase annuities, etc. Understanding of the cultures and facets of a leading listed organisation will be useful, as will a flexible and robust attitude to the work. An appreciation of the transaction value of the role will also be key, as this role is not purely reinsurance focused (80%).

What you'll get in return
The company has always been recognised as a true leader in its field, and you will carry that gravitas within your profile through your career. There are regular opportunities to continue your career development within different areas of the legal function, and the accessibility to senior stakeholders is unparalleled. Finally, you will be rewarded with a truly exceptional benefits package, that includes not only annual pay reviews and a generous bonus, but also a great pension scheme, a fantastic holiday allowance and significant product discounts.
