As a member of our Munich based Group Reporting team you will contribute your expertise to the financial reporting for European Swiss Re holdings and (re)insurance companies, ensuring compliance with both the risk and control framework and audit requirements.
One of your key tasks will be the preparation of the US GAAP accounting statements for the monthly, quarterly and annual reporting cycles by working closely with colleagues from other Swiss Re locations. Based on your good understanding of foreign exchange handling and insurance/investment accounting principles, you will assess the impact of complex transactions on the financial statements of the entities under your responsibility. You will participate in finance related projects targeted at enhancing current reporting practices and at standardizing processes among the individual reporting entities. The preparation of quarterly management reports also falls under your remit.
You are a certified accountant / controller or have a equivalent education (BA, MA) with a minimum of 3 years' experience in a group accounting/controlling environment. Solid knowledge of US GAAP reporting standards and the preparation of consolidated financial statements is a must, as is the ability to work in a target driven environment, under tight deadlines and on your own initiative. You can rely on your strong IT skills, particularly in regards of databases and MS Excel and you communicate convincingly in both English and German. Sound analytical skills and team spirit top off your profile.
This is your opportunity to join Swiss Re Group - one of the world's leading wholesale providers of reinsurance, insurance and other innovative forms of insurance-based risk transfer. Our business at Swiss Re is about understanding and analysing the major risks that concern the world - from natural catastrophes to climate change, from ageing populations to cybercrime. We combine experience with expertise and innovative thinking to create new opportunities and solutions for our clients. And we enable the risk-taking essential to enterprise and progress. This is only possible with around 10,000 truly exceptional Swiss Re people across our group worldwide.
