A leading global insurer is looking for an IFRS 17 implementation specialist, to be based in Singapore. This role will be regional in scope, and is a crucial hire for the firm in light of impending regulatory change across the industry.

This role will be commercial in nature, and will involve continuous interaction with colleagues across the business, inclusive of finance, actuarial, IT and operations, as well as global HQ. Whilst the role involves a lot of technical concepts, some at this stage only theoretical, the successful candidate will be tasked with ensuring that the business evolves quickly in its IFRS 17 initiatives.

Given the nature of the role, it is vitally important that you have a good understanding of IFRS concepts, with IFRS 17 being hugely advantageous (IFRS 9 exposure can also be considered). It is likely that you will have worked in an insurance firm for a number of years, although if a candidate can demonstrate their strength for this role having worked in another industry, this can also be considered. You should have demonstrable experience in speaking to stakeholders at all levels, and be comfortable in presentations. The ability to speak more than one language would also be advantageous for this role, although isn't a pre-requisite.

The role will remunerate well, and there will be a clear progression path should you perform well.
