Educational and experience requirements for a junior Risk Role

We have junior risk roles available that would be suitable for applicants with varied experience. Our team is currently made up of employees with different educational backgrounds for example; geography, meteorology, mathematics, physics, computer science and economics.

As well as different levels of education ranging from school leavers through to PHD. We’re open to hearing from candidates who are willing to work hard and learn from more experienced team members. Who are willing to take on advice to improve their own knowledge and skills, and ultimately help lead to the success of the team and wider company.


Essential skills for a member of the Brit Risk team

Our risk team is made up of a range of roles, all requiring slightly different expertise and skills. Although there are some must-haves for specific roles, there are essential skills we expect all our team members to have to some degree.

  • A solid foundation / comfort working with numbers is important to help quantify risk.
  • Ability to deal with and embrace ambiguity and change due to the ever-evolving world we work in (whether it be around climate change or cyber risk).
  • Curiosity to continue to develop your own understanding of the various industries we work in.
  • Communication skills and a positive attitude is vital to improve collaboration across the team ability.

Not all skills are required for every role within our department, for more specific roles there will be some additional skills that may be required. Certain roles (particularly capital modelling) are highly technical and typically suit those with a background in mathematical or related subjects. We also have more senior roles that would require the ability to think strategically and communicate with Execs or the Board.
