Our client is looking for a research analyst to investigate and write a wide variety of articles on topics relating to property/casualty insurance. The ideal candidate has the ability to do “deep dives” into an issue, producing quality white papers, yet can quickly pivot to write articles and blog posts on tight deadlines.
About you: You have the mind of an insurance professional and the soul of a journalist. You ideally have 5+ years of experience in property/casualty and have experience writing in a wide variety of formats, from white papers to PowerPoint to Twitter. You can write vividly yet accurately on complex topics while meeting tight deadlines (e.g. – TODAY, not TOMORROW). You are comfortable explaining quantitative information. You have the ability to travel to report at three to five conferences a year.
Computer skills: Obviously you know Word, because you are a writer. You must also know Excel, because insurance is a numbers business and much of your writing will be accompanied by graphs and charts. You should also know PowerPoint or be ready to learn it right away. If you’ve worked with data visualization software – great, you can teach us!
