We’re hiring!

Aon is currently recruiting an Associate Director to join our Technical Excellence Broking team in Singapore.

About Aon

Aon Plc is a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions. Our 50,000 colleagues in 120 countries empower results for clients by using proprietary data and analytics to deliver insights that reduce volatility and improve performance.

At Aon, you’ll be part of a team which will support and inspire you and provide the opportunities and resources to develop your skills. It’s an environment which encourages you to achieve your best - together we’ll empower results.

The Opportunity

Recognizing client and business demands for specialist policy wordings support, Aon is looking to onboard a Wordings Specialist to join a rapidly growing Technical Team in Asia, providing guidance on policy coverage and re/insurance issues to support Aon’s frontline brokers at direct and reinsurance level. The role will involve exposure to several business lines:

  • Property: commercial property, industrial special risks and business interruption.
  • Casualty & Liability: comprehensive general liability, products liability, products recall, financial loss, cyber risks.
  • Marine: marine hull and cargo, stock throughput, port & terminals liability, offshore energy.
  • Specialty: personal accident, terrorism, political violence, (onshore) energy & mining, construction power & infrastructure.

As global insurance markets harden, and underwriters look to tighten up wordings in a time of change, the role of the wordings specialist is evolving. In a service business, Aon constantly strives to anticipate the rapidly changing needs of its clients and develop new and optimal solutions to meet those needs. Aon’s Asia Technical Team has a vital role supporting Aon’s future business growth in Asia, new product development and client service.

This opportunity requires a candidate with a solid track record of relevant experience and the self-confidence to support Aon’s brokers and clients from day one. The successful candidate will be willing to assume responsibility and support teamwork across different business groups and in-country operations in Asia. The role offers opportunities to move ahead and develop a career path based in Singapore.
