As Insurance Specialist your primary responsibility is to ensure that Monjasa’s insurance coverage (e.g. P&I, hull & machinery, war risk, cargo, health, travel, real estate, general liability, pollution, automotive) is suitable for the scope of all business activities and their risk appetite. You will identify gaps and overlapping coverage and ensure that ‘what is needed to have’ is fulfilled on a group level. Therefore, you will be in contact with many internal and external stakeholders and be the go-to person on all insurance related matters.

Overall, your areas of focus will be:

  • Ensuring the right coverage and maintaining an overview of insurance policies
  • Review and negotiate policy terms and premiums
  • Review insurance related terms in commercial contracts, tenders etc.
