RGA serves clients from operations around the world, delivering expert solutions in individual life reinsurance, individual living benefits reinsurance, group reinsurance, financial solutions, facultative underwriting and product development. Founded in 1973, it is listed on the New York Stock Exchange with total revenue of over $12 billion and more than 2000 employees worldwide. RGA’s mission is to enhance its clients’ prosperity by supporting their financial and risk management capabilities and it is proud to have been recognised for its achievements with regular industry awards.

An opportunity has arisen in the company’s UK & Ireland business for a lawyer of circa 1-3 years’ post qualification experience. Reporting to the Head of Legal for UK & Ireland, you will be joining an outstanding global legal team and play an important part in providing proactive legal advice and support to the senior management team, working alongside the Head of Legal, in the areas of regulation and compliance, as well as a broad range of legal and commercial advice to the business generally. Ideally you will have gained some experience in corporate, commercial and regulatory matters with some experience of the insurance industry or financial services sector more broadly. You will have the opportunity to use and to gain experience of a wide variety of legal and commercial skills in this challenging and rewarding role. RGA continues to grow, so the chance to advise on corporate transactions is always likely.

You will have trained with a leading law firm where you will have gained corporate and commercial experience, ideally with exposure to insurance work. Alternatively, you may already be working in-house in the insurance or financial services sector. The company is looking for someone who is keen to get involved and make a contribution to a high performance, proactive and supportive legal and management team.
