Catlin Australia was established in 2004 to offer brokers direct access to a wide range of insurance and reinsurance products. There are now two offices in the country employing 35 staff and we are growing all the time.
As an employer we can offer the opportunity to work for a successful, growing company in a dynamic environment. If you work for us, we will support you with training, development, and the freedom to carve out the career you want no matter where you start from.
In Australia we employ in these business functions: underwriting, claims, actuarial, finance, operations, IT and administration.
