As Allianz Group's specialist corporate insurer, we like to think that Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) is a pretty interesting place to work. From looking after planes, satellites and the world's biggest ships and tallest buildings to handling cyber-attacks, hurricanes and the impact of climate change, when it comes to protecting businesses we have got the major risks fully covered. We even take care of James Bond - on the film set anyway, through our entertainment insurance.

Based in our central London office working in collaboration with the head of content, as the content editor in AGCS' global communications team, you will be right at the heart of the action, producing compelling reading for our external stakeholders, covering news and trends relevant to AGCS' business and wide range of customer segments.

You will plan, research, write and edit stories and reports, working across a range of channels including digital and social content. Ultimately, you will play a key role in helping us to further develop our position as an expert thought leadership commentator on risk management and the insurable risks in our customers' industries.
