Charlotte Ruf

Senior Consultant at Allianz Consulting

My Job as an In-house Consultant:

I joined Allianz Consulting in 2018 as a Junior Consultant and have developed from there to Consultant and now Senior Consultant in 2021. Most of my time is spent working on client projects. Additionally, I also contribute to some internal initiatives, such as further developing our project offerings and providing training to other colleagues and clients.

My daily challenges:

The spectrum of projects that we cover at Allianz Consulting is quite broad, ranging from IT implementation to insurance product development. I am currently more focused on the products side; however, the expertise needed can vary with every project and requires quick learning and adaptation. Aside from client projects, we encourage our Consultants to engage in activities that contribute to Allianz Consulting’s internal initiatives, for example by developing training, new service offerings, or engaging in CSR projects.

Why I like to work as an In-house Consultant:

Being an Inhouse Consultant at Allianz offers me the benefit of both getting to see many different projects (as is typical in a Consultancy) and being there for the long run to see my work and its impact in a multinational company.

What I like most about being an In-house Consultant:

I really enjoy travelling and working together with our international colleagues. In the two years I have been with Allianz Consulting, I have had the opportunity to see our entities on four continents and in ten different countries. I truly feel that we are one team for Allianz, with Consultants all around the globe.

My life before joining the In-house Consultancy:

Before joining Allianz Consulting, I was pursuing a master’s degree in Management and Chemistry. I got the chance to work in insurance during an internship in the United States and started to work for Allianz as a working student while finishing my master’s.

What I like to do in my spare time:

I like to be on the road and travel a lot, and I also like to stay fit and work out… ideally with some reggaeton music! Other than that, I am always up for trying out new recipes in the kitchen.
