Senior System Engineer @ Contassur

Contassur is an insurance company active in the field of pension funds (group insurances) and collective care. The activities of Contassur are comparable with actuary offices such as Aon Hewitt, Mercer or Willis Towers Watson. The company  mainly works for companies in the gas and electricity sector (Elia, Fluvius, Fluxys, Ores,…)  and the ENGIE group (Electrabel, Tractebel, Fabricom, Cofely, Axima,…). 

The pension plans of the above companies are managed via the insurance company Contassur SA or via five Belgian pension funds (Tractebel, Pensiobel, Elgabel, Enerbel and Powerbel) and the supplementary pension plans set up by these bodies (Pension Financing Organisations – OFPs). These pension funds are also managed by Contassur.

Contassur has 40 employees and works for almost 200 companies. It has more than 40,000 people insured, hundreds of pension plans and 4 billion Euros of reserves under management. Contassur's clients are closely interwoven in the shareholder structure (Electrabel 15% and three of the five pension funds for 85%).

The organisation follows a mutualist philosophy, i.e. its main objective is to remunerate its policyholders in the best possible way, thanks to a limited cost structure, without a commercial structure and in close collaboration with its clients.
