The opportunity (the bit where we tell you what it’s all about!) 

Are you looking for an exciting new opportunity where you’ll get to develop and grow a new area of focus for our Retail business? A role in our Underwriting team could be the one for you! We like to provide innovative, creative propositions to suit our customer’s needs and we pride ourselves on going above and beyond. Why? Simply put, we want to exceed all expectations by delivering a high-quality service that sets us apart from our competitors. 

As an Underwriter, you’ll be analysing and underwriting our renewal business. This means you’ll be in a Market facing role, so it’s really important that you are great at communicating and have a built-in passion for doing the right thing for our customers.  

We’ll support and train you in all the technical aspects of the role and will make sure that you feel part of the team from day one. 

This role is available part-time, job-share or full time, this is because we want the best people for our roles, and we recognise that sometimes those people aren’t available full-time. If this is you, please talk to us at interview about the flexibility you may need.  


So what will you be doing? 

Well, you can expect no two days to be the same, you’ll be working with your team and reporting into a Business Manager as well as interacting with brokers and intermediaries daily.  

We need you to provide a standout service experience for customers and stakeholders and be responsible for delivering quality and timely solutions for them. This means taking ownership of own workload and supporting colleagues to deliver our collective workload - it’s all about being a team player! 

If you spot ways we can improve things or do them differently, we’d love you to tell us, that’s how we can boost effectiveness and efficiency of our processes. 


So what are we looking for? 

You will have established combined Underwriting experience and what we really need are your strengths and energy to come into play.

We will help you to extend your knowledge of the group risk market and products, as well as all the technical bits but you’ll already be a strong communicator who is happy making a decision. 

We’d like you to be happy to challenge processes and decisions using your attention to detail. You’ll naturally adapt your style to different workloads and pressures and be able to think on your feet. Last but not least, organisation and the ability to prioritise is really key, our customer is always foremost on our minds!
