Are you a dynamic and enthusiastic Underwriter looking to work for a leader in the insurance field? Do you want to be part of an environment where you’re not just another number? Are you looking to progress your career?
If so, a highly desirable and market leading insurer is looking to add to the ranks of its established and successful Birmingham branch with the appointment of a Development Underwriter. The team environment is passionate about what they do, and very supportive. It’s one where you’ll put a lot in but get a lot out of. The group has a great camaraderie and there are regular 'socials’ if that’s something you enjoy.
As a Development Underwriter, you will be the account manager for your panel of brokers. This means you will take overall responsibility for the relationship, and business, with your clients - delivering profitable growth across your panel. You will be regularly visiting your brokers to deliver a great service and build excellent relationships. You will personally underwrite the larger end of new and existing policies.
It is essential that you have a minimum of 12 - 18 months’ experience in a technical, broker facing role. You will also have experience within commercial insurance and/ or Financial Lines in an underwriting capacity. My client has a set candidate profile it looks for; someone who is very dynamic, proactive and constantly looking to better themselves. Therefore, applicants will only be considered who have shown drive in their career history through either promotions or career moves that have been to develop their career. Although not essential, individuals who have gained entry to the insurance industry via a graduate scheme, or who have a strong educational background, would be preferred.
As you would expect from a leader in its field, you will receive a fantastic package along with ample opportunities to develop and progress. This business prides itself on having a pretty flat management structure; you’ll be on first name terms with the Senior Management Team in the UK as they’re regularly present in the regional offices.
