A new exciting opportunity has arisen working for a Birmingham based insurer as a Commercial Existing Business Senior Trading Underwriter. This company has the strength and security of a consortium of leading insurers as well as bespoke risk management solutions.
They offer a different perspective on commercial insurance; designing their processes around the brokers needs, whilst at the same time delivering financial security and stability to policyholders.
As a renewals trading underwriter, the main focus will be retaining profitable commercial risks within your own allocated accounts, and work very closely within your intermediary panel. It is essential that you have the right attitude/pro active approach, where you will be targeted on retaining your own accounts and therefore required to maximise all business opportunities presented to you. Although this role is an internal position, there will be the need to attend regular brokers visits on a frequent basis discussing key accounts or ones that are under attack from third party brokers
Two of the key main aspects of this role are to be technically competent and have experience/knowledge on property/casualty and commercial combined risk (contractors would be an advantageous, and also as important is to have the ability to trade effectively with the brokers you'd work with, be able to think outside of the box, and to make sure each case is retained and renewed where all parties are satisfied with the end result.
To apply for this position, you will need to have been involved in an underwriting role previously and ideally have a minimum of 4 to 5 years plus commercial underwriting experience. Studying towards ACII would be an advantage, and the company would support this going forward.
Excellent basic, bonus, staff benefits and support with career development.
