A global provider of specialist insurance products seeks a Underwriter to oversee the profitability of high-profile accounts.
Based in Leeds, this world, market-leader boasts an enviable client list encompassing some very well-known, prestigious brands.
This exciting opportunity has arisen as a result of the continued growth of the business and the fact that is signing more and more deals worldwide.
There are very few insurance organisations in the North of England that will give you exposure to such a diverse range of responsibilities. The role provides scope for involvement in regular rate and programme reviews, inward and outward reinsurance, overseas risks, client meetings, wordings, product development, systems changes, claims discussions and involvement in tenders. Excitingly, the company is also investing significantly in the digitalisation of the business over the next 3 years covering e-fulfilment, digital claims, improved product management and improved front end distribution systems, which will give you great exposure to some fascinating projects in this arena.
You will take responsibility for a portfolio of clients, for whom you will underwrite and manage effective insurance schemes entailing a number of niche lines. Working in conjunction with the Actuarial and Pricing team, you will ensure that prices calculated are appropriate in all respects for the products requested. You will also ensure that products are designed with the customer in mind, that they offer value for money, and are fully compliant. You will be working with various stakeholders including Marketing, Compliance and Sales teams to ensure the maximum up-take of products from the end consumer.
Analysing and manipulating data, you will review the ongoing performance of schemes, identifying any areas for improvement. Using your well-honed communication skills, you will report back to your clients to discuss account performance, explain trends, and relay complex insurance subjects in layman’s terms.
You must have a good degree of underwriting experience, with strong numerical ability. Our client is open to candidates from any insurance product discipline, as full training will be provided on these specialist lines. Just as importantly, you must be an impressive communicator and presenter, with the ability to liaise effectively with senior stakeholders of blue-chip companies.
You will be rewarded with an attractive salary and benefits package, with an extremely generous holiday allowance, which some years could give you up to 40 days’ holiday! The firm also operates a flexible working policy, and whilst you can work in the superb office as much as you like, you can work up to 3 days per week from home, if you so wish.
As we are sure you will have gathered by now, opportunities like this really do not present themselves regularly within the Yorkshire insurance market, so apply in confidence today to avoid disappointment.
