Are you an experienced Underwriter who enjoys the more technical aspect of insurance? Do you want experience dealing with Portfolios rather than just individual cases? Do you enjoy working with brokers and building strong relationships?

If so, a fantastic opportunity has arisen with a leading international composite that is seeking an accomplished Schemes Underwriter.

This market-leading player strives to offer a ‘best in class’ approach and is focused on fully exploiting business opportunities with its broker partners.

Your role will be to deal with referral cases from brokers that fall outside the scheme parameters. However, you will also be reviewing the schemes on an ongoing basis to ensure that they are running profitably. Should you notice any flaws in a scheme or anything that could be improved upon, you will provide the appropriate remedy to ensure the terms/ rates are in line to become profitable. On occasion, you will be required to attend broker meetings to build relationships and trust.

It is essential that you have technical experience within cross-class commercial insurance products, in either broking or underwriting, and it is preferred that you also have a particular strength in a certain area. This is not a ‘trading’ role, therefore it is not essential that you have a strong sales background, although you must be comfortable in dealing with brokers. You will also possess excellent communication skills to work with both internal and external stakeholders comfortably. This company is only looking for individuals who have a genuine thirst for continuous improvement and who push themselves to achieve this.

What’s in it for you? You will receive a highly competitive salary and benefits package, including an annual bonus. More importantly, this business is renowned for rewarding success, and with numerous examples of internal development, there are a wide range of attractive career opportunities available.
You will have the benefit of a corporate, yet modern approach to your individual development, and your management team will be fully committed to your career enhancement from day one.
