This East Anglian domiciled MGA continues to expand and attract high volumes of submissions from its partner brokers. Unprecedented levels of enquiries continue to be presented from Yorkshire based brokers and thus there is now a requirement for a remotely based Underwriter to handle these new business enquiries and build strong, lasting local relationships with the introducers.

With a focus on underwriting packaged Commercial Combined risks from within the Manufacturing, Wholesaling and Retail sectors, you’ll use your manual underwriting skills to deliver new business quotations and subsequently bind and issue documents in less time than it takes some of the composite competition to request information! You’ll have the benefit of some outstanding facilities providing market-leading terms and coverage. Therefore, not only will you be well-placed to provide your brokers with an outstanding service in turnaround times and cover, but pricing wise, you will be highly competitive. It’s a win /win scenario!

To further reinforce the competitive edge that you provide, it is expected that you will be comfortable acting in broker-facing scenarios, visiting their offices, meeting the key individuals, and underwriting on-site when appropriate. The maintenance and maximisation of these important relationships is key, and evidence of this in previous roles will undoubtedly add weight to your application.

This role has the potential to go as far you want to take it. With enough new business enquires to keep you busy and focused on a full-time basis, this is a great opportunity for an experienced market professional like yourself to gain the autonomy and flexibility that you may not have in your current role. The bigger picture here is the growth potential to identify and on-board new agencies and introducers, and potentially create a new Yorkshire branch of the business should this be an avenue that you wish to pursue.

If you can demonstrate the technical commercial underwriting and proven relationship management skills, underpinned by the ability to prioritise and manage your working day efficiently and effectively, then here at Aston Charles, we want to hear from you immediately. With a basic salary of up to £45K, an underwriting bonus and comprehensive suite of benefits, this is a rare and exciting opportunity where you can really make your mark.
