A truly rare opportunity to enter the commercial underwriting industry, where you can carve yourself a very rewarding and lucrative career.
The Leeds office of this very successful insurance company seeks an Underwriting Assistant to support its senior underwriting staff with the servicing of existing clients, as well as the growth of its portfolio.
This company provides insurance for some fascinating risks, and distributes its business via a number of channels, including some well-known price comparison sites and high-profile trade associations.
Your duties will include, but certainly not be limited to, calculating premiums to ensure the continued profitability and competitiveness of accounts, reviewing renewals, analysing data and trends, dealing with broker enquiries, building relationships with internal and external stakeholders, and assisting with ad hoc projects as required.
It is essential that you are detail-orientated with good numeracy skills, and comfortable with using Microsoft Excel. Some previous underwriting experience (either within General Insurance or Financial Services) would certainly be welcomed, although this is by no means essential, as full training will be provided. Importantly, our client is NOT looking for someone who simply wants to sit behind a desk and crunch numbers; they are seeking someone who is also keen to manage relationships with brokers and distributors.
You will be working in a very friendly and supportive office of 5 staff, and therefore you must feel comfortable working within a boutique-style environment.
One of the major selling points of this opportunity is that you will be working with, and learning directly from, some of the most talented and gifted Underwriters within this field of insurance, and therefore you can expect your technical knowledge to develop quickly within this firm.
You will be rewarded with a basic salary ranging from £18K - £23K (negotiable and depending on experience) plus a range of company benefits.
