Contract Type
Full Time

This firm is one of the UK’s leading insurance brokers and has built up a fantastic reputation over nearly 100 years of trading. 

It arranges insurance on behalf of companies from almost every conceivable sector of industry, both blue and white collar. Its Property division controls a large portfolio of Residential and Commercial risks. 

As a Schemes Underwriter you will be tasked with assessing risks in-line with underwriting guidelines and place these within the terms of the binding authority.  You will keep the bordereaux up to date at all times, maintaining accurate records of policies underwritten and, where appropriate, issuing documentation in a timely fashion. In addition, you will also help manage relations with the insurer, keeping them appraised of the performance of the account and referring to underwriters for non-standard business.

It is essential that you have a detailed knowledge of the property insurance sector, gained in either a broking or underwriting background. Ideally this will be supplemented with experience of working on a delegated authority scheme.

You must be well organised with excellent time management skills and be comfortable working under pressure in a demanding environment. You should also be highly numerate with strong IT skills, including a sound knowledge of Microsoft Office products. You should also be confident in your approach, a team player and be able to communicate effectively with both internal and external stakeholders.

In return you will receive a competitive basic salary, a comprehensive range of company benefits and support towards professional qualifications under the Chartered Insurance Institute.
