A major international insurer is looking to appoint a Senior Underwriter for its expanding North West operation.

Although a new team, you’ll be based at the National Trading Centre that deals with brokers all across the country. From this impressive office, it builds relationships with brokers that need real care and attention in order for them to place more business.

Your role will be to handle referrals from the Underwriting Team on cases that fall outside their authority levels. The product suite will consist of all SME classes, from standalone Liability to PI and Combined risks. Supporting the Underwriting Manager, you will train and mentor more junior Underwriters in their areas of development, to ensure that they have all the tools needed to succeed in the role.

You’ll be measured against the performance of the overall book, as you’ll be expected to take remedial action to correct any issues. You will also be monitored on your results from the team members’ referrals that you take.

It is essential that you have strong technical knowledge within commercial underwriting across a broad range of products. You will have a proven track record of successfully trading with brokers, and the confidence to negotiate effectively with them. It is also important that you have excellent coaching and training skills in order to help support and develop your team.

In return, you will receive a highly competitive salary and benefits package that includes an annual bonus. The company is renowned for rewarding high-performing individuals, offering them a wide range of attractive career development opportunities. Due to the expansion in this business area, a number of attractive career opportunities will become available. This is supported by the company’s mantra of always looking to ‘progress from within’ in the first instance. With this being a new team where you will hold a senior position, you will have the opportunity to stand out in world-leading business, where your achievements will be highly visible to the senior management.
