Based in the City of London, this team boasts some of the brightest minds in the broking world; from rising stars with great futures ahead, through to vastly experienced veterans of the industry eager to impart their knowledge to the next generation. It has a flat structure, headed by a young management team, who are keen to embrace modern ways of working, new initiatives and a fresh approach to insurance.
As Team Leader, you will oversee a team of six Account Handlers and Brokers handling middle market and corporate accounts from a range of industry sectors, such as Technology, Professional Services, Engineering and Manufacturing. This team is well-established and is known within the business for its focus on client service and its supportive environment, where all colleagues enjoy working to shared goals and objectives.
Our client is looking for a (Senior) Underwriter to design and integrate the processes regarding quotation, sales pitch, underwriting, pricing and reinsurance. The successful candidate is responsible for the preparation of underwriting reviews/ approvals and the maintenance of portfolio management.
The board of this broker takes a very pragmatic approach when it comes to appointing senior colleagues. Rather than being introduced to the business via ‘the HR channel’, you will initially meet with The Chief Executive Officer at a mutually convenient location, and enjoy a frank exchange of views on the broking market, your ambitions and career to date
This fresh perspective extends to the acquisition of personnel; rather than simply ‘filling roles’ the MD has been given carte blanch to “find the best in the market and employ them.” He welcomes applications from talented insurance professionals from all walks of life, including those high-achieving Account Executives who perhaps don’t see themselves as fitting the traditional, London market mould.
This formidable broking house has enjoyed double-digit growth year on year for nearly a decade, and is equally proud of exceeding 95% retention of both clients and employees alike. As a result, it is well placed to invest in established teams of individuals who wish to further their careers by joining a fast paced and dynamic broker.
A highly desirable and market-leading insurance business is looking to add to the ranks of its established and successful Underwriting Team with the appointment of a Development Underwriter. You’ll be working in a very passionate and supportive team, where people are really rewarded for their efforts.
Reporting directly to the board, you will form part of the Head Office Management Team (totaling 15 individuals, typically ‘Heads of’ from other Departments), so you will be sure of a high profile within the business. You will be accountable for overseeing the risk management systems and be granted a great deal of autonomy in how you ensure the company has effective strategies, processes and reporting procedures in place to accurately identify, measure, monitor and report the risks the company may face.
