Head of Commercial Underwriting

As the evenings draw in and the grey of the UK becomes normality. It's easy for your mind to drift off to sunnier climes.

And with the life part of the work life balance becoming even more important, those grey Monday mornings appeal even less.

So a sunny climate, no commute, brilliant beaches. Balancing work in between all this good stuff.

Sounds like a dream right. Well not necessarily.

Many people have chosen to take advantage of almost 2000 hrs of annual sun, an average 15 minute commute (usually by scooter) and a perfect work life balance by choosing to work in the Channel Islands.

And that's before we even mention the tax.

This recognised insurance business are one of the leading providers of general and specialist property based insurance services and have created your ticket to this unique lifestyle.

The business is growing and they are looking to further strengthen their underwriting team with a Head of Commercial Underwriting.

As Head of Commercial Underwriting you'll be delegated with the highest grade underwriting license in the business which you'll use to underwrite complex cases whilst leading the team of 4/5 skilled Underwriters.

Underwriting complex commercial risks personally, and be an escalation point for underwriting decisions of the team.

You will be managing delegated underwriting authority and products from various partners to ensure that you provide a high quality local commercial underwriting/pricing service to your clients whilst building strong relationships with them. Delivering activity to continually improve the underwriting capability and service delivery of the business to improve customer experience.

If you are in an commercial underwriting role as either an Underwriter looking for the next step in your career or already leading a team and just want a new challenge I would love to hear from you.

So if you really enjoy the rain lashing your legs on a cold wet Monday morning then this probably won't be for you.

However if a beach stroll before your 10 min commute into your leadership role sounds a bit better, then, please do feel free to get in touch with me to discuss further.
