Senior Commercial Underwriter

Would you appreciate more underwriting autonomy? Do you want to be inspired to write more business, rather than continue to tell Insurers/Brokers no? I mean, what's the point holding the pen if you're current Insurer is so cautious about writing business....

Would you enjoy working from home pretty much full time? (Once a month spent in your offices in Yorkshire, the rest spending time with your colleagues over Microsoft teams!)

Joining as a Commercial Underwriter you will handle a case-load of approx. 45 renewals per month, cases ranging from £1,000 - £100,000 with the average being around £3,500 GWP.

You'll be involved in writing a range of business including Commercial Combined/Package, Property, Liability, Construction and Property Owners. The business are even launching further product lines such as Marine / Marine Cargo.

As an integral part of the team, you'll assist the Managing Director/Operations Manager in formulating strategy and assisting with any business operational/technical areas within the department as and when required.

Words that best describe this business.... fun, collaborative and trusting. I mean which other employers out there will let you work from home pretty much full time?
