Do you want to work for an award-winning financial services provider that prides itself on its customer service excellence?

Do you have commercial insurance experience within an insurer or broker environment?   

Our client is looking for a New Business Commercial Underwriter to join their established team at their Regional Service Centre in Bristol or Stratford-upon-Avon.  You will be responsible for building and maintaining productive relationships with a national agency network.  This will involve delivering first class technical support and assistance on new commercial insurance policies across a variety of business classes.  Depending on your experience, you may work as one of the more senior members of the team, dealing with more complex cases as well as supporting and coaching other team members. 

In return for the responsibilities of this New Business Commercial Underwriter role, full training is being offered, as well as recognition and reward through ongoing career development and the opportunity to study towards your Cert CII/ACII.  This is in addition to a market leading salary plus annual company performance bonus (up to 10%), excellent holiday entitlement and overall benefits package. 

Work-life balance is important to them, so you will only be required to work office hours between 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. (35 hours a week) with no evenings or weekends.  While you will be expected to spend at least half your time working in their fabulous office, you will also have the flexibility to work from home. 


Due to the nature of this New Business Commercial Underwriter role, previous commercial insurance experience within an insurer or broker environment in at least one of the following business classes is required – commercial package and combined, property and casualty, fleet, and agricultural and farming.  Please note that while this experience does not need to be within underwriting, you will need to have sold or set-up new commercial insurance policies, and in turn be able to demonstrate strong trading and negotiation skills and a good understanding of the underwriting process. 

If you are interested in this New Business Commercial Underwriter role or would like to hear more details, then please contact me ASAP as our client is looking to move quickly on this role.
