You will have the ability to develop an excellent understanding and working knowledge of the products that are on offer to clients and work under set guidelines in order to achieve set goals and targets for the underwriting team. There is also a requirement to ensure there is customer focus at all times. Customer excellent is paramount and exceptionally high standards of customer service are provided at all times.

Candidates who wish to be considered for the role of assistant underwriter do not necessarily need to come from underwriting but some kind of insurance exposure would be ideal. This could come from underwriting, broking, claims or just insurance customer service.

Training and support will be provided to the successful assistant underwriter and there will also be the option to take on qualifications specifically within the insurance industry such as CII exams.
