Job description

Which risks are worth taking for the business? At what price and under what conditions? These are decisions you’ll make, after carefully assessing individual companies and negotiating terms and prices with brokers. Sounds a bit daunting?

Don’t worry, our two-year Underwriting scheme is designed to give you all the skills and technical know-how you need to become a successful underwriter and technical specialist of the future.
