Underwriting role for grad or school leaver!

Underwriting role for grad or school leaver!

Chaucer is one of the original Discover Risk supporters, based in the heart of London's risk and insurance district. It was the first company to offer technical insurance apprenticeships in the City and since then has gone on to scoop several awards for its graduate programme too.

Here's another top opportunity from them, for you, whether you are a school/college leaver or a graduate.  It's an Underwriting Assistant role in the Financial Institutions team. 

You'll offer full admin support to the Financial Institutions team. More than that, the role is a foundation for a career in underwriting. That's because you'll be given support and training to progress to future underwriting authority.

Here are the main features of the role:
  • Checking slips for contract certainty and completing contract certainty checklists and QA tool checklists
  • Computer entry of slips and underwriting notes
  • Providing statistical information to the line underwriters when required, liaising with credit control regarding premium payments and monitoring renewal lists
  • Ensuring that electronic records are kept fully up to date following amendments and endorsements
  • Preparing information packs and taking minutes for monthly departmental meetings, on a rota
  • Liaising with Underwriting Support
  • Monitoring premium payments
  • Maintaining an up-to-date and efficient filing system
  • Photocopying and scanning

Now, it may be that some of those terms above don't mean anything to do yet. That's ok - you can do some research and build your knowledge. You don't have to have sector experience. Here's what Chaucer wants from you:

  • Experience in the Financial Institutions market
  • Experience in general insurance market
  • Use of Microsoft Office, particularly Excel and Word
  • 5 GCSEs or equivalent – Grade C or above
  • 3 A levels or equivalent – Grade C or above
  • Commitment to studying insurance qualifications (ACII), if relevant
  • Honours degree
  • Progress to, or completion of, ACII if relevant
  • Ability to be thorough when necessary
  • Well-presented and businesslike
  • Professional outlook
  • Flexible at all times
  • Very good interpersonal skills
  • Excellent organisational skills
  • Good communication skills with the ability to liaise at all levels
  • Work as part of a team
  • Adapt to a pressured environment
  • Self-motivated
  • Capable of working to a timetable when required

To apply for this role, please send your CV to by the closing date of 10 November.
