Our client is a leading niche insurer providing dedicated insurance solutions to regional brokers across specialist areas such as financial lines, life science and technology markets. They pride themselves in employing specialist underwriters who are able to deliver a first class service to their brokers.

An opportunity has now arisen for an Underwriter to join their internal technical team out of their Manchester office (an option to work from their Leeds office is available) to underwrite new and existing business across Technology, Property and Life Science. Working alongside the Product Manager and a team of external Development Underwriters, you will be responsible for a book of renewals and underwriting new business. The role will be mainly internal, but can offer external visits to brokers when the need arises.

The successful candidate must be technically strong in Technology and / or Life Science markets with a minimum of 3 to 5 years relevant experience and have a wider understanding of the ever changing insurance marketplace and the needs of a broker within this specialist area.

This will be a pivotal role and be key in supporting the company across the UK, therefore we are keen to discuss this role with an ambitious underwriter that wants to take a more proactive role within a company that can lead to further career development opportunities.

An excellent basic salary (dependent on experience) / benefits package and outstanding bonus scheme is available.
