Ambitious and driven Underwriter is now wanted to join a fantastic employer in Gloucestershire!

CKB Recruitment are delighted to be working with a mutual society, who have experienced some impressive growth recently, and have a leadership team in place to make sure this continues and have big plans for the future. They currently number 72 people in the business as a whole, so you will know most people there once you have settled in and be able to put a name to the face! They have just moved to very impressive and brand-new offices too, on the outskirts of Cirencester!

They are now looking to appoint a Senior Underwriter on their Income Protection team to be a technical lead and focal point in a small team of 4, where you will be responsible for the management of this team on a day to day basis, reporting into the Chief Underwriter.

Due to the very low turnover of staff, this is a rarely available career opportunity for someone career minded who wants to work for a business who offer first class training and development for all its staff as well as a stable and enjoyable working environment.

As well as the management side of the role you will also be required to undertake accurate and effective underwriting of policies, to manage risk within the company by the accurate underwriting, including substandard cases and financial underwriting, and approval of all new business and increase applications in accordance with underwriting guidelines and rating considerations relating to the company's products within an agreed authority level

As previously stated with this being a Senior role, management experience is highly sought after, although experienced underwriters who have perhaps just mentored more junior staff are also encouraged to apply!

First and foremost, you must be an experienced Underwriter, with strong previous experience of underwriting income protection and private medical insurance.

This is a truly fabulous opportunity to join a great local employer in Gloucestershire, who offer a warm and friendly working environment, working with a great team!

Office hours are 8:45am to 5pm and the salary on offer is circa £40k, depending on experience. Benefits on offer include a 10% non-contributory pension, being able to become a member of the society (with lots of perks), up to 10% annual bonus based on the societies performance and 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) to start.
