Our Underwriting teams are currently working remotely, so if you live across the UK and want an exciting career in Pricing and Underwriting then our DLG team could be for you!

We've adopted an agile approach that removes hierarchy within our roles, to free our people up to get things done and to deliver on projects as part of a wider squad. Our roles develop your skills and give you exposure to all areas of the wider teams. There are plenty of opportunities to progress and move between missions to deliver value where it is needed most. You'll grow your expertise on the way, as well as developing and sharing your experienced knowledge and skills with colleagues.

What you'll be doing:

You'll be using your specialist underwriting and industry knowledge to motivate changes in our ability to underwrite new and emerging risks. Your specialist technical and analytical skills will also be put to good use in supporting our Tribes in the delivery of their performance targets. You'll create and maintain market leading policy wordings balancing good business and customer outcomes.

Your focus is to drive developments in Underwriting risk including changes to rules, rating, fraud prevention measure, data sources and question sets. Your experiences and expertise of the market, industry, legal and regulatory developments that impact Underwriting will help build solutions for DLG. Delivery of experienced technical underwriting guidance and inputs will enable your Tribes and Squads to deliver key mission as well as develop underwriting competency across the team.

You'll provide expert underwriting input to enable complex risk acceptance decisions and the delegation and audit of underwriting authority.

You'll support the development of technical underwriting competency across the Pricing and Underwriting Chapter.

  • Detailed understanding of regulatory bodies and legislation and their impact on the business
  • Strong understanding of insurance principles, practices and risk perception
  • Knowledge of the differences in risk
  • Understanding of pricing methodology
  • Customer-focused.

We're actively looking for people to join our teams and we're committed to protecting your health and wellbeing throughout every step. Over the last few months we've adapted the way we work to enable us to both protect our people and continue to be there for our customers when they need us most.

What started out as a response to a crisis has now empowered us to think big and completely rethink the way we operate. From carrying out virtual interviews and onboarding to offering greater flexibility when it comes to location and homeworking for certain roles, we're embracing our new way of working.

During this time, we're doing everything we can to take care of our people, we haven't placed any of our colleagues on furlough and we've made commitments to protect their jobs and their pay.

It's a new way of working for many of us, so if you're successful in securing a role with us we'll work with you to make sure you have the tools and equipment you need, and you feel part of our amazing DLG team!
