Responsibility? You bet. Right from the start, you’ll be involved in interesting challenging projects which make a real difference to our successful engineering insurance and inspection business. You’ll specialise to become an underwriter.

What is an underwriter? Which risks are worth to be taken 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 complicated? Don’t worry, our two-year engineering Insurance 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.

We want you to get the opportunity to develop into a sector expert underwriter that works alongside our experts, helping to develop our underwriting and pricing strategy across a variety of lines of business, such as the construction, engineering and power sectors.

As a specialist engineering insurer, we have a large and varied customer base, so you could be assessing risks for construction projects, or machinery equipment or even looking at emerging risks such as cyber or renewable energy.
