About The Role

We have a new opportunity for an Assistant Trading Underwriting to join the Trading Underwriting Team at DAS UK Group. Reporting to the Trading Underwriting Team Manager, you will work alongside Trading Underwriters in support of the BTE insurance portfolio.

The Assistant Trading Underwriters are responsible for providing the Trading Underwriters with the support required in the management of our ongoing business partners. You can expect to specialise in the processing and underwriting support for the BTE portfolio, including scheme business and standalone risk across all distributions. In addition, you will provide support to members of the Underwriting department in areas of underwriting operations, procedures, policy endorsements, wording and underwriting queries and renewals.

There will be a strong focus on development of general underwriting knowledge as well as key support on some demanding underwriting accounts. You will play an important role in the overall underwriting process and will communicate within the business and across departments where required.

About You

We are looking for applicants who have an evident passion for delivery, ensuring the customer is at the centre of their decision making process. Communication and relationship building skills are therefore key to this position in order to build effective working relationships with key internal and external stakeholders.

In addition to the above, we are looking for applicants who are able to work within the Underwriting licence framework and who can:

  • Support the business partner in providing a suitable sales process and post sales process to improve customer understanding and customer experience;
  • Proactively identify where we can add value by providing solutions or assistance where appropriate;
  • Help retain and develop existing accounts through excellent customer service;
  • Act as first point of contact for our internal and external customers regarding policy or underwriting queries;
  • Provide administrative and policy cycle support across our scheme and standalone risks for both internal and external customers;
  • Demonstrate organisational, prioritisation and multi-tasking skills;
  • Work at pace whilst maintaining an accurate, high quality output; and
  • Demonstrate a clear desire to work in a controlled Underwriting environment.

Whilst this is a full time permanent position based in central Bristol, we are happy to discuss flexible working options.
