It’s all about assessing which engineering risks are worth taking 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 daunting? Don’t worry, our two-year Engineering Underwriting 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.

For example Senior Underwriting, Technical Management, Pricing, Account Management - all with the potential to develop into senior leadership roles.
