We're excited to partner with a leading international insurance client to find a Property Underwriting Manager to join their growing team in Guildford, Surrey.

This is a hybrid role, where you can enjoy the flexibility of remote working with one day a week in the Guildford office.

  • Contribute to the development of new insurance products to meet the evolving needs of clients.
  • Ensure adherence to all regulatory requirements.

In this role, you will be responsible for underwriting new business and renewals for a portfolio of private clients. You will be entrusted with a delegated authority of up to £4 million, and you will play a key role in ensuring the company meets its underwriting targets.

To be successful in this role, you'll need:

  • A minimum of 2 years' Team Leading/Management experience
  • Strong Property Underwriting experience gained working for either a personal lines or commercial insurer or broker.
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving abilities.
