Job Description

We’re looking for a Senior Underwriter (Property Treaty)

About Brit

At Brit, we believe that the uncertainty of the future should never stand in the way of progress. That’s why we exist. To help people and businesses face the future and thrive. We are change-makers enabled by a global workforce who collaborate to deliver a risk service. A team empowered to help our customers not only to survive the risks they face, but to stay on the front foot and keep moving forward. We believe the uncertainty of tomorrow isn’t something to fear but to seize; that it’s full of potential. Not only for our customers but our employees too.
We might write the future of risk for our brokers and clients, but we would love to help you write your future at Brit: a future based on not just progressing but on thriving – both professionally and emotionally. If you’re looking for a place to make a real difference read on.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll take a critical role in identifying, shaping and specifying business and systems solutions on a range of projects, communicating and working closely with all parts of the business in Bermuda and the UK.
You’ll underwrite business for Brit’s Property Treaty unit, fully utilising your significant experience in this area and further building your knowledge. We’d love it if you have experience within other lines of business as well but this is by no means an essential requirement. Your finely honed relationship management skills will come into play as you develop new business opportunities within the unit, supporting the achievement of considerable growth targets.

As a seasoned Underwriter, you’ll know that credibility and relationships are key in this market and will be able to demonstrate a track record of successful relationship management with solid experience dealing with brokers and clients and underwriting a high level of sum insured portfolio. You will have a ‘client first’ mindset and enjoy providing exceptional cover to them.

You will benefit from working alongside our ‘best in class’ underwriting team in an inclusive, engaging and diverse environment with enormous potential for personal and career development. This is your time to shine!

We welcome everyone wholeheartedly

We’ve got a truly diverse, genuinely inclusive work environment. We comfortably and confidently bring our whole selves to work, because we know we’ll be respected, valued and accepted whoever we are. Our Employee Resource groups are safe spaces for people to share their experiences, aspirations and suggestions about how we do things.
