What you will be working on

You’ll join a friendly, enthusiastic and growing team within our innovative Operations area here at Brit, reporting to a Team Leader within one of two squads. On a day-to-day basis, you’ll provide a professional and comprehensive administrative service for brokers, internal teams and service providers. You’ll maintain and monitor the flow of work between underwriting teams and the service provider, ensuring items are addressed in a timely and accurate manner.

In this pivotal role, you’ll be involved in the Underwriting, Operations and Compliance areas, and as such your thoughts and ideas will be welcomed to identify and implement opportunities for streamlining underwriting activity. Crucially, you’ll be required to maintain awareness of regulatory impact and ensure underwriting activity is always within guidelines.

In an ideal world, you’ll have some insurance experience to draw from. However, more importantly, we are keen you bring a fresh perspective and open-minded approach to the role with a focus on building relationships both existing and new. With endless progression opportunities within many differing areas, this is an opportunity not to miss!

We recognize that diversity in age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, thought and social background bring richness to our working environment. No matter who you are, where you’re from, how you think, or who you love, we believe you should be you.

You’ll get a highly competitive remuneration and benefits package. This is kept under constant review to make sure it stays relevant. We understand the power of saying thank you and take time to acknowledge and reward extraordinary effort by teams or individuals. If this sounds like a role and a culture that appeals to you, let us know. Apply now!
