We’re looking for an Underwriting Technician (Part Time)


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.


Our Political & Credit Risk team prides itself on offering a quality service in timelines, detailed feedback and claims servicing for the brokers and clients that we support in their activities around the globe. See more here: https://www.britinsurance.com/insurance/political-credit-risk


What you’ll be doing


You’ll join our closely-knit Political & Credit Risk team providing a comprehensive administrative service as an Underwriting Technician. This role involves using your communication skills to liaise closely with Underwriting Operations, including being the onshore interface between underwriters and the service provider in respect of all technical processing activities. With your prioritisation and organisational ability, you’ll assist the team in the preparation of statistics and the analysis of business trends.


Commercial awareness and numerical/analytical aptitude will serve you in good stead in this role, along with a general interest in world affairs and the real stories behind the headlines. Ability with Microsoft Excel and financial data manipulation will be highly advantageous. Your desire to develop and build on existing knowledge, both in these areas and this insurance class of business generally will be vital.


The role is part-time based around the equivalent of 3 days a week with some flexibility to balance specific contractual hours around the right candidate’s needs. Hybrid working is feasible/expected, but please note that during the initial training phase it is likely that most time will need to be face-to-face in our London office.


If you’re looking for a flexible role within a friendly, supportive and collaborative team with ample opportunity to learn and grow your skills and abilities, you’re looking in the right place!


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.
