As an Allianz Underwriter you will underwrite, trade and build relationships with Brokers, clients and other relevant stakeholders both internally and externally meaning the Underwriter role is incredibly varied with no two days the same.


Working for Allianz you'll gain a huge breadth of experience across a span of commercial businesses, and will either specialise in Commercial Motor, Property and Casualty, Financial Lines or Motor Trade sectors, with options to focus on renewing existing clients or prospecting and underwriting business that is new to Allianz UK. As an underwriting graduate, you will have the opportunity to complete the Chartered Insurance Institute's Advanced Diploma in Insurance (ACII), and you will complete Allianz's market-leading Excellence in Technical programme, tailored to your specific role. In addition this scheme offers increased engagement with our UK executive, and will provide a senior mentor and in office buddy to ensure you are offered a high degree of support, from your first day with us, right through to the end of you two year programme and beyond.


In order to succeed in this role you will be keen to learn, have high attention to detail and will enjoy working both as part of a team, and also independently at times. You will be driven and willing to find solutions to challenges, but will also know when you need to seek support and guidance from your team. You will be open to handling challenging conversations with external parties on occasion, and will be prepared to place yourself outside of your comfort zone to enable you to succeed.
