You could call it an Industrial Underwriter Trainee. 
But we are actually looking for you who want to learn and will make an impact on those you work with - and on our customers.

But what is underwriting?
As an underwriter you evaluate the risks and set a price and insurance cover depending on the profile of the client. This involved quantifying the potential risk that you see and set a premium/price to cover those risks. At If we write covers for Property, Casualty, Cargo, Personal Insurance and Digital/Cyber risks. Serving the largest and most complex clients, each insurance cover is tailored for the specific needs and risks of the client.
