About the role

Here at NFU Mutual, we are currently seeking experienced High Net Worth Underwriters to join our team in Bristol, where you will review a variety of HNW insurance risks for both new and existing business, including everything from Buildings and Contents to Fine Art and Valuables. You will propose and negotiate policy terms in accordance with our Underwriting principles, standards and criteria.

Putting our members first is at the heart of everything we do, so it is important you ensure fair outcomes aligned with our risk appetite and first-class customer service. It is an exciting time to join the team as HNW is a key growth area for the business.

As a Regional Underwriter, you will work closely with our network of NFU Mutual Agents, building strong relationships and providing them with technical support and assistance. Occasionally, you will also accompany them on client visits to help improve their understanding of risks.

Additionally, you will coach and train more junior members within the team on more complex risks as well as audit cases to identify training needs.

What we're looking for

The successful candidate will have previous High Net Worth underwriting or broking experience, ideally within the household sector, partnered with a comprehensive understanding of the market and a track record of dealing with more complex and technical cases.

You will be driven, self-motivated and will be able to demonstrate the ability to build strong and lasting relationships whilst having the confidence to challenge and deal with push-back.

What we can offer

Here at NFU Mutual we pride ourselves on being a great place to work, and have again been presented with the Gallup Great Workplace Award. Along with a supportive culture you can also look forward to some very attractive reward benefits such as:

  • Salary - competitive

  • Annual bonus (up to 10%)

  • Contributory pension scheme (maximum of 12% company contribution)

  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays (additional holiday purchase scheme)
