Hiscox Underwriting Graduate Programme
Are you curious, eager to learn, and try new things? Can you think on your feet and make intelligent and commercial decisions? Do you have the courage to ask difficult questions and challenge the status quo? If you’re nodding, our underwriting graduate scheme is for you.
On the programme, you’ll complete two underwriting rotations within your sponsoring business area, building breadth of understanding as an underwriter – the risks we insure, how we price them, and under what conditions. You’ll also complete a rotation outside of underwriting in an area such as Claims or Pricing, broadening your knowledge and skills and helping you to appreciate the bigger picture.
You’ll receive excellent on-the-job training from our highly respected and experienced insurance professionals, together with a structured learning programme designed to develop your financial and business acumen as well as skills essential for your future career, such as leadership and delivering coherent, concise and compelling presentations. You’ll also be fully supported to become professionally qualified through the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Roles on our Underwriting Graduate Scheme are based in our London office, with a combination of time in the office and working at home. We see it as the best of both worlds: structure and sociability on one hand, and independence and flexibility on the other.
