Underwriting at LV=

Customer-focused and continually improving, our highly valued Underwriting function is at the top of its game when it comes to achieving great results. Joining this talented team, you’ll benefit from dedicated development programmes to help you get the most out of your career while delighting customers.

Underwriting is a critical part of any insurance company – and especially one with a growing customer base of over 5 million. Just like any other underwriting department, ours is ambitious, driven and on the money when it comes to analysis and assessment. But this talented function offers more than just technical excellence. The desire to succeed and deliver in Underwriting is underpinned by a strong set of LV= values and a wholehearted customer focus.

Underwriters work collaboratively with other areas of the business to provide a service that impresses both customers and the IFA, strengthening our reputation of being a trusted, award-winning insurance provider. The approach is working well and our Underwriting teams are hitting ambitious targets, writing some £50 million of new business annually and achieving top-drawer results for customer satisfaction.

Reward, recognition and celebrating success are business as usual in Underwriting. We don’t just make big claims about career progression here: we have programmes in place, with clearly defined milestones to make sure that our underwriters can thrive and achieve their ambitions. Working in a positive, encouraging culture, our Underwriting Role Progression Programme will support both your career advancement and technical development.

 

 

From achieving professional qualifications to our successful buddy system, we’ll invest fully in you and give you all the tools you need to keep on moving up. For us, it’s two-fold: by giving you the support and empowerment you need, you’ll be better placed to meet customers’ needs and help to grow the business.

We look for Underwriters at all levels, across a range of areas, including Motor, Broker, Life and Commercial Packaging – and right now is a really exciting time to join us. As well as big new product launches, we’re continually revolutionising the way we work and drawing on state-of-the-art technology to streamline processes and enhance the customer journey. Our Mendix platform has removed the need for spreadsheets in some teams, helping things to work smarter, swifter and more efficiently. As we continue to make strides towards our vision to be Britain's best loved insurer, your insight and ideas will always be valued and you’ll have good exposure to key decision-makers.

So if you’re hungry for a challenge, ready to make an impact and keen to really go places in your career, this is the function for you.
