Underwriting Assistant Apprentice (London)
As an Underwriting Assistant Apprentice here, you’ll be working alongside, and learning from some of the most skilled underwriters in private client’s insurance. You will support our underwriters to enable them to provide the best possible service to our broker partners and their customers.
We don’t expect you to have had any previous underwriting experience – our structured programme will teach you everything you need to know. Right now, we are more interested in your passion, enthusiasm, and willingness to learn.
We will teach you how to work with our customers and brokers. As the first port of contact for our brokers, on the phone and via email, you will get to spend time building lasting relationships with them. You will also help to secure new business while ensuring our existing customers get the best solutions, tailored to their wants and needs.
Everything you do will have an impact on Aviva and our customers, so you’ll need to be passionate about delivering the best service and results. Prioritisation is key in this role; so you will likely be someone who enjoys planning as well as interacting with others.
As part of your apprentice journey with us, you will study to achieve your Level 3 Insurance Practitioner Apprenticeship, which takes 18 months on average, as well as attaining the Chartered Insurance Institute Certificate in Insurance (Cert CII).
To join us in any of these roles you will:
- Have at least five GCSEs (or Scottish National 5s) at A*-C or 9-4 (or equivalent), including English and Math
- Possess great communication and organisation skills
- Confidence in interacting with customers and clients
- Have the ability to work independently, but also as part of a team
- Have strong desire to learn
Most importantly, you’ll need to be naturally curious, keen to take the lead when it comes to your own development, and excited by the prospect of building a long-term career with Aviva.
