Who we are
Allianz is a global insurance company serving across 70 different countries, but from the very first day you join our team you’ll know that your contributions are valued. We offer world class learning and career development opportunities, while we celebrate an inclusive culture.
We’ve recently joined forces with our Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) business, a leading global corporate insurance carrier across more than 30 countries and a key business unit of the Allianz Group. This is creating a one ‘face to market’ bringing together the best of Allianz to our mid and large corporate customers; trading as ‘Allianz Commercial’.
This is an exciting opportunity for us and one which will provide significant strides in our journey towards becoming the UK’s Number 1 Commercial Insurer. Bringing together Allianz UK and AGCS as ‘One Allianz’ will drive profitable growth across this important segment and establish ourselves as the employer of choice. There’s a lot of work to be done to bring together our combined strengths, expertise and assets and so the collaboration of our people is key to the success of this.
Allianz Commercial has an ambition to grow significantly over the coming years and the development of our offering to satisfy and support the increasing demand from customers with a turnover in excess of £500m is a key aspect of the growth aspiration. As a result we are looking for a number of talented Underwriters and Senior Underwriters to support these plans.
We will be particularly interested in candidates with experience in the following lines of business:
- Property & Casualty
- Engineering & Construction
- Accident & Health
If this sounds like an interesting proposition and you would like to bring your expertise and join us on this journey, we would love to hear from you and invite you to submit your CV.
As an Underwriter, as you would expect you will be underwriting profitable new and renewal business, negotiating pricing and terms & conditions, managing and developing your accounts/clients and ensuring compliance against governance frameworks. In addition, as a Senior Underwriter, you will have more in-depth and specialised technical expertise in order to mentor and coach team members as well as have the responsibility for larger accounts, drafting and interpreting contracts, analysing complex data and the ability to sell improvised or prepared audience winning stories.
As an Underwriter, you will have demonstrable experience in underwriting profitable business and a solid understanding of products in your line of business, the insurance market in general and competitor landscape. In addition, as a Senior Underwriter you will have extensive experience in these areas as well as high visibility in the market, thorough understanding and knowledge of legal and regulatory frameworks and most likely be CII qualified.

Recognised and rewarded for a job well done, we have a range of flexible benefits for you to choose from so you can pick a package that’s perfect for you.

That’s on top of enjoying all the benefits you’d expect from the world’s number one insurance brand, including a great compensation and benefits package including a generous bonus scheme and pension.
