Underwriting

 

Our two year underwriting scheme is designed to give you all the skills and technical know-how you need to become a successful underwriter and technical specialist of the future.

We want you to get the opportunity to develop innovative insurance solutions that fully meet the needs of our customers in this ever changing world.

You’ll be assigned dedicated study days and the funding you need to successfully complete the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Advanced Diploma in Insurance (ACII). In addition to your CII qualification you’ll also complete Allianz’s market-leading Excellence in Technical programme.

We have a large and varied customer base in the UK, so you could find yourself arranging insurance policies for a hotel in London, a motor fleet in the Midlands or a construction project in Scotland. You’ll gain a huge breadth of experience and will specialise in either corporate business or small and medium enterprises (SME).

Underwriting is at the heart of any insurance company, so developing your skills in this core area opens the door to a whole range of opportunities.


Your placements could be in either Allianz or Petplan. We have offices across the UK, meaning you could be in Guildford at our head office then moving to Birmingham for your next placement.
