At Beazley we’re not a jack-of-all-trades. We focus on specialist areas and aim to understand them better than any of our competitors. We insure a highly diversified portfolio, from risks that include cancellation of major sporting events, to offshore wind farms, kidnap and ransom to cyber-crime.

We empower our underwriters to make decisions and give straight answers. We employ people who have the skills and authority to make decisions.

What we look for

We expect you to have strong analytical skills, to evaluate risks and make solid business decisions. You will also need excellent interpersonal skills to work with brokers and other teams across Beazley. We like our underwriters to be results oriented, self-motivated, flexible and enthusiastic with a strong sense of service and team work.

Underwriting explained

Insurance underwriters evaluate the risk and exposures of potential clients. They decide how much coverage the client should receive, how much they should pay for it, or whether even to accept the risk and insure them. Underwriting involves measuring risk exposure and determining the premium that needs to be charged to insure that risk.
