Teams

Underwriting and claims operations

Our operations cover many areas, one of which is Underwriting and Claims Operations (UCO). UCO is one of the most diverse teams within operations and plays a huge proactive and reactive role in the strategic plans of the business.

People in UCO have a huge variety of skills and aspirations.

Our operations teams are involved in almost every aspect of the business, giving them a unique vantage point across all functions. This means they are able to break down silos, spot cross-skill opportunities and drive efficiency and economies of scale.

The UCO team at Beazley is responsible for many different areas including; supporting our underwriters and claims managers, quality assurance and managing our coverholders.

What we look for

As there are many roles that make up UCO, each role requires a different set of specific skills. But in general you should:

  • Be accurate and numerate
  • Have good computer skills (in particular spreadsheet and presentation programmes)
  • Be able to communicate effectively
  • Be a team worker as well as able to work on your own initiative
  • Have the ability to manage your time, meet deadlines and prioritise

Operations explained

To stay ahead of the competition, companies must be flexible and agile, while retaining a sharper-than-ever focus on cost-containment and efficiency. They have to fight for market share in developed markets, while also building scale and capacity in rapid-growth markets. Operations is the enabler to support all of these.
