The Sompo International Graduate Trainee Programme is an 18 to 24-month training programme designed to give participants the business and technical skills they need to build a successful career in insurance underwriting. Trainees work alongside the most experienced underwriters in the industry to gain in-depth knowledge of our business units and underwriting philosophy. Through on-the-job learning, workplace mentoring and directed self-study, this programme prepares trainees to earn underwriting authority at Sompo International.

Participants work directly on their product accounts, building relationships with agents and brokers and identifying customers’ needs. This rigorous curriculum also includes training in sales and marketing, negotiation, and risk analysis.

Sompo International’s Graduate Programme is a foundation for career advancement at Sompo International and can lead to managing a business territory or overseeing staff or processes within a product line.

What can I expect as a Graduate Trainee?

• On-The-Job Learning

Insurance underwriting requires a high degree of experience and expertise – something you can’t learn in the classroom. Sompo International underwriter trainees are immersed in the day-to-day activities of underwriting new business and renewal accounts. They are given a rare opportunity to work alongside experts in the field to review submissions, analyse risks and expand their overall knowledge.

• Directed Self-Study

Professional designation courses give new underwriters technical knowledge of insurance operations and industry practices. Sompo International supports employees pursuing continuing educations opportunities by covering the cost for fees and textbooks, offering time off work to take exams, and providing additional compensation for successful completion of many courses. As part of the Graduate Trainee programme, participants will be required to complete their CII Certificate and Diploma qualification (additional details below).

? Certificate CII - completion of 3 exams (LM1, LM2, LM3)

? Diploma CII - completion of 4 exams (delegate can choose most applicable)
