We have the opportunity for an Underwriting Assistant to join the Property and Motor department on a 12-month fixed-term contract at Tokio Marine Kiln. You will report to the Departmental Manager and will ensure that the department has the necessary underwriter support to allow for efficient broker and business servicing at the Lloyd's Box and smooth running of the department. You will be accountable to the Divisional Head and Department Manager and will assist the Department Head to carry out tasks relating to the underwriting and reinsurance of the Division in order to provide appropriate customer focused products and maximise profitability, always bearing in mind the relationship between risk and return in respect of all underwriting activities.
The role includes responsibilities such as assisting the underwriting team in ensuring all underwriting data is recorded, updated, controlled and monitored in a timely manner, with a key focus on quality of data within TMK systems. You will also be expected to form partnerships within the Property & Motor team to assist with the timely and accurate processing of all risk information to ensure quality and accuracy within the underwriting system, as well as liaising in a timely manner with internal departments to ensure requests for information, feedback or guidance are dealt with effectively and efficiently. The role also includes responsibilities such as peer reviewing and assisting with the monitoring of the risk data quality, in addition to recording and acting on the actions and changes agreed within the peer review meeting.
The successful candidate will ideally be proficient using Microsoft excel, word and outlook and will also have general office administration experience. Knowledge of the insurance market, especially Lloyds, is desirable but not essential. We are looking for a team player with good attention to detail, who can manage their own workload and take ownership of specific responsibilities where required.
The successful candidate will be welcomed into the TMK family to help us further our purpose of enabling our clients to fulfil their ambitions whilst benefiting society and our people. We are committed to ensuring a safe, open, inclusive and empowering environment in which all of our people can thrive. All employees have the opportunity to join one or a number of inclusion network groups or take part in CSR and charitable activities. TMK is signed up to the Disability Confident Employer Scheme and we also accommodate flexible working, subject to the TMK flexible working policy.
As an underwriting firm with over 140 years’ experience of protecting clients from changing risks we put our confidence in the ability and talent of our people.

Our culture is founded on our core values of empowerment, inclusion, excellence, integrity, teamwork and innovation. We seek to recruit the best talent by endeavouring to reach diverse talent pools, offering dynamic working arrangements and investing in development.
