The Admiral Business Team

Surviving in business is tough. Succeeding is even harder. We want to make it possible for more small businesses to survive and thrive - by building personalised products and services that allow our customers to run their business as well as they perform their craft.

We are a high-impact collaborative team of passionate individuals who are constantly looking at ways to enhance customer experience through a human centred design approach, rigour experimentation and a test and learn mindset. We are looking for bright and talented individuals who have a can-do attitude and will thrive in this enabling environment. We treat our colleagues openly, equally, and fairly and give them a ton of opportunity and freedom to do their best work and make a positive impact.

The Role

As a Portfolio SME Underwriter for the Admiral Business Team, you're not just shaping insurance solutions; you're architecting the future of insure tech. In this role, your expertise isn't confined to individual policies; you're pivotal in steering the direction of our entire portfolio.

Your responsibilities extend beyond traditional underwriting tasks. You're a key player in the decision-making team, leveraging your insights to drive strategic portfolio growth and development. Your contributions are instrumental in sculpting our digital, flexible, and innovative insurance offerings, ensuring they remain at the forefront of industry trends.

Here's where your expertise truly shines:

Strategic Underwriting: Your role goes beyond individual policies; you're crafting the blueprint for our entire portfolio. Your decisions are informed by a comprehensive understanding of underwriting guidelines and industry best practices.

Portfolio Management: You're not just assessing risks; you're sculpting our portfolio strategy. Your keen eye for opportunity ensures that our portfolio remains diverse, resilient, and aligned with our strategic objectives.

Decision-Making Team: As a member of the decision-making team, your insights carry weight. You're instrumental in shaping our strategic direction, contributing to discussions on risk appetite, product innovation, and market positioning.

Technical Guidance: Your expertise isn't just valuable internally; it's a guiding light for our entire team. You provide technical assistance on underwriting matters, ensuring that our decisions are grounded in sound underwriting principles.

Policy Development: Your input into policy development is crucial. You contribute to the creation and refinement of policy wordings and documentation, ensuring that they meet the needs of our customers and comply with regulatory requirements.

Compliance Oversight: Compliance isn't just a box to tick; it's a fundamental aspect of our operations. You work closely with the Governance Team to ensure that our underwriting practices are compliant with internal processes and regulatory requirements.

SME Package Expertise: Your deep understanding of SME Package insurance enriches our underwriting processes. You identify opportunities for process improvement and innovation, driving efficiency and effectiveness across the board.

Documentation Management: Your attention to detail ensures that our policy wordings and documentation are clear, accurate, and legally sound. You play a crucial role in ensuring that our customers understand their coverage and obligations.

Rule & Guideline Monitoring: You're not just following rules; you're shaping them. You assist in the development, administration, and monitoring of underwriting rules and guidelines, ensuring that they evolve in line with our strategic objectives.

Statistical Analysis: Numbers don't lie, and neither do you. Your ability to compile and analyze statistical data provides valuable insights for strategic decision-making and continuous improvement.

Adaptability: In a rapidly evolving industry, adaptability is key. You thrive in dynamic, fast-paced environments, embracing change as an opportunity for growth and innovation.

Cultural Alignment: You embody our culture of innovation, collaboration, and customer-centricity. Your 'can-do' attitude and commitment to excellence set the standard for our team.

Key Skills, Qualifications, and Experience:

  • Knowledge: You have a deep understanding of SME Package insurance and portfolio underwriting.
  • Experience: Your track record demonstrates your proficiency in portfolio management and decision-making.
  • Problem-Solving: Your analytical skills and strategic mindset enable you to identify opportunities and overcome challenges.
