Job description

*Fixed Term Contract opportunities until December 2021*

Our Global Corporate Speciality (GCS) team in Worthing has started the search for a number of Underwriting Support roles.

Are you a strong, dynamic, positive person with a can-do approach to work? If so, we want you to join our team! This role needs a strong communicator with the ability to manage their own workload and actively support the wider team.

If you have a sincere interest in the Finance, Risk or Insurance industries, and are looking to build a long-lasting successful career, then look no further. We’re not asking for any prior underwriting experience as full training will be given.

We encourage our Assistant Underwriters to actively pursue opportunities to improve the efficiency of our customer and administration processes and procedures to assist GCS in achieving its targets.

Together, we'll be working towards providing a positive service, aiding our team of underwriters. This will include building a successful network of internal and external relationships, receiving and responding to enquiries and meeting high standards to ensure customer happiness.

Some of the day to day tasks involve:

Delivering business important metrics alongside our management team

Spotting & driving opportunities for service and operational improvements

Acting on feedback from customers, sharing ideas with managers & peers

Collaborating with our Trading Underwriter team in London to deliver and provide end to end policy management for large complex corporate risks

Taking personal responsibility for development in line with business strategy evidence through verbal and practical application

There will be occasional travel required to our London office

Skills & experiences we wish to see:

Proven record of delivering excellent customer outcomes

Experience in encouraging & building positive internal/external relationships

Track record of personal development and growth in previous roles

GCSE qualifications or equivalent in English and Mathematics

Good knowledge of IT including spreadsheets, databases and word processing

Previous underwriting experience is not essential as full training will be provided – however experience in Financial Services, Risk or a similar field would be advantageous

What will you get for this role?

A competitive salary depending on skills, experience and qualifications

Generous defined contribution pension scheme

Annual performance related bonus and pay review

Holiday allowance of 25 days plus bank holidays and the option to buy/sell up to 5 additional days

Up to 40% discount for some Aviva products through “My Aviva Extras” plus discounts for Friends and Family. (Some exclusions apply)

Excellent range of flexible benefits to include a matching share save scheme

Working at Aviva

At Aviva, we’re people with a purpose. To be with you today, for a better tomorrow.

We bring this to life by ensuring managing risk is at the heart of the way we all work. We love people who do the right thing for our customers, and our colleagues. We want people who speak up, who take responsibility, and who make good decisions.

The way we do this is important too. We always ‘Care More’. It’s our thing. We’re all about our people – that’s you – so we can be pretty flexible. If you want to work from home some of the time or change your hours so you can pick up your kids or care for someone in your family, we’re very open to that. In fact, we don’t advertise roles as either part or full time, because we know each person has different needs, just as each business area has different needs. So, it’s up to you to discuss working hours during your interview.

We care deeply about being inclusive and that means we encourage applications from people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We want our employees to bring their whole self to work and that starts with you.

We interview every disabled applicant* that meets the minimum criteria for the job . Just send us an email once you’ve applied stating that you have a disclosed disability and we’ll make sure we interview you.

We’d love it if you could submit your application online . If you require an alternative method of applying, please give Daniela a call on 0121 234 7660 or send an email to

*As defined in The Equality Act 2010 *. By ‘ minimum criteria’ we mean you should provide us with evidence which demonstrates that you generally meet the level of competence required and have the qualifications, skills or experience defined as essential to perform the role.

Make every future a success.
