Zurich’s underwriter training program is for recent graduates with the drive to become successful members of our underwriting team. While working in our training program, you will learn the fundamentals of multiline underwriting including measuring exposure, analyzing risk, pricing, quoting and setting coverage.
Upon successful completion of the classroom training, you will work in the field or a line-of-business office setting and will continue to work with your manager, mentor and peer underwriters to understand “The Zurich Way of Underwriting.” You will perform basic underwriting functions in a market-facing or product-underwriting role while continuing to develop your professional skills and create a strong foundation for your career in insurance.
As an underwriter, you will help your customers understand the risks they face, and how to best handle each risk. You will develop relationships with the brokers selling our policies and will be crucial in helping the organization achieve our growth strategy.
“I enjoy the financial and relationship sides of business, such as dealing with brokers and negotiating. Underwriting is a great combination of both of these and is diverse enough to keep each day challenging.” — Ryan, an Underwriter Trainee
