What is it like working as an Assistant Underwriter?
Assistant Underwriter in London:
Pros: Varied topics and occupancy of risks, broker relations - working face to face with a variety of people. Being in the City - Lloyds. Site visits, travel opportunities. Use maths, wording knowledge, project work, indepth research and reading, geographical spread of risk and people contact, very varied skill base required but nothing to a ridiculously high standard.
Cons: Quiet/ down time can be boring. Waiting for authority is frustrating. Everyone knows everyone - quite gossipy.
