By joining our business, you will become a key member of a growing Facultative Reinsurance Client Servicing team in Ipswich, working alongside sales and broking colleagues in London, our global network offices, our direct clients and our operational team in Mumbai.
There will be the opportunity for remote home working, alongside the more traditional office-based role.
We place bespoke facultative reinsurance solutions for our diverse client base, ranging from large and small overseas insurance companies, local insurers and Lloyd’s Syndicates.
We are an integral part of the end-to-end client servicing function, beginning with the discussions with our clients to establish their reinsurance requirements alongside our brokers, through to the completion of the reinsurance product.
This can take the form of face-to-face meetings or conference calls with the client, as well as the reinsurance market, to tailor a structured reinsurance programme to meet our clients’ needs.
We work closely with the London market brokers during the process to assist them with the co-ordination of the placement, keeping the client up to date on progress.
We are an agile working team and utilise the skills and proximity of the London market as required, to fulfil the clients’ requirements.
The role encompasses regular client and underwriter contact, either in person (whether in our office or at their location), or via all other available communication methods.
