Productive and Beneficial Company
Trainee Development Underwriter (Current Employee) – Maidenhead, Berkshire – 7 May 2017
Hiscox is a great company to work for if you have a passion for insurance. They respect their employees and provide them with the necessary support they need to advance.
A typical day would include answering the phone to help with broker queries, underwriting new policies and occasionally going to broker visits to provide training sessions on Hiscox products.
I learned more about brokers, as my previous role dealt directly with customers rather than using an intermediary and I also learnt different ways of underwriting risks.
The workplace has a strong culture where if you put the effort in, Hiscox will return that to you and help you progress in your career.
The hardest part of the job for me personally was the commute. It was a very long drive and it is not enjoyable.
The best part of the job is the support network around you. Everyone is willing to help and they will never turn you away.
Friendly co-workers, great culture
The commute was very long
