We’re looking for an ambitious, career-minded individual with a strong financial aptitude and outstanding people skills for a professional career in Contract Surety Underwriting.
As a Surety Underwriting Trainee, you’ll learn to produce and underwrite a profitable book of surety business by building and maintaining strong relationships with independent agents.
You’ll use your analytical and decision-making skills to evaluate risk and determine acceptability within company parameters. On-the-job training will help develop your ability to determine acceptability of surety submissions, perform analysis of financial statements, read applications, analyze credit reports, as well as learn to use other sources of investigation.
The training program will teach the employee to work toward a profitable and controlled level of growth by servicing the existing business and meeting or exceeding the Department annual goals and objectives. The program will show the employee how to make recommendations on existing accounts.
Through travel with other underwriters in the department, the employee will learn to make successful agency visits, conduct beneficial contractor visits, and market our contract surety products to existing and new agents. After three to four years of training, relocation to other UFG locations is a possibility, if all parties are agreeable to this.
