Our success is built on a foundation of trust because we know trust matters- not just to our customers and shareholders, but to our employees as well. We’re proud to offer a trustworthy, financially-stable environment that allows our employees to contribute to the success of the company while growing their own careers.
You’ll find that you’re able to see yourself in the big picture from day one. And the big picture at UFG isn’t just about your job. We encourage our employees to develop a work-life balance by taking advantage of our flexible work schedule options. Tuition reimbursement, a wellness program and paid community service hours are just a few of the additional benefits we offer to ensure our employees are happy and healthy at UFG.
In addition to traditional benefits including health insurance, paid time off and a 401(k) plan, these extra work-life balance perks and our positive, team-based culture helped earn us a “Top Workplace” designation for four consecutive years by the Des Moines Register. Our dedication to trust and conservative approach to fiscal responsibility has also earned us a spot on Forbes’ America’s Most Trustworthy Financial Companies” list every year since 2014.
We’re looking for an experienced leader with a background in surety claims or litigation to join our team as a Surety Claims Manager in our Cedar Rapids, IA office.
Reporting directly to the VP of Surety, you’ll use your knowledge of the surety industry, claims and the insurance legal and regulatory environment to manage a caseload of moderate to highly complex surety claims. Additionally, you’ll be responsible for supervising a five-person claims team and setting the operational strategy and direction for all Contract and Commercial Surety Claims.
Along with directing claims operations, and participating in mediations and negotiation settlements, you’ll also be providing leadership to the Surety claims team and acting as expert resource for other teams and business units at UFG.
