Beazley is currently searching for candidates to join our accelerated underwriting career development program, tailored for our Specialty and Property lines of business.
The program is composed of a one year training contract, which provides the opportunity to become a permanent underwriter in our Specialty Lines or Property Division. The training program is made up of three core rotations. Each rotation includes a structured training program, which provides opportunities for exposure across the business. Participants will receive regular assessments and one-on-one feedback along the way to promote success in the program.
The Selection Process
Beazley strives to ensure that our program candidates have the skills required to be successful future underwriters. The process will begin with a phone screen, followed by a formal assessment center, to be held at Beazley's Atlanta, GA office. This is a two day event, during which time, candidates will be assessed across a range of activities and interviews. The assessment center will also include aptitude and psychometric assessments.
Beazley will fully cover hotel, air fare and transportation costs for those travelling to the Atlanta area.
Candidates who successfully complete the assessment center will be invited to join Beazley's Underwriting Career Development Program.
What We Look For

This being said, candidates are expected to have strong analytical skills, and should be able to evaluate risks in order to make solid business decisions. We also expect candidates to have excellent interpersonal skills and to be results oriented, self-motivated, flexible, and enthusiastic.
More About Beazley
Beazley has been underwriting US risks since the company's formation in 1986. Since 2004 we have been building a strong local underwriting and claims presence across the US, while continuing to underwrite much US business - particularly relating to large and complex risks - at the Beazley box at Lloyd's in London.
We opened our first US office in Farmington, CT in 2004 to underwrite professional and management liability insurance on a surplus lines basis. Through our A rated admitted carrier, Beazley Insurance Company, Inc., we now underwrite a significant volume of business on an admitted basis as well. We have 12 offices across the country, including six "hub" offices (New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Dallas and Los Angeles) where we have multiple underwriting teams.
Our goal is to offer US retail and wholesale brokers and their clients a level of expertise and responsive service that is not always easy to find, particularly for mid-size and small risks. Our business is run on a non-hierarchical, non-bureaucratic model that empowers our experienced underwriters to make rapid decisions. We aim to offer brokers straight answers and first class service.
Our claims service similarly relies on highly experienced experts working within a non-bureaucratic structure. As in London, our claims professionals work alongside their underwriting colleagues as members of integrated teams.
