Job description:
Position Summary
This posting will be active for an extended period of time to gather a strong pool of candidates as ERIE is hiring multiple Underwriting Trainees. Applicants that are selected to move to the next steps of the process will be contacted beginning in late February, 2018. The target start date for the UnderwritingTrainees is May 17, 2018.
Opportunity to join our Underwriting Trainee Program
Underwriting Program
Our enhanced five-month training program prepares candidates for a career in Underwriting, both personal and commercial lines of business. We are currently hiring high-potential candidates to join our combined training program that will commence this summer. Our recent graduates reported that the program successfully laid a strong foundation for their future success. Insurance underwriters are “gatekeepers” who ultimately decide which risks ERIE and its Agents should accept and retain. It's obviously an important job and we are excited to now offer consolidated commercial and personal lines training.
Who should apply?
There is typically no straight path to becoming an underwriter. Many people aren't even aware such a job exists, and only a handful of colleges and universities offer risk management programs. This new program gives interested individuals comprehensive training to successfully prepare them for the role. Candidates should have a college degree; a background in insurance is helpful, but not required. Good underwriters need strong decision making, relationship building, communication and research skills.
How the program works
The five-month Underwriting Program is designed to give trainees a bird's eye view of the job. It includes both classroom time and hands-on training with underwriters. Each trainee is also assigned a formal mentor to shadow. After the trainees graduate from the program, they become underwriters, are integrated into the division based on workload need and will continue to help and shadow current underwriters. When ready, they typically receive their assigned territory and Agents with whom they will regularly service.
A rewarding path
As frontline decision makers, underwriters have significant potential to impact ERIE's bottom line. They also have many opportunities for professional growth. You can progress from underwriter I to levels II, Senior and Consultant. Next, you can consider supervisory or management positions or use your skills in another area of the company.
There are twelve positions for the program.
