The BTE Underwriting Manager (BTEUM) is primarily responsible for reviewing and controlling our BTE business risk exposure in line with the prescribed appetite. As such, the BTEUM manages the scheme application, set up and renewal processes, leads the underwriting assessment of BTE stand-alone business, oversees the performance of all scheme arrangements, whilst also handling escalations in respect of acceptance, pricing and performance and customer complaints. The BTEUM is therefore required to identify and lead the fulfilment of any technical training needs within the BTE Underwriting function and through a strict audit schedule, monitor and control the application of the internal delegated underwriting authorities within that team. The BTEUM must also assist in fostering our working relationships with key customers and capacity underwriters alike.

* Deal with technical & escalated underwriting queries primarily from within the function but sometimes from other stakeholders, ensuring both satisfactory resolution & the development of the company's knowledge of and capability to handle similar issues in the future.
* With the input of senior underwriting managers, the BTE sales function and other internal stakeholders, create and deliver function improvement projects that ensure we deliver market leading customer service. Visiting external customers / suppliers may be required.
