Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to apply your analytical and communication skills? The Travelers Business Insurance Underwriting Professional Development Program (UPDP) is a highly structured training program that provides you with the foundation for a strong underwriting future.
Underwriters are the heart of the insurance process, using finely tuned analytical skills to evaluate the acceptability of business and institutional risk. However, underwriters are more than just analysts – they are the relationship builders with our agents and clients. They are responsible for managing a profitable portfolio of business through our distributing agents and brokers. An underwriting career includes a dynamic blend of analytical and selling skills – it’s stimulating, exciting and a great career for the right individual.
The UPDP is designed to develop skills in insurance coverage, underwriting, sales and product knowledge through a structured program that combines classroom training and experiential learning with individualized coaching and mentoring. This is a yearlong multi-faceted program that gives participants the business and technical skills they need to understand the core of our business and to launch their careers as successful Travelers underwriters.
This development program is a combination of training in the local field office (under the guidance of a manager and a mentor/coach) and classroom-based technical and sales training sessions at Travelers’ largest campuses in Hartford, Conn., and Saint Paul, Minn.
The field office on-the-job training includes an online curriculum, hands-on account work, agency visits and networking opportunities. The classroom-based technical and sales training sessions are taught by coverage and subject matter experts and include interactive learning activities. Participants also have meetings with Travelers senior management, take tours of Travelers Risk Control Laboratory and Claim University and network with other UPDP participants from across the country.
Positions are available in various offices across the United States.
