Featured underwriting opportunities

Below are the current featured underwriting opportunities.

Underwriter trainee

Travelers underwriting development programs prepare participants for a career in underwriting. Through a structured program, underwriter trainees learn about our underwriting philosophy, business unit products and strategies, principles of negotiation and relationship building.

Underwriter trainees begin by handling renewal business under the supervision of an underwriter and move to developing new business as their skills develop. Participants are gradually given more responsibility within a line of business and eventually an apprenticeship territory.

Associate account executive

The associate account executive reports to the managing director of a business group and is responsible for the profitability, growth and retention of assigned book of business within an assigned territory.

In this entry-level position (i.e., one to three years of experience), responsibilities are similar to those of an account executive but for a smaller, less complex book of business. Associate account executives also:

  • Produce and underwrite new and renewal business in a market segment including building and maintaining productive relationships with assigned agents/brokers.
  • Consistently achieve budgeted financial results (premium, loss ratio, retention, commissions, pricing, new business, and expense management) through superior service, renewal retention and responsiveness to new business submissions.
  • Interact and collaborate with a team of market segment colleagues and other critical internal/external business associates.
  • Participate in outside and inside sales.

Qualified candidates have demonstrated a solid understanding of business line products, services and process and have undergone training in underwriting and marketing.
