Industry: Accountancy & Insurance Department: Marine

What are the best and worst things about your job?

I am able to work some of my week in Lloyd's which is a great place to work. It enables me to see first hand underwriter/broker relationships and increase my knowledge of the insurance industry, particularly my own line of business that I work in. I have a good team/manager that allows me to be flexible and complete tasks in my own way. I have lots of responsibilities which means I am busy most days and especially at peak times (1/1 & 1/4).

Application Advice:

Take the time to research the goals and aims of the company before hand to get a good feel for how the company operates and how you can help fit into this. It is also important to be honest and open with your application as dishonesty will not be sustainable throughout the process. Ideally you want to be evaluating the company at the same time as they evaluate you in order to check that the company is somewhere that fits you.

Interview Advice:

Again, just be yourself and be honest. Try to relax and answer the questions in a considered and structured way. It often helps to prepare some answers to common questions beforehand so when the question is asked you have an answer or relevant scenario ready in your mind rather than having to think on the spot.

Graduate Trainee Underwriter, Rotational at Chaucer Syndicates
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Research the Lloyd's insurance market in detail and gain an understanding for how it's a Market (not an insurer) and the service it provides to its syndicates. Learn about Chaucer's lines of business, with thoughts towards which areas of underwriting are of particular interest and why. My main point would be to understand how specialist insurance is different e.g. to personal lines insurance and to show a genuine interest in the market. Also focus on why you want to work for Chaucer, looking at how it differentiates itself form its competitors.

Interview Advice:

There was a large focus on team work in the competency-based interview questions.

Application Advice:

During the application, always try to ensure you are answering any questions that are asked directly and carefully. However most importantly I would say that candidates should just be themselves and try to give and honest representation of the sort of person they are rather than trying to compensate or pretend to be someone else.

Interview Advice:

If possible, try not to be worried by the people who are interviewing you. Everyone is extremely friendly and they are not trying to catch you out. Just be yourself and allow the interviewers to see your personality.

Enterprise Risk Graduate, Exposure Management at Chaucer Syndicates
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The application procedure is quite lengthy, starting with a question to answer and providing a CV, then a online test, a phone interview, an assessment centre and then a final interview with managers of the department you are applying to work within.

Although each part of the application is challenging in some way, I think it is important to do your research for the first stage of the application and make sure you give a good answer to the question to get you through the starting gate. I found that everyone made an effort to make the assessment centre as un-scary as possible so don't panic too much!

Interview Advice:

Make sure you research the company and Lloyd's and really understand what your role entails. I think it is also important to remember that people employ people they like so try and relax and be yourself at the assessment centre, and ask for a moment to think if you're asked a question in an interview that you are not sure about.

Application Advice:

Research Lloyd's and the role you are applying for to get an understanding of what you can bring to Chaucer. There are many different departments which specialise in different things, and no-one will be suited to every role, therefore knowing what each role entails allows you to make the best decision on what to apply for.

Interview Advice:

Be relaxed at the assessement day and interview, no one is trying to catch you out. Do your research so you'll know why you want to apply for the role.

A wide range of backgrounds and different personalities. Everybody is very sociable.

Worst:

I believe that Chaucer has the ability to progress and become a larger company, but as usual there are some internal politics like every company and things could be more efficient to make it more of a top tier company.
