Does building a regional book of business with the support of a national insurance company sound exciting to you? How about meeting construction professionals and participating in industry-wide surety and construction functions?

Are you someone who is able to analyze financial statements and use them to understand the “big picture”?

As a field underwriter, you will use your financial analysis, research and analytical skills to evaluate risk for the surety team.
