Are you an experienced Personal Lines Underwriter? Are you looking to advance in your career in the insurance industry? SGI CANADA is currently searching for our next Senior Underwriter (Personal Lines) located in Toronto (Etobicoke or North York), however flexible remote work options are available!
In this role, you will establish and maintain relationships with assigned brokers and manage and grow a profitable book of personal auto and property business with emphasis on excellent service standards. You will examine the nature and degree of risk involved, negotiate conditions with our brokers and explain SGI CANADA’s underwriting approach and appetite to brokers. Our focus is on growing a profitable portfolio that you will be directly responsible for managing. If you have demonstrated a progressive background in personal lines underwriting, you may just be what we are looking for!
