Underwriting began in London in the 1600s, in a coffee shop owned by Edward Lloyd - later Lloyd's of London. With such an impressive history in the capital, it is unsurprising that many major insurers - including Lloyd's of London, Aon and others - are headquartered in the City, offering a range of employment opportunities across a variety of roles within the industry.
London is home to both commercial and personal lines insurers, domestic and foreign businesses as well as large scale insurance brokers.
Pricing, product development, sales and marketing roles within insurance companies are all available in London, but it is worth bearing in mind that London-based insurers will often base their call centres outside of the city to save money: if it is a customer service or claims handling role that you are looking for, it may be worth looking further afield.
For any insurance role, it is important to use a recruitment agency that understands the industry. Whether you're an underwriter, a systems analyst or an account handler - the recruitment consultants listed below will be able to find you the perfect role in one of London's oldest and largest industries.
