Development Underwriter Interview

Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, England (UK)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hiscox (Birmingham, England (UK)) in March 2017.

Interview

Process involved an initial interview with the RUM & team leader, which lasted about an hour. Following this there was a critical thinking test and then finally an interview with the Regional Manager and HR, with another short interview with the RUM based on technical questions. First interview focussed on my background, key attributes, what I thought I could bring to Hiscox and some competencies along with my career aspirations. Final interview was more based on competency based questions. Total process from first interview to job offer was 9 days. Turnaround of contract and documents was very efficient.

Interview Questions

  • Competency based questions in the main, particularly focussing on relationship building, teamwork and delivering on results. One of the questions was "Tell us about a key relationship you have developed that you are particularly proud of", which was followed by asking about the financials surrounding that relationship.   1 Answer
